Property Maintenance All Year Round










If you own a home and have a property to maintain. You must maintain proper property maintenance throughout the entire year. Your home is an investment and the outside of your home is a reflection of that investment.  If you don't maintain your property regularly throughout the year you could find yourself a problem with unhealthy diseased plants and even unwanted pests. Regular maintenance can keep your lawn and plants healthy free of pests and save you money in the long run.
Let's talk about the most important things that you need to do for your property to keep it maintained year-round.

  •  Weekly Mowing 
Remember what I said, that your home was an investment?
Well, making sure you maintain a well-cut lawn is an important part of that investment.
It adds to your homes "Curb Appeal". At some point, you may want to sell your home and buyers pay more attention to homes with a well-maintained property. It's not just about the look. Having your lawn mowed every week helps keep your lawn healthy.

  •  Spring Clean up
Spring clean up is an important process to maintaining the health of your lawn. During the winter season snow that may have been left on your lawn can cause snow mold. This is a visible infection that can infect your lawn and leave patches of unhealthy grass. Salt can also cause damage to your lawn and leave behind brown patches. Broken branches limbs and debris can also be a problem. If the debris is left in your yard it can cause additional damage and harbor unwanted pests and disease. Having your bushes and shrubs pruned and dead plants removed can prevent the disease from spreading throughout your lawn.

  • Mid-Season Garden Bed Clean up 
It is important to have your garden beds cleaned up midseason because WEEDS grow EVERDAY!
If you want to maintain a beautiful flower bed or vegetable garden and help protect it you want to have your beds cleaned.  It also helps to have your garden beds cleaned midseason so you can be made aware of any unwanted pests or diseased plants. Sometimes critters can find a home in your garden and maintaining it properly can limit hiding places and damaged plants.

  • Fall Clean up
Leaves decay fast so you want to make sure you are raking your property of all leaves and debris regularly. Fall maintenance helps prevent bacteria, fungus, and spores that can be harmful or even deadly to your plants. Another reason fall clean up is so important is it helps prevent unwanted pests. A pile of leaves makes a great hiding place for pests and even small animals. Keeping your lawn free of leaves and debris allows your lawn to absorb nutrients and oxygen it needs to survive the winter.

In a nutshell. Maintaining your property creates VALUE and keeps your lawn HEALTHY!

The responsibility of maintaining a property year-round can be a lot of work! We hope you found this article helpful on why it's so important.

Top 3 Fall Clean Up Tips





TOP 3 FALL CLEAN UP TIPS

Fall is a beautiful time of year! The colorful leaves that have fallen from the trees brighten the landscape with hues of orange-red and yellow. They are fun to play and jump in as a kid but as an adult, they can be quite a beautiful mess. Here are our top 3 fall tips for you this season.


1. Fall clean up should be performed anywhere from mid-Oct. to the end of Dec.

To keep your property properly maintained you want to perform a fall clean up about 3 times every 7 to 10 days. Fall clean up is an important part of maintaining your lawn. It allows your grass to breathe through the fall and grow roots that will last through the winter.

2. Blow or rack all the leaves and debris out of the yard, shrubbery, and garden beds.

This will help to keep your garden and your yard growing and healthy. Leaving an excessive amount of leaves through fall into the winter can attract unwanted pests and disease as discussed before in one of our previous articles posted. See article on "Winterizing Your Property"

3. Trim all shrubbery including seasonal shrubbery.

When you keep your shrubs trimmed you have a better chance of keeping away pests that spread disease. They may not kill a plant but they can weaken a plant and could cause fallen branches. Another reason to have your shrubs trimmed is healthy plants have a better chance of making it through the winter.

These are just our Top 3 Fall Clean Up Tips For The Season but depending on your property and its needs it could be more involved than just these 3 steps. We hope this article was helpful.

Winterizing Your Property 101




Winterizing Your Property 101

There are a few things you want to do before the winter season approaches to prepare your lawn. If you are not familiar with winterizing your lawn we would like to explain why winterizing your lawn is so crucial and why it's important to do it before it gets too cold.

First, it is important to remove your lawn of all sticks, leaves and, debris. If your lawn is covered in leaves and you leave it through the winter season it can invite unwanted pests and even diseases. It can also cause problems like discolored grass and snow mold. If you have never heard of "snow mold" it is a type of fungus that kills the grass after the snow melts. Fungal spores from the snow mold can actually cause allergies and asthma attacks. Make sure you are thoroughly cleaning your property of all debris including the garden beds and have it removed off of your property as soon as possible.

As far as lawn care goes, you want to make sure all your shrubbery and trees are properly trimmed. This helps avoid any damage to your home from any falling branches due to heavy snow, ice or wind.

Finally depending on what type of grass you have you want to make sure you are fertilizing your lawn properly before the winter season starts. Do your research on the appropriate fertilizer to use and when to apply it. There are a few other lawn treatments that will benefit you come spring. Aerating your grass is one of them. Aerating your grass allows nutrients and water to reach the roots fast and easily and prevents the soil from becoming compacted or too hard. Another lawn treatment is over-seeding. Early or late fall is a perfect time to reseed any patchy or bare spots of grass you may have.

I hope this article was helpful. I know all this sounds like a lot but it doesn't have to be if you have the proper lawn care company to do it for you! Buzz Cut would love to handle all your winterizing needs and save you the stress and headache. We service Exton, Downingtown, Malvern, Chester Springs, and Phoenixville area.

Do You Have A Snow Removal Contract



Do You Have A Snow Removal Contract ?

In this article, you will find some very helpful information on why having a snow removal contract in place before the winter season is so important.

Winter begins every year between Dec. 20th and Dec 23rd but when we will receive snowfall is always unpredictable.

As you know the weather forecasts aren't always reliable. You cannot predict how many snow storms you may have or the amount of snowfall you may receive throughout the winter ahead of time. This is one reason why it is important to set up a winter snow removal contract before the winter season starts. This way when snow does fall you will be prepared and have a contract in place

If you want to get ahead of the game, it is suggested to get a snow removal contract in the summer. Yes, I said summer and you can save some money by doing this. Early in the season, many contractors offer discounts to attract new business.

One thing you don't want to do is wait for the last min. to get a contract. You may be limited to resources if you wait for the last min. and that could cause your business not to be shoveled or removed of ice properly. Which could result in an accident or someone getting hurt?

Finally, make sure you obtain a contract with an ensured experienced contractor.
You want to make sure the services will be covered under adequate insurance in case any damage is done to the property. If you already have a snow contract in place make sure you ask them to show you their insurance policy and explain the scope of service.

I hope this has been helpful information for your business when coming into the winter season!

5 Tips On Why Spring Clean Up Is So Important


 5 Tips On Why Spring Clean Up Is So Important 

1. During the winter months, there could have been tree branches and debris that may have fallen in your yard due to snow and Ice. This may have caused damage to your yard. Make sure you have all fallen trees, tree stumps, tree branches and debris removed from your yard. This helps keep your yard free of debris when mowing and caring for your lawn in the spring and summer months.


2. The winter months can be tough on a lawn, you may need lawn aeration -Check your lawn for wet areas, all wet areas should be raked and cleared of debris. Lawn aeration will help the grass stay healthy after being in overly wet conditions


3. Make sure you are installing the proper grass seed mix -Choosing the right grass seed is important because these mixtures are not one-size-fits-all. You want to get a grass seed that fits your specific lawn needs.


4. Prune any broken branches or trees- If you have any damaged or dead branches they should be removed as soon as possible. Insects are attracted to dead branches and once they establish there they can spread into healthy wood. The best time to prune is in late winter, early spring, just before the tree begins to open its buds.


5. Have your lawn fertilized properly - Fertilizer can help your lawn stay healthy and encourage leaf and root growth and reduce weeds. It can also help your lawn get nutrients it needs after recovering from the winter season.

I hope these were some helpful tips! It may sound like a lot. But caring for your lawn doesn't have to be if you have the right landscaping company!
