Keeping the yard healthy and beautiful throughout the year is something every homeowner wishes. But often, people fail to maintain their yard due to lack of time or various other “excuses”. If the yard outside your window worries you more than anything, it’s time you consider professional yard maintenance.

  1. Dying Vegetation

Your yard needs maintenance when you find that your plants, shrubs, trees, and even lawn grass are turning yellow or brown and withering too fast.

  1. Uneven Dead Patches

Your yard needs maintenance when you find bald yard patches or patches with withering plants and grass surrounded by healthy, lush plantations.

  1. Weed and Crabgrass Invasion

Your yard needs maintenance when you find unwanted crabgrass and various kinds of weed growth on the fallow land of your lawn, dead patches, or around your plants and shrubs.

  1. Overgrown Vegetation

Your yard needs maintenance when you notice your trees, shrubs, plants, and grass have crossed the desired heights and have become too tall and unmanageable. This can occur when you don’t regularly maintain a perfect lawn level.

  1. Lawn Diseases

Your yard needs maintenance when you find your lawn turning yellow or brown, even after proper maintenance of your plants, shrubs and trees.

  1. Unhealthy or Inappropriate Soil

Your yard needs maintenance when you notice soil erosion in your yard. Also, look for hard, compacted soil or saline soil. Such soil types will stunt the growth of your vegetation.

  1. Increasing Insects and Pests

Your yard needs maintenance when you see the multiplying population of pests, insects, worms, etc. Some pests and insects are beneficial for your yard, but many are not, especially when they are in larger numbers.

  1. Grubs and Rodents Sightings

Your yard needs maintenance when you find milky-white beetle larvae feeding on grass roots and rodents roaming around in your lawn. These animals can entirely destroy your lawn and leave dead spots.

  1. Poor Drainage

Your yard needs maintenance when you find pooling or puddles of water in certain parts of your lawn. Constantly running off of water also signals you have a poor drainage problem.

  1. Swampy or Marshy Yard

Your yard needs maintenance when you find soft but swampy soil in your yard. Poor drainage along with rainfall or waterlogging can lead to a swampy, muddy, or a marshy yard.

  1. Inadequate or More Than Needed Irrigation

Your yard needs maintenance when you notice that your yard is receiving less or more water. Vegetation can die due to excessive water or due to drying if it receives less water.

  1. Sunlight Problems

Your yard needs maintenance when your yard receives less or a lot of sunlight.

  1. Unmaintained and Unmanaged Yard for a Very Long Time

Your yard needs maintenance when your lawn is neglected or unmaintained for a very long time. You will find out growing or withering plants, shrubs, grass, uneven lawn structure, and too many pests and animals.
