Home Lawn Maintenance – Richmond Hill Yard Renovation Guide

Like any other part of the home, a landscape needs regular maintenance and care to stay vibrant and healthy. It it’s neglected long enough, your yard will get to the point where a complete landscape renovation is needed. Even with regular attention from green thumbs, an older planting bed or lawn may eventually need significant work to revitalize it.

Here are a few of the signs you need to invest more time in your landscape. If you would rather not handle your own planting work and lawn maintenance, Richmond Hill has qualified landscaping companies.

Lawn in Poor Condition

A lawn that is patchy, uneven and filled with brown spots is a clear sign that your landscape is in need of some work. The lawn is often the first thing that visitors notice about your home. A lush, green lawn makes a good impression.

If you are not sure about the steps needed to revive your lawn, talk to a Richmond Hill lawn care service. They can diagnose your turf problems and make recommendations. More than any other part of your yard, lawns need regular maintenance to look their best.

Overgrown Shrubs and Trees

Many shrubs and small ornamental trees eventually become too large for the space they are in. Mature foundation plantings that are covering windows is common in homes 10 to 15 years old. Older shrubs will often have grown together, with some healthy foliage around the edges and lots of dense, dying branches near the middle of the plants.

If this sounds like any of your planting beds, it may be time to remove the older shrubs and start again. Severe pruning is another way to revive old shrubs, but it often takes longer for them to recover than it does for new shrubs to grow.

Plants Escaping Beds

It is nice to have perennials and groundcovers that spread a little further every year, but, like older shrubs, they eventually outgrow their place in the garden. If some of your spreading landscape plants have taken over your yard, it’s time to renovate.

The biggest sign that it’s time to redo your landscape is when you no longer enjoy being outside or feel overwhelmed thinking about all of the yardwork that needs to be done. If this is the case, you may need professional help! Talk to your Richmond Hill landscape experts about the steps involved in renovating your landscape. Remember, the work does not all have to be done at once. One planting bed or project per year or season is all that most homeowners are prepared for; it’s enough to start making a difference in how your yard looks.

  • Great Service Calgary North
    As retirees who now travel, we need to be able to trust those who look after our home and yard. Kory and his staff did an amazing job, and for a very fair price. After we returned from a vacation our neighbors shared that Kory and his team completed the snow shoveling exactly as was scheduled; even on the bitterly cold days! We will continue to hire Kory each time we are on vacation.
