Landscaping maintenance also goes by the name groundskeeping and it is the art of keeping the landscape
attractive, clean, healthy, and safe. It is important to do landscaping maintenance because it keeps away animals
from the lawn, it avoids conflicts with the neighbors and with the local authorities, it makes the lawn beautiful

It is important to do landscaping maintenance to your lawn because it will keep you on the
right side of the local laws, you will avoid conflicts with your neighbors, you will have a place to pass your time
and to bond with family members, your lawn will be beautiful, and you will keep away animals and insects. The
internet is the best place to do this research since it is a cheap and a convenient source of information. You can
also research from home maintenance magazines and by consulting experts. You should research on the best methods of
landscaping maintenance, on the best fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides to use, on the best plants, on the best
time to do landscaping maintenance, and on other relevant issues.
In spring and winter months, landscaping maintenance involves watering the plants, weeding, applying fertilizer,
and keeping animals, insects, and worms away. You should remove the weeds manually because herbicides can cause
harm to your pets, family members, and the environment. When weeding and when keeping away pests, you should avoid
the use of chemical based pesticides and herbicides to protect the environment and to prevent the poisoning of
family members and pets.
You should always make sure your lawn gets enough water. The plants need these nutrients during the winter
months if they are to be strong and to enable them to ‘explode’ on the onset of spring. Different plants need
different fertilizers and different quantities of fertilizer and you should therefore research on this.
On the onset of winter, remove debris such as logs, branches and toys from the lawn. Groundskeepers are
professionals who have theoretical knowledge on groundskeeping and who have experience. This experience and
theoretical knowledge is important because they know the best plants for you, they know where to get the plants,
they know the best fertilizers to use, they know the best time to do landscaping maintenance, and they can offer
you advice on how to make your lawn better. You can also buy home improvement magazines.
Watering is very important in lawn maintenance. In autumn, you should apply fertilizer to your plants to prepare
them for winter. Evenings and mornings are the best time to water your lawn and you should use a sprinkler. In
spring and summer, just water and weed your lawn.
