Lawn Care Tip: Shrinking your lawn

by on September 29, 2011

Many homeowners want a beautiful landscape and property, but just don’t have the time to keep up with expansive lawns. Or, there are parts of your lawn that aren’t growing as well as the rest of your turf, resulting in an uneven-looking landscape. Luckily, there are a few tricks to lessen the amount of work and create a smaller lawn that is still enjoyable, but just less work.

Lawn care experts will be able to suggest grass alternatives for the parts of your lawn that aren’t growing as well. There are a myriad of choices to shrink your turf without taking away aesthetic appeal, including moss and clover. These two choices do not require much, if any, maintenance and essentially are left to grow and be enjoyed! Groundcover alternatives are also ideal for those areas of your lawn that you have a hard time mowing, such as slopes. Imagine the contrast of a beautifully maintained lawn against the velvety look of moss or the whimsical appearance of clover. While your lawn care company will still be keeping your existing turf in perfect condition, you will now have less to worry about, especially when those areas are resistant to growth.

Another good reason to shrink your lawn is for the betterment of your other plants. Any damage your trees or shrubs experience could have detrimental effects on their health. By devoting a portion of your existing turf to a “tree and shrub only” area, your lawn care company will be able to mow and edge without worrying about affecting other plant life.

If you think resizing your lawn will add charisma and simplicity to your landscape, call your lawn care company and ask for a professional opinion! They will be more than happy to help you get your lawn care agenda set in motion.
