What Your Lawn Needs This January

Not only is it a new month, but a new year.This year lets add regular lawn maintenance to your list of new year resolutions. The lawn is one of the first things someone will see of your home. You always want to make a great first impression, so this year lets make your lawn look great.

In the month of January there are a few things you should do to get your lawn prepared for the new year. Below are a list of services Total Lawn Care is prioritizing this January.

Pine Straw Installation

Why get pine straw in January?

Other than the 15% off discount Total Lawn Care gives in January, it is the best time of the year to get a new bedding of pine straw. The pine needles have just fallen from the winter, creating the yearly supply of pine straw. Pine straw will always be the freshest in January meaning it looks the best and will last longer than if you put it down later in the year. In January most of the plants and grasses are dormant for the winter, but a fresh bedding of pine straw will give your lawn some life and help with the aesthetic of the home. The lawn will begin to get very busy in the spring and summer. With so many new plants and grass growing, it's nice to not have to worry about getting pine straw put down.

What are the benefits of pine straw?

Pine straw is a high-quality bedding material for your trees and plants. A pine straw covering adds beauty to your landscape while deterring weeds. It is insect and rodent-free, adheres well to slopes, and will not wash away during heavy rain. Pine straw is great to help with erosion. It keeps enough moisture in the ground to help the plants within your landscape beds, but not enough to promote fungus growth.

Why should I get a professional to do my pine straw?

Doing Pine Straw can be a lot of work. That's why at Total Lawn Care we have a team of professionals that can do it for you. With over 20 years of experience, our experts will bring the bales of pine straw to you and install it in no time while always putting in the perfect amount that you'll need for the new year.

Mulch Installation

Mulch is a higher quality landscape bedding material that adds a lot to the aesthetic of your lawn and home. Total Lawn Care offers all the different colors of mulch including red, black, and brown. Mulch will last throughout the entirety of the year. Because of this, getting new mulch at the beginning of the year is preferable for most of our customers. This is also why Total Lawn Care offers a 15% off discount to all customers getting mulch in February.

What are the benefits of mulch?

Mulch is one of the best investments you can make for your landscape beds. This is one of the most effective methods of weed control. It is one of the solutions that we typically provide for our clients who are experiencing problems with weeds in their shrub and flower beds.

Generally speaking, mulch is a material that is applied to the soil that serves several purposes. It not only inhibits the growth of weeds but is also used as a way to increase the concentration of nutrients in the soil. Mulch helps to protect the root system of the plants and keeps moisture in the soil during droughts.

Winter Cut Back

What are winter cut backs?

January and February are the times of year to make sure all the perennials, decorative grasses, rose bushes, crape myrtles, and all the shrubs are cut back to size. These plants need to be cut back in the winter for optimal growth in the upcoming spring season. There is also less stress on the plant when cutting it in the winter, and it's more manageable to shape the plant at this time. If you want beautiful landscape beds this spring now is the time to act. 

Total Lawn Care is proud to offer winter cutbacks. Here at Total Lawn Care, we have all the equipment and expertise to cut back or reshape your plants so your landscape beds are not grown or out of control this coming spring.
