Everyone appreciates a well-kept lawn, but it’s no secret that they need a significant amount of time and effort. Not every homeowner has the time to dedicate to appropriate grass upkeep. Lawn neglect, on the other hand, has some major consequences. 

Here are five reasons why you should put in the effort to keep up with your yard work:

Adds to Curb Appeal & Value

Having your lawn in great condition improves the curb appeal of your property. If you intend to sell the house at some time, buyers will be more interested in a home with a well-kept lawn. A weedy, untidy lawn may reduce the value of not just your property, but also the properties around it.

Prevents Growth of Invasive Weeds

Ignoring the weeds that naturally thrive in a neglected yard makes it far more difficult to eliminate them if you spend the effort to get the lawn up to speed. Weeds, if allowed to mature, can produce hundreds of seeds that will anchor in the soil and spread around the area. Weeds will soon dominate the turf, and the grass will have to fight hard to reclaim its area.

Prevents Pests

Proper maintenance of your lawn would help in eradicating pests. Insects love to dig and eat your grass, it is also the preferred location for overwintering beetle species and other pests. A professional landscaping firm can detect the individual pests that are killing your grass and provide the appropriate remedy at the appropriate time.

Aids in Nutritional Needs of the Soil

Every lawn should be given a nutritious meal twice a year to maintain it lush and healthy. Because most residential lawns have an insufficient layer of adequate topsoil in which to develop, the plant ultimately depletes the nutrients in the soil and begins to thin out and fail to thrive. Every year, a healthy spring feeding and a pre-winter booster spray will satisfy your turf’s needs.
