Why hire a professional lawn care service?
It is easier than ever these days to tackle home projects yourself thanks to YouTube and endless internet search options. While we applaud the initiative of D.I.Y. (do-it-yourself) homeowners, it may not be the right choice when it comes to caring for your lawn. Here are 5 reasons you should hire a professional lawn care service this summer.
Protect your family from ticks
With the news encouraging everyone to stay home, many (including pets) in the Omaha metro are spending more time in the backyard enjoying the return of warm weather. Paradise Lawns loves to help our clients achieve healthy, lush lawns. We also strive to educate and protect people from potential backyard risks, even when they aren’t making front page news. We are talking about ticks. Knowledge is key to staying safe, so let’s find out more about these common parasites and learn what can be done to prevent them and keep you safe this summer.
Is your Omaha lawn care plan battle-ready against weeds?
Omaha lawn care can be tricky, especially when it feels like a different season each day. Easter weekend was a prime example. Saturday, April 11th was a beautiful 70-degree day. Neighbors were out doing yard work and several commented that they were out to mow before the snow. You heard that right. Snow. Sunday’s temperatures were 30-40 degrees colder with 50+ mile winds and snow flurries. Although we can’t be certain about the weather from day-to-day, we can trust that days are getting longer; the soil is getting warmer and weeds will soon start to appear.
Now is the time to prepare to battle weeds. To have an advantage, it is good to arm yourself with knowledge about weeds common in the Omaha metro area. By learning how to identify common Midwest weeds as well as what you can do to protect your lawn, you can win the battle against weeds!
Timing is everything
This past Sunday, approximately 100 million people tuned in to watch the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers in the 2020 Super Bowl. Training and teamwork got them to the Super Bowl, but timing determined the winner in the end. Unless each throw, tackle or catch is timed just right, the play isn’t successful. The ability to know when the time is right is an important element in many aspects of our lives, not just when we play sports. However, it is often overlooked until failure results from poor timing. You may wonder why a lawn care company is talking about timing and the Super Bowl. Even though the two don’t seem to have much in common, both football and lawn care treatments need to be accurately timed in order to succeed. Fertilizing too early or too late may result in future problems, so timing is vital for your lawn’s success.

No need to worry! Fall is still the best time for lawn care.
In response to the cool Midwest temperature, weeds slow their growth and prepare for winter by pulling nutrients and starches from their leaves into their roots. This means the roots remain active and need excess nutrients so they can grow strong in the spring. When you winterize your lawn in the fall with using simple lawn care steps like fertilization, weed control, and lawn renovation, you help create lush, green grass in the spring and stave off those pesky weeds! Paradise Lawns is your best choice for an Omaha lawn fertilization company when it comes to fall fertilization. read more →
