What Does Landscape Maintenance Include? 7 Landscaping Services to Expect

Pucker up. 

When you hire a great full-service landscape maintenance company, you can pretty much kiss your landscaping worries goodbye.

Will they make your grass healthy and green? Yes!

Keep your irrigation system running smoothly? You bet! 

Tidy up your yard after the big yucky messes spring and fall leave behind? Absolutely!

As long as they’re there, will they clean out your garage and maybe secure that saggy gutter? 

Well, no. Don’t be greedy.

What does residential landscape maintenance include?

A lot. Here’s a look.

1. Weekly Lawn Maintenance? Included! 

You get the whole shebang — mowing, trimming, edging, and blowing off of all walks and paved areas. 

At Outback, we collect and haul away all the grass clippings. Wait a minute — isn’t mulching them better? Good question.

Here in Idaho, mulching lawn clippings works in the hottest summer months. But in other seasons, we don’t have the high temperatures and humidity needed to break down the grass clippings between mowings.

Those excess grass clippings can be a real nuisance, sticking to your shoes or bare feet, staining your kids’ clothes and getting tracked into the house.

Bagging the clippings keeps everything neater.

2. What Does Landscape Maintenance Include? Fertilizing and Weed Control

This super important duo keeps your lawn well-fed and reduces weeds with perfectly timed treatments throughout the seasons.

If you’ve tried doing this yourself, you already know that keeping track of all the application times and amounts and maneuvering through a garage stuffed with bulky bags of products is a huge pain. How many times have you stubbed your toe on that stupid spreader?

3. Mulch! Yay, It’s a Service! 

Don’t get us started on the awesomeness of mulch. 

Too late.

Bark mulch conserves water so you need less irrigation. It keeps your plants’ roots cozy in cold weather and cool in summer’s heat.

Mulch keeps rain from washing away your soil, keeps weeds from popping up, adds nutrients to your soil, and just plain looks great, adding a tidy, uniform appearance to your beds.

You need it.

4. Pond Maintenance? Sure, Why Not? 

Need somebody to drop by to check on your pond, keep your filters clear of debris, maintain the water quality, and winterize it for you in the fall?

Yup, that’s a landscape maintenance service.

5. What Does Landscape Maintenance Include? Irrigation Services

Don’t ignore your sprinkler system. Get your watering season off on the right track with a spring irrigation start up. Irrigation technicians will turn on your water in the spring, set your clock, adjust all your sprinklers and check the irrigation zones.

Then, woo hoo, they’ll be back in the fall to winterize it to prevent freezing.
