With so many options and resources available for your at-home yard care, it can be difficult to know where or how to start. Should you fill your garage with expensive equipment and products that constantly need to be repaired and replenished? Should you trust the neighbor kids down the street who go door-to-door looking for a quick buck? Or, instead, you could call one of the most reputable yard care companies in Virginia for all of your full property maintenance needs!
Potomac Lawn Professionals has a well established business presence in the D.C. metro area, which is exactly what you want when it comes to a full-service lawn care company. It takes a great deal of dedication to properly care for an entire property all year long, and you don’t want to trust that responsibility to just anyone. Our technicians have the knowledge, experience, and skills necessary to be your full property maintenance provider.
It is always our goal to give you the best results possible when we provide you with our individual services; however, yard care involves perpetual needs, and the effects of any singular service will eventually fade without aftercare or complimenting services. In order to give your yard long-lasting results, all the services below will be provided throughout the year, as needed, when you sign up for full property maintenance.
Your lawn may not be getting enough nutrients, which results in grass drying out and dying. Weeds sprouting up in your lawn will take away the nutrition needed by your turfgrass. By removing weeds as we lay down fertilizer, we can give your lawn the proper nutrition it may have been lacking.
Keeping your lawn trimmed and neat is an essential part of any yard care routine. We will visit your property every week to make sure your grass is maintained at a healthy height and your hardscape areas are edged and crisp at all times. Weekly mowing is also a great way to manage/prevent weed growth.
As autumn approaches, leaves will inevitably fall into your yard and gardens. Leaves should be removed promptly in order to preserve the health of your lawn and plants, and we will happily take care of all the raking and bagging for you! If desired, we can even remove the bags from your property and dispose of them. This service is a great compliment to our garden maintenance service and our aeration service.
Core aeration is one of the most underutilized residential yard care services, but its benefits are undeniable. When fertilization and watering are not enough to cure bare or thinning spots on your lawn, aerating and seeding at the same time could give your yard the boost it needs by enabling your soil to breathe and absorb more nutrition. Results from aeration and seeding will always be maximized by proper aftercare, which includes every lawn maintenance service we provide.
After removing obstructions from your garden and flower beds, we will apply a spring fertilizer to the soil. The type of fertilizer used at this stage is designed to promote healthy root development for lawns that are emerging for the first time after winter. This treatment will get your garden beds looking lush and full again in no time.
Maintenance for shrubs, perennials, ornamental plants under 15 ft, and more will take place once in late summer and once in early fall. Efforts will primarily focus on pruning and trimming to maintain the health and shape of your plants, but tasks like edging and removing dead wood can also be performed to give you a full-service shrub pruning experience.
This service is designed to get your garden beds looking great early in the growing season. We will remove debris, such as leaves, sticks, pinecones, etc., in order to allow your plants to grow freely, as well as to prepare your lawn for mulching and weeding. Our technicians will also edge around your garden beds for eye-catching definition.
In order to get the most out of spring fertilization treatments, our specialists will apply a pre-emergent weed control solution in your garden beds. These weed control treatments target weeds that have gone dormant in the soil over winter and any new seeds that may be attempting to germinate. Attempting to prevent these weeds from emerging early in the springtime will help ensure that your plants get enough nutrients to bloom and impress your neighbors!
Once during the winter months, our specialists will return to your property to make sure everything in your garden beds is still in good health and condition. As needed, we will remove debris, prune shrubbery, trim plants, and perform any other maintenance tasks that may be needed to get your gardens ready for spring!
Between April and October, we will weed your garden beds every month to keep those areas of your yard looking beautiful and healthy. Staying on top of weed control needs is crucial in garden beds, as weeds can quickly destroy all the hard work you have put into maintaining your flowers and plants.
Adding mulch to your garden beds and/or inside tree rings is an easy way to give your yard a pop of color while also improving soil quality. Installing mulch can help with pest control, weed control, moisture retention, and much more. Once in fall, we will deliver, install, and/or replenish areas of your yard that contain mulch.
After the leaves have fallen and winter starts inching closer, our specialists will clean your gutters to keep them free of any tree debris or other obstacles. This is a one-time service that takes place in fall, and you can rest assured that we will get your gutters completely cleared before we are finished.
While we do promise to provide you with the best yard care results possible, there is only so much that can be done if any of these essential services are neglected. The benefits of certain services are enhanced by the effects of other services, and sometimes results of one service depend entirely on following through with a different service. See the brief explanations below that further explain the importance of utilizing multiple services.
Weeds grow rapidly and often masquerade as regular turfgrass. If you only mow your lawn and never apply weed control measures, you may not even know you have a weed problem until it’s too late and your lawn becomes overrun by harmful weeds.
Fallen leaves and tree debris can decompose and contribute to thatch buildup, which is exactly what core aeration aims to alleviate. The benefits of aeration and leaf cleanup are always optimized when both services are utilized in a season.
Cleaning up garden beds and pruning shrubbery are important to the health and appearance of your plants, and mulching can help take them to the next level. Mulch minimizes the possibility of weeds in these areas and naturally creates a richer soil, which will improve the health of all your plants.
In order for newly seeded or sodded lawns to thrive and develop deep, strong root systems, the soil MUST be properly fertilized. Without fertilization and watering, even the highest quality seeds/sod will not be able to grow into the lush lawn you have always wanted.
When you sign up for full property maintenance with us, the benefits you can expect also extend personally to you! No longer will you have to pick up the phone or search for a yard care company every time you notice an issue in your yard that needs to be addressed. Full property maintenance benefits every aspect of your yard care needs, meaning many issues will be prevented just in the normal course of business. You are sure to have less stress and more free time when you put Potomac Lawn Professionals on the job!
As we all know, money is a big deciding factor when it comes to the many yard care options that are available. Signing up for full property maintenance, however, can help you save money! Yard care services are typically more expensive at a per-visit rate, and you will likely need some curative treatments throughout the year if you are not taking advantage of a full property maintenance service. Potomac Lawn Professionals will provide all the services necessary to keep both your property and your bank account in great shape!
