For the vast majority of homeowners, their yards are the largest part of their landscape. A healthy, verdant lawn provides a wonderful canvass and foreground for a decoration of trees, shrubs, and other ornamental plants, as well as enhances the appearance of the house. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it can have a substantial effect on property value. There are many who prefer to take care of their own lawns and landscapes. However, if you look at a property that has been maintained by the staff here at Great Lakes Landcare Inc., you will see a clear difference between an amateur and a professional. Our competitive prices make the results worth the money, and the time you will save in doing all of that yard work yourself. We have been tending the lawns of houses and companies all over the area of Flint for over a decade. With our customer base increasing every year, we can back up our claim that our work yields 100 percent satisfaction in every piece of property. We stand behind all of our lawn care work with a guarantee that if something is not done right the first time, it will be remedied quickly at our expense. Our lawn care services have been the founding of our business, and they still comprise the largest part of our overall revenue. Though we give nothing but the best in every service we provide, this is the one we have been doing the longest. Nowhere will you find a more nourishing program that is as adept at eliminating and crowding out weeds. Our regimen of lawn care is a seven step process that begins around the end of March or as late as April, depending on the weather. We use a combination of liquid and granular fertilizer and weed control products, and only those that are proven effective. The first treatment is a granular crabgrass application, so we can stop that particular early growing weed before it takes hold. The next two treatments are a combination of liquid fertilizer and herbicide applications. We manually apply these liquid chemicals, rather than adopting the riding equipment. The fourth visit is granular fertilization, and spot treatments of weeds, as most of the early growers will have already been stopped. The fifth consists of liquid fertilization, along with a new solution of herbicide to combat a different set of floral pests that usually make their presence known in the summer months. The last two are a balance between fertilizers and winterization products to make sure pests do not take root when the next year rolls around. While your lawn's health is the most essential component to having it look spectacular to the eye, it also must be maintained, as good textured hair must be neatly clipped and combed. Our staff can provide the most professional looking mowing job, complete with edging and blowing away of all of the stray clippings. We know the correct height in which to mow in order to promote optimal growth. Do you find cleaning your yard in spring and fall to be a dreadful task?
