What Is the Difference Between Lawn Care and Landscape Maintenance?

While lawn care and landscape maintenance are often used interchangeably, they mean different things. Having a clear understanding of their unique characteristics and offerings is essential in ensuring that your property receives the specific attention it needs to flourish.

Let's explore these two services and how they can benefit your property. 

Lawn care: ensuring vibrant, lush, green grass

The lawn is that area of grass that requires constant maintenance and grooming to keep it lush, green, and healthy. Maintaining a healthy lawn involves various tasks aimed at nurturing your grass to keep it looking vibrant and green. 

Here's what the lawn care professionals at Atlanta Professional Landscaping offer to ensure your lawn stays in top shape:

  • Mowing and edging

Regularly trimming your grass at the appropriate height helps it grow better and gives your lawn a tidy appearance. 

Edging defines the boundaries between your lawn and other features like walkways or flowerbeds, enhancing the overall look of your outdoor space.

  • Weed control

Unwanted weeds can compete with your grass for essential nutrients and water, leading to an unhealthy lawn. 

Professional weed control methods target these intruders, ensuring your grass receives the resources it needs to thrive.

  • Fertilization

Like any living thing, your grass requires proper nutrition to flourish. The lawn care experts at Atlanta Professional Landscaping can analyze your soil composition and recommend the appropriate fertilizers to enrich the soil and promote healthy growth.

  • Pest control

Various pests, such as grubs and beetles, can damage your lawn by feeding on the grass roots or foliage. Lawn care services employ effective pest control measures to identify and eradicate these threats, protecting your lawn's health and vitality.

Landscape maintenance: maintaining the beauty and functionality of your outdoor space 

The landscape is the larger outdoor space that includes the hardscapes, trees, shrubs, flowers, and the lawn itself. 

Landscape maintenance is about more than just mowing the lawn; it's about ensuring the overall health and style of your outdoor environment. Here's a look at some of what our landscape maintenance services at Atlanta Professional Landscaping entails:

  • Tree and shrub care

Skilled pruning and trimming promote healthy growth and enhance the visual appeal of trees and shrubs, giving your landscape a well-groomed look.

  • Mulch application

Applying mulch serves multiple purposes, including retaining moisture in the soil, suppressing weed growth, and regulating soil temperature. These benefits contribute to a flourishing landscape that's full of life.

  • Seasonal clean-up

Regular removal of leaves, twigs, and debris prevents your yard from becoming cluttered and unkempt, maintaining its neat appearance throughout the changing seasons.

  • Bed maintenance

Weed control, pruning, and refreshing flower beds and garden areas are essential tasks that ensure your landscape remains in a constant state of bloom and vibrancy, enhancing the overall beauty of your outdoor paradise.

What to know about plant health care

While lawn care and landscape maintenance focus on specific aspects of a healthy yard, plant health care takes a broader approach. It's all about preventing problems and ensuring every plant in your garden, from trees to flowers, thrives. Here's what plant health care involves:

  • Spotting and dealing with pests and diseases early to protect your plants from harm.

  • Understanding your soil helps give your plants the proper nutrients they need to grow well.

  • Giving plants essential nutrients where they need them most helps them grow strong and healthy.

  • Having a professional keep an eye on your plants can catch any problems before they get too serious.
