Lawn and Landscape Tips

Keep Your Property Well-Maintained

It is important to protect your landscaping investment and keep your property looking its very best. Make sure that you are doing what’s best for your property and get expert lawn and landscape tips from C & J Landscaping in the Quad Cities. Our professional landscapers provide useful advice and can help you devise a schedule for upkeep and maintenance.
 

Useful Advice for Landscape Care:

  • Apply herbicide on a sunny, warm day when rain is not forecast for at least 12 hours.
  • During periods of hot weather, water turf morning and evening, twice a week.
  • Edge the beds. Cutting fresh edges where the grass meets the mulch makes the lawn look well-kept.
  • Make sure your outdoor living space is bigger than you think it should be.
  • Studies have shown that a good landscaping design and layout can increase the value of a home by 7-14%.
  • Trim evergreens in late spring.

New Sod Care Instructions:

  • Watering of new sod will be the responsibility of the property owner.
  • Water the sod 2 times a day until soaked (approximately 1.5 hours each time) for the first 21 days.
  • Do not let the sod go dormant during the first year.

Consult Our Landscape Designers

If you do not have the time or the inclination to maintain your exterior plantings, engage the regular services of a landscaping maintenance company. Call us at (309) 781-8986 to schedule a landscape consultation. Discuss your maintenance plan with our landscape designers, who can suggest low-maintenance vegetation strategies if gardening and backyard puttering are not your specialties.
