Four Lawn Care Tips For Petersburg Property Owners


Maintaining a healthy lawn is crucial in preventing pest infestation. It also helps keep your property in tip-top shape. It can feel overwhelming to be faced with an entire lawn to care for, but there are some things you can do.

Here are four lawn care tips for you to implement around your Petersburg home or business:

  1. Eliminate weeds and moss, because they block air and nutrients from getting to the soil.
  2. Repair bare spots around the lawn to prevent them from spreading.
  3. Aerate your lawn to make the soil permeable, allowing access to water and nutrients.
  4. Keep your lawn well mowed and watered, maintaining proper drainage throughout the property.

These tips are good to keep in mind, but the truth is, keeping your yard in good shape isn’t easy. That’s why professional lawn care services are the best way to go.

Go-Forth Home Services is experienced in providing complete lawn treatments that keep your property healthy all year long. Our lawn care services give you the continued protection you deserve. So, call us today to get started.
