Why Richmond Property Owners Should Opt For Professional Lawn Maintenance

It is nice to have a lush and vibrant lawn that is the envy of all your neighbors. But it isn't easy to establish and sustain a beautiful lawn. You can't achieve it with mowing alone. You need to give your soil and turf what they need throughout the year and during every season. That is where your lawn care company can help in a big way.

Whether you are a homeowner wanting to enjoy your lawn year-round or a business owner looking to create a great first impression, it pays to get professional assistance. Let's explore a few reasons why opting for professional lawn care is a wise choice for your Richmond property.

If you already know how professional lawn care works and would like a professional to look at your property and provide guidance, connect with us.

The Importance Of Curb Appeal

Curb appeal plays an essential role in creating a positive first impression for guests or customers visiting your business. There are many reasons you might want to cultivate curb appeal. The reasons are different for home and business owners:

  • When selling a home, great lawn care pays dividends. Few things can raise the perceived value of a home, like a lush lawn. Professional lawn care mitigates potential devaluation whether you're currently selling or considering selling in the future.
  • A healthy and vibrant lawn makes a statement. If you want your neighbors to take notice of your property, a quality lawn care program is the way to do it. You'll have the greenest lawn possible no matter what the weather conditions.
  • As a business, you may not get a second chance to make a first impression. Many customers won't visit a business for the first time simply because of its appearance. Your lawn is a large part of curb appeal.

Overall, we can't tell how important curb appeal is to you. All we can say for sure is that when you get skilled and affordable lawn care from Go-Forth Home Services, you'll put on your best face, whether it's to be the envy of your neighbors or an attractive location for customers to shop.

Seasonal Lawn Care Strategies

Your lawn needs specialized care all year long to stay its healthiest. There are things you can do, such as proper mowing length, watering, and raking, but there is a bit more your lawn will need, and this is where your lawn care service provider fits in. A professional will make sure your lawn gets what it needs for healthy growth, sustained life, and pest protection. Let's break this down by season.


  • Everything comes back to life in the spring, and it is a great time to give your lawn a quality fertilizer. If you only fertilize once a year, spring is the time to do it. We provide appropriate fertilization in spring, summer, and fall.
  • Another thing that comes to life is weeds. We apply post-emergents to address weeds as necessary.
  • In spring, lawn pests come out of hiding and start to eat your grass from the bottom up and the top down. We use industry-leading solutions to get control of those pests.
  • In spring, your lawn may need aeration due to soil compaction during the winter. We have the equipment to aerate your lawn to allow the water, air, and nutrients to get to the roots of your grass.
    Spring is the time of year for overseeding. We seed your lawn and fill in patchy areas and bare spots.


  • Your lawn will need food through the hot summer months, and a slow-release fertilizer is the way to go. We select an appropriate fertilizer to get this job done right.
  • Your lawn can dry out during the summer. We use products that help guard against drought stress and make your grass strong enough to survive harsh conditions as they arise.
  • Pests can come to attack your lawn throughout the summer. We fight them off with grub and aphid control, fire ant colony elimination, and many other treatment options.
  • When unwanted crabgrass comes to take over, we fight that grass back.
  • We address plant diseases and blight that can ruin your grass.


  • We have many wet days and dry days in the fall months. We keep your lawn healthy to resist the issues that can plague it during times of stress.
  • Once again, fertilization is essential for fall lawn care. Fertilizing this time of year nourishes your lawn and greens it up in preparation for winter conditions.
  • Autumn is a great time to address weeds, not those currently in your yard but those that will emerge in the spring. We apply pre-emergent weed control to prevent weed germination.
  • Aeration in the fall is helpful to give your grass access to the water, nutrients, and air needed for healthy growth before shutting down for the winter.


After December 21st, your lawn is dormant. It will stay that way through the winter, whether the snow falls or not. Winter is a great time of year to think about lawn care because that's all you can do—think about it. There isn't much to do out there except let your fall lawn care carry you through to spring. But winter is a great time to contact your lawn care professional if you don't have a lawn care service plan yet. Spring is the most important time of year for your lawn, and we get your lawn jump-started and ready for the new year.

Time And Effort Savings For Property Owners

Life is a mix of juggling family, work, and personal commitments. Who has time for lawn maintenance? When you get home after a hard day's work, it is time to enjoy your lawn, not work on it. A lawn care plan gives your lawn what it needs without taking the last of your energy and attention.

If you own a business, your focus is on running your business. We bet you wear enough hats in a day. Your time and efforts should be doing the things you do best. Let a professional handle your lawn care needs and take that burden off your plate. Let's look at a few more things you should consider.

There is a steep learning curve to maintaining a healthy and thriving lawn. You have to learn about soil composition, weed control numbers, and other important factors. Your lawn care professional has the training needed to select appropriate products for your soil and turfgrass and apply them at required intervals throughout the year. In every season, your lawn will get what it needs.

DIY lawn care often leads to a lot of guesswork. So, not only do you have to get out there and do the hard work, you may have to do it again and again. Your lawn care professional will customize your plan to meet the specific needs of your lawn and leverage experience and training to get things done in a timely manner.

Cost-Effectiveness Of Professional Services

Far too often, we see property owners throwing away good money after bad, trying to stay ahead of the issues. Here are just a few ways your professional lawn care can save you money.

Purchasing and maintaining lawn care equipment, and paying for fertilizers and pest control materials can get costly. Your lawn service professional comes equipped with the necessary tools and supplies, eliminating the need for you to invest in equipment and supplies.

If you are a business owner, you may have to pay an employee to handle your lawn care for you. You may also take an employee off their routine job to handle lawn care duties. Doing so can lead to less-than-desirable results. Why not get the results you want and pay a professional who will do the job more effectively and efficiently?

Routine lawn care and appropriate treatments help prevent small issues from turning into costly problems, particularly for large properties. If you have a large lawn, it pays to go with professional service. Proactive pest control, disease management, and regular lawn maintenance can add up to long-term savings by avoiding extensive repair or replacements of turf.

Professional lawn maintenance services offer a bundled approach and give you the most value for your money. We only use what is needed, and we apply products that are known to work.

Contact your Go-Forth Home Services team for pest control and lawn care solutions if you're in our Richmond service area. We'll help you find the right plan to meet your needs.
