Landscaping construction projects offer home and business owners an exciting chance to enhance their outdoor space. However, lawn care is often forgotten during this process. While it may not seem it, lawn care planning, preparation, and execution in conjunction with a landscaping construction project is the best way to ensure long-lasting, beautiful results. Let us share with you how to do it. 

The Benefits of Early Lawn Care Consideration

Before tearing into your existing landscaping for your construction project, it is beneficial to consider future lawn care in the planning process. This foresight will allow to craft the best circumstances to maintain a beautiful space at a foundational level, including soil health, irrigation, and grass type. 

#1: Soil Health

Tearing up the soil for a construction project disrupts the space’s natural rhythm. If you want your lawn and surrounding landscaping to come back lush and thick, you must plan ahead. We suggest planning to aerate soil compaction, replenish nutrients, and devise drainage paths. 

#2: Irrigation Planning

Watering one’s property daily is a time-consuming and annoying task many property owners simply don’t have time for. That’s where comprehensive irrigation can make a world of difference. Incorporating an irrigation system into your landscaping construction design ensures that your landscaping will have the necessary irrigation, water conservation, and drainage in place. 

#3: Selecting Grass Types

Did you know that different species of grass have different health requirements? By considering lawn care during the construction phase, you can select grass varieties that thrive in your region’s conditions. Overall, this will lead to a greener, more resilient lawn.

While it may seem simple, these early lawn care considerations help minimize post-construction problems. If you already have a detailed plan at the onset of your project, it will help create a more sustainable outdoor environment that comes into play quickly after construction completion. 

Practical Tips for Homeowners Post-Construction

After completing your landscaping construction project, maintaining a lush lawn requires some essential care practices. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1. Fertilization: Apply a balanced fertilizer after your lawn has begun to grow and establish, typically a few weeks post-construction, to support healthy development.
  2. Watering: Ensure deep, infrequent watering to encourage strong root growth.
  3. Mowing: Wait until your lawn is fully established before mowing, and always cut only the top third of the grass blades.

While you can certainly take over maintaining your landscaping after a construction project, we highly recommend taking advantage of professional services to get the most out of your project. 

Protecting Your Property with Professional Services

Do you love having a vibrant green space for your home or business but don’t have the desire, time, or skills to manage and maintain it yourself? Lawn work is a time-intensive task that requires a wealth of knowledge, experience, and dedication. If you want to keep your property looking amazing, professional services are the way to go. Here are three benefits of professional services:

  1. Expertise & Experience: When hiring local professionals, they have a deep understanding of local ecosystems, soil types, and climate conditions. This allows them to provide the best care for your property without trial and error. 
  2. Comprehensive Services: Lawn care specialists design professional teams who can handle all aspects of your property care. From seeding to irrigation, they will take care of everything. 
  3. Custom Solutions: Every property is unique, which is why professional services tailor their approach to meet your specific needs throughout every phase of your lawn care plan. 

Of course, not every professional landscaping company is equal. By choosing a reputable company like Musser Landscaping, you’re not just maintaining your property but ensuring your outdoor space remains vibrant for years to come.

What to Do After Landscaping Construction

At Musser Landscaping, our clients love our all-inclusive methodology. We believe in setting the stage for lawn care at the onset of any landscaping construction process. Here is how we do it:

Step 1: Designing an All-Encompassing Plan

Crafting your landscaping construction project is more than just digging and building. After your in-depth consultation, we head into the design phase, looking at your property as a whole and how your construction project will affect your outdoor space. We take this information and formulate an integrated plan that combines landscaping construction and future lawn care to ensure your vision will result in a beautiful result. 

Step 2: Implementing Foundational Lawn Care

Your property is at its most vulnerable during and after construction. As we mentioned above, this is the best time to implement soil health, irrigation planning, and grass type selection to set the stage for foundational lawn care. 

Step 3: Initiating Lawn Care Procedures

Adding our full-service maintenance plan to your project ensures a seamless transition from construction to maintenance. The same team who diligently completed your project will now become your maintenance team, as they deeply understand your property’s unique structure and needs.
