Prepping & Caring for Your Landscape This Spring & Summer

Spring has already sprung but there is still time to whip your landscape into shape! There are many ways you can clean, maintain and enhance your landscaping to make it look its best all season. After all, the outside of your property can be a reflection of the inside, so it is important to make sure your building’s grass and landscaping are cared for.landscape management circle pines

Here at Classic Lawnscape, we understand that landscaping can be time consuming; that’s why we offer the landscape management services we do! We are ready to break out the mowers, rakes and other lawn care equipment to get your lawn and landscaping looking and functioning at its best! Our landscape management experts for Circle Pines and surrounding areas have a few suggestions on what we can do to prepare your lawn for the upcoming growing season.

  • First of all, we rake and remove old, dead material and debris. Raking encourages your grass to grow. We can clear debris, leaves and other items off of your lawn. This also helps when it’s time to start mowing your lawn. Raking loosens the soil’s surface, encouraging healthy and needed air flow.
  • It’s also time to start watering your lawn on your regular basis. If you don’t have an irrigation or sprinkler system for your landscaping, the rule of thumb is to water sparingly but deep. This will help your grass ‘learn’ to dig deeper into the soil to get the water. And that means your grass will grow healthy and strong. The landscape management team at Classic Lawnscape can design, install and maintain an irrigation system for you. That way, you won’t have to lift a finger when it comes to watering your landscape.
  • We can even do the planning and planting for you; including annual flower bed installation and maintenance, edging of bed lines and tree rings.
  • Don’t forget the mulch! Mulch can help to nurture the health of your lawn. Our landscape management team can lay down mulch around your trees and flower beds. This will help keep the plants warm in unexpected cool weather and also help plants retain much-needed moisture.
  • In addition to fertilizing, it’s also important for pre-emergent herbicide to be applied periodically throughout the season. We can also perform bi-weekly weeding of your landscape beds and surfaces to keep your landscape free of weeds. And, as the growing season really takes off, we can shape shrubs as needed.
  • Got pests? Our landscape management team also knows the best strategies for integrated pest management as well as insect and disease pests.
  • And, these are just some of the ways our landscape management team can help your landscape looks its best all growing season!

Spring to It! It’s Time for Spring Startup & Lawn Sprinkler System Maintenance

Spring is just around the corner so now is a great time to begin scheduling your spring startup as well as schedule routine lawn sprinkler system maintenance. The snow has finally halted and your lawn will soon begin showing signs of life again. Your grass will be growing in no time. And, how you care for it now will make a huge difference in its growth and appearance all season. For homeowners in the Lino Lakes area, a lawn sprinkler system is an essential part of a thorough lawn care regimen. Here are a few things to consider this spring:

Spring Startup

Already have a lawn sprinkler system? Hopefully you had it winterized and any remaining water blown out in the fall and its been resting all winter. If not, the winter was cold enough to freeze underground irrigation systems if they were still full of water and not blown out. In this case, your lawn sprinkler system will likely require some repairs to get it running smoothly and efficiently again.

Now is the time to get it kicked back into full gear again! After a long winter, your lawn sprinkler system can be broken just by turning it on. A spring startup from the experts at Classic Lawnscape will properly turn your system back on and running. We can assess your lawn sprinkler system to avoid any problems. We will turn on the main water source and get it charged with water and at the same time perform any adjustments to the system’s head heights or spray patterns to allow for optimal plant growth throughout the season.

We can perform a variety of services as part of our spring startup including:

  • Water pressure testing
  • Check each sprinkler hear for proper operation and coverage
  • Adjust and clean sprinkler heads
  • Install batteries
  • Adjust and set controller
  • Charge system with water
  • And more

Scheduled Maintenance & Inspection

Weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly system inspection can help keep your lawn sprinkler system running all season.

Weekly irrigation management and lawn sprinkler system inspections consist of a visual inspection of turf and landscape by a technician for plant stress due to lack of irrigation or over watering. The technician will then make any necessary repairs to the system or programming changes to controller as needed.

Monthly irrigation management inspections consist of a physical system inspection zone by zone. The technician will make any necessary repairs to the lawn sprinkler system and/or programming changes to controller as needed.

How to Know When it’s Time to Call the Professionals for Proper Snow & Ice Removal

Sometimes a little snow can quickly turn into a lot of snow. So, how do you know when it’s time to call in the professionals for proper snow removal? Here in Minnesota, snow happens. So, no matter what kind of business you own or manage or how harsh of a winter we get, you’re going to need a snow removal plan in place. Here at Classic Lawnscape we offer snow removal for Andover and the surrounding areas and are here to offer up a few tips to help you along this winter.

snow and ice management

The first question you should be asking yourself is “Do I have the proper tools needed for ice and snow removal?” A few things you should always keep on hand are a shovel, de-icer, an ice chipper and sand. Make sure you plan ahead before the first major snowfall hits and have them all so they are easily accessible. And, if you don’t have the time to stock up on these types of supplies, you should definitely have a professional snow removal company in your arsenal. At Classic Lawnscape we have the proper tools, de-icers and other items to tackle the snow and get your parking lots and walkways cleared and de-iced.

Hiring a professional snow management team can actually save you some of your hard earned money in the long term. You won’t have to worry about buying new snow removal equipment or stock-up on de-icer before every storm.

Another important consideration: are you physically able to shovel snow and remove ice? Classic Lawnscape can take care of all of the hard labor while you focus on more important things. If you are not physically able to shovel snow for an extended period of time, then you should ask someone else to take care of it for you. Do not put yourself at risk of having a health problem as a result of the physical requirements of snow removal.

And after a big snow, if you do not have professional snow and ice management lined up, your business may not be able to open. This can mean lost revenue, wasted hours and money that could have been earned if your business had been accessible. So don’t hesitate; contact the professionals at Classic Lawnscape and get your snow removal plan underway!
