At Hobart Lawn Care, we believe that a great lawn mowing service is more than just cutting the grass. It's about providing a complete and professional service that makes your property look its best. Our team of lawn care pros takes pride in their work and will ensure that your lawn is mowed to the highest standards.
One key element of our lawn mowing service is creating straight edge lines. A straight edge line gives your property a neat and polished look, and it is a reflection of our attention to detail. We also ensure that all sidewalks and driveways are thoroughly blown off to remove any debris, leaving your property looking clean and cared for.
Another essential aspect of our lawn mowing service is edging the perimeter of your lawn. Edging creates a clean separation between the lawn and other landscaping elements like flower beds, walkways, or driveways. This provides a well-manicured, professional look to your property.
In addition to creating straight edge lines and edging the perimeter, we mow in different directions every week. This helps to prevent lines from forming on your lawn, giving it a more natural and professional appearance.
Northern Indiana is home to several types of grass that are commonly found in residential lawns. Some of the most prevalent types of grass include Kentucky Bluegrass, Tall Fescue, Perennial Ryegrass, and Fine Fescue. Each type of grass has its own unique characteristics, growth patterns, and maintenance requirements that must be taken into account when caring for your lawn.
Kentucky Bluegrass is a popular grass type in Northern Indiana due to its ability to thrive in cooler climates. It is a dense and fine-textured grass that is known for its deep blue-green color. Kentucky Bluegrass requires consistent moisture and regular fertilization to maintain its vibrant color and density.
Tall Fescue is another popular grass type in Northern Indiana, known for its deep roots and drought tolerance. It is a coarser textured grass that is less prone to disease and pests than other grass types. Tall Fescue requires less frequent watering but benefits from regular mowing to prevent it from growing too tall.
Perennial Ryegrass is a fast-growing grass type that is commonly used for overseeding or patching bare spots. It has a fine texture and is known for its quick germination and establishment. Perennial Ryegrass requires regular watering and fertilization to maintain its lush appearance.
Fine Fescue is a group of grasses that are known for their fine texture and shade tolerance. They are often used in Northern Indiana for their ability to grow in areas with limited sunlight. Fine Fescue requires less fertilizer and water than other grass types, making it a low-maintenance option for homeowners.
Each type of grass has its own unique needs and requirements when it comes to lawn care. By understanding the characteristics of the different types of grass in your lawn, you can ensure that your lawn care regimen is tailored to meet the specific needs of your grass type.
Mowing at the proper blade height differs for each type of grass. It's crucial to know the right height for the grass in your yard. Mowing too low can stress the grass and weaken its root system, making it more susceptible to disease, pests, and drought. On the other hand, mowing too high can create a thatch layer, which can prevent air, water, and nutrients from reaching the roots.
For example, cool-season grasses such as Kentucky bluegrass and fescue should be mowed between 2.5 and 3.5 inches tall, while warm-season grasses like Bermuda grass and Zoysia grass should be mowed between 0.5 and 2 inches tall. Mowing at the proper height can also help reduce weed growth and promote thicker, healthier grass.
Additionally, it's essential to adjust the mower blade height throughout the season. For example, in the spring when grass is growing quickly, you may need to mow more frequently and at a higher height to avoid removing too much of the grass blade at once. In the summer when the heat is high and the grass is stressed, it's best to mow at a lower height to reduce stress on the grass.
