Yard Maintenance Made Simple With Help

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 16 March , 2022

Yard maintenance doesn’t have to be a chore when you have the right help.  Juniper Landscape Company works with home and business owners to ensure that landscape maintenance and repair never becomes too much because we always want your yard to look its best and be its healthiest!

The Four Elements of Good Yard Maintenance

A simple way to think about yard maintenance is to think in terms of four basic elements.  When these elements are taken care of, yard maintenance becomes relatively simple to understand.

  • Soil maintenance.  Maintaining the soil is the foundational step in good yard maintenance.  It really doesn’t matter how expensive your plants are or how much time and effort you put into maintaining them; if your soil is not healthy, your plants will never thrive.  Some home or business owners spend thousands of dollars on fertilizers and additives only to learn that their soil is the cause of their problems.  Testing and amending your soil can save you time and money and may offer a quick and easy solution to your yard and garden woes.
  • Once you know your soil is healthy, it is time to consider your irrigation.  Do you water too much, or not enough?  Have you chosen plants that are drought-tolerant so that your watering needs are less?  Do you have the right irrigation system for your landscape?  The answers to all of these questions can help you understand what you need to do to ensure that your plants receive the right amount of water at the right times.
  • Hardscape maintenance. While “yard maintenance” usually refers to the organic elements of your outdoor space, you must consider your hardscape as well.  Are your walkways, patios, and walls well-built with sturdy foundations?  Do they need a refresh or even a rebuild?  Your hardscape often provides the places you go to spend time in your yard, so be sure that they are well-built and well-maintained in order to maximize your outdoor enjoyment.
  • Plant maintenance. Of course, all the other aspects of yard maintenance really come down to supporting healthy plants.  You want your grass, beds, and plants to all be at the peak of health and beauty at all times, and proper maintenance helps you achieve this goal.  Choosing the right plants and maintaining them with the right irrigation, fertilizers, mulch, and pesticide methods means that you will be able to enjoy the outdoor beauty of your home or office for years to come.

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
