How to Tell Decent Garden Maintenance Companies From an Excellent One
Gardens are living, breathing ecosystems that when left to the careless, can crumble and wilt in the blink of an eye. Garden maintenance companies may promise your garden the world, but if you do not know what to look out for, you may be handing over your treasured garden to the wrong person.
Here are some factors you can use to help tell if you’ve chosen well from the companies available to you.
Extensive Knowledge and Experience in Horticulture
Garden maintenance companies are going to compete for your business. You can tell if they will take care of your garden if they have a solid understanding of horticulture. Horticulture, actually means “the art or practice of garden cultivation and management.” An exceptional garden maintenance company will understand the creative component of gardening and ideally demonstrate a love or passion for it.
Beyond passion, your top company will know how to thoroughly care for the ecosystem of your garden. Since these lush landscapes are an intermingling of plant species, extensive knowledge means the garden maintenance company can properly ensure that your plants and trees can coexist and thrive beautifully.
Using the Right Fertilizers and Soils in Your Gardens
Cape Cod has a very particular and sometimes fickle soil composition which can make it hard for gardens to thrive. Choosing the right fertilizer and soil for your garden can vary from town to town along the Cape. You want a soil that will allow proper oxygen circulation, but it takes knowledge and experience to know which is the right one for your garden.
Mulching, fertilizing, pruning, these are techniques and strategies to help ensure garden vitality. However, the needs of your garden and its soil change season to season, as well. Top-notch garden maintenance companies know how to accommodate the changes in the seasons as well as the needs of different types of gardens.
Knowing How to do Irrigation the Right Way
Cape Cod can be as dry as it is wet, and knowing how to properly adapt to the humidity or dryness of the season is crucial. Trust-worthy garden maintenance companies are generally focused on more than just maintaining your garden. So while maintenance is different than an irrigation service, knowing that the company you’ve hired offers this service as well means you know you can trust their skill in maintaining thriving gardens.
