It would seem that, of all things, taking care of your residential landscaping in Sacramento is the last thing you need to worry about. With hand sanitizer supplies to secure, toilet paper to stock up on, kids to homeschool and trying to figure out how to work at home amidst this pandemic, landscaping is probably the furthest thing from your mind. It shouldn’t be, though, and we’re here today to talk about why it’s important to keep up on your landscaping during a pandemic.
- Security. If your hedges are starting to look haggard and your residential landscape design is getting shaggy, you definitely need to call your local landscaping company. Why? Because bushy hedges, overgrown shrubs and sky-high grasses are all great places for someone looking to steal your stash of Charmin to hide. Aside from giving great curb appeal, looking polished and attractive, and putting forth an inviting appearance to visitors, maintaining your residential landscaping will also ensure that there are no places around your home where someone could easily lurk about.
- Safety. A well-maintained landscape design ensures that there are fewer places that would be slippery or rough to easily cause a fall or damage someone’s clothing or skin. When landscape maintenance falls by the wayside, there can be an uptick in injuries because when things grow wild, they don’t do what is best for the human beings who own them. You can’t blame them — plants are plants. But you can keep them in check by enlisting help from your local residential landscape design company.
- Privacy. When bushes and hedges are well-trimmed and maintained they stand tall and act as natural barriers to protect your privacy. When they are not maintained, they tend to slouch over and bow under the weight of their own branches. This creates exposure in areas where you’re used to having none.
- An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This old saying is especially true in landscaping. If you don’t maintain your landscaping, the problem gets exponentially worse as time goes on. Instead of having to pay by the pound, just take care of the ounce upfront and you’ll be much more satisfied with the results.
