El Monte lawn care services
Lawns differ in their needs from place to place. Lawn maintenance strategies that work in New York will not work in El Monte! The name El Monte is of Spanish origin and can be translated both as "The Mountain" and as "The Wood." Since the San Gabriel Valley isn't surrounded by a lot of highlands, the latter translation is preferred and is a reference to the abundance of wild flora in this area.
The dense vegetation is attributed to the San Gabriel and Rio Hondo Rivers flowing along its opposite sides. Furthermore, with the temperature usually varying between 85.9°F and 46.8°F, El Monte has a warm Mediterranean climate. Even though the annual rainfall is less than the U.S average, the water from the rivers is more than enough to irrigate most of the local agricultural and horticultural zones.
Although these geographical features make it easier for plants to grow, they also increase the rate of weed spread, pests, and fungi and also cause numerous other issues. Whatever the problem, the pros will try their best to solve it. So, if you hire one of them, you can rest easy because your lawn will be in good hands.
Common lawn problems in El Monte
If you live in El Monte or any other place in Los Angeles County, you will likely encounter certain lawn-related issues at some point in time. Some problems are region-specific, i.e., they will occur in El Monte lawns more frequently than others. Others are general problems that most homeowners will face no matter where they live. We have mentioned some of these problems below.
1. Non-uniform coverage
The most frustrating thing for a person hoping to get a lush lawn is the lawn turning into a patchy mess. Some parts are very green, others have slightly thinning coverage, while the rest are completely bald. This can be due to a variety of reasons. Many kinds of grass don't grow well in shady places. If you have a lot of trees on your lawn, shade-tolerant grass varieties like ryegrass and fescues are your best bet. Slopes are also a bad place to grow most plants; however, certain tough types of grass can grow densely even on inclined land.
2. Damage caused by weeds and moss
The biggest threat to grass, not only in El Monte but also in all warm regions, is competition with other plants. Such plants can render the soil nutrient-deficient by rapidly absorbing large quantities of minerals and water from it, thus depriving your grass of substances crucial to its survival. These undesirable plants are called weeds. Mosses that grow to form a velvety layer also cause similar problems. Physically rooting them out and using environmentally friendly herbicides are the best ways to get rid of them.
3. Fungal invasions
The soil in most places in El Monte is rich in organic matter that consists of metabolic wastes, dead and decaying organisms, and domestic organic waste. Although this organic matter, when processed by bacteria, can act as a natural fertilizer, it can also help absorptive heterotrophs, such as mushrooms and molds, to grow and reproduce rapidly. They not only make your lawn look untidy, but some rust and smut species are also notorious pathogens of plants.
4. Scalped areas
Scalping refers to mowing your grass so short that the soil is exposed. Close mowing and uneven terrain can increase the chances of this happening.
5. Faults in irrigation systems
Obstructed sprinklers and blocked pipes can lead to a buildup of hydrostatic pressure in your irrigation system. This pressure ultimately leads to leakages that cause excess water to accumulate in one place. Puddling water can make it difficult for the submerged grass to "breathe".
