Chicago lawn care tips

When it comes to Chicago lawn care, there are a wide variety of concerns that can arise. While some homeowners believe that their lawns require only watering and mowing, many aspects of lawn care can be more complicated. Improper cutting can damage a lawn, and other problems such as weeds, insect damage, lack of nutrients, poor soil drainage, and disease can cause significant issues. Each of these problems can cause patches of lawns to die off and should be tended to prevent their spread.

While regular mowing of a lawn may seem to be a pretty basic homeowner task for lawn care in Chicago, using proper lawn mowing techniques is essential. Cutting a lawn too low to the ground can cause the grass to burn and permanently damage large areas of a yard. This often happens when a homeowner is trying to reduce the frequency of mowing their lawn.

If the damaged area dies off from cutting the grass too low, these areas may require new seeding to create a healthy lawn. The damaged area should be analyzed by a turf professional to understand the extent of the die-off before reseeding is done. To ensure the seeding is done correctly, the use of a professional Chicago lawn service is recommended.

Certain weeds can wreak havoc on lawns and make lawn care in Chicago challenging to keep up with. While some weeds can cause spotty problems, others can take over wide swaths of a yard and destroy the grass's ability to thrive. This can be the case with crabgrass and, to some extent, dandelions. However, other weeds can permeate large areas of lawns as well. The best way to eradicate this potential problem is through a professional Chicago lawn service that specializes in weed control.

Like all other types of plants, grass needs certain soil composites to thrive. When the soil lacks certain nutrients or has an imbalance in the Ph, this can have a significant negative impact on the health of the grass. The good news is there are ways to help infuse the soil with proper nutrients to encourage healthy grass growth and deter disease. The best way homeowners can accomplish this is through lawn fertilization by a professional Chicago lawn care service.

Both insect infestation and poor drainage can cause significant damage to a lawn. Certain insect species can sap the soil of much-needed nutrients and wreak havoc to the soil composite, which grass needs to thrive.

When it comes to poor soil conditions from water drainage problems, this should be fixed through aeration. Water build-up, pooling, and slow drainage can cause the grass to die. Without proper water drainage, the soil gets saturated, and nutrients cannot get to the roots of the grass. This will cause the drowning of the grass plants and the eventual die-off of the affected areas.

To remedy this problem, lawn aeration is recommended. This procedure involves puncturing the soil throughout the lawn, which will allow for better drainage. This can be done in specific sections of a yard or throughout an entire lawn area. Aeration can also provide a good deterrence against insects because once the soil is disturbed, they will not have significant access to a stable soil base to thrive. Because the spikes on aerating machines that penetrate into the soil usually run several inches deep, insects that like to harbor just under the grass will often relocate.

Another essential aspect in the creation of a healthy and beautiful lawn comes from ensuring that all garden areas around the lawn are adequately maintained. Gardens are harbingers of insects as well as weeds. If a garden is not well cared for, these problems will spill over into a lawn making proper care difficult.

Chicago gardening

With the help of professional Chicago gardening services, homeowners can create beautiful floral and greenery accents to their yard. This will also protect from garden weed and growth imbalances.

Professional Chicago gardening services can help homeowners create beautiful garden areas that consist of flower and greenery planting. They can also help with edging, weeding, and hedge and shrub trimming.

Seasons in Chicago

When it comes to the non-growth seasons, there are a few significant concerns for lawn care as well. An indirect area that can be cause for concerns is gutter cleaning. When gutters clog, they can cause water to pool from overflow. This happens because the gutters are jammed up with debris and cannot work correctly. Through the use of professional Chicago gutter cleaning services, homeowners can protect their home and yard from potential home and yard flooding concerns.

Since fall is the prime season for leaves to build up, using professional Chicago gutter cleaning services in the late fall can prove to be a critical maintenance investment that will help protect lawns and gardens from water pooling damage. This also becomes a vital service to protect the home from flooding in basement areas during the winter and spring.

In the winter months, it can be vital to get quality professional Chicago snow removal assistance. Because the region is well known to have significant snowfall, snow can pile up. When snow build-up is not managed correctly, it can damage lawns and garden areas. Snow can be heavy, and seasonal melt off can cause significant flooding to lawn and garden areas leading to die-off.

Homeowners that wait until the winter weather sets in before creating a plan may find their snow removal company has built piles of snow in areas that can prove to be problematic later. By planning early with a professional Chicago snow removal service, homeowners can be assured they are creating the best snow removal plan that will ensure their lawn and gardens are not damaged. This should be done in the late fall before winter weather hits.

Commonly asked questions

Are there any watering restrictions for Chicago?

Sprinkling is permitted from 5 am until 8 am, and 7 pm until 10 pm, Mondays through Fridays.

There are no restrictions on weekends and holidays, however water should always be used sensibly to avoid waste. Watering in the early morning or evening benefits your lawn most because less water is lost to evaporation at these times. Taller grass withstands heat better and requires less watering.

Where can I dispose of yard debris?

The City of Chicago coordinates dedicated bagged leaf and other yard waste collection trucks to assist residents in clearing their yards, parkways and storm drains of leaf debris. Residents can call 311 to request separate yard waste collection. Yard waste should be left in the alley or at the curb for collection, and bagged separately from garbage in the black cart and separately from recycling in the blue. The Department will collect the bags based on 311 requests and take it to be composted. Yard waste consists of leaves, grass clippings, branches, brush, clippings from shrubbery, and garden waste. Yard waste does not include dirt, rocks, or gravel.

What types of trees are acceptable in Chicago?

High quality, nursery-grown trees must be planted because of potential damage by

pollutants (e.g., salts and carbon monoxide common to city streets). To prevent the

planting of trees that become hazards or serious maintenance problems, consult the

recommended species list on page 41 of the Ordinance.
