Lawn Care Tasks must be performed with discipline and executed like clockwork:

  1. Water your lawn regularly. The water needed for your lawn will vary depending on the season and weather, but watering deeply and infrequently is a good rule of thumb. This will help encourage deep root growth, making your lawn more drought-tolerant.
  2. Mow your lawn regularly. Mowing your lawn at the correct height will help to prevent weeds from taking over and will also help to keep your lawn looking its best. A good rule of thumb is to mow your lawn when it is 2-3 inches high. See our Grass Cutting Height Chart on our Mowing webpage.
  3. Remove debris. Remove debris such as litter, leaves, twigs, and branches from your lawn regularly. This will help to prevent pests and diseases from taking hold. A clean, green lawn will always look good and maximize curb appeal.
  4. Execute a Lawn Care Plan. The Lawn Care Plan must be customized to your lawn and performed by someone knowledgeable in local horticulture and landscape products. Lawn treatments must be performed safely and effectively applied the right amount of fertilization, pest, disease, and weed control. Years of lawn care experience and know-how are essential to achieve expert results. The easy way is to hire Collins Lawn Care, an excellent choice for creating, executing, and managing a Lawn Care Plan. Collins will handle the tasks to get the lawn you want, except for tasks 1 through 3, which are the customer’s responsibility.
  5. Constantly monitor the lawn conditions. Collins will monitor your lawn during each service visit and rely on you to promptly report any health issues with your lawn to us. Collins wants to know if your grass changes in color, has any dead areas or brown spots, and any changes in appearance that indicate a health issue. Collins encourages customers to use the website’s online form Report a Landscape Problem to notify us of any lawn issues.

    Discovering these problems quickly is vital. “Nipping problems in the bud” can save you money. Problems must be analyzed to determine how to keep the grass healthy and stop the spread of an issue that can kill your whole lawn. The analysis and possible remedy take knowledge and experience, and that’s the reason why you want to hire Collins to do your Lawn Care.
  6.  React to issues or lawn problems ASAP. Once Collins analyzes the problem, we will provide a solution. Whether the problem is a broken sprinkler, chinch bugs, poor drainage, too much thatching, or something else, Collins will ensure that the customer understands the service solution and its importance. If the solution is part of Collins’ existing service, the service solution will be delivered without delay. If the service solution is a supplement service outside the regular service visits, the customer will decide to have it done.
  7. Fertilizing at the right time. Fertilizing will provide the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and green. Be sure to choose a fertilizer appropriate for your grass type and the proper amount. Applying the fertilizer at the right time in the season and according to the manufacturer’s specifications is vital to the lawn’s health and the environment.
  8. Control weeds. Weeds can quickly take over a lawn if they are not controlled. There are many ways to control weeds, including weeding by hand and using herbicides. Collins uses the most effective application methods and high-quality products appropriate for the type of weeds to be eliminated.
  9. Proactively apply pesticide and disease control. Collins reads the latest trends in the Tampa Bay area and recommendations from the University of Florida and will, in response, provide proactive treatments for insect & disease control. Also, in response to a lawn issue, Collins will also react to lawn health issues by promptly applying the proper pesticide or disease control products to solve the problem.
  10. Aerating your lawn as required. Aerating your lawn will help to improve drainage, stimulate root growth and air circulation, which will help to keep your lawn healthy. Aeration Services are usually performed once or twice a year, depending on the soil and grass. You can aerate yourself or choose the easy way and hire Collins to perform Aeration Services for you professionally.
  11. Dethatch your lawn when needed. Dethatch your lawn to remove thatch, a layer of dead grass and organic matter that can build up on the surface of your lawn. Thatch can prevent water and nutrients from reaching the roots of your grass, leading to problems such as brown patches and weeds. You can dethatch your lawn yourself or, again, choose the easy way and hire Collins Lawn Care to do it professionally.
