What is the difference between lawn care & landscaping?

As the name itself describes, lawn care is just taking care of the lawn that has been established already. It may involve mowing, edging, fertilizing, weeding, trimming of small trees and shrubs, removal of leaf and other debris from lawn, and watering grass.

 

Landscaping is the act of transforming an outdoor area either by planting and construction or by reorganizing. It involves installation as well as maintenance of gardens that generally include shrubs, trees, vines, bulbs, annuals, and perennials. It may also include stone patios, brick patios, and other structures like planters or pergolas. Additionally, landscaping may involve placement of statues, fountains, fire pits, and birdbaths.

 

In general, lawn care business is only a mow and blow operation that often gets completed in 15-20 minutes. But landscaping is a time-consuming job that requires ample knowledge and plenty of experience in the green industry.

 

Lawn Care

 

Lawn care involves everything you have to do to ensure that your lawn is beautiful, healthy and thriving. A lawn care business generally offers the following services:

 

Lawn mowing: This service includes mowing the turf areas completely, trimming, edging of hard surfaces, and clean up all necessary debris.

 

Fertilization and weed control: This is an important service because a well-balanced and effective fertilization and weed control program is the key to achieving a healthy and thriving lawn.

 

Spring and fall cleanup: This service ensures that the lawn has been prepared adequately for the changing seasons

 

Core aeration: This involves removal of small plugs or cores from the lawn for removing thatch, loosening up the soil, and allowing water and nutrients to go deeper into the soil.

 

Dethatching: This involves the removal of thatch for allowing nutrients to enter the root system once again and for preventing dangerous, disease-causing fungi to spread in the lawn.

 

Pruning: Pruning involves the removal of broken and sucker branches and dead wood in order to maintain the health and appeal of the lawn.

 

Landscaping

 

Landscaping is the act of planning, designing, and transforming land for creating an ambience. It generally involves planting and caring for various types of flowers, trees, shrubs, groundcovers, and grass, and adding decorations such as a pond, fountain etc. for beautifying the space.
