A healthy lawn, is a happy lawn

Prepare your lawn for the winter
Oxygen and water are crucial components for a dense, green lawn. The team at Landscape Complete knows that the best time to aerate your lawn is in the fall. Properly aerating your lawn will ensure your grass comes up thick and healthy in the spring. Prepping your lawn for winter means less work when it comes to getting your spring flowers to flourish. To guarantee a beautiful garden, Landscape Complete has all the proper aeration equipment to loosen soil compaction and enhance water intake.
Almost every homeowner cares about the appearance of their lawn, but attending to its needs can be challenging. Sometimes, watering and regular mowing are not enough to keep your property looking its best. To increase curb appeal, you’ll need specialized lawn care equipment and the knowledge of how to properly use it. If lawn care isn’t your thing, or if you simply don’t have time, we are here to lend a helping hand. At Lawn & Snow Landscape Complete, we are fully equipped with everything we need to make your yard look great, including a core aerator.
Why does a lawn need aeration?
When a property needs aerating, it is because water is having trouble getting through the soil surface. An aerator can assist getting water to the root by loosening soil compaction and perforating the soil with small holes. Depending on your property, we recommend aerating your lawn on an annual basis.
How do you know when your lawn needs to be aerated?
Puddles and pools of water on your property may mean that the soil is compacted and that it is time to perform aeration. Another way to determine if your soil is compacted is by driving a pencil or screwdriver into your soil. If you have trouble doing so, then your lawn could benefit from professional aeration. If you want a more detailed way of assessing if your lawn needs to be aerated, then the answer lies in the thatch. When you dig up the grass and soil, look for thatch and grass roots. If you are unsure where to find thatch then look for the earthy-like material located between the blades of grass and the soil. If this layer of thatch is more than one-half inch thick, then you definitely need to aerate. Similarly, assessing the blades of grass can determine if your lawn needs to be aerated. If the blades are in excess of four inches, then they are in peak condition and should be left alone. If, however, they are less than two inches in length, then this a clear sign that your lawns need to be aerated straight away.
If you are looking for a quick and easy way to get a beautiful lawn, then sod is the way to go. Sod is essentially grass replacement which can easily be rolled out to create an appealing, lush property in very little time. At Lawn & Snow Landscape Complete, we offer sodding installation for Minneapolis and the surrounding areas. As with anything in life, it’s the little details that make all the difference, and the same goes for sod. When you partner with us you can rest assured knowing that sodding will be installed with absolute precision.
Your front yard is the first thing people see when they pull up to your property. While it may be true that guests may not notice a perfectly green, healthy lawn, bare patches and discoloration is sure to get attention in all the wrong ways. To make a great first impression, your lawn may need a little help. The most effective way to give your lawn a boost is with fertilizer. Fertilization is something every lawn owner thinks about from time to time but rarely actually goes out and does themselves. And in Minneapolis there’s no reason to since you have access to quality lawn care services like Lawn & Snow Landscape Complete. With one phone call you can ensure the ideal fertilization techniques at the ideal times of year that will leave you with a lush green lawn!
Why does my lawn need fertilizer?

Adding fertilizer that contains these elements can give your grass the extra boost it needs to flourish. At Lawn & Snow Landscape Complete, we use high quality fertilizer to maintain and stimulate growth. Get in touch with us today to schedule an on-site evaluation and we can determine which application is best suited for your lawn.

While it is true that you can mow your own lawns, the reality of the situation is that many homeowners in Minneapolis are too busy with work and taking care of kids to complete this most important of garden tasks to a proficient level. Similarly, many other residents simply do not enjoy the process, especially for the elderly for owners of a large or challenging property. If this sounds like you, then don’t worry, help is at hand. Landscape Complete offers an unrivalled approach to lawn mowing and our results speak for themselves.
Lawn Irrigation Systems
What’s the best way to keep your lawn looking its best all year around, with the least amount of effort on your part? Installing an irrigation system! There are a variety of options available to you and when you work with Lawn & Snow Landscape Complete you’ll be assured your pick of the bunch.
As part of your regular lawn maintenance there are a lot of benefits to installing an irrigation system, the most popular of which is time and water conservation. Do you enjoy going out every day and spraying that hose over your lawn and garden? We didn’t think so. So, why not let your irrigation system do it for you? Irrigation systems work by directing water exactly where it needs to go, and this will help with weed control and prevent the spread of disease and fungus to other plants in your garden. Best of all, irrigation works to preserve the nutrients in your soil by never overwatering and drowning it out. To find out about the irrigation methods available to you, read on!
Drip or micro irrigation systems are installed strategically throughout your yard to ensure the best water distribution. From a main tap, these flexible pipes extend out and drip water at appropriate intervals directly into the root system of your lawn. Drip irrigation works constantly but minimally, slowly outputting a fixed amount per hour to keep your lawn fresh and healthy. For high traffic areas, this irrigation method may not be ideal. For example, if you have children running through your yard throughout the day they could stomp on the tubes causing an interruption in or damage to the system.
Sprinklers are a great irrigation method and if you have kids, they’re going to love them as much as your lawn! When you employ our lawn maintenance services to install sprinkler irrigation we’ll thoroughly inspect your lawn and find the best points at which to place the sprinkler heads and then install them securely in the ground. Sprinklers can be set on a timer ensuring that they only have water running through them exactly when you want them to. Uniformity is easy to achieve when you install sprinkler systems though weed control is not as ideal as with drip irrigation.
Three Points to Consider When it Comes to Lawn Care
At Lawn & Snow Landscape Complete LLC, we are big believers in being as honest as possible with all our residential clients. Our superior lawn care service will take the stress out of tending to your lawn or yard. However, if you are hiring a professional lawn care team like ours for the first time then you probably have a number of questions that you are curious about. If you are like most of our first-time clients, then you may have a number of questions like this:
1. How do I select a team to do the work on my property?
2. What questions should I ask?
3. Is there any important information that I need to know about your business?
4. What are reasonable and unreasonable expectations from your lawn care company?
There is no doubt that questions like this are important. However, they are not the only points you need to keep in mind. Instead, there are a range of other points that need to be taken into close consideration. With that in mind, here are five points that you need to consider closely when it comes to superior lawn care for your Minneapolis home:
1. What Do You Want? While it is true that this may seem like a pretty straightforward question, the fact of the matter is that without knowing what you want in terms of lawn care, we won’t be fully able to help you realize your lawn care dreams. Do you want to create a lawn where you have very few tasks to complete, or would you rather a situation where you will receive minimal help from us but still be in charge of mowing, edging and fertilizing your lawn? As you think about these options, you need to keep in mind the time, resources and energy that go into fulfilling these tasks to the highest possible standard.
2. What Equipment Do You Have Access To? If you only want minimal assistance from us, then you need to make sure that you have all the necessary equipment and materials to tend to your lawn when we depart. Is this the case or are you fooling yourself? If the latter answer is the case, then you need to strongly consider investing in a more in-depth lawn care treatment service. This is especially true if you don’t want to have to fork out hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on new equipment.
3. Talent Level: One of the most difficult questions that a Minneapolis resident can ask themselves when it comes time to tend to their lawn care needs is whether or not they have the skill and talent required to complete the task to an appropriate level. If you feel that your yard is too large to tend to properly, or you don’t feel comfortable taking care of all lawn care chores, then you need to get in touch with us today and enlist the services of a lawn care team that you can trust!
When it comes to ensuring that your garden and lawn receives the optimal level of care, you really can’t take any shortcuts. As anyone in Minneapolis who has tried to maintain their own lawn. An arrest, proper lawn care often turns out to be much more difficult than it looks. Unfortunately, there are many inferior lawn care companies in Minneapolis that seek to exploit your DIY mishaps with sub-standard lawn services. The fact of the matter is that most of these companies are just trying to make a quick buck and do not have your lawn’s best interests at heart. So, if you received a quote that seemed too good to be true, then it probably is. What might seem like a great savings in the short-term could end up costing you in the long-run. Don’t take chances with sub-par lawn care companies, instead call Landscape Complete today. As the premier lawn care providers in Minneapolis, we promise that you will not be disappointed.
