Two Tips to Follow When Using a Landscaper's Maintenance Services

Here are a couple of tips to follow if you're going to start using a landscaper's maintenance services.

1. Let the landscaper use their own lawnmower instead of yours

If you have a functioning lawnmower that you feel cuts your grass quite effectively, then you may be thinking about having the landscaper use this mower instead of their own one when they cut your grass. However, it might be best to get them to mow your lawn with their own equipment instead.

Even if you own a high-quality lawnmower, it's unlikely to be equal to the landscaper's commercial lawnmower, in terms of its speed, motor power and precision. You'll probably be more pleased with the landscaper's mowing work if you allow them to do it with their own mower.

Secondly, even if the landscaper will be visiting your property regularly, you will still probably need to use your own lawnmower occasionally. For example, if you want to have a garden party during the summer and your landscaper is unavailable to trim the lawn just before this event, you might need to mow it yourself, to ensure it looks tidy for the party.

If you let the landscaper use their equipment for the routine lawn-mowing sessions, your own mower will be subjected to far less wear and tear and will, therefore, perform better on these types of occasions and will also require fewer repairs over the coming years. Learn more by contacting lawnmower services. 

2. Notify the landscaper if you make significant changes to your garden in between any maintenance appointments

It's sensible to give your landscaper a heads up if you make any significant changes to your garden in between the sessions of maintenance work they do for you. For example, if you decide to create a very large flowerbed in the middle of your lawn, and this results in the sections of grass around the flowerbed being quite narrow, then you should tell the landscaper about this change, as they might need to use one of their smaller lawnmowers, rather than the ride-on one that they normally do so that the equipment will fit through these narrow sections of the lawn.

Doing this will ensure that they can complete their usual maintenance routine, instead of having to return a second time to carry out whichever tasks they could not do during their previous session as a result of not having the right equipment with them.
