Avoid These 6 Landscaping Mistakes

Avoid These 6 Landscaping Mistakes

Mistakes in the landscaping business can prove to be time consuming and costly. These 6 landscaping mistakes are made more often than you would imagine. Avoid these mistakes and use our tips to avoid mulchy messes and cutting catastrophes on your next project!

Starting Without A Plan

The art form of planning and designing a landscape is unique because you not only take into account the size, colors, textures, and proportions of the project, but also it’s functionality. Failing to start your landscaping project with a plan can lead to an unattractive end result that doesn’t function properly, won’t last long enough, or even goes over budget.

Using The Wrong Tools

Using the right tools for a project can make all the difference when it comes to saving timing and keeping you and your team safe.

Match your tools to your project. The size of the job may influence the size and type of tools used, this goes for handheld tools and power equipment. Make sure to keep your tools clean and organized. For advice on tools and when to use them, speak to one of our equipment specialists.

 Cutting Grass Too Short

Grass length should change depending on the time of year. In the summer, grass requires more shade so that it doesn’t get burnt to a crisp. During these warmer months, leave the grass a little longer so that the blades can shade the soil and the water doesn’t evaporate so fast. During the colder months, grass should be cut shorter so that sunlight can reach the soil.

(Bonus tip: It’s a myth that if you cut your grass shorter, you won’t have to mow it as often).

Inappropriate Irrigation Systems

A project’s irrigation system ties back into the design of the project. Each plant requires different watering needs, so installing the appropriate irrigation system will save you a huge headache. Sprinkler set-ups and irrigation can tend to be an eye-sore if not done thoughtfully, so make sure to plan for this ahead of time when designing the landscape.

Forgetting About Wildlife

The type of plants and flowers used in your landscaping project can either attract or repel outside wildlife. When planning a project or discussing a project with your client, make sure to ask what critters they’d like to avoid. Deer can be attracted to beautiful flowers, so it couldn’t hurt to add some bitter-tasting plants to the bunch. Once they give those a try, they are sure to keep away from that yard.

Not Recycling

As most landscapers know, large projects can produce large amounts of waste. Rather than trashing branches, clippings, and other recyclable materials, try renting or investing in a quality shredder that can turn that waste into something useful. These debris can be turned into mulch, fertilizers, or compost. Plus, most compost piles can easily be hidden into a landscape.

Now that you know the most common landscaping mistakes and how to avoid them, your lawn care business can have the confidence that your next landscaping project will come out on top.

5 Safety Tips To Remember When Using A Honda Generator

5 Safety Tips to Remember When Using a Honda Generator

Don’t be left out in the dark this summer! The best time to purchase a Honda Generator is before an emergency strike. Owning a portable generator during a power outage really feels like having a best friend by your side.

At Suburban Lawn Equipment in Delaware, we don’t just sell outdoor power equipment. We also service it and pass on the necessary knowledge in order to encourage all customers to understand how to properly use the Honda Generator. Please read below for 5 safety tips to remember when using a Honda Generator.

5 Safety Tips To Remember When Using A Honda Generator

  1. Read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Before using a Honda Generator, it is important to read the manual to avoid hazardous situations and guarantee the proper use of the generator.
  2. Do NOT use a generator inside your home or business. Generators emit carbon monoxide (CO), which can be deadly if used in your home, business, or small areas (basements, garages). It would be ideal to install a battery-operated CO alarm inside your home or business as an extra precaution from toxins.
  3. Utilize a heavy-duty extension cord. Make sure to never use an extension cord with visible wires. Heavy-duty extension cords that are specifically used for the outdoors are recommended.
  4. Avoid using Honda Generator in the rain. When used in the rain, there is a risk of shock or electrocution. We recommend waiting for the rain to pass before using your Honda Generator. If you cannot wait, it is crucial that you shield the Honda Generator from moisture.
  5. Turn off Honda Generator before refueling. It’s important to let your portable generator cool down before refueling. If gasoline or any other flammable liquid is spilled onto a hot surface, this could cause a fire.
