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.

Your Guide to Honda Generators

Have you ever experienced a power outage during business hours or at home when you needed electricity? Chances are you have been caught off guard more than once simply because you didn’t have one thing nearby… Honda Generators!

At Suburban Lawn Equipment in Delaware, we encourage our customers to purchase Honda Generators to keep your business going and protect your family during power shortages. If you’re a business or homeowner who thinks of purchasing one, here’s everything you need to know about Honda Generators.

What You Need to Know about Honda Generators

  1. Consult your local outdoor power equipment provider. Generator experts will not only advise you which model will suit your needs best, but they will also provide you with essential tools to get your equipment up and running in no time.
  2. Use generators outdoors only and away from any windows.  To keep the toxins out of your home, install a battery operated CO alarm as an extra safety net.
  3. Check the noise levels before your purchase. Many areas have noise ordinances that may impact generator usage, particularly at night.
  4. Use a heavy-duty extension cord for outdoors. Avoid extension cords with visible wires.
  5. Do not use Honda Generator in the rain. If that’s not possible, do your best to shield it from moisture to avoid electrocution.
  6. Never refuel a generator when it’s on. Always cool your equipment down first. It’s easy to cause a fire when gasoline or other flammable liquid spills onto a hot surface.
  7. Don’t feel intimidated. There’s no special training required in order to operate your new power generator. In addition, most standard generator models are equipped with wheels and a handle, making it completely mobile and ready to transport from one place to another.

Here’s more reasons why your business needs a Honda Generator.

 

Should you have more questions or any concerns regarding how to use any Honda outdoor power equipment, contact us today.
