The Benefits of Aerating Your Lawn

First of all, what's “aerating your lawn” mean? Aerating your lawn is where you puncture your lawn with holes to allow for air, water, and nutrients to reach the grassroots. This helps your lawn to grow stronger and better. The best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you information on when, how and why you should aerate your lawn. If your lawn needs some work done, call Paradise Landscaping at 573-964-6515.



When Should You Have Your Lawn Aerated?


When you should have your lawn aerated depends on what type of grass you have. If you have cool season grass, then have it aerated in the early spring or fall, if you have warm season grass then have it aerated in late spring.


How Should Your Have Your Lawn Aerated?


Aerating requires you to check the soil and make sure its moist enough. So, it's best to wait after a rainy day or to water your lawn the day before. Aerating can require a lot of work and if you don't have the time for it, our landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here for you.


"Paradise did an excellent job on my landscaping. They worked with my time frame and were incredibly helpful. I do not have a green thumb in any way and they took the time to teach me how to care for each type of plant. I thought one was dying a few days after it was planted and they came out that same morning to check on it. I had not been watering it enough so they explained what setting on the sprayer I should use and for how long. They have truly went above and beyond to "design my paradise." - Katie Royal

Why Should You Have Your Lawn Aerated?


You should have your lawn aerated for a number of reasons. If your lawn gets a lot of heavy traffic, such as:
  • Your kids play on it frequently
  • Your pets run around on it
  • You host a lot of outdoor parties
...Then you should probably get your lawn aerated. Heavy traffic contributes to soil compaction.

5 Great Addition Ideas to Your Landscape This Spring

Spring is here and what an exciting time it is for landscaping. It's the perfect time to make some beautiful additions to your home or business landscape. The best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you a few ideas for some great additions to your landscape this spring. If you need some landscaping assistance, call Paradise Landscaping at 573-964-6515 today or visit our website at www.DesignYourParadise.com.


Great Addition Ideas to Your Landscape This Spring


Addition Idea #1
A water fountain
The sound of running water on your landscape can be calming and relaxing. Water fountains are beautiful and may even increase the value or your home. You can also attract some beautiful wildlife, such as birds or deer who may drink from it.

Addition Idea #2
A retaining wall
Retaining walls can be a great addition to your landscape because they make land that can't really be used, usable. If your lawn is in a slope form and you 'd really like to have a vegetable garden, adding a retaining can help you have a level garden, which can be easier to manage.

Addition Idea #3
A flower bed
Spring is a beautiful time of year with all the flowers blooming. Bring some of that beauty to your landscape by adding a flower garden. To get into the spirit of spring, here are a few spring flowers:

  • Daffodils
  • Tulips
  • Cherry Blossoms
  • Peonies
  • Forget-me-nots
  • Primroses



Addition Idea #4
Trees
Trees provide shade and can decrease your air conditioning bill in the warmer months. By planting trees around your home, you are shading it, which can create a cooler space.

Addition Idea #5
Fresh mulch
The odds are you haven't had your mulch freshened up since last spring, so now is the time to freshen up that mulch. Old mulch can look gravel like and be displeasing to look at, so don't let your mulch be an eyesore in your backyard and call Paradise Landscaping.

Tips for Cleaning Your Lawn this Spring

Spring is practically here! Ok, it technically doesn’t start until March 20, but your landscape needs to be spring ready. Having trouble accomplishing that on your own? Call the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks at 573-964-6515. Paradise Landscaping is here to give you a few key tips to get your lawn in spring shape.


Tips for Cleaning Your Lawn This Spring


Tip #1
Remove all litter, dog droppings, and debris from your lawn.
Spring clean your lawn and give it the makeover it needs, by starting with removing this unwanted debris.


Tip #2
Rake all leaves.
If you let your leaves pile up and just sit on your lawn, you could be damaging your beautiful grass. Hire a leaf removal company at the Lake of the Ozarks as soon as possible.


Tip #3
Give your plants some love.
Start fertilizing your plants if you haven’t already, so they are good for the season.

"I glanced out the window at the signs of spring. The sky was almost blue, the trees were almost budding, the sun was almost bright." - Millard Kaufman

Tip #4
Freshen up your mulch
If your mulch hasn’t been freshened up in a while, do not just add a new layer of mulch over the old mulch. This can cause rot and just give your landscape a negative look. Have your mulch changed out and refreshed.


Tip #5
Prune old bushes.
Pruning your bushes can be dangerous if you are inexperienced and haven’t done it before, you could accidentally injure yourself, so be sure to call a professional. Your branches could have experienced some damage over the seasons, so freshen them up by pruning them.

Why Should I Hire a Landscaping Company to Take Care of the Landscape at My Business?

Your business is your legacy. You have worked hard to get it where it is today. You have put so much time and effort into it and still are doing so to this day. How will you have time to manage the landscape for your business? Here are a few reasons why you should hire the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks to manage the landscape at your business. If you are in need of landscape company that has the experience and resources to make your landscape beautiful and feel like a paradise, call Paradise Landscaping at 573-964-6515.


Why Should I Hire a Landscaping Company to Take Care of the Landscape at My Business?


Reason #1
This would be a HUGE time saver
Managing your lawn work and landscape can take hours every week that you don't have. Save yourself some time and hire a professional landscaping company.

Reason #2
To keep your landscape consistent looking
If you try to do this yourself, without the experience and expertise a professional landscape company offers, the odds are your lawn is going to look slightly different each time. This is your business, so you'll want to have a professional looking entryway and landscape, so consistency is key.

Reason #3
To save money by not having to buy professional landscape equipment
Landscaping equipment can be expensive. Save yourself thousands of dollars by not buying it and just hiring someone to manage your landscape.

Reason #4
To gain the expertise of someone who has been doing this for a long time
For example, Paradise has evolved over the past five years, working hard to assemble the best management staff to design the perfect paradise. The business specializes in everything from retaining walls, water features, trees and shrubs, sod, among other features, and oversees the design and full maintenance.

Reason #5
The designs that a landscape company can “bring to the table”
It can be very difficult to think creatively when it comes to your landscape, but if you hire someone who has years of experience creating landscape designs, then you are making things much easier on yourself. For example, Rick Harris, our designer, has 46 years of experience in the field of Horticulture, Retail Garden Center Management, and Landscape Design. That's 46 years of learning and knowing what and how large plants will become.

5 Things to Check BEFORE Opening Your Pool

The weather is getting nicer and you know what that means. Pool season is right around the corner. You can save yourself a lot of trouble by checking a few things before reopening or opening your pool this year. Our pool maintenance experts at the Lake of the Ozarks are here to give you 5 things to check BEFORE opening your pool.


5 Things to Check BEFORE Opening Your Pool


Check #1
Check the pool cover and remove any debris that may be sitting on it.
We know you may be in a rush to yank off that pool cover but take your time. Remove anything that may be sitting on top of it, such as leaves, pool toys, rocks, etc. You don't want this falling into your pool.

Check #2
Check to see what pool chemicals you have on hand.
You most likely have some pool chemicals left over from last year, so keep track of what you have and purchase the chemicals you need ahead of time.

Check #3
Check the water levels.
The goal is to keep your water levels somewhere in between one third and one half of your pool skimmer. Your pool shouldn't be empty unless you are having work done to it.

Check #4
Check your pool deck for potential safety hazards.
Clear your pool deck of anything someone may trip on. Make sure your deck paint looks fresh, no one wants to stub their toe on a paint chip.



Check #5
Check your pool pump to be sure it's working properly.
Your pump has been sitting for many months, it's a good idea to check it ahead of time to make sure it still works. If it doesn't you are giving yourself plenty of time to get it fixed.
