Lawncare Inc we pride ourselves on providing our customers with impeccable service including design advice and maintenance. When you take caution to avoid common errors along the way, your yard can remain beautiful and timeless.

Creating an Oasis: Three Errors to Avoid

1. Doing Everything Yourself

Landscaping isn’t for the faint of heart and it certainly isn’t a one-time task. Many homeowners assume they can plant a few flowers and lay a bit of sod and have themselves a pretty yard. However, this seemingly simply task involves soil testing to find the plants that will grow the most successfully in your local environmental conditions. It also involves regular maintenance such as watering, pruning, weeding, and mowing among other tasks. Trying to undertake the design and care of your yard all by yourself can be overwhelming. Additionally, without the proper tools and experience, tasks such as installing sprinklers and watering systems can be difficult and unsuccessful. At J.W. Lawncare Inc we take over all of this work and are a trusted landscaper.

2. Thinking Short-Term

Rushing to judgment on the plants you choose to use in your yard’s design can be a big mistake. While certain types of trees, flowers, and shrubs may thrive temporarily, they may begin to whither or overpopulate when weather conditions change. If you choose to plant vines or shrubs, keep in mind that without proper maintenance they could quickly become an eyesore or choke out other plants in your yard. When selecting flowers and such, consider how they will appear months from now. We can help you test your soil and select an array of foliage that will remain appealing and beautiful throughout the entire season.

3. Favoring the Front

Some homeowners are so preoccupied with creating a beautiful and well-manicured front yard that they fail to spend any time in the backyard. Putting sufficient time and effort into both areas can ensure you are satisfied with the curb appeal of your home, but that you also have a private area where you can entertain guests, spend time with your family, and make memories with friends. As a superior landscaper, we can manage the care and maintenance of both your front yard and your backyard to ensure both get the proper care they need.

4. Using Your Ground Cover for Too Long

There is no doubt that ground covers are extremely useful for lawns of all shapes and sizes in Gainesville. They can keep weeds out while keeping your home’s lawn looking its very best. However, the fact of the matter is that if they are left on your lawn too long, then they can become less of a help and more of a hazard. A surefire way of avoiding the issues that excessive ground covers can have on your lawn is by installing an optimally integrated one in the first place. At J.W. Lawncare Inc, we are committed to providing a superior ground cover that will not be beat for design or quality. What many homeowners in Gainesville forget to keep in mind is that picking a ground cover like English Ivy can actually end up being a bad decision. The reason for this is simple; despite being a highly effective ground cover, English Ivy can get out of hand very quickly and end up affecting the growth patterns of your lawn.

5. Rushed Decisions When it Comes to Mulch

At J.W. Lawncare Inc, we know that mulch isn’t the most exciting of landscaping topics. However, what you may not know is that it is one of the most important and, as a result, needs to be taken very seriously. Deciding, how, when and where to use mulch is one of the most important parts of proper landscape management. In fact, on of the biggest mistakes that people make when it comes to mulch is to try and do too much, too soon. For instance, a type of mulch that may be perfect for certain types of plants could end up being terrible for others.

Similarly, a mulch containing tiny stones could end up being downright dangerous for your plants. In truth, you really need to avoid using such a mulch anywhere where you do not plan on keeping it for a long time. The stones eventually work their way down through the soil and become a nightmare to extricate. So, a top tip from us is to avoid this type of mulch at all times. Finally, up to now we have only looked at mulch that is harmful to your plants but the reality is that some mulch pairings can be so destructive that they end up damaging your plants so detrimentally that they push your precious flora and fauna past the point of no return.

6. Planting Messy Trees

One of the biggest mistakes that that homeowners in Gainesville often make is to plant messy trees that they simply cannot take care of. And while it is true that there is no such thing as a tree without any type of mess, the reality is that some cause more problems than others. Some trees are relatively mess-free, one such example is the sunburst honey-locust. Because its leaves are tiny, they aren't terribly noticeable when they drop. That's why you'll often find this "clean" tree used along city streets or in parks.

Sustainable Landscaping Services

LED lights, energy efficient appliances and better insulation have all swept across the Gainesville area in recent years. Why have environmentally friendly innovations increased in popularity? Our best guess is because the people of Gainesville area feel a mixture of social, environmental and economic pressures to make sure they are doing their part for a better tomorrow.

If you belong to this sub sect of Gainesville home and business owners who feel like they need something to sow the seeds of a brighter future today, a great place to start is with your property’s landscape. The goal of sustainable landscaping is to create healthy, regenerative landscapes that are economically viable. With reduced labor, materials and lower long-term maintenance costs, it’s no wonder why more home and businesses owners in the Gainesville area have taken a shine to the notion of sustainable landscaping.

Aside from the obvious cost-effectiveness and ecological benefits of switching to a sustainable landscape, when you choose to make the switch with J.W. Lawncare Inc., we guarantee that we will design a sustainable landscape that is as beautiful as the conventional one you either had or have always dreamt of. Our extensive experience in the field and our commitment to always improving our level of service has helped us get an edge on the competition and have successfully designed sustainable landscapes all over Gainesville.

What makes a landscape sustainable? Take a look at some of the features of a sustainable landscape below.

Sustainable soil. It all begins with the soil. Enriching your property’s soil with organic matter will help it absorb water and drain better, resulting in healthier plant growth and less water run-off. When the soil has been made extremely healthy, you won’t have to pay for fertilizer and it will also help the soil lock up carbon that might otherwise go up into the atmosphere.

Water conservation. Fresh water is without a doubt our most precious natural resource. By choosing plants that are both easy on water consumption and beautiful, you won’t have to pay extra on your next utility bill and you’ll have a clean conscience knowing that water someone could have used isn’t getting lost in the ground. J.W. Lawncare Inc.’s team of specialists can also set you up with a special irrigation design and rainwater harvesters to make sure that not a drop of water is wasted.

Plant choice. One of the biggest wasters of valuable resources in landscaping is when people choose a plant genus that looks pretty but isn’t fit to survive in the Gainesville climate. By choosing native plant species or highly adaptable plant species, you can rest knowing that you aren’t fighting an uphill battle to keep your plant life alive and well.

Sustainable maintenance. Applying sustainable practices to the maintenance of a landscape vastly improves the health and appearance of a property while reducing the long-term costs. One example of sustainable maintenance is rather than bagging your grass clippings, they can be reused as a mulch to improve the health of your lawn.
