When talking about your yard, you may use the terms “lawn care” and “landscaping” interchangeably. The truth is, these are two very different concepts. You have the option of hiring a professional to do both lawn care and landscaping services for your property, or you may prefer to handle one on your own. Here’s a closer look at the distinction between the two so you can decide how to best budget your professional help this year.
What is Lawn Care?
Lawn care refers to the maintenance of your grass and yard. It includes tasks like watering, raking, mowing and trimming your grass. It can also include “lawn health” specialty services like leveling, aerating or overseeding. While landscaping may be considered optional, lawn care should be a non-negotiable routine task for your turf if you want it to survive.
What is Landscaping?
Landscaping focuses on the appearance of your yard. It can include design elements that are unique to your individual style and preferences. Landscaping services can include adding features or hardscapes to your lawn as well as rearranging properties that already exist. This may involve planting flowers or trees, adding a patio space or walkway with pavers, building a garden, and other aesthetic-driven tasks for your yard. Not everyone has the creative eye to establish an attractive landscape and consider the overall balance of outdoor design.
