Landscape companies hire professionals who have proven their skills when working with plants and grass. Some go to college and receive a degree in agriculture, while others have learned about plants over the years when taking care of their own gardens and lawns.
Each landscaping company provides different services. Some have the equipment necessary to plant Bermuda grass, pasture grass, or hydroseed to grow that type of grass. Others install artificial turf for customers who do not want to constantly water grass to make it look green. Other companies plant flowers, trees, and remove weeds from a garden. They help home owners set up an irrigation system so the grass and plants are watered properly and evenly. Many landscaping companies offer to mow lawns as often as homeowners want. They cut the grass at a height the customer wants to keep the grass healthy.
Many home improvement stores sell grass seeds in multiple varieties, sod, and fertilizer, as well as roll-out grass, artificial turf, and cutting equipment. Employees are available to help customers locate the type of sod or seeds they're looking for, and to answer questions they may have about lawn care and what to do in a drought. Getting the proper fertilizer is also important. Some can be used for the whole yard, while others are made specifically for grass or plants. Stores that sell grass and yard supplies often carry hardware for homes, replacement parts, and some home decorations. When looking for a specific thing, asking an employee can help customers locate the right aisle.
