The Benefits of Professional Landscape Maintenance: An Interview with Ben Bodnar of Integrity Landscape Management

By Ben Bodnar

Tell us a little bit about your company and its foundation.

Integrity Landscape Management is a full service grounds maintenance & lawn care company. We were founded in 2002 on the foundation of providing high- quality grounds care solutions based upon each of our client's specific needs.

What are a few areas of one's yard that require frequent maintenance? How often should these areas be serviced?

These areas would include the lawn, ornamental beds, sidewalks, driveways, and patios. An impeccable lawn is a lot of work. Mowing frequency can range from every 10 days to every day depending on the variety of turf, its desired height, and soil & weather conditions. There are also other considerations such as lawn aeration, fertilization, and pest control. The care of shrubs is very similar to lawns in that there are many variables. Paved areas should be checked at least twice a month for weeds germinating through cracks and crevices, and handled accordingly.

In short, what are some benefits associated with keeping a well maintained lawn? What about if you are looking to sell your home?

A well maintained lawn provides numerous environmental benefits, an inviting outdoor living space, and adds splendid curb appeal to any residence, or commercial property. If one is looking to sell, what do you think the first thing the prospective buyer sees while pulling up to the property? You guessed it? The landscape! Don't go wrong in neglecting to care for what could be the the biggest first impression.

What are some lawn maintenance services that professionals have the ability to handle where homeowners may not?

If a homeowner has some high-maintenance facets to his property, that person may not have the equipment, experience, nor time to handle all the work. An example would be a TifEagle bermuda lawn that would require mowing twice a week with a powered reel mower, aeration at least twice a year, and a full 12-step chemical program.

In your opinion, what are the biggest benefits of hiring a professional versus trying to do it yourself?

The biggest benefits of hiring a professional include additional free time, and peace of mind knowing the grounds are being maintained properly.
