Landscaping versus Lawn Maintenance – What’s the Difference?

Landscaping versus Lawn Maintenance – What’s the Difference?

Landscaping, lawn care, and lawn maintenance are terms that are used in the industry by professionals almost interchangeably. In many cases, Landscaping businesses also offer lawn care or maintenance, but there are companies that offer only lawn care services while others offer landscaping services exclusively. When hiring a service for your lawn, you need to know what to expect, so, what exactly is the difference?

Lawn Care and Maintenance Services

Lawn Care and Lawn Maintenance Services improve and care for your current lawn, without making changes to the structure or layout of your yard. These service providers offer mowing, trimming, edging, weed eating, leaf removal, as well as lawn fertilization, weed control, pest control, seeding, aeration, turf plug planting, and sod replacement as needed. Some lawn care and lawn maintenance companies ever provide free service calls should a problem arrive before their next scheduled visit to your home.

Landscaping Services

Landscaping Services include the transformation of your outdoor space through the planting, rearranging, restructuring, or construction. These professionals, who often have a great deal of experience as well as considerable formal education. They design green space and oversee the planting, restructuring, lighting, irrigation, and construction of hardscapes and softscapes, as well as the installation of outdoor features including walkways, pavers, patios, decks, walls, and more. Many landscaping companies perform commercial and residential landscaping along with lawn care and maintenance.

Commercial Landscaping

Commercial Landscaping is typically secured through bidding against other landscaping companies hoping to gain your project. Commercial landscapers may often offer landscaping as well as lawn care and maintenance plans. Premium commercial landscaping companies complete their projects from design to installation. In addition, commercial landscapers work with new construction projects as well as established businesses and organizations seeking redesign and beautification.

Trusted Commercial Landscapers utilize quality materials, while meet and exceed client expectations and government codes and guidelines. Additionally, commercial landscaping companies work with communities, complexes, and commercial buildings, alongside Home Owner’s Associations (HOAs), Property Management Companies, and businesses to present each client with a welcoming landscape highlighting their property in timely and professional way.

Residential Landscaping

Landscapers specializing in residential landscaping seek the best design to enhance your home’s exterior as well as lawn care and maintenance plans to keep your home looking its best. Just like in commercial landscaping, residential landscapers often offer full service from design to installation and beyond. From the front yard to the back, residential landscapers seek to make your home an inviting haven for you, your family, and your guests. Trustworthy residential landscapers work with customers to ensure projects are completed on budget and on time, exceeding expectations.

Residential landscaping professionals perform landscape design or redesign, along with the completion of hardscapes, softscapes, water features, irrigation, lighting, as well as the planting of trees, plants, flowers, and so much more. These professionals work hard to educate you, as their customers, so that all decisions – from materials cost to labor and design – result in the finished product you dreamed of for your home.
