Summer is the best time to enjoy «Frank Albano Lawn Care Service». Mowing the lawn could be a beneficial for your grass. Proper mowing increases the density of the lawn, which in turn decreases weeds. It is important to keep the right grass length to maintain a healthy lawn. Grass grows from the bottom up. We typically trim the top third and that promotes a root system to grow deeper and reach water that is further down in the soil. Removing more than 1/3 height at one time can do damage to the grass. The grass should be taller during the summer months, at the same time, it is also important not to let the grass get too long. In cooler weather, we can cut the grass a little lower. We recommend mowing grass higher in shaded areas under trees. In these areas, grass has to compete with tree roots for water and nutrients.
Another important aspect of mowing for the health of your lawn is the mulch that is produced afterwards. The mulch should be spread throughout your yard evenly without any clumps or rows. It's also good for your lawn. This technique (known as grass cycling) returns nutrients to the grass and soil and helps retain moisture your lawn. The easiest and cheapest option is to throw on a mulching blade and mulch while you mow. The pieces break down quickly and reduce the amount of fertilizer you have to use by as much as 25 percent. Another option is to collect the dead grass clippings and add them to your compost bin.
Each type of grass has a recommended mowing height. Find out which type of grass is in your lawn. Call us at (617)519-0558 for a FREE Lawn Evaluation. It is very important to check the type of grass in your yard before taking any serious steps.
The mowing season in New England usually begins in May and continues throughout the end of October. Our mowing service includes cutting and trimming all edges of all lawn areas, and blowing the trimmings off all hard to reach areas. Performed on a weekly or bi-weekly basis May through October. Lawns grow faster in the spring and in the fall, so a bi-weekly cutting schedule is not offered during these periods. We always maintain a height of 2-3 inches and never cut over 1/3 of grass leaf in one cut for your vigorous lawn. The maintenance crew may determine that your lawn does not require a cut. In this instance, a notice will be left by the crew to inform you and there will be no charge for the visit as no services have been performed on your property.

Growing a new lawn from grass seed is one of the most satisfying home improvements.
Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps the roots grow deeply and produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn. The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a certain volume or space, which prevents proper circulation of air, water and nutrients within the soil.
Pruning is completed during July and August, but can be completed at any time of the year if a plant has grown too large for its location. Regular annual pruning of shrubs controls the size of the plant; helps define the shape and density of the plant, with new growth and flowering.
Mulching beds improve the appearance of any landscape. A layer of mulch provides many other benefits such as the reduction in temperature fluctuations in the soil, conserving moisture in the soil, suppressing weed growth. Mulch can protect a plant's root system, add nutrients to the soil and slow the erosion of topsoil. So, mulching is one of the most important ways to maintain a healthy landscape.
Improper mulching could become a killer for your trees and shrubs. Before re-mulching, turn the old mulch to allow air, water and nutrients to reach plant roots. Old mulch can actually harm plants by creating a layer that does not decompose and does not allow root growth, water cannot penetrate to the roots, and the plants will suffer. Leave three to six inches between trees / shrubs and mulch, avoid covering perennials.
We recommend stripping off as much of the old mulch as you can and top dress with an inch of new mulch. Make sure the mulch layer less than three inches deep. Mulch over three inches deep does more harm than good and must be removed. Apply fertilizer to the stripped beds before you put down the mulch. Make sure the mulch does not touch the trunk of trees or shrubs. Mulch "rings" around trees protect the tree from lawn mower and trimmer string attacks, and it looks nice.

Landscape Design & Landscaping
Landscape design represents an opportunity to connect together architecture and landscape. Landscape design is a design and art tradition, practiced by landscape designers, combining nature and culture. Gardens are dynamic and not static after construction and planting are completed. Landscaping refers to any activity that modifies the visible features of an area of land, including: Living elements, such as flora or fauna; or what is commonly called gardening, the art and craft of growing plants with a goal of creating a beauty within the landscape.
Lawn Installation / Sod
There is nothing that brings a home to life with more dramatic results than a brand new lawn. A lawn installation is a great way to expand your outdoor living space. Timing, weather conditions, budget, and the grade of your landscape are factors to consider when reviewing traditional seeding, laying sod, and hydro-seeding and determine the best approach for you and your property. Installing new sod is a perfect solution to patchy and withered grass, and is a quicker and easier way to create a lush outdoor space than trying to spread grass seed and then wait for it to sprout.
Landscaping can be completed only with right planting. Planting calendar plays very important role and we can help to plan your planting and then complete it.
We provide many masonry services with brick and stone works: Walkways, Patios, Firepits. Stone patios and walkways add a nice uniqueness to any property. Stone patios and walkways are durable and are highly versatile for the various spaces of your yard. Fire pits are ideal for creating an extension of your home where you can relax and socialise. Much like indoor fireplaces, fire pits provide the perfect focal point for an outdoor sitting area, and they look fantastic.
