What Is The Difference Between Lawn Care & Landscaping

And What Service Do You Need?

Caring for your lawn, landscape, and environment is an important part of being a homeowner, business owner, or property manager. Often times the word lawn and landscape are used interchangeably within conversation, so when referencing the upkeep of your property, what is the actual difference between lawn care and landscaping and which services do you need?

Lawn Care

Starting off with lawn care, the name is fairly self explanatory. A lawn is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as “an area of short, mown grass in a yard, garden, or park.” Lawn care is the basic idea of anything that participates to the upkeep and care of your lawn. Most commonly these tasks include lawn mowing, fertilization, weed control, routine cleanup, and aeration. Clark’s Landscape offers various kinds of lawn care services for your property including lawn mowing, trimming, blowing, edging, spring and fall clean-up, pruning, weeding, mulching, and lawn feeding. These are just a few of the services that we offer for you and your property! It can be difficult to have the time to take care of your lawn properly – so let us help you with it!

Your landscape and the act of landscaping is a little bit different than lawn care. By definition, a landscape is, “all of the visible features of an area of countryside or land, often considered in terms of their aesthetic appeal.” Which means that your landscape most likely includes your lawn. Landscaping many times includes the act of planning and designing the space around you with the goal to make it more beautiful. Generally landscaping includes the installation of plants, hardscapes, fountains, and other features that enhance the aesthetic of your property. Clark’s Landscaping is a full service lawn care and landscaping company in West Michigan. We offer a wide variety of landscaping options for your property including landscape design, plantings, hardscape design & installation, hydroseeding, landscape lighting, water features and more.

Which Service Is Right For Your Space?

You might be wondering which of these two is right for your property goals, and unfortunately there isn’t a straightforward answer. You need to asses your property as well as what your vision is to see which is right for you. For example, if you are a business owner that just wants to make sure that the lawn surrounding your office building is well maintained to help your business keep a good aesthetic, then a lawn care service might be the best option for you! On the other hand, if you are a homeowner who enjoys entertaining, and loves to host your friends over for a weekend barbeque once or twice a month, then you might want to look into how our landscape services can enhance your home!
