Installing an irrigation system comes with many things to consider, such as what contractor to hire for the job, where you want the pipes to be laid out, and what type of system you want to use in your landscape beds. Generally, landscape beds typically use either traditional sprinkler systems or drip irrigation systems. Learn about these types of systems and decide which type may benefit your residential or commercial property in Granger, Elkhart, South Bend, and surrounding cities in northern Indiana.
If you are concerned with the initial upfront cost, then keep in mind that drip irrigation systems will cost more, typically around $2.50 to $4.50 per square foot depending on your property and labor costs. A traditional sprinkler system's cost will be much more economical, running about $1.50 to $2.50 per square foot for installation costs. This difference in cost may be something that you consider, especially if you plan on installing a large irrigation system.
While drip irrigation is more expensive to install, the cost may end up offsetting over the years with lower water bills.

Spring is here in full force, and we couldn't be happier about it! It is the season to start things anew and give a fresh look to the inside and outside of your home or business. If you are considering freshening up your landscaping, then right now is the perfect time to add some annual flowers to your yard/
At Grow Pros Lawn Care, LLC, we install many different varieties of warm-season annual flowers in our northern Indiana region. Learn about five popular annual flowers our landscaping crews plant in Elkhart, South Bend, Granger, and the nearby areas of Indiana.
We love annuals because they have many incredible benefits. Their blooms will last for months when they are planted in the right areas. It is also best to fertilize them throughout their growing season to maintain their blooms' vibrant colors. Annuals do only live for one year, but they will sometimes drop seeds where they sit, which means you could have new plants growing there in the following year. Some annuals we recommend installing in your landscape beds include:
Cosmos are easy to grow and attract beneficial pollinators such as bees and butterflies to your landscaping. They are very low-maintenance and have slender, high stems. Their shape resembles that of a daisy, with a bright yellow center. Flowers spread from the center in petals of yellow, pink, white, orange, magenta, red, and even brown. Plant these where...

Here at Grow Pros Lawn Care, LLC, we offer walkway installation services for residential and commercial properties in South Bend, Granger, and Elkhart, IN.
When choosing how you want your walkway to look, you must consider various factors. Before settling on a final decision, you should think about the size, color, material, and shape of pavers you want for your walkway. If you're not sure where to start, check out this guide on choosing the right pavers for your new walkway.
When it comes to choosing the right paver material for your new walkway, you must consider the durability you will need. If you live in an area that experiences heavy rain- and snowfall, you will need to opt for materials that are built to withstand inclement weather.
Brick tends to wear down in harsh weather while stone and concrete hold up better.
You will also need to think about where your walkway is being installed. If it's going to be installed under a covered area, you may be able to get away with using a more delicate material. However, walkways that are installed in uncovered areas and will be receiving a high amount of foot traffic need to be constructed with...
Unsurprisingly, winter isn't the best time for a lawn to reach its full growth potential. In fact, this dreaded season may cause your lawn to deteriorate. You shouldn't take your chances and hope it bounces back on its own.
To take the probability out of your lawn making a comeback, we at Grow Pros Lawn Care, LLC offer you expert lawn restoration services that include aeration, hydroseeding, and more. Properties in South Bend, Granger, and Elkhart, IN can take advantage of our services year-round.
As we are in the middle of winter, you should become familiar with these three reasons why your property may require lawn restoration services in the spring.
Grass can go into dormancy and live through most types of weather conditions. It can even survive being under several inches of snow, as snow acts as an insulator. However, grasses that are left exposed to cold temperatures and harsh winds will undergo desiccation, or the loss of moisture. Your grass's roots will eventually freeze over and be unable to replace this lost moisture.
As winter draws to end, you can wait and see if your grass restores its health on its own. In some cases, you may require professional seeding services so your grass can reach its full growth potential.
Voles are small rodents that are active during the winter. Because they don't go into hibernation, they are on ...
