Lawns and landscaping require year-round attention in Texas as we have such warm weather, which begins with lawn mowing and landscape maintenance services. April through October is our fastest growing season, and some lawns may require mowing as much as once per week depending on rainfall. During the dry (good reason for EDGE to install a sprinkler system)and cooler months of November through March, lawns grow at a slower pace than the rainy summer months and can typically be mowed only once or twice per month. We will be more than accommodating to fit the right pattern for your yard. The most popular type of sod used is Bermuda or St Augustine grass. These grasses are great choices for this area but can quickly become overgrown when they are not being regularly mowed. Regardless of the season, Saint Augustine and Bermuda should be kept three to four inches high for optimum health and attractiveness. During winter months, Ryegrass is a popular supplement to existing lawns and may only require mowing as little as every three weeks and should be kept around two inches high.

Pressure and Power Washing Services Pressure washing can be a sufficient solution for smaller areas like driveways, decks and possibly the exterior of your house. A good time for pressure washing is when you want to increase curb appeal. It is a great way to add value without doing extreme improvements and achieves an almost brand-new look for your home exterior. Since power washing is done with such force, it is recommended that it only be used on larger, exterior surfaces such as patios, fences, pathways and other types of stone. Soft washing is a completely different service than power washing and pressure washing. Soft washing uses eco-friendly and environmentally safe, chemical solutions to clean the exterior of your house. Irrigation Service and Repairs Maintaining your irrigation system is an important step in keeping your lawn green and healthy. We show homeowners how to save money, rather than unnecessary watering of their lawns and landscape. Irrigation systems are the most efficient method when it comes to watering your lawn, but if they are not properly programmed or don’t receive the necessary maintenance required, your sprinkler system could be costing you more money than necessary. Studies have shown that residential homeowners use 20-50% more water on their lawns and landscape than it really needs. Plus, you want to help avoid any water restrictions when it gets too hot for any length of time. Benefits of a properly maintained irrigation system. Watering your lawn is a very important task, and an irrigation system saves you hours of time to get the perfect lawn. Watering your lawn requires you must do so at regular intervals and with the appropriate amounts of water. On the outset, it seems relatively easy, but we see many plants and lawns suffer, or even die, from underwatering or even overwatering. A few benefits from a professionally programmed and maintained irrigation system include: Saves you money: A properly functioning sprinkler system will save you time and money; we know your time is valuable. Our team will check to make sure all sprinkler heads are working correctly and that there aren’t any leaks within your irrigation system. Your irrigation system will be programmed to water the lawn and landscape in the correct areas, with the appropriate amount of water, and at the proper times. Saves you time: Irrigation systems work on a programmed schedule. You will no longer have to think about watering your landscaping (trees, grass, bushes, and even walkways, if desired) as the sprinkler system will do that for you. The days of dragging the hose and sprinkler out are over, especially when the hose will not reach to the far corners of the yard. Saves water: When your irrigation system is properly functioning, your lawn and landscaping will only receive the amount of water it needs. Your lawn will thrive, stay healthy, and maintain its beauty as originally intended. Lawn diseases that a proper sprinkler system can help you avoid. Overwatering or underwatering your lawn can make it more prone to diseases and long-term. Some of the potential problems include: Brown Patch A lawn can be easily be destroyed by brown patch, Rhizoctonia species, a serious fungal disease that can affect all South Texas lawn grasses. It can impact a lawn if the conditions are met. It can develop rapidly when temperatures are warm (70° to 90° F) and humid, especially during warmer periods of the fall and winter months. Warm-season grasses such as St. Augustine (especially the over-planted ‘Raleigh’ selection), Bermuda, and Zoysia are most commonly affected by brown patch (also called large patch) during the early spring and late fall. Root Rot Occurs when the roots appear black and will cause your lawn to turn yellow, then brown. This will cause the grass to die off, leaving dead spots in your lawn. This disease is caused by a soil fungus, often due to overwatering. Powdery Mildew A very apparent lawn disease that will leave a powdery white substance covering the lawn surface. Rot This often occurs in the thatch buildup where areas of the lawn are not receiving enough direct sunlight and are being overwatered; we have several remedies for this, as may be common in more mature homes with overgrowth of trees.

Lighting EDGE Landscaping focuses on all hardscaping and soft scaping, with that comes lighting to all these beautiful designs. When done correctly, with appropriate planning and design, you will see it is more than just adding a few lights. We specialize in landscape lighting design, including the different techniques and variety of lighting types, such as those with traditional electricity or solar. We want our customers to enjoy their new outdoor living spaces at night, as much as they do during the day. Our team has the expertise and experience to deliver, in large or small areas, lighting in ponds, waterfalls, pools, and trees. We are confident that we'll turn your vision into reality when it comes to outdoor lighting. There are many different lighting effects, lighting fixtures and placements. Down lighting from hardscaping surfaces is when light fixtures are placed upside down under benches, countertops and seating walls. During the day these lights are hidden, but at night they create a soft glow. Spot Lighting is used to highlight a main feature, such as a water fountain or any other focal point. One or two spotlights are typically used to highlight center pieces. Path Lighting is basic, but is very popular when lighting steps, walkways and driveways. Up Lighting uses low voltage lighting and is most commonly used to light up a tree from the ground. These lights are typically placed 8-10 feet from the trunk and will produce light that highlights the shape and trunk structure. Grazing is generally used to highlight a texture or some other stone work. Lights are placed right against the wall with the beams pointed up, causing a shadow that captures the texture of the wall or stone work.
