Weed growth and lawn disease serve as some of the most pressing problems for any landscaped area, particularly during summer, according to the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP).

In Boston, the city is among the 10 cities nationwide that are most vulnerable to these problems in 2018. While the city faces the most risk, commercial landscaping services here in Lowell and other cities remain relevant for building owners and managers.

Vigilant Care

June marks the National Lawn Care Month, and the NALP reminded property owners about the importance of regular landscaping. Boston ranked fifth in the country in terms of lawn disease problems. The city’s warm weather causes the growth of crabgrass and spotted surge weeds.

High temperature is the common denominator among cities with the most pressing lawn problems. Atlanta faces a greater risk more than any other city in the country.

The NALP said that the city’s forecast temperatures would be conducive for the growth for dozens of weed species, such as thistle and nimble weed.

Higher Property Values

Regular lawn care does not only prevent lawn disease and weed growth but also enhances the value of your property. Based on a report from the NALP and National Association of Realtors, property owners can recover 267% of standard lawn care services costs upon reselling the estate.

Maintenance and tree care will let owners recover 100% of the cost after a sale, while they can recover 86% of the cost of simple landscaping installation and irrigation systems. These numbers indicate that professional landscaping is a worthwhile investment.


Whether or not you live in the most vulnerable cities, landscaping services are still important to maintain the curb appeal of your commercial establishment. Not only that, but it also enhances the resale value by the time you plan to list it on the market.
