Imagine stepping outside to enjoy a nice evening out on your patio in Buffalo, Lancaster, East Amherst, or the surrounding areas in New York. By installing hardscaping elements in your yard, you can!
Hardscaping is defined as the manmade features in a yard, like patios, walls, fire pits, outdoor kitchens, and more. When you combine that with softscaping—the plants, flowers, shrubs, and other organic plant matter—in your yard, you get landscaping.
Hardscapes can not only improve your curb appeal, but they can also increase your property value. There are many reasons you should add hardscaping to your property.
When retaining walls are installed, they can raise planting beds and help to prevent soil from eroding away in a rainstorm. They can also help level out hills on your property to create usable space where grass and other plants can begin to grow. By adding matching seating walls, you can create seating in your outdoor living space for friends and family to enjoy the outdoors at any time.

There is a lot that goes into getting your lawn ready for the high-traffic months of spring and summer in Buffalo, Lancaster, East Amherst, NY and the surrounding areas. To withstand all the activity between mowing, kids running around, and entertaining guests, your grass needs to be fortified with various things like fertilizer, weed control, and insect control.
Getting your lawn ready for the year is a big task that involves many aspects but one of the most important things you can do in the spring is to fertilize your lawn.
Your lawn needs three essential nutrients to thrive: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Each nutrient fosters different things within your grass. Nitrogen is used all year long because it helps produce chlorophyll, which is needed for maximum photosynthesis. Phosphorus helps roots grow strong, so it’s used for new grass mostly. Potassium helps plants retain water as well as other nutrients.
All three play a different role and lawn care experts like Buffalo Lawn & Landscape can help determine the best kinds of fertilizer to use based on the health of your grass and soil.
When choosing fertilizer, it’s best to trust a lawn care professional. A fertilizer with too much or not enough of one nutrient can have adverse effects on your lawn!
Overall, your yard should receive six treatments a year. Two of those should happen in the...

Spring is the perfect time to start lawn care maintenance, as our first treatment is applied in early spring with fertilizer and pre-emergent weed control. In late spring, the grass gets another treatment with slow-release fertilizer to encourage strong growth, as well as more weed control if necessary.
In early and late summer, more treatments are applied to fortify the grass. Our early fall treatment prepares the turf for winter...
