Edging and edge trimming is an extremely important service that every lawn needs. The edging process can make all the difference between a simple mowed lawn and a clean, beautiful yard that looks manicured and immaculate. If you're looking for edge trimming services in Holly Springs NC to take your lawn to the next level, Mow By Design is your best option!

Why Does My Lawn Need Edging Services?

Edging is the process of making a lawn look neat after it has been mowed. Think of it as the finishing touches of your lawn care service. Edging helps to stop the spread of grass to other areas of your yard. By clearly defining the beds of grass and their borders, edging keeps your lawn looking clean and prevents grass growth in unwanted areas.

One of the biggest misconceptions about edging is that the areas surrounding sidewalks are the only areas that need edge trimming services. This is not true; in addition to sidewalks, it is important to trim the edges surrounding stone fixtures and flowerbeds.

It is also important to use the right tools for edge trimming. Using the wrong type of tools and equipment when edging could lead to an unfinished look. At Mow By Design, we use gas-powered metal edgers in order to get a deeper cut and achieve a more professional look.

Mowing your own lawn can be a wearisome chore. Our team has the equipment and manpower to keep your lawn looking neat and healthy all year long. Mowing and edging consistently is the biggest part of a well-kept lawn. Whether you prefer weekly mowing with a true mower for a fuller lawn or only want a monthly trim, Mow By Design will treat your lawn with care and attention.

How often should my lawn be mowed?

It is best to have your lawn mowed frequently. Frequent mowing helps to train your grass to grow out instead of up; this makes your lawn healthier and fuller. In general most grass is best mowed once a week.

Grass length varies depending on location, but in general, grass is healthiest at around 3 inches long. However, some neighborhoods place restrictions on this, so it is best to check with your HOA in order to avoid a fine.

It is also important to avoid over-mowing. Having your lawn mowed too often can potentially put a strain on the grass and harm your lawn in the long run; lawn mowing is best left to professionals who will ensure that your lawn is taken care of!

Types of Grass

There are many different types of grass that can make up your lawn, and each requires its own type of care. Learn more about diffrent types of grass below:

Zoysia Grass: this type of grass is somewhat durable to wear. It is slow-growing and thick. This grass is also known for being tolerant of varying conditions and spreads quickly. Zoysia grass thrives in 80-95 degree weather and requires lower maintenance than other types of grass.

Bermuda Grass: Bermuda grass is one of the tougher types of grasses. Bermuda is known for being very tolerant of heat and drought. It has deep roots and grows very quickly. Bermuda grass requires a higher maintenance level.

St. Augustine Grass: this type of grass is also known as Raleigh St. Augustine. This grass was released by the state of North Carolina in 1980. It has a coarser texture than other types of grass and thrives in humid environments, as well as in saltier areas near beaches. It is also known for its beautiful blue-green hue.

Centipede Grass: this type of grass is known for being heat resistant and is one of the most low maintenance grass types you can find. Centipede grass has very low nutrient needs, and is great for lawns with sandy and acidic soils.

No matter what your lawn looks like, we are here to help make it the best it's ever been! We’re able to trim hedges, bushes, and shrubs multiple times during the season, or on an as-needed basis. This will provide continued growth, optimal health, and your best looking landscape.

Why do I need trimming services?

Nothing quite sticks out in a front lawn than an overgrown hedge. Not only do they look bad, they can grow to block windows and walking paths. Trimming trees, bushes, and hedges also helps to promote a healthy growth rate. Think of it like getting your hair trimmed; bushes and hedges that go untrimmed for too long can begin to get unruly and grow in unflattering directions. Bushes and trees that grow fast need frequent trimming services.

Leave It to the Professionals

However, trimming trees, shrubs, and bushes can be dangerous without the right equipment. Often times, ladders and a bit of muscular endurance are needed. It is easiest and safest to leave the trimming process to professionals. Whether you have 30 crimson fires or a couple of evergreen bushes, our team at Mow By Design will be happy to keep them neatly trimmed all year round.

Mow By Design provides mulching and pinestraw services year-round for both yearly replenishing and one-time needs. We offer installation, maintenance, and removal of mulched areas. We only use quality mulch and pinestraw, and can help suggest types of mulch and places in your yard that would benefit from mulching and the addition of pinestraw.

Mulching Services

Mulch comes in all kinds of colors and varieties. Though pleasing to the eyes, it has more than just aesthetic purposes. It acts as a cover from the sun. Properly laid mulch will help the soil stay cool and retain moisture as well as discourage the growth of weeds.

It is best to have mulch and/or pinestraw installed in your yard twice a year for optimum health. Ideally, mulch should be placed in mid-spring and in the fall as well, ensuring proper mulch placement in the harsher summer and winter months.

Mulch vs Pinestraw

Many people often struggle with choosing between placing mulch or pinestraw in their yards. Each of these options has certain benefits.

Mulch, while typically more expensive, is know for having better moisture retention, more nutrients, a better weed barrier, and typically lasts longer than pinestraw.

Pinestraw can be more acidic if it is laid while wet, but it is known for being easy to move/spread, is more erosion resistant, and does not have to be removed. However, it is also less stable and more likely to blow away.

Nobody wants for their yard to be covered in leaves or tree limbs. Many homeowners try to maintain leaves and limbs themselves; however, this can prove to be a daunting task after heavy winds, a big storm, or even the onset of fall weather. Leave it to the lawn care professionals at Mow By Design to rid your yard of leaves and fallen limbs!

Leaf Removal Services

Nearly every type of tree begins to shed its leaves at the beginning of autumn. Trees that produce the most leaves include Sycamore, Oak, and Maple trees. Coincidentally, these are some of the more common trees in this region. Leaves begin to fall around October and continue until early January, peaking in late November.

At Mow By Design, our leaf removal process includes leaf blowing and leaf collection. It is also helpful to have an area of your yard designated for leaf collection and decay. Many homeowners designate the back portions of their backyard for this, but it could also be located in your side yard. Leaves take 6-12 months to decay and help to add nutrients back to the soil.

Limb Removal Services

Most people are quite shocked to see just how many limbs can fall off of a tree in any given season. Fallen limbs are typically most abundant after a storm, a windy day, or after a snowfall weighs them down. At Mow By Design, our limb removal method involves taking limbs off-site or placing them in a designated area, much like the designated areas for leaves.


You may have found out the hard way removing a set of shrubs or a small tree from your property is harder than it looks. Mow By Design has the equipment and experience to neatly remove any feature on your lawn as well as fill in the remaining space. If you are wondering about removing a small tree or shrubs from your yard please contact us!
