Edward Scott Lampert (aka Eddie) is an American businessman whose career successes are many. When it came to investing, to this day he is still remembered for sharing this axiom with his clients: “The entrance strategy is actually more important than the exit strategy.”
As we start this new year, we are reminded of these words relative to our comprehensive suite of lawn and landscape care services. Your lawn and landscape will always be the first impression of you and your home for first-time visitors and passersby.
The First Impression That Says A Lot About You
There are many benefits of having a healthy lawn apart from first impressions and appearances. Maintaining a healthy lawn will also give the impression that you care about your family, their well-being and your home.
A well-cared-for lawn provides an outdoor space that also serves as an extension of your house. With outdoor living spaces now in high demand since the COVID pandemic, lawns now serve as the bedrock leading to those leisure outdoor spaces where you can refresh your spirit and extend livable square footage as part of your home.
Alfresco dinner or a family barbecue? What better place to enjoy it all – and all that goes with it – than on a lush green lawn landscape just steps from your home’s interior.

How A Well Maintained Lawn And Landscape Adds Value To Your Life And Your Home
Research proves that when you make the outside of your home more inviting, it shows that you care about it – and that is when your home’s value increases.
Supporting this, according to The Lawn Institute, a well-maintained lawn can increase a home’s property value by 15 to 20 percent.
Furthermore, the National Association of Landscape Professionals says a survey showed just how important a lawn was. The Association reports that 79 percent of Americans say a lawn is one of the most important features of a house when they are looking to buy one.
With TurfMasters As My Lawn Care Provider, What Can I Do To Ensure My Lawn Is In Optimum Condition?
If you do not subscribe to a regularly scheduled mowing service, purchase a high-quality lawn mower. You’ll thank yourself over time for making that investment.
If your lawn is large, you may want to consider getting a riding mower to reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to keep the grass looking good.
In addition, you may also want an edger and blower to keep things looking neat and well maintained.
