Lawn Service, Columbia S.C. from Busy Bee Lawn Care & Sprinkler Repair

Since 2006, Busy Bee lawn care service and sprinkler repair, Inc has been the best lawn service Columbia S.C., Lexington and Irmo have seen.  We take pride in our craftsmanship using Stihl weedeater for sharp edging, quality commercial John Deere lawn mowers with sharp mulching blades for healthy grass, and knowledge of proper turf grass maintenance practices that come with experience. 

Sprinkler Repair and Irrigation Installation are core services we offer in Lexington Irmo and Columbia

The first broken sprinkler head replacement we did was as a result of regular yard maintenance. This irrigation repair and subsequent other sprinkler repair issues like leaking valves or broken pvc water main pipes moved us to a new level of service.  We are now a top ranked irrigation company servicing brands like Rain Bird, Hunter, Orbit, Toro, Weathermatic and Irritrol systems.  We also expertly trench to install irrigation systems using top quality parts and craftsmanship. 

Our Lawn service offers a complete grounds maintenance package year round.  

In the early spring, we apply pre emergent weed control, prune crepe myrtles, continue with residual fall leaf cleanup, keep the yard mowed smooth and work on trimming dormant perennials like lantana and ornamental grasses. In mowing season, we come biweekly doing regular turf maintenance, bush and hedge shaping and fertilization services. We carefully spray flower beds for weeds with herbicide to kill weeds to the root. In the fall we keep busy blowing leaves and doing fall cleanup from the various deciduous trees that are indigenous to Richland County and Lexington County such as oak trees, pine trees that shed straw, dogwoods and poplars. Through the Carolina Winter we stay on top of every aspect of your residential or commercial grounds keeping them neat as a pin. 

We also offer outdoor landscape lighting installation and repair.  Old halogen bulb systems are a thing of the past. We focus on converting to energy efficient LED landscape lighting which offers much more benefits. We can design your system from the path lights on the front paver walkway to the palm tree uplights to accent lights on your house and more.  We only use top shelf products from Kitchler, Vista, FX Luminare and more. Enhance the beauty and security of your yard and have Busy Bee install landscape lighting for you!  

The types of lawn grasses we mow include centipede, zoysia, St. Augustine, Bermuda, rye and other ground covers such as lariope. In Columbia South Carolina, we typically don’t have bluegrass or fescue which are cool climate grasses.  Centipede is a low maintenance ground cover. The roots don’t go too deep into the dirt and the blades don’t need to be kept every tall. It’s easy to maintain but is not shade tolerant. In The South, we call it “lazy man’s grass”.  Bermuda is another popular turf we mow. It is a full sun plant that can not tolerate shade. Bermuda can be overseeded in the fall with annual or perennial ryegrass for year round outdoor color. Most strains should be cut low and frequently.  Zoysia is popular here. It’s a slow grower, but is heat tolerant and more shade tolerant than others. It grows thick and can endure lots of traffic. It is one of the more expensive sod choices. Zoysia is originally from China. 

Our Landscape maintenance services in Columbia of course include expert monitoring of the irrigation watering schedule depending upon the season.  In the growing season, watering frequency and duration should be set on the control panel to maximum.  In the winter, often times it can be turned to the off position and on some sprinkler systems with water pump supply you may want to consider winterization.
