If you have a lawn, you know how much time and energy go into keeping in beautiful, neat, and clean all year long. Mowing, trimming, and fertilizing are demanding tasks and it’s always useful to get some help. Sometimes it feels like you’re mowing your lawn every two days during summer months. And yet, you can’t just leave it uncut as it can ruin the look of your home.
Your neighbors, your guests, everyone who passes by it will notice it which is why it’s important to keep it looking presentable.
Luckily for you, you can hire help and you won’t have to do everything on your own. There are qualified lawn care professionals that will make sure your lawn is healthy and beautiful all year long. However, there are so many of them it can be difficult trying to find the right one.
Here are some tips on how to find the perfect lawn care company:
Define your wishes
It’s important for you to know what you want your lawn care company to do for you. Many lawn companies offer mowing, fertilizing, pest control, weed control, fertilizing, and small tree and shrub maintenance. Ask around to see which company can offer services you need and how good they are at it.
Liqui Green has a pretty detailed description of what lawns might need during different seasons. As conditions change so do your lawn’s needs.
Check their reputation
You want a company that has a good reputation and who you can truly count on to do a good job. Research the company online, look for reviews and recommendation and ask your friends and neighbors about who they are hiring. Talking to your neighbors will let you know which services operate in your neighborhood and even see them in action. Also, check for any news mentions and accolades.
License and price
It’s always a good idea to hire a licensed company as you’ll be certain your lawn will receive the best treatment. They are experienced, trained professionals that only use the best and eco-friendly products and you can count on them to provide everything they have promised.
However, hiring an unlicensed company can be cheaper, so the question is are you willing to risk it?
Another important thing you should ask the company is are they insured. Hiring an insured company means that you won’t be held responsible in case a worker gets hurt on your property.
Check how eco-friendly they are
Many companies pollute the environment a lot by using gas-powered mowers and other equipment that is harmful not only to people but to the air and soil as well. There are companies that don’t use gasoline and are much quieter.
Request a lawn inspection and a free estimate cost.
This will allow you to see exactly what your lawn needs and how much that will cost you. Of course, there are some companies that will simply tell you their annual price without taking a look at your lawn, but you’ll want to avoid them.
