Tips For Selecting A Lawn Maintenance Company

Author : Ryan Wolfe


Yard maintenance can be a chore that is not always enjoyable. Maintaining a represent able area requires trimming, mowing, fertilizing, and problem prevention. If this job presents more worry and less enjoyment consider employing a lawn service company.

However, you need to ensure the company you hire will do a proper job while being suited to the areas needs, and also suitable to your budget. When selecting a yard maintenance company, it is a good idea to meet with a representative to determine their experience, knowledge, and dedication to the jobs they accept. Asks questions such as what kinds of fertilizers are used, how often they spray, and what specific recommendations they may have. Receiving references from neighbors will provide a list of services in the area with a good standing. Personal experience can reveal all the pros and cons that may not be told in the interview process. There are many different types of lawn maintenance services offered. Some companies may provide packages including the basics such as mowing and weed control or one more including the more detailed job of pruning shrubs and hedges all year round.

After deciding what yard maintenance is required, request a lawn inspection and free estimate of service cost from the company. If satisfied with the services offered, decide on what agreement will be made concerning the costs, how routinely yard maintenance will take place, and what results can be expected. Receive a guarantee that pesticides will be applied at all times and not only "weather permitting," since some companies will not be upfront about the fine print. All of the details should be confirmed within a written contract outlining fees of the services provided and the routine at which they will be administered. The contract may also state whether the company assures performance or will refund money if not satisfied with the outcome. Be wary of companies that promise the same or similar services of others for a lesser price. Although this may seem ideal, it is vital to remember that a lower price does not always mean a better lawn.

The lawn maintenance company selected should offer verification that they are licensed to apply lawn-care products. A local Better Business Bureau can give information on a specific lawn- care company service record. This can include whether or not the company is certified by the state and also if they have the correct insurance. Checking into a company's records and certifications will prevent hiring one with a bad reputation. By knowing all the appropriate information there can be peace of mind that the selected lawns care company is committed to providing the best care and an unconditional guarantee.

Choosing a yard maintenance company that fits lawn and budget needs will make the owner and the yard happy and more enjoyable. Although it takes a great deal of work to reach lawn perfection, by finding the perfect company everything can be maintained and will improve the overall health and beauty of the area.
