Does your lawn look a little drab? Is your lawn looking a little worse for wear these days? Does 30-50% of it appear dead or sparse? If so, it’s time to face the facts: you need to renovate your lawn.
You may be tempted to tackle this task on your own. That certainly is an option, but it’s not always the best one. Taking care of your lawn yourself can lead to accidents, damage, or other issues that will take time and money to fix. Using a professional lawn service addresses those concerns while providing a quality renovation to suit any homeowner’s needs.
Here are a few of the many benefits of using a professional lawn service:
Save Money on Lawn Care
Seeding a lawn is an expensive endeavor. For every 1000 square feet, costs can run anywhere from $90-180. If your yard is big, costs climb even higher. While it may seem cheaper to seed it yourself, hiring a professional service limits costly mistakes and often comes with a maintenance contract. Why pay potentially $1000 or more to seed your own lawn, when a good lawn care service will cost half as much and provide a professional product/service? Hidden costs associated with DIY lawn care can also be an issue. It ultimately depends on the service and your location, but saving money on lawn care over time is as simple as hiring the professionals.
Get High-Quality Results
Renovations can be a costly endeavor and it may be troublesome to get the results you want, when you want them. While a do-it-yourself approach can yield results, the lack of commercial grade products and full knowledge can lead to lackluster growth or a dying lawn. Quality lawn care services offer not only a professional touch, but an array of other services as well. They’ll take care of everything from fertilizing to watering schedules and beyond. Obtaining the high-quality results you want for your lawn renovation should be on your own terms. A professional lawn care service is absolutely the way to go.
Save Time and Energy
Creating and maintaining an amazing lawn is a ton of work. It requires dedication, effort, and loads of energy to keep it consistently looking good. Sure, mowing the lawn can be fun, but maintaining it can quickly become a chore. If you hire a lawn care service, they’ll put everything on a schedule for you, from a watering schedule to maintenance. They will also handle aeration – a process that enables air and water to reach grasses roots – to enhance the overall look and life of your lawn. All you have to worry about is enjoying your nice, verdant lawn.
Protection from Accidents or Damage
Getting hurt in your own yard or while doing chores is likely something you don’t think about often – or at all. The fact is, however, lawn mower accidents do happen more often than you might think. And they have severe consequences. Contact with a blade or any other mechanical surface can cause severe bodily injury or harm. Why take that chance? Allowing a professional service handle the mowing operations enables you to enjoy the results of the lawn care while protecting yourself from harm.
Better Control Over Weeds and Pests
Nothing is uglier or more unsightly on the lawn then out of control weeds or pests. Weeds tend to attract pests, so eliminating them is the first step in preventing both issues. Pulling weeds and spraying them is an effective DIY method to handle them, but the benefit of having the lawn care service do it for you as part of the maintenance schedule is thorough and consistent weed removal. They will use industrial grade weed killers that will not otherwise harm your lawn and remove any pesky remaining weeds by hand. In doing so, weeds will be reduced and you are pests will damage or spoil your newly renovated lawn.
