How to Find a Lawn Care Professional

Start by searching online to read reviews of local lawn services. Look for companies that have proven reliable and service a stable clientele. The reviews can say a lot about the companies and will help to avoid a disorganized lawn care company. Look for a company that responds quickly to questions and booking inquiries.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to neighbors or friends to see if there’s a local lawn care company they trust and rely on. Sometimes a good reference from someone you trust can change everything.

Before Hiring a Lawn Service

While doing your research, there are certain things you should be looking for

Understand the Average Cost of Different Projects

Research prices before you decide to pass on a company or hire them. The average price of lawn mowing depends on the size of the yard but usually falls between $50 and $210 for most homeowners. Keep in mind that there is significant regional variation in costs. Special projects like aeration, dethatching, and weed and leaf removal may incur additional charges.

Get Multiple Prices

As you narrow down your options, begin contacting different lawn care companies and ask for estimates or bids tailored directly to your lawn care needs. Don’t just opt for the least expensive option; look for the company that makes you feel the most comfortable when it comes to the requirements of your yard.

Tips for Hiring the Best Lawn Service

Once you’ve settled on your top two choices, there are a few final steps to take to make sure you’ve selected the right professional lawn service for your needs.

Check Their Reputation

While reviews don’t provide the whole story, they give some insight into whether the customers are happy at the end of their service. If the company has tons of negative, detailed reviews, you can probably count on feeling unfulfilled after the service. Ask your neighbors what companies they use too. This can help you find good companies while also knowing which companies are unreliable or don’t fit within your budget.

Are They Licensed and Insured?

Although Being licensed and insured is a must-have, it is not the common standard. Some people looking for the cheapest lawn care company often miss out on this choice. Does it cost you? Yes, taking the extra step to make sure you’re dealing with a professional company that not only takes themselves seriously but you as well will cost more than your usual “side hustle” lawn care company.

How Is Their Customer Service?

Good customer service from a lawn care company seems to be hard to come by these days. It’s hard to get a quote, it’s a hassle to sign up, and it’s even harder to modify a service or get specialty jobs done. Many companies are disorganized, and you’ll spend (or waste) much time playing phone tag. In this case, we recommend looking for a company with an office manager or another employee who will always respond promptly and reasonably. Look for a lawn care company that is up to date on technology, reachable through whatever form of preferred communication and uses, and scheduling and billing software.

Do They Require Contracts?

In this industry, it’s normal to require contracts. If your lawn care company asks for this and you don’t want to sign a contract, you can see if they’ll accommodate or give you a trial period.

How Reliable Will They be?

You’d be surprised how many people have to find a new lawn care company because their last provider “just disappeared.” One week they’re mowing your lawn. The following week, they’re gone with no trace. Why is that? Sometimes, companies don’t have the operational ability to expand and collapse. Getting good information about the company before signing up is the best way to avoid unreliable companies. If the company has an updated website and social media, you may be able to do your research without reaching out over the phone.
