Why Hire a Lawn Care Service?

lawn care servicesOne of the big questions you may be asking yourself when trying to decide whether or not to hire a lawn care service is “Why should I hire someone to do this for me, when it’s so easy to do myself?” So, allow us to shed some light on why it can be much more beneficial, and in some cases even more cost effective, to hire a lawn care service as opposed to DIY.

  1. Lawn care is not easy – Yes, there are many tasks of lawn care that are easy – mowing, pulling weeds, raking leaves, etc. However, maintaining a healthy lawn is not a simple task as it requires proper fertilization, weed prevention and care tailored to the needs of your grass. There are so many elements involved, like timing, application, chemical mixture and more, and these elements need to be used appropriately in order to get the maximum results in your yard. This is where the expertise of a lawn care service comes in handy.
  2. Fertilization – Many homeowners take on the task of fertilization themselves, but finding the right formula for your yard can be an overwhelming task. Stores stock the shelves with a myriad of options when it comes to fertilizer, weed control and insect control, and each have their own product label. These product labels are the key to knowing whether or not the product works well with your yard and as well as provides the mixing instructions. If you don’t follow these recommendations, you could end up doing more harm to your yard than good.
  3. Cost Analysis РOn average, buying your own fertilizer saves you about 10% to 15%, but when you take into consideration your time investment as well as weed control, it actually comes out cheaper to hire a lawn service in some occasions.
  4. Peace of Mind – Life is full of responsibilities, so isn’t it nice to know that one of those things is being taken care of by someone else? Instead of spending weekends worrying about yard work, you have the freedom to do what you please.
