Find Out How To Select a Lawn Care Maintenance Provider

There are a host of reasons why it makes sense to hire a lawn care service provider for regular maintenance of your yard. Their expertise, and the time and effort you’re saved from doing the work yourself are chief among the reasons.

But are all lawn care service providers the same?

In this article, we’ll share advice for what to look for when selecting a lawn care provider.

  • What’s their reputation?
    By going online to sites like Yelp, a company’s reputation among previous and existing customers is fairly easy to find. While this approach is not exhaustive, it will be a good way for you to whittle down the list of potential providers.
  • Do they require contracts?
    Be wary of lawn care providers who merely ask you a lot of “yes” or “no” questions about your lawn over the phone, and base their bids for services merely on your conversation without seeing your lawn in person.

According to advice from the Better Business Bureau, a common complaint about lawn service providers is homeowners receiving bills for work that’s never been done.

That’s the major reason you need a contract for your lawn work. All work that’s to be done should be outlined and agreed upon before the first grass blade has been cut.

  • Is the provider licensed and insured?
    If your lawn care provider doesn’t have the proper training and licensing in place, it could cost you – a lot.

For example, the process for obtaining a license to apply pesticides is an arduous one – and it needs to be. If pesticides aren’t handled and dispersed properly, the consequences could be serious.

Insurance is huge issue because, if they don’t have it and one of their employees is injured on your property, you will most likely be held liable for any injuries.

  • Do they belong to professional organizations?
    Becoming and remaining a member in a professional lawn care or landscaping organization is a clear signal that the company has made a commitment to providing good lawn care services as well as continuing to learn new and innovative techniques.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
