We all want the best looking lawn, but we don't want to pay an arm and a leg to get it. That's why we'll be looking at some lawn care Columbus pricing tricks that some of our competitors use, and how Weed Pro can deliver you not only the best looking results, but also allow you to get the most for your money.
The Difference Between Treatments and Applications
When comparing Weed Pro's Lawn Care Programs and Services with other companies in the Columbus market, the word "treatment" and "application" is used throughout. It's important that you know the difference between the two when comparing your services.
Lawn care treatments are individual products that perform a specific job. A Crabgrass Pre-Emergent Treatment controls only crabgrass, and does not contain fertilizer. While lawn care applications can be (and most likely are) a group of treatments. Why does this matter? Well let's compare the Weed Pro Program, with a "national brand's" program in Columbus.
|Weed Pro's Program||National Brand's Program|
|- 6 Fertilizer Treatments||- 6 Fertilizer Applications with|
|- Crabgrass Preventer Treatment||- Crabgrass Preventer|
|- Grub Control Treatment||- Grub Preventer|
|- 6 Weed Control Treatments||- Weed Control|
|- Surface Insect Control Treatment|
|- Micro-Nutrient Treatment|
You'll notice that with the Weed Pro Program, there seems to be a lot more in there program than the National Brand's Program. It looks like this, well, because there is! However in the pricing, you'll notice both companies advertising a "per application price."
Get More For Your Money by Getting More Treatments!
So what's the moral of the story here? Yes, most Columbus Lawn Care Companies advertise by application price. However, make sure you know what treatments are in each application. For example, Weed Pro puts weed control in every application. The national guys DO NOT. Additionally, Weed Pro offers a Surface Insect Control Treatment within our Summer application that the National Brands do not.
How Can You Compare Apples to Apples?
That's fine if you want to compare lawn care companies in Columbus by price per application. However, please request a list of the treatments in each application. After doing so, you'll find out that good price you'll see from the National guys, isn't such a great value for you - or your lawn.
