Happy New Year! If you’re like most people, it’s especially a “happy” new year because we are no longer in the unpredictable year of 2020. We saw many changes this past year, but your home may have seen the most. Living rooms turned into classrooms, garages turned into gyms, and your pets turned into co-workers.
To keep up with the changes going on inside of your home, make some changes on the outside of your home as well, starting with your lawn! Spring will be here before you know it so now is the time to find a trusted lawn care provider. There are a few different resources you can use to help your search in finding what company is right for you and your lawn.
It can be overwhelming when starting a search for a lawn care company who is best suited for your family. Who do you trust? What should you be looking for? When it comes to “choosing a lawn care company near me” many people turn to additional resources for help and a customer referral should be at the top of your list.
Family, friends, and your neighbors can offer valuable insight that you can trust. Not only are you able to compare their lawn to yours, but you can also ask them what services they have had done. This can help give you an idea of what types of service your lawn needs before even contacting the company. You can also ask them about their customer service experience as well as their overall lawn service. If you hear of a highly recommended company from someone you trust, it’s worth checking them out.
Search The Web
When researching a specific job or subject, one of your first instincts is to check their website. Looking on their website can give you an inside look into the company. You can educate yourself on each service they offer, their mission statement, the company's story, customer testimonials, and more. Most lawn companies offer free quotes, giving you a way to receive additional information without any cost or commitment.
Their website may also offer additional information for you about other services they offer like pest control, tree and shrub care, and other lawn care services like aeration and overseeding. Look for care tips and blog posts on their website, these will come in handy for you during the season. It also shows they care about providing their customers with the information they need to have a healthy lawn.
Local vs. The Big Guys
Knowing whether a lawn care company is a local business is also something to consider. Although supporting a local business is always preferred, it is also entirely better for your lawn. The climate in Ohio alone is so different from Cincinnati to Cleveland, it can be 50 degrees and raining in Cleveland and sunny and 70 degrees in southern Ohio. Local lawn care providers know their community lawns better than any large national lawn care provider or franchised company.
TruGreen may appear at the top of your search because they advertise all across the country and spend a lot of marketing dollars that many local companies can’t compete with. They also offer a national program instead of one designed for the needs in your area. So someone in Cleveland will get the same program and products as someone in Texas which has completely different weather and soil.
When you finally contact a company to get an estimate, feel free to ask questions like how long they’ve been in business, or how many years of experience their lawn care professionals have. And try to keep your lawn care provider separate from your lawn mowing service or landscaper as many lawn maintenance servicers have their mowing staff spread the same products you can buy at the store instead of using commercial grade products applied by licensed applicators.
