    You have many different options when it comes to your lawn’s care. Many homeowners find success in the DIY lifestyle, while Costs_Of_Lawn_Care.jpgothers prefer the simple peace of mind of a professional service. While everyone has their preference, they have one question that they will ask: how much with it cost? To help you get the most green for your green, here is a quick guide to the costs that go into lawn care.

    Leaf removal:

    Average Cost: $350/year

    The most tedious chore of fall is most often raking leaves. There may be some lawn care companies that will remove the leaves for you in the fall. This can save you a lot of time and frustration especially in the autumn season.


    Average Price: $30-$45/bag

    Mulch is an essential part of your lawn’s beautification and maintenance. The price does vary based on the quality of the mulch. There may also be a delivery fee if you have the mulch delivered to your home.


    Average Price: $200-$300/ year

    Fertilization can sometimes be tricky- fertilizing a few times a year can help your lawn grow healthy, but too much can cause some serious damage. Luckily, this is commonly included in lawn care packages. Professionals will be able to provide you lawn with the precise balance of fertilizer. The price varies based on the square footage of your lawn.

    Lawn mowing:

    Average Price: $50/week

    When you are looking at lawn care packages, look into seeing if it includes fertilizing, trimming, and edging services. This service is usually offered on a weekly basis.


    Average Price: $100-$199/season

    Aeration is usually performed on lawns in either the spring or fall. Aerating your lawn relieves compressed soil and allows for stronger root growth. This also creates pockets to deliver food and water directly to roots, while dethatching lawns in a safe manner. Learn more about lawn aeration on our website
