Hiring a lawn care service can be a great way to remove both stress and unnecessary work from your life while simultaneously guaranteeing that you can take pride in the look of your property. However, many people may not be getting the most from their service because they may not be aware of all the service options available to them.
In order to avoid that mistake and guarantee that your lawn receives the care it deserves, you have to ask the right questions. Below, you'll find a guide to some of those questions, guaranteeing that you can be content with your service, your lawn, and the level of care you take in maintaining both.
Ask About Weather Contingencies
In order to cut your yard and otherwise maintain your lawn, your lawn care service needs to get cooperation from the weather. Unfortunately, that may not always be possible, and you may be looking at delays in scheduled services when the skies open up and stubbornly refuse to cooperate.
Make sure you discuss the bad weather plan with your lawn service. Not only will this give you a degree of comfort in knowing that your yard will continue to be properly cared for, but it should also guarantee that you develop an honest dialogue with your service that allows each of you to have reasonable expectations of the other.
Ask About Seasonal Services
Lawn care isn't just about cutting grass and trimming hedges. Throughout the year, there are several other tasks that your lawn care service will likely be able to complete in order to guarantee that your property doesn't get run down or depressed by the changing of the seasons.
Many lawn care services can handle leaf bagging and removal in fall. They may also be able to work on tree trimming, pruning, or even flower planting in spring. A year-round relationship will maximize your lawn care value and your outside beautification.
Ask About Referral Discounts
Many lawn care services depend on client referrals in order to stay in business, and they may be willing to incentivize those referrals. If you're happy enough with your service to suggest the company to your friends and family, they may be willing and able to offer discounts in exchange for those referrals. Working out this kind of mutually beneficial relationship is a great way to build a strong partnership that lends itself to a thriving lawn for years to come.Share

When my husband and I bought our house years ago, we thought it would be our "starter" home and we would move in a few years. We soon had two children, and we then decided against moving since we live in a great school district and we love our neighbors. However, I was growing very tired of the appearance of our home. We painted it a different color, and it still seemed like the "same old house" that we were tired of. We finally deciding that maybe good landscaping would "do the trick" and make our home more enjoyable to use again. We were right, and I now love our home! I now love spending time in our yard and just enjoying the scenery. I have such a passion for landscaping now I decided to create a blog about it. I plan to share many landscaping tips, so come back!
