You may dream of one day having a lush, healthy lawn, but the work required to reach that dream may be off-putting. You may have already tried taking care of the lawn of your Mobile home by yourself, and been unhappy with the results.
To help get your lawn in its best shape ever, we've assembled a list of Mobile's top-rated lawn care service providers. Read below to find our list and to choose the right provider for you.
TruGreen, founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn, services 48 states in the U.S. and is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. The company has a variety of pre-set and flexible plans that can be purchased online. All of the company's services are performed by TruExpert℠ Certified Specialists, and their full programs are backed by their TruGreen Guarantee®.
Sunday Lawn Care delivers "custom lawn nutrients, herbicides, pest control, grass seed, bare spot repair, pet spot solutions, garden fertilizer, flower bulbs, and wildflower seeds" to your door at various times throughout the year, based on climate and soil data for your property. Sunday customers are able to choose from one of their three subscription plans. All of these plans are customized for your lawn and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
When there is lawn care to be done, if you don't want to go it alone you can choose either a subscription company or one of the full-service lawn care companies operating in Mobile. While doing everything yourself may seem like the cheapest option, it leaves the possibility of expensive mistakes open. You also will be working without expert guidance from a lawn care professional.
If you want to have expert guidance while still doing your own lawn care, you may like a company like Sunday Lawn Care. These companies offer subscription packages of lawn tools and chemicals, which are periodically sent to you based on the season and where you live in Alabama. The company takes care of the research and planning for you, although you still have to do the manual labor.
Rather have someone else taking care of everything? A full-service company like TruGreen might be the best fit for you. A full-service lawn care company might be the most expensive option, but full-service companies take care of not just the decision-making but also the manual labor.
Your local Mobile lawn care companies can perform many different types of services, such as:
There is a Mobile lawn care company for every need and budget. We recommend contacting one or two from the above list to discover the one that is best for you.
When you're ready to hire a lawn care services company, you will want to ensure that they are reliable. Before they apply chemicals like pesticides to your lawn, a lawn care professional needs to be licensed through the Alabama Department of Agriculture. If you are hiring for landscaping services such as mowing and edging, you can look and see if a company meets all of Alabama's landscaper licensing requirements. You can also find out if a company belongs to an organization like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Lawn care professionals are not required to be members, but NALP lets landscaping professionals collaborate and share information about best practices. You can also look up company reviews and learn about their guarantees on their website.
After you've determined the best companies in your area, you'll need to determine which ones can perform the specific combination of services you need. Many lawn care companies in Mobile offer both pre-set plans and "a la carte" options where you can make your own service package.
Next, you'll want to get an inspection and quote. Even before coming out to your property, some companies can give you an estimate by using GPS technology. This estimate will be based largely on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
If you haven't hired a lawn care company in Mobile before (or even if you have) you may have some questions about what you ought to expect. The following are some things to keep in mind:
When you choose a provider from our list of the best lawn care companies in Mobile, you know that you're in the hands of experts. Your Mobile lawn care technician will make sure all expectations are clear and keep you in the know throughout the process.
The cost of lawn care in Mobile may vary widely based on a number of factors. First is your lawn size. Next is the number and kind of services you want. Finally, there is the schedule on which you want services. Generally, a subscription company is less expensive than a full-service company, but you'll be responsible for taking care of the work yourself. It is a smart idea to get in touch with one or more of the companies from our list of Mobile's best lawn care service providers to get a quote.
Your best fit will depend on how you view the trade-off between work and money. If you handle everything yourself, you won't need to pay for labor, but this option requires the most work on your part. If you employ a full-service lawn care company in Mobile (such as TruGreen), they will handle the labor and logistics, but you will need to invest more money up front. Subscription companies fall somewhere in between.
No matter if you or a lawn care technician are working on your lawn, all pets should be kept inside during the entire process. A subscription company should list pet safety information on their products. Should you hire a full-service company, they will let you know when it is safe for pets to be on your lawn after treatment.
Many lawn care companies have a list of ingredients on their website. Some (such as Sunday Lawn Care) use products containing natural ingredients. If you cannot find this information on a company's website, you can reach out to them directly and ask.
Some services — such as mowing and edging — allow you to see results as soon as they are performed. With services like seeding and fertilization, it could take up to a few weeks to see results. The time needed for visible results will also depend on the weather in your part of Alabama and the time of year.
