Your lawn has a large effect on the appearance of your home, but doing the upkeep on it takes a lot of energy and time. There's a chance you may feel overwhelmed by how much work your Benicia lawn needs, or you might be concerned about how much money and time it will require.
To help get your lawn in its best shape ever, we've put together a list of Benicia's top lawn care service providers. Read below to discover our list and choose the right provider for your lawn.
TruGreen, founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn, now operates in 48 U.S. states. The company is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. Their variety of pre-set and flexible plans can be purchased online. All TruGreen 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. When you sign up with Sunday, you will choose from one of three different subscription plans, all of which are customized to your individual lawn and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
Don't want to handle lawn care all on your own? Explore using a subscription lawn care company, or hire one of the full-service lawn care companies in Benicia. Tackling lawn care on your own may be less expensive at first. However, without expert advice from a lawn care professional, you could make mistakes that wind up being costly in the future.
If you want to remove some of the guesswork from lawn care, you can use a company like Sunday Lawn Care. These companies put together subscription packages of lawn tools and chemicals, which are shipped to you regularly based on the time of year and where you live in California. They will take care of the research and planning for you, although you still have to do the manual labor.
If you would rather be completely hands-off, a full-service company like TruGreen is going to be your best bet. This option may be the most expensive, but this is balanced by the benefits: they provide both custom solutions to all your lawn care headaches and the people-power to take care of all the work.
There are many services for which you might use a lawn care company in Benicia, such as:
For any need, there is a Benicia lawn care company that can fill it. It is a smart idea to get in touch with one or two of the companies from our above list to make sure you get the right one for you.
During Treatments: If you've opted for a subscription company, you will handle all treatments yourself based on the instructions provided by the company. If you're using a full-service company like TruGreen, a lawn care professional will come to your home to treat your lawn. Your company may ask you to be home the first time they come out. However, you generally do not need to be home for lawn care treatment. The company will inform you (either electronically or in writing) what services they performed and when.
Next you will want to figure out which companies offer the specific services that you need. Many Benicia lawn care service companies offer both fixed plans and "a la carte" options, which let you pick and choose only those services that you want.
After whittling down your list even more, you can begin asking companies about getting a free inspection and quote for services. An inspection can happen quickly — some companies can even take a fast estimate of the size of your yard via GPS before they come out to your home. They can then give you an estimate based on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
If you haven't hired a Benicia lawn care company before (or even if you have) you might wonder what to expect. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Picking the best Benicia lawn care company can help you be confident and in-the-know regarding all of the work that needs to be done. It is a good idea to contact one of the companies from our list of the best lawn care providers in Benicia to learn about their services and decide if they are right for you.
The price of lawn care in Benicia will depend on a handful of factors. One is how big your lawn is, and another is the type and number of services that you want. The price will also change based on how frequently your lawn needs servicing. Subscription companies will cost less initially, but you will have to do all of the manual work yourself. We recommend that you contact a couple of the companies on our list of the top lawn service providers in Benicia to get an estimate.
The amount of money you're willing to spend and the amount of work you are willing to do will both have an effect on the type of lawn care that is the best fit for you. Going with one of Benicia's full-service lawn care companies such as TruGreen will cost the most money, but also will require the least manual labor on your part. On the other end of the spectrum, doing everything yourself will be the least expensive, but will necessitate the most planning and hard work. Subscription companies are somewhere in between your other options.
Pets should remain in the house during lawn treatments, whether you've hired someone or are doing it yourself. If a full-service company does the application, they will tell you when it is safe for your pets to be on your lawn again. If you are getting products from a subscription company, the company should provide this information with all of their products.
Many lawn care providers list their ingredients on their website. Some (such as Sunday Lawn Care) state that they use natural ingredients in their products. If this information is not provided on a company's website, you can get in touch with them and ask.
Some services — like mowing and tree care — allow you to begin seeing results as soon as they are performed. With services like overseeding and seeding, it may take days to weeks to see results. The time between services and results will also depend on the weather in your part of California and the time of year.
