DIY vs Professional Lawn Care - Which is Better?


For the most part, there are three main ways to do lawn care: doing it completely on your own, paying for a subscription company, or hiring one of the full-service lawn care companies in Castro Valley. If you elect to handle everything on your own, you could initially save some money. However, what you'll be missing is the expert guidance and advice that can help prevent expensive mistakes.

If you want to have expert guidance while still doing your own lawn care, you can use a company like Sunday Lawn Care. These companies put together subscription packages of lawn tools and chemicals, which are periodically sent to you depending on the season and where you live in California. They take care of the research and planning, although you will still be the one doing the hard work.

If your goal is to be completely hands-off, a full-service company like TruGreen is going to be the best avenue for you. This option might be the most pricy, but for good reason: they offer custom solutions to all your lawn care headaches, and they take care of all the work.

No matter what type of services you need, there is a Castro Valley lawn care company for you. We recommend looking into one or more of the companies listed above to determine which one is the best fit.

Choosing a Castro Valley Lawn Care Company


It is probably important to you to choose a lawn care services company that is reliable. If you are going to have chemicals like pesticides applied to your lawn, your technician will need to be licensed through the California Department of Agriculture. If they're going to be helping with landscaping services (such as mowing), they'll need to meet all of the landscaper licensing requirements for California. Companies might also have membership in organizations like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). NALP membership is not mandatory, but the association allows companies to collaborate and share information on best practices. To learn even more about a company, you can explore their website to see what kind of guarantees they offer, and read online reviews.

"For more than two decades, the NALP Foundation...has supported education, research, and scholarships to strengthen the future of the landscape and lawn care industry."

After you've determined the best companies in your area, you'll need to figure out which ones can perform the specific combination of services you want. Many Castro Valley lawn care companies offer both pre-set plans and "a la carte" options that allow you to make your own service package.

Once you've chosen a company or two, you'll want to ask for an inspection and quote. By using GPS technology, some companies are even able to provide you with an estimate based on how big your lawn is before ever stepping foot on your property. Your estimate will be based mainly on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.

Frequently asked questions for lawn care companies


How much should I expect to pay for lawn care in Castro Valley?

The amount you pay for lawn care in Castro Valley may vary widely based on a number of factors. First is how big your lawn is. Next is the number and type of services you need. Lastly, there is how frequently you want services. Typically, a subscription company will be cheaper than a full-service company, but you'll be responsible for taking care of the work yourself. We strongly suggest speaking with at least one of the companies from our list of the best lawn care service providers in Castro Valley for a quote.

Which type of lawn care is my best option: DIY, a subscription package, or a full-service company?

The amount of money you're willing to spend and the amount of work you plan to do will both affect what type of lawn care is best for you. Choosing one of Castro Valley's full-service lawn care companies such as TruGreen will cost the most, but also will require you to perform the least manual labor. Conversely, handling everything on your own will cost the least amount of money, but will require the most hard work and planning. Subscription companies fall in between your other options.

How often should I (or a company) be doing lawn care work in Castro Valley?

When it comes to taking care of your Castro Valley lawn, consistency is key. There are services like mowing that you'll want done every one to two weeks. Other services, like pest and weed control, can be done less often. Some things that will affect your lawn care schedule are the condition of your lawn when you first begin services, the weather in your part of California, and the time of year.

Can I find lawn care companies in Castro Valley that use natural ingredients?

There are some lawn care companies (such as Sunday Lawn Care) that use products made with natural ingredients. Many companies have a list of ingredients that they use on their website, and you can also speak with a company directly to ask for a list.

How long might it take to get noticeable results after lawn care services?

Some services — like mowing and tree care — allow you to begin seeing results immediately. With services such as fertilization and weed control, it may take days to weeks to see results. The time needed for visible results will also be dependent on the time of year and the weather in your part of California.
