TruGreen, founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn, now operates in 48 U.S. states. The company is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. They have a large variety of pre-set and flexible plans that 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 uses each customer's individual soil and climate data to deliver "custom lawn nutrients, herbicides, pest control, grass seed, bare spot repair, pet spot solutions, garden fertilizer, flower bulbs, and wildflower seeds" at the appropriate times throughout the year. With Sunday, you can choose from one of their three subscription plans. All of these plans are customized to your property and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
When there is lawn care to be done, if you don't want to do everything yourself you can use either a subscription company or one of Citrus Heights' full-service lawn care companies. While tackling the project by yourself may seem like the cheapest option, it leaves the possibility of expensive mistakes open. You also will not have the expert guidance of a lawn care professional to help you.
A company like Sunday Lawn Care can help remove some of the guesswork from the process. These companies will mail you a subscription package of lawn care equipment and chemicals. They decide what your lawn needs and when, based on your location in California and the time of year. However, you will still need to make time to do the manual labor.
Would you rather have someone else handle everything? A full-service company like TruGreen may be best for you. A full-service lawn care company may be the most expensive option, but full-service companies take care of not just the decision-making but also the manual labor.
There are a number of services for which you might employ a lawn care company in Citrus Heights, such as:
There is a lawn care company for every need and budget in Citrus Heights. It is recommended that you contact one or two from our list above to determine the one that will be best for you.
You should choose a lawn care services company that you can trust. If the technician is going to apply chemicals like pesticides around your property, they must be licensed through the California Department of Agriculture. If you need them to perform landscaping services (such as edging), they'll have to meet all of California's landscaper licensing requirements. Some companies are also members of organizations like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Membership in NALP is generally not a licensing requirement, but the association allows companies to collaborate and share information on best practices. Finally, you can read through a company's website to find out what kind of guarantees they offer, and read online reviews.
After you've found the best companies near you, you'll need to determine which ones offer the specific combination of services that you need. Many lawn care companies in Citrus Heights offer both fixed plans and "a la carte" options that let you make your own service package.
After narrowing down your list even more, you can begin asking companies about free inspections and getting a quote for services. You often won't need to wait long for an inspection — some companies can even get a quick estimate of the size of your yard with GPS before visiting your home. The company should then be able to give you an estimate based on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
When you work with a Citrus Heights lawn care company, there are certain things you can expect before, during, and after services. Some of these are:
Picking a reliable Citrus Heights lawn care company can help you feel much more confident and comfortable with the process. All of the providers from our list of Citrus Heights' best lawn care companies can explain all steps of the process and make sure that you know exactly what to expect.
The amount you will pay for lawn care in Citrus Heights will be based on certain factors. One is how big your lawn is, and another is the type and number of services that you want. The price will also depend on how frequently your lawn needs services. Subscription companies will cost less at first, but you will need to do the manual labor yourself. It is strongly suggested that you get in touch with a couple of the companies from our list of the top lawn service providers in Citrus Heights to obtain an estimate.
The amount of money that you are willing to spend and the amount of work you plan to do will both affect what type of lawn care is the best fit for you. Going with one of Citrus Heights' full-service lawn care companies such as TruGreen will cost the most, but also will require the least work from you. On the other hand, handling everything on your own will cost the least amount of money, but will necessitate the most planning and hard work. Subscription companies fall in between your other options.
In the warmer parts of the year, you will want to tackle overseeding, seeding, and soil care. During cooler weather, you may decide to think about winterization. Throughout the year, you want to think about tree and shrub care, aeration and fertilization, and weed and pest control as needed. One of the pros of hiring a lawn care company in Citrus Heights is that they can help you choose the schedule that works best for you and your lawn.
Some services — like mowing and tree care — allow you to begin seeing results as soon as they are performed. With services like seeding and overseeding, you may be waiting days or weeks to see results. The time needed for visible results will also be based on the weather in your part of California and the time of year.
Utilizing a lawn services company — either full-service or subscription — will help make sure the job is done correctly, and save you money down the road. When you pay for a lawn care company, you also benefit from professional expertise. These experts can help you determine exactly what your lawn needs, when, and how often. They also provide the products, and (if you hire a full-service company) the labor, both of which are usually backed by guarantees.
