DIY vs Professional Lawn Care - Which is Better?


Some people may prefer handling lawn care on their own. For the times when you want a little more assistance, you can go with a subscription company, or pay one of the full-service lawn care companies in El Monte. When you decide to go it alone, you eliminate labor costs, but miss out on a lot of professional guidance. This could lead to expensive mistakes down the line.

A company like Sunday Lawn Care can help simplify the process. These kinds of companies will mail you a subscription package of lawn care chemicals and equipment. They do the work of figuring out what your lawn needs and when, based on the season and where you live in California. However, you still need to handle the manual labor.

If you would rather 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 expensive, but this is balanced by the benefits: they provide both custom solutions to all your lawn care problems and the people-power to take care of all the work.

Types of Lawn Care Services in El Monte, CA


Lawn care companies around El Monte can provide many different types of services, such as:

No matter what services you want, there is a El Monte lawn care company that fits the bill. We recommend looking into one or two of the companies listed above to find which one is the best fit.

El Monte Quick Facts

  • El Monte is part of the Hot-Dry climate zone.
  • On average, El Monte gets approximately 0.0 inches of snow a year.
  • El Monte's average high temperature of 71° F is higher than 85.4% of the United States.

Choosing a El Monte Lawn Care Company


During Treatments: If you end up choosing a subscription company, you will perform treatments yourself based on the provided instructions. If you've gone with a full-service company like TruGreen, their technicians will come to your home to perform services. Your company may ask you to be home the first time they visit. However, you generally do not need to be present for your lawn care technician to do treatments. You'll be informed by the company (either in writing or electronically) which services they completed and when.

"NALP members have access to industry-leading tools and training to keep you on the cutting edge."

The next step is to figure out which companies can perform the specific services you need. Many El Monte lawn care service companies can offer you both fixed plans and "a la carte" options, which allow you to pick and choose exactly which services you need.

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 are even able to estimate the size of your yard with GPS before they visit your home. From there, they should be able to provide an estimate based on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.

Frequently asked questions for lawn care companies


What is the fee for lawn care in El Monte?

The price of lawn care in El Monte varies based on several factors. First is the size of your lawn. Next is the number and type of services you want. Last but not least, there is the schedule on which you want services. In most cases, a subscription company is going to be 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 at least one of the companies from our list of the best lawn care service providers in El Monte to ask for a quote.

How do I pick between the different types of lawn care companies, or between hiring a company and doing it myself?

The amount of money you want to spend and the amount of work you want to do will both influence the type of lawn care that is the best fit for you. Using one of El Monte's full-service lawn care companies such as TruGreen will be the most expensive, but also will require the least manual labor on your part. On the other end of the spectrum, doing everything yourself will cost the least amount of money, but will require the most planning and hard work. Subscription companies fall in between the other options.

How frequently should I (or a company) be doing lawn care work in El Monte?

The frequency with which your El Monte lawn needs care will depend on things like the condition your lawn is in at the start of services, the time of year, and the weather in your part of California. There are some services (such as mowing) that should be done every two weeks, and other services, such as pest and weed control, can be done more infrequently. Overall, when it comes to lawn care, consistency is key.

Are there lawn care companies in El Monte that use natural ingredients?

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

What happens if there is inclement weather and my lawn care servicer has to cancel?

If there is inclement weather, it may change which services are needed on a certain day, and your provider may need to cancel. If this happens, they will reach out to you to reschedule as soon as possible. Some El Monte lawn care companies also have mobile apps where you can view and edit your schedule.
