With Sunday, you can choose from one of three different subscription plans. All of these plans are customized to your property and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
Don't want to handle lawn care on your own? Explore using a subscription lawn care company, or reach out to one of the full-service lawn care companies in Lake Los Angeles. If you opt to do everything yourself, you could save some money up front. However, what you'll be missing is the expert advice and guidance that can help prevent expensive mistakes.
Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, provide assistance to supplement your DIY lawn care. This is usually in the form of subscription packages which contain all the chemicals and equipment you need for your lawn, depending on the time of year and your location in California. These companies can provide you with a lot of guidance with lawn care, but you will still be doing all of the manual work.
Prefer to go with a company that will take care of both the mental and physical tasks? Consider hiring a full-service company like TruGreen. Although this will likely be your most expensive option, these companies offer the most comprehensive services, and the pros will do all the hard work so you don't have to.
Lawn care companies around Lake Los Angeles can provide many different types of services, such as:
For any need, there is a Lake Los Angeles lawn care company that can fill it. We suggest getting in touch with one or two of the companies from the above list to feel confident that you have the right one 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 technician needs to be licensed through the California Department of Agriculture. If you are hiring for landscaping services like edging and mowing, check to see if a company meets all of California's landscaper licensing requirements. You can also find out if a company belongs to an organization like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Membership is not mandatory, but NALP allows landscaping professionals to collaborate and share information regarding best practices. Finally, you can read company reviews online and check their website to learn about guarantees that they offer.
Next, you'll need to figure out which companies offer the specific services that you need. Many Lake Los Angeles 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 further, you can ask companies about getting a free inspection and service quote. An inspection can happen quickly — some companies can even get a quick estimate of the size of your yard via GPS before they come out to your home. The company should then be able to provide an estimate based on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.
If you haven't worked with a lawn care company in Lake Los Angeles before (or even if you have) you may have some questions about what you ought to expect. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Choosing a trustworthy Lake Los Angeles lawn care company goes a long way towards helping you feel more confident and comfortable with the process. Any provider you choose from our list of Lake Los Angeles' best lawn care companies can explain all steps of the process and help you know what to expect.
The price of lawn care in Lake Los Angeles may change based on several factors. First is the size of your lawn. Next is the kind and number of services you need. Lastly, there is how often you want services. Generally, a subscription company is going to be cheaper than a full-service company, but using a subscription company means that you need to do the manual labor yourself. We strongly suggest speaking with at least one of the companies from our list of Lake Los Angeles' best lawn care service providers for a quote.
The amount of money that you want to spend and how much work you plan to do will both influence what type of lawn care is the best match for you. Going with a full-service lawn company in Lake Los Angeles such as TruGreen will be the most expensive, but will also require the least manual labor on your part. On the other hand, doing everything on your own will cost the least amount of money, but will require the most planning and hard work. Subscription companies are somewhere in between your other options.
Whether you or a lawn care technician are performing services, all pets should be kept inside during the process. If you are getting your products from a subscription company, they should provide pet safety information with their products. If you go with a full-service company, they will tell you when it is safe to let your pets on your lawn following treatment.
Many lawn care providers (such as Sunday Lawn Care) use products made with natural ingredients. Many companies provide lists of ingredients on their website. You can also reach out to a company directly to ask for a list.
With some services, like mowing and edging, you will see immediate results. It may be days to weeks before you start seeing results from some other services, such as seeding and weed control. The results will also depend on the weather in your part of California and the time of year.
Using a lawn services company — either full-service or subscription — will help ensure that the job is done right, and save you money down the road. When you pay for a lawn care company, you also get the benefit of professional expertise. These experts will help you determine exactly what your lawn needs, when, and how frequently. They also provide the products, and (if you hire a full-service company) the labor. Both of these things are typically backed by guarantees.
