DIY vs Professional Lawn Care - Which is Better?


When there is lawn care to be done, if you don't want to go it alone you can use either a subscription company or one of the full-service lawn care companies operating in Rancho Santa Margarita. Doing your lawn care on your own may save you money at first. However, without expert advice from a lawn care professional, you could make mistakes that prove costly in the future.

Companies like Sunday Lawn Care exist to provide assistance with DIY lawn care. These companies offer subscription packages of lawn care chemicals and equipment that are sent to you as needed. The packages are curated based on the time of year and your location in California. This takes some of the guesswork out of lawn care; however, you still have to apply everything yourself.

If you would like to be completely hands-off, a full-service company like TruGreen is going to be the best decision. This option may be the most pricy, but for good reason: they provide both custom solutions to all your lawn care problems and the people-power to take care of all the work.

Choosing a Rancho Santa Margarita Lawn Care Company

If you're using a full-service company like TruGreen, their technicians will come to your home to treat your lawn. Your company may ask that you be home the first time they visit. However, you usually will not need to be present for your lawn care technician to do treatments. The company will inform you (either in writing or electronically) which services they completed and when.

"We are committed to helping our members achieve success through education and training and increasing professionalism through certification and accreditation."

Next, you'll need to figure out which companies provide the specific services you need. Many Rancho Santa Margarita lawn care service companies can offer you both fixed plans and "a la carte" options, which allow you to pick and choose which services you want.

Frequently asked questions for lawn care companies


What is the cost of lawn care in Rancho Santa Margarita?

The price of lawn care in Rancho Santa Margarita will be based on several factors. One is your lawn's size, and another is the type of services you need. The price will also vary based on how often your lawn needs services. Subscription companies will be less expensive at first, but you will need to do the manual labor yourself. We suggest you get in touch with one or two of the companies from our list of the top lawn service providers in Rancho Santa Margarita for an estimate.

Which type of lawn care is the best fit for me: DIY, a subscription package, or a full-service company?

The amount of money that you are willing to spend and the amount of work you are willing to do will both have an effect on what type of lawn care is best for you. Choosing one of Rancho Santa Margarita'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 hand, doing everything on your own will cost the least amount of money, but will require the most hard work and planning. Subscription companies are somewhere in between the other options.

What sort of lawn care is required in different seasons in Rancho Santa Margarita?

Year-round, your lawn should receive tree and shrub care, aeration and fertilization, and weed and pest control as needed. In warmer parts of the year, you may also want to take care of soil care and seeding/overseeding. As the weather cools down, you may want to winterize your lawn. The pros of using a lawn care company in Rancho Santa Margarita include getting expert help finding what schedule works best for you and your lawn.

How can I find a Rancho Santa Margarita lawn care company that uses natural ingredients?

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

How long is it going to take for me to notice a difference in my lawn?

With some services, such as mowing and tree care, you will see immediate results. It may take a few days to a few weeks to start seeing results from some other services, such as overseeding and weed control. Certain results will also depend on the time of year and the weather in your part of California.

What happens if my lawn care servicer needs to cancel because of inclement weather?

If the weather is bad, it may alter which services your lawn needs on a certain day, and your technician may need to cancel. If this is the case, they will communicate with you to reschedule as soon as possible. Some lawn care companies in Rancho Santa Margarita also have mobile apps where you can see and change your schedule.
