Having a well-kept lawn improves both the appearance and value of your house, but good lawn upkeep takes a lot of hard work. You might be tired of doing all the upkeep on the lawn of your Thousand Oaks home yourself, or you may not be seeing the desired results.
To help get your lawn in its best shape ever, we've compiled a list of the top-rated lawn care service providers in Thousand Oaks. Read below to discover our list and choose the right provider for your lawn.
TruGreen, founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn, now operates in 48 U.S. states. The company is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. The company has a 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. Customers can choose from one of their three subscription plans, all of which are customized to your individual lawn 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 employ the services of either a subscription company or one of the full-service lawn care companies operating in Thousand Oaks. If you go the DIY route, you may save money initially. However, what you'll be missing is the expert advice and guidance that might help avoid costly mistakes.
Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, offer assistance with DIY lawn care. Generally this is in the form of subscription packages that provide all the chemicals and equipment you need for your lawn, depending on your location in California and the time of year. These companies offer a good deal of guidance with lawn care, but you will still be doing all of the manual work.
Prefer to have someone else handle everything? A full-service company like TruGreen might be the best fit for you. A full-service lawn care company might be the most expensive option, but these companies handle not just the decision-making but also the manual labor.
The lawn care companies in Thousand Oaks can provide many different services, such as:
For any kind of need, there is a lawn care company in Thousand Oaks that can fill it. We suggest getting in touch with one or two of the companies from the list above to feel confident that you have the right one for you.
You want 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 tree and shrub care), 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. Last but not least, you can browse a company's website to find out what kind of guarantees they offer, and read online reviews.
Once you've discovered the best companies near you, you'll need to figure out which ones can perform the specific combination of services you need. Many lawn care companies in Thousand Oaks offer both pre-set plans and "a la carte" options that allow you to make your own service package.
Next, you'll want to get an inspection and quote. Even before coming out to your property, some companies are able to provide an estimate with the help of GPS technology. This estimate will be determined by the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
There are a number of things a homeowner in Thousand Oaks should keep in mind before, during, and after lawn care services. Some of those things are:
By choosing a provider from our list of the best lawn care companies in Thousand Oaks, you know that you're in good hands. Your Thousand Oaks lawn care technician can clarify all expectations and keep you well-informed throughout the process.
The amount you pay for lawn care in Thousand Oaks varies based on several factors. First is how big your lawn is. Next is the number and type of services you need. Finally, there is the schedule on which you want services. Generally, a subscription company is cheaper than a full-service company, but you will have to do the work yourself. We strongly suggest speaking with one or two of the companies from our list of Thousand Oaks' best lawn care service providers to get a quote.
The amount of money that you are willing to spend and the amount of work you want to do will both have an effect on what type of lawn care is the best fit for you. Going with a full-service lawn company in Thousand Oaks such as TruGreen will cost the most money, but also will require the least work from you. On the other hand, handling everything on your own will cost the least, but will necessitate the most hard work and planning. Subscription companies fall in between the other options.
Consistency is key when it comes to taking care of your Thousand Oaks lawn. Certain services (such as mowing) you'll want to do every one to two weeks. Services like pest and weed control can be done less often. Some things that will affect your lawn care schedule are the weather in your part of California, the condition of your lawn when you first begin services, and the time of year.
There are certain lawn care providers (such as Sunday Lawn Care) that use products made with natural ingredients. Many companies list their ingredients on their website, and you can also reach out to a company directly to ask about the ingredients they use.
Some services — such as tree care and mowing — allow you to notice the results immediately. With services such as overseeding and seeding, you may be waiting days or weeks to see results. The time needed for visible results will also be based on the time of year and the weather in your part of California.
If your Thousand Oaks lawn care servicer needs to cancel due to weather, they will reach out to you as soon as possible to reschedule. There are even some companies that have mobile apps where you are able to see and adjust your schedule as well.
