Your lawn contributes a lot to the appearance of your home, but taking care of it can take a lot of time and effort. Temperatures in Colorado Springs can dip lower than in 62% of the U.S., which might mean that you need to take extra precautions for your lawn.
Luckily, our list below will help you with all your lawn care questions. Scroll down to learn about the top-rated lawn care service providers in the Colorado Springs area.
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 delivers "custom lawn nutrients, herbicides, pest control, grass seed, bare spot repair, pet spot solutions, garden fertilizer, flower bulbs, and wildflower seeds" to your door at various times throughout the year, based on climate and soil data for your property. When you sign up with Sunday, you will 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 it comes to lawn care, if you don't want to handle everything on your own you can go with either a subscription company or one of the full-service lawn care companies operating in Colorado Springs. While doing everything yourself may seem like the cheapest option, it leaves you open to expensive mistakes. You also will have to take care of your lawn without the expert guidance of a lawn care professional.
A company like Sunday Lawn Care can help remove some of the guesswork from the process. Companies like this will send you a subscription package of lawn care equipment and chemicals. They do the work of figuring out what your lawn needs and when, depending on your location in Colorado and the time of year. However, you will still be the one doing the manual labor.
Would you rather have someone else take care of everything? A full-service company like TruGreen may be best for you. A full-service lawn care company may be the priciest option, but full-service companies handle not only the decision-making but also the manual labor.
Your local Colorado Springs lawn care companies offer a variety of services, including:
No matter the need, there is a lawn care company in Colorado Springs that can fill it. We strongly suggest getting in touch with at least one of the companies from our list above to make sure you get the right one for you.
When it comes to choosing a company, you first should verify that the one you're choosing is reliable. If a technician will need to apply chemicals like pesticides to your lawn, they'll have to be licensed through the Colorado Department of Agriculture. If they are going to be doing landscaping services, such as mowing or edging, you can check if they meet all of the landscaper licensing requirements for Colorado. Once you've verified that a company is licensed, you can check to see if they are a part of an organization such as the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), an optional association that encourages members to collaborate and provides education regarding best practices in the industry. You can also look up reviews online and browse the company's website to see what kind of guarantees they offer.
Next, you'll want to discover which companies in Colorado Springs can provide the specific services you need. A company may have both plans and "a la carte" options which enable you to pick and choose specific services.
After whittling down your list even more, you can ask companies about free inspections and getting a quote for services. Inspections can happen relatively quickly — some companies can even take a fast estimate of the size of your yard using GPS before they come out to your home. The company should then be able to provide an estimate based on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
When you work with a Colorado Springs lawn care company, there are things you can expect before, during, and after services. Some of those things are:
Selecting the right Colorado Springs lawn care company can help you be confident and knowledgeable when it comes to all of the work to be done. We suggest getting in touch with one of the companies on our list of Colorado Springs's best lawn care providers to learn about their services and decide if they are right for you.
The price of lawn care in Colorado Springs will be based on several factors. One is how large your lawn is, and another is the type and number of services that you need. The price will also change based on how frequently your lawn needs servicing. Subscription companies will be cheaper up front, but you will need to do all of the manual work yourself. It is strongly suggested that you get in touch with one or two of the companies on our list of the top lawn service providers in Colorado Springs to get an estimate.
The best plan for you will be dependent on what you think of the trade-off between work and money. If you decide to do everything yourself, you won't have to pay for labor, but this option will necessitate the most work from you. If you hire one of Colorado Springs's full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they will handle all the labor and logistics, but you will pay more money. Subscription companies are somewhere in the middle.
In the warmer months, you will want to make sure you do soil care, overseeding, and seeding. When it's cooler outside, you might need to think about winterization, as well as leaf and snow removal as needed. Year-round, you will want to handle tree and shrub care, weed and pest control, and aeration and fertilization as needed. The upsides of going with a Colorado Springs lawn care company include helping you choose the schedule that makes the most sense for you and your lawn.
The frequency with which your lawn in Colorado Springs needs care will be based on things like the weather in your part of Colorado, the condition your lawn is in at the start of services, and the time of year. Certain services, like mowing, should be done every week or two, and other services (like pest and weed control) can be done less often. As a general rule, consistency is key when it comes to lawn care.
If inclement weather is expected, it may have an effect on which services are appropriate for a certain day, and your company may need to cancel. If this happens, they will reach out to you as soon as possible to reschedule. Some lawn care companies in Colorado Springs also have mobile apps where you can see and adjust your schedule.
