DIY vs Professional Lawn Care - Which is Better?


When you need to do lawn care, if you don't want to go it alone you can choose either a subscription company or one of Washington's full-service lawn care companies. If you go the DIY route, you might save money initially. However, you will not have expert advice and guidance that could help prevent expensive mistakes.

Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, provide assistance to supplement your DIY lawn care. This is generally in the form of subscription packages which will deliver all the necessary chemicals and equipment for your lawn, depending on the time of year and your location in District of Columbia. These companies offer a good deal of guidance with lawn care, but you still have to do all the labor yourself.

Prefer to go with a company that will take care of both the mental and physical parts of the job? Consider hiring a full-service company like TruGreen. While this will likely be your most expensive option, companies like this can offer the most comprehensive range of services, and the pros will do all the hard work so you don't have to.

Types of Lawn Care Services in Washington, DC


There are a variety of different services that the lawn care companies around Washington can provide, including:

No matter what type of services you are looking to hire for, there is a Washington lawn care company for the job. We recommend looking into one or two of the companies on our list above to find which one is the best fit.

Washington Quick Facts

  • Washington gets about 11.2 inches of snow every year.
  • Washington receives more sunlight than around 60.6% of the U.S.
  • The average high in Washington is approximately 63° F.
  • Washington is part of the Mixed-Humid climate zone.
  • In District of Columbia, the average lot size is around 3,500 square feet.

Choosing a Washington Lawn Care Company


When it comes to choosing a company, you first should verify that the one you're choosing is reliable. If a technician will be applying chemicals like pesticides to your lawn, they will need to be licensed through the District of Columbia Department of Agriculture. If they are going to be doing landscaping services, such as mowing or tree care, you can confirm that they meet all of the landscaper licensing requirements for District of Columbia. Once you've verified that a company is licensed, you can look and see if they are a member of an organization such as the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), an optional association that lets its members collaborate and provides education about best practices in the industry. You can also read reviews online and explore the company's website to see what kind of guarantees they offer.

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

Once you've decided on the best companies in your area, you'll need to figure out which ones can perform the specific combination of services you need. Many Washington lawn care companies offer both pre-set plans and "a la carte" options that give you the opportunity to make your own lawn care package.

Once you've figured out which companies might be right for you, you can see about getting a free inspection and estimate. Using GPS technology, some companies are able to estimate how big your lawn is and provide a quote over the phone. The total price will depend mainly on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.

Frequently asked questions for lawn care companies


What is the cost of lawn care in Washington?

The amount you will pay for lawn care in Washington will depend on a handful of factors. One is your lawn's size, and another is the type and number of services that you want. The price will also vary based on how frequently your lawn needs services. Subscription companies will cost less initially, but you will have to do the manual labor yourself. It is strongly suggested that you reach out to one or two of the companies on our list of Washington's top lawn service providers to get an estimate.

How can I pick between all of the various types of lawn care companies? How do I choose between using a company and doing it myself?

The amount of money you're willing to spend and how much work you plan 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 Washington such as TruGreen will cost the most money, but also will require the least work from you. Conversely, handling everything on your own will cost the least amount of money, but will require the most hard work and planning. Subscription companies fall in between your other options.

How often should I (or a company) be working on my lawn in Washington?

When it comes to caring for your Washington lawn, consistency is key. Some services, like mowing, you'll want to do every one or two weeks. Some services — like pest and weed control — can be done less frequently. Some things that will affect your lawn care schedule are the weather in your part of District of Columbia, the time of year, and the condition of your lawn when you first begin services.

How can I keep lawn care safe around my pets?

Pets should be kept indoors during lawn treatments, whether you or professionals are doing the application. If you hire a full-service company, they will tell you when you can allow your pets to be on your lawn again. If you are getting products from a subscription company, they should provide this information with all of their products.

How long might it take for me to notice an improvement in my lawn?

Some services — like mowing and tree care — allow you to see results right away. With services such as overseeding and seeding, it may take days to weeks to see results. The time between services and results will also depend on the weather in your part of District of Columbia and the time of year.

Why would I hire a Washington lawn care services company instead of just paying a neighbor to take care of my lawn?

Going with 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 use a lawn care company, you also benefit from professional expertise. These experts can help you decide exactly what your lawn needs, when, and how frequently. Additionally, they provide the products, and (in the case of full-service companies) the labor. Both of these things are normally backed by a guarantee.
