To help get your lawn into shape, we've compiled a list of Westwood Lakes' top-rated lawn care service providers. Scroll down for our list, and choose the right provider for you.

For the most part, there are three main ways to do lawn care: doing everything yourself, going with a subscription company, or employing one of the full-service lawn care companies that operate in Westwood Lakes. If you decide to do everything yourself, you might save money initially. However, what you'll be missing is the expert guidance and advice that could help you prevent expensive mistakes.
Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, can help you with your DIY lawn care. Generally this is in the form of subscription packages that provide you with all the necessary chemicals and equipment for your lawn, based on your location in Florida and the time of year. These companies offer a lot of guidance with lawn care, but you will still be doing all of the manual work.
Prefer someone who will manage both the mental and physical tasks? Consider hiring a full-service company like TruGreen. While this will likely be your most expensive option, you will get the most comprehensive services, and the pros will handle the hard work so you don't have to.
The lawn care companies in Westwood Lakes offer a variety of services, including:
No matter your needs, there is a Westwood Lakes lawn care company that is able to meet them. We suggest reaching out to one or two of the companies on the above list to find just the right one for you.
During Treatments: If you end up choosing a subscription company, you will be the one doing the treatments based on the instructions provided by the company. If you're using a full-service company like TruGreen, they will come to your home to do any requested lawn care. Your company might ask that you be home the first time they come to your house. However, you generally do not need to be at home for lawn care treatment to take place. You'll be informed by the company (either in writing or electronically) what treatments were done and when.
Next, you'll want to figure out which companies around the Westwood Lakes area have the specific services you need. Companies may let you pick between both plans and "a la carte" options which allow you to pick and choose from a list of services.
After you've determined which companies to call, you can ask them for a free inspection and estimate. Via GPS technology, some companies can estimate your property size and provide a quote over the phone. The cost will be based mainly on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.
When you employ a Westwood Lakes lawn care company, there are things you can expect before, during, and after treatments. Some of those things are:
Selecting a trustworthy Westwood Lakes lawn care company goes a long way towards helping you feel more confident and knowledgeable about the process. Any provider from our list of the best lawn care companies in Westwood Lakes can explain all steps of the process and ensure that you know exactly what to expect.
The cost of lawn care in Westwood Lakes varies based on several factors. First is how big your lawn is. Next is the kind and number of services you want. Last but not least, there is the schedule on which you want services. Typically, a subscription company is going to be less expensive than a full-service company, but you'll be responsible for taking care of the work yourself. We strongly suggest speaking with at least one of the companies from our list of Westwood Lakes' best lawn care service providers to ask for a quote.
The plan that fits best for you will be based on what you think of the trade-off between money and work. If you handle everything on your own, you won't have to pay for labor, but this option will necessitate the most work from you. If you hire one of Westwood Lakes' full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they take care of the labor and logistics, but you will need to invest more money up front. Subscription companies are generally somewhere in between.
Regardless of whether you or a lawn care technician are working on your lawn, your pets should stay inside during the entire process. A subscription company should list pet safety information on their products. Should you hire a full-service company, they will let you know when it is safe for pets to be on your lawn following treatment.
Some services — like tree care and mowing — allow you to see results immediately. With services like weed control and seeding, you may need to wait a few days to a few weeks to see results. The time between services and results will also be based on the time of year and the weather in your part of Florida.
If your Westwood Lakes lawn care technician needs to cancel due to weather, they will be in touch with you as soon as possible to reschedule. Some companies even have mobile apps where you can view and change your schedule as well.
Utilizing a lawn services company — either full-service or subscription — will help guarantee a job well done, and save you money down the road. When you utilize a lawn care company, you also get the benefit of professional expertise. These experts can help you decide exactly what your lawn needs, when, and how frequently. Additionally, they provide the products, and (if you hire a full-service company) the labor. Both of these things are usually backed by guarantees.
