DIY vs Professional Lawn Care - Which is Better?


Don't have the time or experience to tackle lawn care by yourself? Consider signing up with a subscription lawn care company, or get in touch with one of the full-service lawn care companies in Athens. While handling everything on your own may seem like the least expensive option, this leaves the possibility of expensive mistakes open. You also forgo the expert guidance of your local lawn care professionals.

Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, can help you with your DIY lawn care. 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 Georgia and the time of year. These companies provide a lot of guidance with lawn care, but you will still be doing all of the manual work.

Prefer to go with a company that will handle both the mental and physical tasks? Consider hiring a full-service company like TruGreen. Although this will likely be the priciest option, companies like this can offer the most comprehensive services, and the pros will do all the hard work so you don't have to.

Types of Lawn Care Services in Athens, GA

No matter your needs, there is a lawn care company in Athens that is able to meet them. We strongly suggest contacting one or two of the companies on our above list to find the perfect one for you.

  • Athens is part of the Mixed-Humid climate zone.
  • Athens is in the 67% percentile in the country when it comes to tree coverage.
  • Athens sits at the 79.9% percentile for average precipitation, in case you're someone who loves rain.

Choosing a Athens Lawn Care Company


During Treatments: If you're using a subscription company, you will perform treatments yourself based on the instructions provided by the company. If you're using a full-service company like TruGreen, their technicians will come to your home to do any requested lawn care. Your company may ask you to be home the first time they come out. However, you usually will not need to be home for lawn care treatment. You'll be informed by the company (either in writing or electronically) what treatments were done and when.

"For more than two decades, the NALP Foundation...has supported education, research, and scholarships to strengthen the future of the landscape and lawn care industry."

Next, you'll need to figure out which companies provide the specific services that you need. Many lawn care service companies in Athens have both fixed plans and "a la carte" options, which allow you to pick and choose which services you want.

The next step is to get an inspection and quote. Even before they see your property, some companies can give you an estimate by using GPS technology. This estimate will be based largely on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.

Frequently asked questions for lawn care companies


What is the fee for lawn care in Athens?

The amount you will pay for lawn care in Athens will vary based on several factors. One is how large your lawn is, and another is the type of services you need. The price will also change based on how frequently your lawn needs servicing. Subscription companies will cost less at first, but you will need to do the manual labor yourself. It is in your best interest to get in touch with one or two of the companies on our list of Athens' top lawn service providers to obtain an estimate.

How can I choose between all of the various types of lawn care companies, or between hiring a company and doing it myself?

The best plan for you will be dependent on what you think of the trade-off between money and work. If you do everything yourself, you don't have to pay for labor, but this option is the most work. If you employ one of Athens' full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they take care of all the labor and logistics, but you will need to invest more money up front. Subscription companies are generally somewhere in between.

What sort of lawn care does my lawn need in different seasons in Athens?

Year-round, you should be completing weed and pest control, tree and shrub care, and aeration and fertilization as needed. In warmer parts of the year, you'll want to also add in soil care and seeding/overseeding. In the cooler months, you may want to winterize your lawn. The pros of using a Athens lawn care company include getting expert help finding the schedule that is best for you and your lawn.

How can I ensure that my pets are safe during and after lawn care services?

Pets should be kept indoors during lawn treatments, whether performed by you or a professional. If a full-service company does the application, they will tell you when it is safe for your pets to be on your lawn again. If you order products from a subscription company, the company should provide this information on or with all of their products.

How long might it take for results to be noticeable following lawn care services?

With some services, like tree care and edging, you can see immediate results. It may be days to weeks before you start seeing results from certain other services, such as fertilization and weed control. Certain results will also vary based on the weather in your part of Georgia and the time of year.

Why should I pay a lawn care services company in Athens instead of just paying a neighbor to handle it?

Utilizing a lawn services company — either full-service or subscription — will help make sure the job is done correctly, and save you money down the road. When you use 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 often. These companies also provide the products, and (if you hire a full-service company) the labor. Both of these things are usually backed by guarantees.
