For the most part, there are three main ways to do lawn care: handling all of it yourself, using a subscription company, or employing one of the full-service lawn care companies that operate in Milton. While doing everything yourself may seem like the most budget-friendly option, this leaves the possibility of expensive mistakes open. You also will be working without expert guidance from a lawn care professional.
Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, provide assistance to supplement 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 the time of year and your location in Georgia. These companies offer a lot of guidance with lawn care, but you still need to make time to do the work.
Prefer to have someone else handling everything? A full-service company like TruGreen may be right for you. A full-service lawn care company might be the most expensive option, but these companies take care of not just the decision-making but also the manual labor.
There are many services for which you might need a lawn care company in Milton, such as:
There is a Milton lawn care company for every need and budget. We recommend contacting one or two of the ones on our above list to find the one that will be best for you.
During Treatments: If you've opted for a subscription company, you will handle all treatments yourself based on the provided instructions. If you've gone with a full-service company like TruGreen, their technicians will come to your home to perform services. Your company might ask you to be home the first time they come to your house. However, you generally do not need to be home for lawn care treatment. The company will inform you (either in writing or electronically) what services they performed and when.
After you've determined the best companies in your area, you'll need to figure out which ones can perform the specific combination of services that you need. Many Milton lawn care companies offer both pre-set plans and "a la carte" options that let you make your own service package.
After this, you will want to get an inspection and quote. Even without visiting your property, some companies can give you an estimate with GPS technology. This estimate will be determined by the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.

The amount you pay for lawn care in Milton may change based on a number of factors. First is your lawn size. Next is the number and type of services you need. Lastly, there is the schedule on which you want services. Generally, a subscription company is less expensive than a full-service company, but you will have to do the work yourself. We recommend contacting at least one of the companies from our list of the best lawn care service providers in Milton to ask for a quote.
The amount of money that you are willing to spend and how much work you are willing to do will both have an effect on what type of lawn care is best for you. Choosing a full-service Milton lawn care company such as TruGreen will be the priciest, but will also require you to perform the least manual labor. Conversely, handling everything yourself will cost the least amount of money, but will require the most hard work and planning. Subscription companies are somewhere in between your other options.
When caring for your Milton lawn, consistency is key. Some services, like mowing, are best done every one to two weeks. Some services — like pest and weed control — can be done less often. Factors that could affect your lawn care schedule include the condition of your lawn when you first begin services, the weather in your part of Georgia, and the time of year.
No matter if you or a lawn care company are working on your lawn, your pets should stay inside during the process. A subscription company should list pet safety information on their products. If you go with a full-service company, they will let you know when it is safe for pets to be on your lawn after treatment.
Some services — like edging and tree care — allow you to see results right away. With services like fertilization and seeding, you may need to wait a few days to a few weeks to see results. The time needed for visible results will also vary based on the time of year and the weather in your part of Georgia.
If there is inclement weather, it may change which services are appropriate for a certain day, and your servicer may need to cancel. Should something like this occur, they will contact you to reschedule as soon as possible. Some Milton lawn care companies also have mobile apps where you can view and change your schedule.
