TruGreen, founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn, services 48 states in the U.S. and is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee.

All TruGreen services are performed by TruExpert℠ Certified Specialists, and their full programs are backed by their TruGreen Guarantee®.
Sunday Lawn Care uses each customer's individual soil and climate data to deliver "custom lawn nutrients, herbicides, pest control, grass seed, bare spot repair, pet spot solutions, garden fertilizer, flower bulbs, and wildflower seeds" at the appropriate times throughout the year. With Sunday, you can 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 you need to do lawn care, if you don't want to do everything yourself you can choose either a subscription company or one of the full-service lawn care companies operating in Hampton. While tackling the project by yourself may seem like the least expensive option, doing so leaves the possibility of expensive mistakes open. 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 take the guesswork out of the process. Companies like this will send you a subscription package of lawn care equipment and chemicals. They decide what your lawn needs and when, depending on the season and where you live in Illinois. However, you still need to handle the manual labor.
If you would like to have a company manage the whole process, hiring a full-service company like TruGreen is your best bet. While they may be more expensive than other options, they manage every step of the way, from determining what you need to doing the actual work.
Hampton's lawn care companies offer many different kinds of services, including:
There is a lawn care company for every need and budget in Hampton. It is recommended that you contact one or two of the ones on our above list to determine the one that will be best for you.
You want to choose a lawn care services company that you can trust. A technician who is going to apply chemicals like pesticides to your lawn will need to be licensed through the Illinois Department of Agriculture. If they are going to be performing landscaping services (such as edging), they'll need to meet all of Illinois' landscaper licensing requirements. A company may also be a member of an organization like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Lawn care companies are not required to be members of NALP, but the association allows companies to collaborate and share information on best practices. Finally, you can explore a company's website to see what kind of guarantees they offer, and read online reviews.
The next step is to figure out which companies offer the specific services that you need. Many Hampton lawn care service companies can offer you both fixed plans and "a la carte" options, which allow you to pick and choose exactly which services you need.
After narrowing down your list even more, you can begin asking companies about getting a free inspection and service quote. You often won't need to wait long for an inspection — some companies are even able to estimate the size of your yard using GPS technology before they visit your home. They can then give you an estimate based on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
When you work with a Hampton lawn care company, there are things you can expect before, during, and after treatments. Some of these are:
Picking a reliable Hampton lawn care company will make you feel much more confident and knowledgeable about the process. Any provider you choose from our list of the best lawn care companies in Hampton can explain all steps of the process and help you know exactly what to expect.
The cost of lawn care in Hampton may vary widely based on several factors. First is the size of your lawn. Next is the type and number of services you want. Lastly, there is the schedule on which you want services. Generally, a subscription company is going to be less expensive than a full-service company, but you will have to do the work yourself. We recommend contacting one or two of the companies from our list of Hampton's best lawn care service providers to ask for a quote.
The amount of money you want to spend and how much work you plan to do will both have an effect on the type of lawn care that is best for you. Going with a full-service Hampton lawn care company such as TruGreen will be the most expensive, but also will require the least work from you. Conversely, doing everything yourself will cost the least, but will necessitate the most hard work and planning. Subscription companies are somewhere in between the other options.
There are some lawn care companies that provide a variety of services, and others that specialize in only a few practices. If you want to know whether a Hampton lawn care company offers a specific service, you can reach out to them directly.
Pets should be kept indoors during lawn treatments, whether you've hired someone or are doing it yourself. Full-service companies will let you know when it is safe for your pets to be on your lawn again. If you receive products through a subscription company, they should provide this information with all of their products.
Many lawn care companies will list their ingredients on their website. Some (such as Sunday Lawn Care) state that they use natural ingredients in their products. If you cannot find this information on a company's website, you can call or email them and ask.
Some services — such as edging and mowing — allow you to begin seeing results as soon as they are performed. With services like fertilization and overseeding, you may be waiting days or weeks to see results. The amount of time it takes to see results will also be dependent on the weather in your part of Illinois and the time of year.
