Keeping your lawn healthy and beautiful goes a long way towards both the appearance and value of your house, but good lawn upkeep takes a lot of hard work. In Quincy, which is hotter than 62.0% of the country, your lawn may require even more care in the warmer months.
To help get your lawn in its best shape ever, we've assembled a list of Quincy's top lawn care service providers. Read below to find our list and to choose the best provider for you.
TruGreen, founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn, now operates in 48 U.S. states. The company is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. Their variety of pre-set and flexible plans can be purchased online. All of their services are performed by TruExpert℠ Certified Specialists, and their full programs are backed by their TruGreen Guarantee®.
Sunday Lawn Care delivers "custom lawn nutrients, herbicides, pest control, grass seed, bare spot repair, pet spot solutions, garden fertilizer, flower bulbs, and wildflower seeds" to your door at various times throughout the year, based on climate and soil data for your property. When you sign up with Sunday, you will choose from one of three different subscription plans. All of these plans 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 handle everything on your own you can choose either a subscription company or one of Quincy's full-service lawn care companies. Doing your lawn care on your own could help you save money at first. However, without the expert guidance of a lawn care professional, you increase the chances of making mistakes that prove costly in the future.
If you want to take some of the guesswork out of lawn care, you can use a company like Sunday Lawn Care. These companies put together subscription packages of lawn tools and chemicals, which are shipped to you regularly depending on the time of year and where you live in Illinois. The company takes care of the research and planning, although you will still be the one pulling weeds.
Would you prefer to have someone else handle everything? A full-service company like TruGreen might be the best fit for you. A full-service lawn care company might be the most expensive option, but they take care of not just the decision-making but also the manual labor.
There are a variety of different services that Quincy's lawn care companies can provide, including:
There is a Quincy lawn care company for every need and budget. We strongly suggest contacting one or two from the above list to discover the one that will be best for you.
You want to choose a lawn care services company that is reliable. 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 you're in need of landscaping services (such as tree and shrub care), they'll have to meet all of the landscaper licensing requirements for Illinois. Some companies are also members of organizations like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). NALP membership is not mandatory, but the association lets companies collaborate and share information on best practices. Finally, you can browse a company's website to learn about the guarantees they offer, and read online reviews.
After you've found the best companies in your area, you'll need to figure out which ones can provide the specific combination of services that you want. Many lawn care companies in Quincy offer both fixed plans and "a la carte" options that let you make your own lawn care package.
Once you've chosen a company or two, you'll want to ask about an inspection and quote. By using GPS technology, some companies can give you an estimate based on the size of your lawn before they've even seen your property. Your estimate will depend mainly on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.
If you haven't worked with a Quincy lawn care company before (or even if you have) you might be curious about what to expect. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Choosing a reputable Quincy lawn care company can help you feel much more confident and knowledgeable about the process. Any provider from our list of the best lawn care companies in Quincy can explain all steps of the process and ensure that you know exactly what to expect.
The cost of lawn care in Quincy will be based on several factors. One is the size of your lawn, and another is the type and number of services that you want. The cost will also vary based on how often your lawn needs to be serviced. Subscription companies will be cheaper up front, but you will have to do the manual labor yourself. We suggest you reach out to one or two of the companies on our list of the top lawn service providers in Quincy for an estimate.
The amount of money you want to spend and how much work you are willing to do will both have an effect on the lawn care model that is the best fit for you. Going with one of Quincy's full-service lawn care companies such as TruGreen will be the most expensive, but will also require the least manual labor on your part. Conversely, handling everything on your own will cost the least, but will necessitate the most hard work and planning. Subscription companies fall in between the other options.
There are some lawn care companies that provide a wide variety of services, and others that specialize in a small number of practices. If you are curious whether a lawn care company in Quincy offers a specific service, we recommend reaching out to them directly.
When taking care of your Quincy lawn, consistency is key. There are services like mowing that you'll want to do every one or two weeks. Services like pest and weed control can be done less often. Some things that will affect your lawn care schedule are the time of year, the weather in your part of Illinois, and the condition of your lawn when you first begin services.
There are some lawn care providers (such as Sunday Lawn Care) that use products made with natural ingredients. Many companies provide lists of ingredients on their website, and you can also speak with a company directly to ask them about their ingredients.
Some services — such as mowing and edging — allow you to begin seeing results immediately. With services such as overseeding and weed control, it could take up 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 Illinois.
