DIY vs Professional Lawn Care - Which is Better?


Generally, there are three 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 Iowa City. If you elect to handle everything on your own, you will initially save some money. However, you will not have expert guidance and advice that might help you prevent costly mistakes.

A company like Sunday Lawn Care can help take the guesswork out of the process. Companies like this will send you a regular subscription package of lawn care chemicals and equipment. They decide what your lawn needs and when, depending on your location in Iowa and the time of year. However, you will still need to make time to do the manual labor.

If you would like to have a company take care of everything, hiring a full-service company like TruGreen is the way to go. Although companies like this may be more expensive than other options, they handle everything, from determining what your lawn needs to doing the actual work.


Best Lawn Care Service
  • Large variety of plans
  • Strongest service guarantee
  • America's #1 Lawn Care Company

Best DIY Lawn Care
  • Custom plans to fit your lawn
  • Subscription service delivers right to your door
  • Foolproof tools and instructions

Types of Lawn Care Services in Iowa City, IA


Lawn care companies around Iowa City can perform many different services, such as:

There is a lawn care company for every need and budget in Iowa City. We recommend contacting one or two of the ones on our list above to find the one that will be best for you.

Iowa City Quick Facts

  • Iowa City sees more sunlight than around 36.4% of the United States.
  • The average lot size in Iowa is about 9,400 square feet.
  • Iowa City is in the 28% percentile when it comes to tree coverage.
  • Normally, Iowa City gets about 28.0 inches of snow a year.
  • Iowa City sits in the Cold climate zone.

Choosing a Iowa City Lawn Care Company


During Treatments: If you're using a subscription company, you will be the one to treat your lawn 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 present for your lawn care technician to do treatments. The company will inform you (either electronically or in writing) what services they performed 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."

After you've determined the best companies in your area, you'll need to determine which ones can provide the specific combination of services that you need. Many lawn care companies in Iowa City offer both pre-set 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 go about getting an inspection and quote. With GPS technology, some companies are even able to make an estimate based on the size of your yard before they've even seen your property. Your estimate will rely mainly on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.

Homeowner Responsibilities

When you're planning to hire an Iowa City lawn care company, you may wonder what to expect. The following are some things to keep in mind:

Picking a reliable lawn care company in Iowa City goes a long way towards helping you feel more confident and comfortable with the process. Any provider from our list of Iowa City's best lawn care companies can walk you through the process and help you know exactly what to expect.

Frequently asked questions for lawn care companies


How much does lawn care cost in Iowa City?

The amount you pay for lawn care in Iowa City may change based on certain factors. First is your lawn size. Next is the type and number of services you want. Last but not least, there is the schedule on which you want services. In most cases, a subscription company is less expensive than a full-service company, but using a subscription company means that you need to do the manual labor yourself. It is recommended that you contact at least one of the companies from our list of the best lawn care service providers in Iowa City to ask for a quote.

Which type of lawn care is best for me: DIY, a subscription package, or a full-service company?

The best plan for you will depend on your views on the trade-off between money and work. If you decide to do everything on your own, you don't need to pay for labor, but this option requires the most work on your part. If you hire one of Iowa City's full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they take care of the labor and logistics, but you will pay more money. Subscription companies are somewhere in the middle.

Are there Iowa City lawn care companies that will take care of mulching, gardening, crabgrass, and other services?

There are certain lawn care companies that provide a variety of services, and there are others that specialize in only a few practices. If you need to know whether a lawn care company in Iowa City offers a specific service, we suggest reaching out to them directly.

How often should I (or a company) be doing lawn care work in Iowa City?

Consistency is key when caring for your Iowa City lawn. Some services, like mowing, are best done every one or 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 Iowa, and the time of year.

How long might it take for me to notice a difference in my lawn?

Some services — such as tree care and edging — allow you to see results immediately. With services like overseeding and seeding, you may be waiting days or 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 Iowa.
