DIY vs Professional Lawn Care - Which is Better?


Don't want to handle lawn care all by yourself? Explore using a subscription lawn care company, or employ one of Urbandale's full-service lawn care companies. Doing your lawn care on your own could be less expensive at first. However, without the expert guidance of a lawn care professional, you increase the chances of making mistakes that wind up being costly in the future.

Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, provide assistance to supplement your DIY lawn care. This is usually in the form of subscription packages that provide you with all the necessary chemicals and equipment for your lawn, depending on the time of year and your location in Iowa. These companies can provide you with a lot of guidance with lawn care, but you still have to do all the labor yourself.

If you would rather be completely hands-off, a full-service company like TruGreen is going to be the best avenue for you. This option might be the most pricy, but not without reason: they offer custom solutions to all your lawn care problems, and they take care of all the 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

Choosing a Urbandale Lawn Care Company


When you're ready to hire a lawn care services company, you want to know that they are reliable. To be permitted to apply chemicals like pesticides to your lawn, a lawn care professional must be licensed through the Iowa Department of Agriculture. If you need landscaping services such as edging and mowing, check to see if a company meets all of Iowa's landscaper licensing requirements. You can also learn whether a company belongs to an organization such as the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Membership is not mandatory, but NALP allows landscaping professionals to collaborate and share information about best practices. You can also look up company reviews and browse their website to learn more about the guarantees they offer.

"[Our mission is to] advocate for lawn and landscape industry growth and the benefits we provide to our communities."

Next, you'll want to determine which Urbandale lawn care companies offer the specific services you need. A company may have both plans and "a la carte" options where you can pick and choose specific services.

After narrowing down your list even further, you can reach out to companies and ask about getting a free inspection and service quote. Inspections can happen relatively quickly — some companies are even able to estimate the size of your yard using GPS technology before visiting your home. They can then provide an estimate based on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.

Frequently asked questions for lawn care companies


How much should I expect to pay for lawn care in Urbandale?

The amount you will pay for lawn care in Urbandale will vary based on certain factors. One is how big your lawn is, and another is what type of services you need. The price will also change based on how often your lawn needs servicing. Subscription companies will cost less at first, but you will have to do the manual labor yourself. It is strongly suggested that you contact one or two of the companies from our list of Urbandale's top lawn service providers to get an estimate.

How can I decide between the different types of lawn care companies? How do I choose between going with a company and doing it myself?

Your best fit will be based on what you think of the trade-off between work and money. If you do everything on your own, you won't have to pay for labor, but this option will necessitate the most work from you. If you choose to go with one of Urbandale's full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they take care of all the labor and logistics, but you will pay more money. Subscription companies are somewhere in the middle.

Are there any lawn care companies in Urbandale that will take care of gardening, mulching, crabgrass, and other services?

There are certain lawn care companies that perform a wide variety of services, and there are others that specialize in a small number of practices. If you are wondering whether a lawn care company in Urbandale offers a specific service, we suggest reaching out to them directly.

How frequently should I (or a company) be working on my lawn in Urbandale?

When it comes to caring for your Urbandale lawn, consistency is key. There are services like mowing that you'll want done every one or two weeks. Some services — like pest and weed control — can be done less frequently. Some things that will affect your lawn care schedule are the time of year, the condition of your lawn when you first begin services, and the weather in your part of Iowa.

What happens if my lawn care technician needs to cancel due to inclement weather?

If inclement weather is expected, it may have an effect on which services are appropriate for a certain day, and your technician may need to cancel. If this is the case, they will reach out to you to reschedule as soon as possible. Some lawn care companies in Urbandale also have mobile apps where you can view and adjust your schedule.
