Don't want to handle lawn care all by yourself? You might look into a subscription lawn care company, or get in touch with one of Shawnee's full-service lawn care companies. While doing everything yourself may seem like the cheapest option, it leaves you open to expensive mistakes. You also forgo the expert guidance of your local lawn care professionals.
Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, can help you with your DIY lawn care. This is generally in the form of subscription packages that provide all the chemicals and equipment you need for your lawn, based on the time of year and your location in Kansas. These companies can provide you with a lot of guidance with lawn care, but you still need to make time to do the work.
Rather have someone else handling everything? A full-service company like TruGreen may be best for you. A full-service lawn care company might be the priciest option, but full-service companies handle not only the decision-making but also the manual labor.
There are a number of services that you might use a Shawnee lawn care company for, such as:
No matter what type of services you want, there is a Shawnee lawn care company for you. We strongly suggest looking into one or two of the companies on our list above to find which one is the best fit.
During Treatments: If you end up choosing a subscription company, you will be the one to treat your lawn based on the provided instructions. If you've hired a full-service company like TruGreen, a lawn care professional will come to your home to do any requested lawn care. Your company may ask that you 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 electronically or in writing) what services they performed and when.
Next, you need to figure out if the company provides the services you need. Shawnee lawn care companies can provide you with fixed plans or one of their "a la carte'' options that gives you the flexibility to pick and choose services.
Once you've chosen a company or two, you'll want to contact them to get an inspection and quote. With GPS technology, some companies are even able to offer an estimate based on how big your yard is before coming out to see your property. Your estimate will be based mainly on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
If you've never hired a Shawnee lawn care company before — or even if you have — you may wonder what you should expect. Here are some things to keep in mind:
When you choose a provider from our list of the best lawn care companies in Shawnee, you know that you're in expert hands. Your Shawnee lawn care provider can clarify all expectations and keep you well-informed throughout the process.
The price of lawn care in Shawnee may change based on a number of factors. First is your lawn size. Next is the number and kind of services you want. Lastly, there is the schedule on which you want services. In most cases, a subscription company will be cheaper than a full-service company, but using a subscription company means that you need to do the manual labor yourself. We recommend contacting one or more of the companies from our list of Shawnee's best lawn care service providers for a quote.
Your best fit will be dependent on what you think of the trade-off between work and money. If you do everything on your own, you don't need to pay for labor, but this option will necessitate the most work from you. If you choose to go with one of Shawnee's full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they take care of all of the labor and logistics, but you will pay more money. Subscription companies fall somewhere in the middle.
Some lawn care companies have specific services they specialize in, while others offer more of a variety of services. To learn if a lawn care company in Shawnee offers services outside of the ones often provided, it is best to ask them directly.
Throughout the year, your lawn should receive weed and pest control, tree and shrub care, and aeration and fertilization as needed. In warmer parts of the year, you may also want to take care of soil care and seeding/overseeding. In the cooler months, you might need leaf and snow removal, and you may want to winterize your lawn. The benefits of using a lawn care company in Shawnee include receiving expert help finding the schedule that is best for you and your lawn.
Some lawn care providers (such as Sunday Lawn Care) use products made with natural ingredients. Many companies have a list of ingredients that they use on their website. You can also speak with a company directly to ask about the ingredients they use.
If your Shawnee lawn care provider needs to cancel due to weather, they will contact you to reschedule as soon as possible. Some companies even have mobile apps where you can view and edit your schedule.
