When there is lawn care to be done, if you don't want to go it alone you can use either a subscription company or one of the full-service lawn care companies operating in River Ridge. While doing everything yourself may seem like the least expensive option, this leaves you open to expensive mistakes. You also forgo the expert guidance of your local lawn care professionals.
A company like Sunday Lawn Care can help take the guesswork out of the process. These kinds of companies will mail you a subscription package of lawn care equipment and chemicals. They determine what your lawn needs and when, based on your location in Louisiana and the time of year. However, you still need to handle the manual labor.
Prefer hiring someone who will handle both the mental and physical tasks? Consider hiring a full-service company like TruGreen. Although this will likely be the priciest option, companies like this can offer the most comprehensive services, and the pros will do all the hard work so you don't have to.
Your local River Ridge lawn care companies can provide many different services, such as:
No matter what type of services you require, there is a River Ridge lawn care company that fits the bill. We recommend looking into one or two of the companies on our list above to learn which one is best for you.
During Treatments: If you've opted for a subscription company, you will perform treatments yourself based on the instructions provided by the company. If you've gone with a full-service company like TruGreen, their technicians will come to your home to treat your lawn. Your company might ask that you be home the first time they visit. However, you usually will not need to be present for your lawn care technician to do treatments. You'll be informed by the company (either electronically or in writing) what services they performed and when.
Next you will want to figure out which companies provide the specific services that you need. Many River Ridge lawn care service companies offer both fixed plans and "a la carte" options, where you are able to pick and choose only those services that you want.
After whittling 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 via GPS before they come out to your home. The company should then be able to give you an estimate based on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.
There are a number of things a homeowner in River Ridge should keep in mind before, during, and after lawn care services. Some of these are:
Selecting a trustworthy River Ridge lawn care company can help you feel much more confident and knowledgeable about the process. Any provider you choose from our list of the best lawn care companies in River Ridge can explain all steps of the process and make sure that you know what to expect.
The amount you will pay for lawn care in River Ridge will depend on several factors. One is your lawn's size, and another is what kind of services you need. The cost will also change based on how frequently your lawn needs servicing. Subscription companies will be less expensive up front, but you will have to do all of the manual work yourself. It is strongly suggested that you reach out to one or two of the companies on our list of River Ridge's top lawn service providers to get an estimate.
The plan that fits best for you will depend on how you view 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 is the most work. If you choose to go with one of River Ridge's full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they will handle the labor and logistics, but the up-front cost will be higher. Subscription companies are somewhere in between.
Certain lawn care companies have specific specialties, while other companies offer a wide variety of services. To find out if a River Ridge lawn care company offers services outside of the ones normally provided, it is best to ask them directly.
Pets should be kept inside during lawn treatments, whether you or professionals are doing the application. If you hire a full-service company, they will tell you when you can allow your pets to be on your lawn again. If you are getting products from a subscription company, they should provide this information with all of their products.
Some services — like 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 depend on the weather in your part of Louisiana and the time of year.
If inclement weather is expected, it may alter which services are appropriate for a certain day, and your company may need to cancel. When this happens, they will reach out to you as soon as possible to reschedule. Some River Ridge lawn care companies also have mobile apps where you can see and adjust your schedule.
