DIY vs Professional Lawn Care - Which is Better?


Sometimes, you might want to handle lawn care yourself. For the times when you want professional assistance, you can use the services of a subscription company, or pay one of Portland's full-service lawn care companies. When you make the choice to handle everything on your own, you don't pay extra labor costs, but you don't receive any professional guidance. The outcome could be expensive mistakes down the line.

Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, can help you with your DIY lawn care. In most cases, this is in the form of subscription packages which will deliver all the necessary chemicals and equipment for your lawn, based on the time of year and your location in Maine. These companies offer a lot of guidance with lawn care, but you will still be doing all of the manual work.

If you would like to have a company handle all parts of the process, hiring a full-service company like TruGreen is the solution you need. Although these companies tend to be pricier than other options, they take the lead every step of the way, from determining what you need 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 Portland, ME


Your local Portland lawn care companies can provide many different kinds of services, such as:

There is a lawn care company for every need and budget in Portland. We strongly suggest contacting one or two of the ones on our above list to discover the one that is best for you.

Portland Quick Facts

  • In Maine, the average lot size is approximately 8,100 square feet.
  • Portland is in the 27% percentile in the country when it comes to tree coverage.
  • Are you neither here nor there on cold weather? Portland's average low is around 39° F.
  • Portland comes in around the 83.4% percentile for average precipitation, in case you're someone who loves rain.
  • Portland gets a good mix of clouds and sun. It sits around the 29.4% percentile when it comes to average daily sunlight.

Choosing a Portland Lawn Care Company


It is probably important to you to choose a lawn care services company that you can trust. If the technician is going to apply chemicals like pesticides around your property, they will need to be licensed through the Maine Department of Agriculture. If you need them to perform landscaping services (such as tree and shrub care), they will have to meet all of the landscaper licensing requirements for Maine. Companies might also have membership in organizations like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Landscapers are not required to be NALP members, but the association allows companies to collaborate and share information on best practices. Finally, you can look at a company's website to find out what kind of guarantees they offer, and read online reviews.

"As a professional, you're never done learning and growing your skills. Our educational partnerships can help you continue to refine your abilities."

Next, you'll need to determine which companies provide the specific services that you need. Many lawn care service companies in Portland have both fixed plans and "a la carte" options, where you are able to pick and choose only the services that you need.

After whittling down your list even further, you can ask companies about free inspections and getting a service quote. Inspections can be quick and painless — some companies are even able to estimate the size of your yard using GPS technology before visiting your home. From there, they should be able to give you an estimate based on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.

Homeowner Responsibilities

When you're planning to hire a Portland lawn care company, you might wonder what to expect. Here are some things to keep in mind:

Choosing the right lawn care company in Portland can go a long way towards feeling confident and knowledgeable when it comes to all of the work to be done. We recommend reaching out to one of the companies on our list of Portland's best lawn care providers to find the right professional for your needs.

Frequently asked questions for lawn care companies


What is the fee for lawn care in Portland?

The price of lawn care in Portland will be based on several factors. One is your lawn's size, and another is the type and number of services that you need. The price will also vary based on how frequently your lawn needs servicing. Subscription companies will cost less up front, but you will have to do the manual labor yourself. It is in your best interest to contact one or two of the companies from our list of the top lawn service providers in Portland for an estimate.

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

Your best fit will depend on how you view the trade-off between money and work. If you handle everything on your own, you don't have to pay for labor, but this option requires the most work on your part. If you choose to go with one of Portland'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.

How can I make sure my pets remain safe during and after lawn care treatments?

Pets should remain in the house during lawn treatments, whether you've hired someone or are doing it yourself. If a full-service company does the application, they will tell you when pets can safely be on your lawn again. If you receive products through a subscription company, they should provide this information on or with all of their products.

Can I find any Portland lawn care companies that use natural ingredients?

Many lawn care providers list their ingredients on their website. Some (such as Sunday Lawn Care) use products containing natural ingredients. If this information is not provided on a company's website, you can contact them and ask.

What happens if there is inclement weather and my lawn care technician needs to cancel?

If your Portland lawn care provider cancels for any reason, they will contact you to reschedule as soon as possible. There are even some companies that have mobile apps where you are able to view and edit your schedule as well.
