Everyone wants to have a healthy, beautiful lawn, but many dread the time and effort required for upkeep. Bethesda sees warmer temperatures than 64.7% of the U.S., which means your lawn might require even more attention during the hotter months.
Our list below can help alleviate your worries and get your lawn into top condition. Keep reading for our list of the top-rated lawn care service providers in Bethesda.
TruGreen was founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn and currently operates in 48 states. The company is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. Their variety of pre-set and flexible plans can be purchased online. All TruGreen services are performed by TruExpert℠ Certified Specialists, and their full programs are backed by their TruGreen Guarantee®.
Sunday Lawn Care delivers "custom lawn nutrients, herbicides, pest control, grass seed, bare spot repair, pet spot solutions, garden fertilizer, flower bulbs, and wildflower seeds" to your door at various times throughout the year, based on climate and soil data for your property.

When you need to do lawn care, if you don't want to handle everything on your own you can employ the services of either a subscription company or one of Bethesda's full-service lawn care companies. Caring for your lawn on your own could help you save money at first. However, without expert advice from a lawn care professional, you increase the chances of making mistakes that wind up being expensive in the future.
Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, offer assistance with DIY lawn care. In most cases, this is in the form of subscription packages that provide you with all the necessary chemicals and equipment for your lawn, based on your location in Maryland and the time of year. These companies offer a lot of guidance with lawn care, but you will still be doing all of the manual work.
Prefer hiring someone who can take care of both the mental and physical tasks? Consider hiring a full-service company like TruGreen. While this will likely be your most expensive option, you will receive the most comprehensive services, and the pros will take care of the hard work so you don't have to.
Lawn care companies around Bethesda offer a variety of services, including:
Regardless of your needs, there is a Bethesda lawn care company that is able to meet them. We strongly suggest contacting one or more of the companies from our list above to find the perfect one for you.
It is probably important to you to choose a reliable lawn care services company. If you are going to have chemicals like pesticides applied to your lawn, your technician must be licensed through the Maryland Department of Agriculture. If you need them to perform landscaping services (such as edging), they will need to meet all of Maryland's landscaper licensing requirements. 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 lets companies collaborate and share information on best practices. Last but not least, you can browse a company's website to learn about the guarantees they offer, and read online reviews.
After you've found the best companies in your area, you'll need to figure out which ones offer the specific combination of services that you want. Many Bethesda lawn care companies offer both fixed plans and "a la carte" options that let you make your own lawn care package.
Once you've figured out which companies might be right for you, you can reach out and ask for a free inspection and estimate. Using GPS technology, some companies can estimate the size of your yard and give you a quote over the phone. The price you pay will vary based mainly on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.
There are a number of things a homeowner in Bethesda should keep in mind before, during, and after lawn care services. Some of those things are:

The cost of lawn care in Bethesda will depend on certain factors. One is your lawn's size, and another is the type of services you need. The price will also vary based on how frequently your lawn needs services. Subscription companies will be less expensive at first, but you will have to do the manual labor yourself. We suggest you reach out to a couple of the companies on our list of Bethesda's top lawn service providers to get an estimate.
The amount of money you want to spend and how much work you are willing to do will both have an effect on what type of lawn care is the best fit for you. Choosing a full-service Bethesda lawn care company such as TruGreen will cost the most, but also will require the least manual labor on your part. On the other hand, doing everything on your own will be the least expensive, but will necessitate the most planning and hard work. Subscription companies fall in between these other options.
There are some lawn care companies that offer a variety of services, and others that specialize in specific practices. If you want to know whether a lawn care company in Bethesda offers a specific service, you can reach out to them directly.
Consistency is key when it comes to taking care of your Bethesda lawn. Certain services (such as mowing) are best done every one or two weeks. Services like pest and weed control can be done less often. Some things that will affect your lawn care schedule are the weather in your part of Maryland, the condition of your lawn when you first begin services, and the time of year.
There are some lawn care providers (such as Sunday Lawn Care) that use natural ingredients in their products. Many companies explain what ingredients they use on their website. You can also reach out to a company directly to ask about the ingredients they use.
Some services — such as tree care and edging — allow you to begin seeing results right away. 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 vary based on the weather in your part of Maryland and the time of year.
