Everyone would like to have a beautiful, healthy lawn, but many dread the time and effort required to maintain one. Calverton gets higher temperatures than 65.5% of the U.S., which could cause your lawn to require extra attention during the hotter months.
Our carefully crafted list below can help you overcome your concerns and get your lawn into top condition. Keep reading for our list of the best lawn care service providers in the Calverton area.

Don't want to handle lawn care by yourself? Consider signing up with a subscription lawn care company, or get in touch with one of Calverton's full-service lawn care companies. Doing your lawn care on your own could help you save money at first. However, without expert advice from a lawn care professional, there is a chance of you making mistakes that wind up being expensive in the future.
Companies like Sunday Lawn Care were created to provide assistance with DIY lawn care. Companies like this offer subscription packages of lawn care equipment and chemicals that they ship to you as needed. These packages are assembled based on the time of year and your location in Maryland. This takes some of the guesswork out of lawn care; however, you'll still need to do the labor yourself.
If you would prefer to have a company handle all parts of the process, hiring a full-service company like TruGreen is your best bet. While they may be more expensive than other options, they manage every step of the way, from determining what you need to doing the actual work.
Your local Calverton lawn care companies can be hired for many different types of services, such as:
Regardless of what your needs are, there is a lawn care company in Calverton that can meet them. We strongly suggest contacting one or two of the companies from our list above to determine which one is right for you.
When it is time for you to choose a company, you should first ensure that you're choosing a reputable one. If a technician will be applying chemicals like pesticides at any point, they'll have to be licensed through the Maryland Department of Agriculture. If your technician will be performing landscaping services, such as mowing or tree care, you can check if they meet all of the landscaper licensing requirements for Maryland. Once you've verified that a company is licensed, you can see if they are a member of an organization such as the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). NALP is an optional association that helps members collaborate and provides information about industry best practices. You can also look up online reviews and explore the company's website to find out exactly what guarantees they offer.
Next, you'll want to figure out which companies in Calverton offer the specific services you need. Many companies offer both plans and "a la carte" options that let you pick and choose from a list of services.
After whittling down your list even further, you can reach out to companies and ask about getting a free inspection and quote for services. Inspections can be quick and painless — some companies are even able to quickly estimate the size of your yard using GPS before they come out to your home. They can then provide an estimate based on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.
When you hire a lawn care company in Calverton, there are things you can expect before, during, and after treatments. Some of those things are:
Choosing a trustworthy Calverton lawn care company will make you feel much more confident and comfortable with the process. Any provider you choose from our list of the best lawn care companies in Calverton can explain all steps of the process and help you know what to expect.
The cost of lawn care in Calverton varies based on certain factors. First is how big your lawn is. Next is the type and number of services you need. Lastly, there is how often you want services. Generally, a subscription company will be cheaper than a full-service company, but you will have to do the work yourself. We recommend contacting one or more of the companies from our list of Calverton's best lawn care service providers to get a quote.
The plan that fits best for you will be based on your views on the trade-off between work and money. If you decide to do everything yourself, you don't need to pay for labor, but this option will necessitate the most work from you. If you hire a full-service lawn care company in Calverton (such as TruGreen), they will handle all of the logistics and labor, but the up-front cost will be higher. Subscription companies fall somewhere in between.
Throughout the year, you should be completing weed and pest control, tree and shrub care, and aeration and fertilization as needed. During the warmer months, you'll want to also add in soil care and seeding/overseeding. When it starts to get cooler, you may need leaf and snow removal, and you may need to winterize your lawn. The benefits of choosing a Calverton lawn care company include receiving expert help finding what schedule is best for you and your lawn.
Many lawn care companies 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 reach out to them directly and ask.
If inclement weather is expected, it may have an effect on which services are needed on a certain day, and your provider may need to cancel. When this happens, they will reach out to you as soon as possible to reschedule. Some lawn care companies in Calverton also have mobile apps where you can see and change your schedule.
Going with a lawn services company — either full-service or subscription — can help make sure the job is done correctly, and can save you money in the future. When you use a lawn care company, you also benefit from professional expertise. These experts can help you determine exactly what your lawn needs, when, and how frequently. They also provide the products, and (if you hire a full-service company) the labor. Both of these things are typically backed by a guarantee.
