You may have dreams of a healthy, beautiful lawn, but the amount of work required to achieve that dream may intimidate you. In Joplin, there are also the hot temperatures to deal with, increasing the amount of care your lawn needs.
To keep your lawn looking beautiful, we've put together a list of Joplin's best lawn care service providers. Read below to find our list and to choose the best provider for you.
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 uses each customer's individual soil and climate data to deliver "custom lawn nutrients, herbicides, pest control, grass seed, bare spot repair, pet spot solutions, garden fertilizer, flower bulbs, and wildflower seeds" at the appropriate times throughout the year. With Sunday, you can choose from one of three different subscription plans, all of which are customized to your individual lawn and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
Sometimes, you might want to handle lawn care yourself. For those times when you want the help of a professional, you can go with a subscription company, or pay one of Joplin's full-service lawn care companies. When you do everything yourself, you don't pay extra labor costs, but don't receive any professional guidance. There is a chance of this resulting in expensive mistakes down the line.
A company like Sunday Lawn Care can help remove some of the guesswork from the process. Companies like this will mail you a regular subscription package of lawn care chemicals and equipment. They determine what your lawn needs and when, depending on your location in Missouri and the time of year. However, you will still need to make time to do the manual labor.
Would you prefer to have someone else take care of everything? A full-service company like TruGreen may be right for you. A full-service lawn care company might be the most expensive option, but full-service companies handle not only the decision-making but also the manual labor.
Joplin's lawn care companies can provide many different types of services, such as:
For any need, there is a Joplin lawn care company that can fill it. We suggest getting in touch with at least one of the companies from the list above to feel confident that you have the right one for you.
When choosing a lawn care services company, you want to make sure they are reliable. If they are going to apply chemicals like pesticides to your lawn, a technician needs to be licensed through the Missouri Department of Agriculture. If you require landscaping services such as edging and mowing, you can look and see if a company meets all of Missouri's landscaper licensing requirements. You can also find out if a company is a member of an organization such as the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). This is not a requirement, but NALP helps landscaping professionals to collaborate and share information regarding best practices. You can also search for company reviews and browse their website to learn more about the guarantees they offer.
Next, you'll want to learn which companies around the Joplin area offer the specific services you need. A company may have both plans and "a la carte" options which allow you to pick and choose from a list of services.
Once you've chosen a company or two, you'll want to go about getting an inspection and quote. With the help of GPS technology, some companies can even give you an estimate based on the size of your yard before they even visit your property. Your estimate will be based mainly on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
If you've never worked with a Joplin lawn care company before — or even if you have — you might be curious about what you should expect. The following are some things to keep in mind:
When you choose a provider from our list of the best lawn care companies in Joplin, you guarantee that you're in the hands of experts. Your Joplin lawn care professional can clarify all expectations and keep you in the loop throughout the process.
The cost of lawn care in Joplin may change based on several factors. First is the size of your lawn. Next is the number and type of services you want. Lastly, there is how often you want services. Generally, a subscription company is going to be cheaper than a full-service company, but using a subscription company means that you need to do the manual labor yourself. We strongly suggest speaking with one or more of the companies from our list of Joplin's best lawn care service providers to get a quote.
The amount of money that you are willing to spend and how much work you plan to do will both influence the lawn care model that is the best match for you. Going with a full-service lawn company in Joplin such as TruGreen will be the most expensive, but also will require the least work from you. Conversely, doing everything yourself will be the least expensive, but will necessitate the most planning and hard work. Subscription companies fall in between these other options.
Certain lawn care companies specialize in specific services, while others provide a wide variety of services. To learn if a Joplin lawn care company offers services outside of the ones normally provided, it is best to contact them directly and ask.
Consistency is key when it comes to caring for your Joplin lawn. Some services, like mowing, you'll want done every one to two weeks. Some 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 Missouri, the condition of your lawn when you first begin services, and the time of year.
There are some lawn care companies (such as Sunday Lawn Care) that use products made with natural ingredients. Many companies provide lists of ingredients on their website. You can also speak with a company directly to ask for a list.
When you pay a professional lawn care services company (either full-service or subscription) you get professional help. The experts at these companies can help determine the kind of care your lawn needs, how often, and when. They also bring or send you all of the needed products. Their products and services often have guarantees. Overall, these companies can guarantee that the job is done well, and likely save you money in the future.
