To help get your lawn in its best shape ever, we've compiled a list of Cornelius' top-rated lawn care service providers. Scroll down to discover our list and choose the right provider for you.

They have a large variety of pre-set and flexible plans that can be purchased online. All of their 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. Customers can choose from one of three different subscription plans, all of which are customized for your lawn and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
Don't want to tackle lawn care all on your own? Consider signing up with a subscription lawn care company, or hire one of Cornelius' full-service lawn care companies. Doing your lawn care on your own could be less expensive at first. However, without the expert guidance of a lawn care professional, there is a chance of you making mistakes that prove costly in the future.
If you want to take some of the guesswork out of lawn care, you can use a company like Sunday Lawn Care. They provide subscription packages of lawn chemicals and tools, which are periodically sent to you depending on the time of year and where you live in North Carolina. The company takes care of the research and planning for you, although you will still be the one doing the hard work.
If you'd rather have a company manage the whole process, hiring a full-service company like TruGreen is your best bet. While they may be more expensive than other options, they take the lead every step of the way, from determining what needs to be done to doing the actual work.
There are a number of services for which you might need a lawn care company in Cornelius, such as:
No matter what type of services you require, there is a Cornelius lawn care company for the job. We recommend looking into one or more of the companies listed above to discover which one is right for you.
It is probably important to you to choose a lawn care services company that you can trust. If you are going to have chemicals like pesticides applied to your lawn, your technician must be licensed through the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. If they are going to be performing landscaping services (such as edging), they will need to meet all of North Carolina's landscaper licensing requirements. A company may also be a member of an organization like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Membership in NALP is generally not a licensing requirement, but the association lets companies collaborate and share information on best practices. Finally, you can read through a company's website to learn about the guarantees they offer, and read online reviews.
Next, you'll need to determine which companies provide the specific services you need. Many lawn care service companies in Cornelius offer both fixed plans and "a la carte" options, where you are able to pick and choose exactly which services you need.
Once you've chosen a company or two, you'll want to contact them to get an inspection and quote. With the help of GPS technology, some companies can even make an estimate based on how big your lawn is before they even visit your property. Your estimate will be based mainly on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.
If you haven't hired a Cornelius lawn care company before (or even if you have) you might wonder what you should expect. The following are some things to keep in mind:

The amount you pay for lawn care in Cornelius may vary widely based on several factors. First is the size of your lawn. Next is the number and type of services you need. Finally, there is how often you want services. Generally, a subscription company is less costly than a full-service company, but you'll be responsible for taking care of the work yourself. We recommend contacting one or two of the companies from our list of Cornelius' best lawn care service providers to get a quote.
Your best fit will depend on how you view the trade-off between money and work. If you do everything on your own, you don't have to pay for labor, but this option will necessitate the most work from you. If you hire one of Cornelius' full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they take care of all of the logistics and labor, but you will need to invest more money up front. Subscription companies fall somewhere in the middle.
Consistency is key when it comes to caring for your Cornelius lawn. Certain services (such as mowing) are best done every one to two weeks. Some services — like pest and weed control — can be done less often. Some possible factors that could influence your lawn care schedule are the weather in your part of North Carolina, the condition of your lawn when you first begin services, and the time of year.
Pets should remain in the house during lawn treatments, whether you or professionals are doing the application. If a full-service company does the application, they will let you know when you can allow your pets to be on your lawn again. If you order products from a subscription company, the company should provide this information along with all of their products.
Some lawn care providers (such as Sunday Lawn Care) use natural ingredients in their products. Many companies explain what ingredients they use on their website. You can also contact a company directly to ask for a list.
