For the most part, there are three main ways to do lawn care: doing everything yourself, going with a subscription company, or employing one of Mount Airy's full-service lawn care companies. When you go the DIY route, you don't pay labor costs, but don't receive any professional guidance. This opens the door to potentially expensive mistakes that you can't foresee.
Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, offer assistance with DIY lawn care. Generally this is in the form of subscription packages which will deliver all the necessary chemicals and equipment for your lawn, based on your location in North Carolina 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.
Would you rather have someone else take care of everything? A full-service company like TruGreen might be the best fit for you. A full-service lawn care company may be the highest-cost option, but these companies handle not only the decision-making but also the manual labor.
There are many services that you might contract a Mount Airy lawn care company for, such as:
No matter what services you need, there is a Mount Airy lawn care company that can handle it. We strongly suggest looking into one or two of the companies on our list above to find which one is best for you.
During Treatments: If you end up choosing a subscription company, you will perform treatments yourself based on the instructions provided by the company. If you've gone with a full-service company like TruGreen, a lawn care professional will come to your home to treat your lawn. Your company may ask that you be home the first time they visit. However, you usually will not need to be present for your lawn care technician to do treatments. You'll be informed by the company (either electronically or in writing) which services they completed and when.
Next, you need to decide if a company provides all of the services you need. When you hire a Mount Airy lawn services company, you may choose to go with one of their fixed plans or one of their "a la carte'' options that lets you pick and choose services.
After narrowing down your list to just a few companies, you'll want to contact them to get an inspection and quote. Utilizing GPS technology, some companies are even able to provide you with an estimate based on how big your lawn is before ever stepping foot on your property. Your estimate will rely mainly on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.
When you employ a Mount Airy lawn care company, there are certain things you can expect before, during, and after services. Some of those things are:
Picking the right lawn care company in Mount Airy will help you feel 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 Mount Airy's best lawn care providers to find the right professional for your needs.
The cost of lawn care in Mount Airy may vary widely based on several factors. First is how big your lawn is. Next is the number and type of services you need. Lastly, there is the schedule on which you want services. Typically, 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. It is a smart idea to get in touch with one or two of the companies from our list of Mount Airy's best lawn care service providers to ask for a quote.
The plan that fits best for you will be based on what you think of the trade-off between money and work. If you decide to 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 a full-service lawn care company in Mount Airy (such as TruGreen), they will handle the labor and logistics, but the up-front cost will be higher. Subscription companies fall somewhere in the middle.
Certain lawn care companies have specific services they specialize in, while other companies offer a variety of services. To find out if a lawn care company in Mount Airy offers services outside of those typically provided, it is best to speak with them directly and ask.
When caring for your Mount Airy lawn, consistency is key. Certain services (such as 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 condition of your lawn when you first begin services, the weather in your part of North Carolina, and the time of year.
Many lawn care providers will list their ingredients on their website. Some (such as Sunday Lawn Care) do use natural ingredients in their products. If you cannot find this information on a company's website, you can contact them and ask.
With some services, like edging and mowing, you will see results immediately. It may take days or weeks to start seeing results from some other services, such as overseeding and weed control. Certain results will also be based on the weather in your part of North Carolina and the time of year.
