DIY vs Professional Lawn Care - Which is Better?


Don't have the time or experience to tackle lawn care by yourself? You might look into a subscription lawn care company, or reach out to one of Dayton's full-service lawn care companies. If you go the DIY route, you could initially save some money. However, you'll give up the expert advice and guidance that can help avoid costly mistakes.

If you want to have expert guidance while still doing your own lawn care, you can use a company like Sunday Lawn Care. They offer subscription packages of lawn tools and chemicals, which are shipped to you regularly based on the season and where you live in Ohio. They will take care of the research and planning, although you will still be the one pulling weeds.

If you'd prefer to be completely hands-off, a full-service company like TruGreen is going to be your best bet. This option might be the most pricy, but this is balanced by the benefits: they not only offer custom solutions to all your lawn care headaches, but they take care of all the work.

No matter what kind of services you require, there is a Dayton lawn care company that fits the bill. We strongly suggest looking into one or more of the companies on our list above to determine which one is right for you.

Choosing a Dayton Lawn Care Company


When you need to choose a company, you should first ensure that the one you are choosing is reputable. If a technician will be applying chemicals like pesticides at any point, they will need to be licensed through the Ohio Department of Agriculture. If they are going to be doing landscaping services, such as mowing or edging, you can confirm that they meet all of the landscaper licensing requirements for Ohio. After you have confirmed that a company is licensed, you can check to see if they are a member of an organization such as the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). This is an optional association that helps members collaborate and provides information regarding industry best practices. You can also read reviews online and check the company's website to see what kind of guarantees they offer.

"NALP members have access to industry-leading tools and training to keep you on the cutting edge."

The next step is to figure out which companies provide the specific services you need. Many lawn care service companies in Dayton offer both fixed plans and "a la carte" options, which let you pick and choose which services you want.

After narrowing down your list even further, you can start to contact companies to ask about getting a free inspection and service quote. Inspections can be quick and painless — some companies can even get a quick estimate of the size of your yard using GPS before they visit your home. They can then give you an estimate based on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.

Frequently asked questions for lawn care companies


What is the fee for lawn care in Dayton?

The cost of lawn care in Dayton may vary widely based on certain factors. First is your lawn size. Next is the type and number of services you need. Last but not least, there is how often you want services. In most cases, a subscription company is less expensive than a full-service company, but using a subscription company means that you need to do the manual labor yourself. We recommend contacting one or more of the companies from our list of Dayton's best lawn care service providers to get a quote.

Which type of lawn care is the best fit for me: DIY, a subscription package, or a full-service company?

The plan that fits best for you will depend on your views on the trade-off between money and work. If you do everything yourself, you won't have to pay for labor, but this option is the most work. If you employ a full-service lawn care company in Dayton (such as TruGreen), they take care of the logistics and labor, but the up-front cost will be higher. Subscription companies are generally somewhere in between.

Are there lawn care companies in Dayton that specialize in crabgrass, mulching, gardening, and other services?

There are some lawn care companies that provide a wide variety of services, and there are others that specialize in a small number of practices. If you are wondering whether a lawn care company in Dayton offers a specific service, you can reach out to them directly.

What lawn care services is required in different seasons in Dayton?

In the warmer months, you will want to make sure you do soil care, seeding, and overseeding. When it's cooler outside, you may decide to think about winterization, as well as leaf and snow removal, if necessary. Year-round, you should be thinking about weed and pest control, aeration and fertilization, and tree and shrub care as needed. One of the pros of going with a Dayton lawn care company is that they can help you discover the schedule that works best for you and your lawn.

How long should it take for results to be noticeable following lawn care services?

Some services — such as tree care and mowing — allow you to begin seeing results immediately. With services like overseeding and fertilization, it may take days to weeks to see results. The time needed for visible results will also vary based on the time of year and the weather in your part of Ohio.
