Sometimes, you might want to handle lawn care yourself. For those times when you want some more help, you can use the services of a subscription company, or pay one of Ponca City's full-service lawn care companies. While tackling the project by yourself may seem like the most budget-friendly option, this leaves you open to expensive mistakes. You also will have to take care of your lawn without the expert guidance of a lawn care professional.
Companies like Sunday Lawn Care exist to help with DIY lawn care. These companies provide subscription packages of lawn care equipment and chemicals that are mailed to you as needed. These packages are designed based on the time of year and your location in Oklahoma. This model takes the guesswork out of lawn care; however, you're still doing most of the manual work yourself.
If you'd rather have a company handle all parts of the process, hiring a full-service company like TruGreen is your best bet. While these companies may be more costly than other options, they handle everything, from determining what you need to doing the actual work.
There are a number of different services that the lawn care companies around Ponca City can provide, including:
There is a lawn care company for every need and budget in Ponca City. We recommend contacting one or two from our list above to determine the one that will be best for you.
When it comes time to select a lawn care services company, you will want to verify they are reliable. Before they apply chemicals like pesticides to your lawn, a lawn care professional needs to be licensed through the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture. If you need landscaping services such as mowing and edging, you can look and see if a company meets all of Oklahoma's landscaper licensing requirements. You can also find out if a company belongs to an organization like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Lawn care professionals are not required to be members, but NALP lets landscaping professionals collaborate and share information regarding best practices. Finally, you can read online reviews of the company and learn about their guarantees on their website.
Next, you need to figure out if a particular company provides all of the services you need. Ponca City lawn care companies can provide you with fixed plans or one of their "a la carte'' options where you can pick and choose services.
Once you've figured out which companies offer what you need, you can ask them for a free inspection and estimate. With GPS technology, some companies are able to estimate how big your lawn is and give you a quote over the phone. The total price will be based mainly on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
If you haven't hired a lawn care company in Ponca City before — or even if you have — you may be curious about what to expect. The following are some things to keep in mind:
By choosing a provider from our list of Ponca City's best lawn care companies, you know that you're in the hands of experts. Your Ponca City lawn care provider can outline all expectations and keep you in the know throughout the process.
The cost of lawn care in Ponca City may change based on certain factors. First is your lawn size. Next is the number and type of services you want. Finally, there is how frequently you want services. Generally, a subscription company is less costly 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 the best lawn care service providers in Ponca City to ask for a quote.
Your best fit will be based on how you view the trade-off between money and work. If you decide to do everything yourself, you don't have to pay for labor, but this option requires the most work on your part. If you employ one of Ponca City's full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they will handle the labor and logistics, but you will pay more money. Subscription companies are generally somewhere in between.
Pets should stay inside during lawn treatments, whether you've hired someone or are doing it yourself. Full-service companies will tell you when it is safe for your pets to be on your lawn again. If you are getting products from a subscription company, the company should provide this information with all of their products.
There are some lawn care providers (such as Sunday Lawn Care) that use products made with natural ingredients. Many companies explain what ingredients they use on their website, and you can also contact a company directly to ask for a list.
Some services — like tree care and mowing — allow you to begin seeing results right away. With services like weed control and fertilization, it may take days to weeks to see results. The amount of time it takes to see results will also depend on the time of year and the weather in your part of Oklahoma.
If there is unexpected bad weather, it may change which services are appropriate for a certain day, and your company may need to cancel. If this is the case, they will communicate with you to reschedule as soon as possible. Some Ponca City lawn care companies also have mobile apps where you can view and adjust your schedule.
