Want to improve the look of your lawn, but aren't sure where to begin? Let Gresham's top lawn care service providers handle all of the dirty work for you.by House Method Local Advisors -
Everyone would like to have a lush, healthy lawn, but few look forward to the time and effort required to maintain one. In Gresham, there are also the hot temperatures to plan around, which will likely increase the amount of care your lawn needs.
To help get your lawn in its best shape ever, we've assembled a list of Gresham's top lawn care service providers. Scroll down for our list, which will help you choose the right provider for your lawn.
TruGreen, founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn, services 48 states in the U.S. and is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. 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 their three subscription plans, all of which are customized to your individual lawn and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
Don't have the time or experience to tackle lawn care on your own? Consider signing up with a subscription lawn care company, or reach out to one of Gresham's full-service lawn care companies. While doing everything yourself may seem like the cheapest option, this leaves the possibility of expensive mistakes open. You also will be working without expert guidance from a lawn care professional.
A company like Sunday Lawn Care can help remove some of the guesswork from the process. These kinds of companies will send you a subscription package of lawn care chemicals and equipment. They decide what your lawn needs and when, depending on the season and where you live in Oregon. However, you will still need to make time to do the manual labor.
If you'd rather have a company take care of everything, hiring a full-service company like TruGreen is the solution you need. Although companies like this may be more expensive than other options, they handle the whole process, from determining what is needed to doing the actual work.
There are a number of different services that Gresham's lawn care companies can provide, including:
For any kind of need, there is a Gresham lawn care company that can fill it. We suggest getting in touch with at least one of the companies from our above list to make sure you get the right one for you.
It is important to choose a reliable lawn care services company. A technician who is going to apply chemicals like pesticides to your lawn must be licensed through the Oregon Department of Agriculture. If they are going to be performing landscaping services (such as tree and shrub care), they will have to meet all of the landscaper licensing requirements for Oregon. A company might also belong to an organization like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). NALP membership is not mandatory, but the association lets companies collaborate and share information on best practices. Finally, you can browse a company's website to see what kind of guarantees they offer, and read online reviews.
After you've determined the best companies near you, you'll need to figure out which ones offer the specific combination of services you need. Many Gresham lawn care companies offer both fixed plans and "a la carte" options that allow you to make your own lawn care package.
Next, you'll want to get an inspection and quote. Even before coming out to your property, some companies are able to provide an estimate by using GPS technology. This estimate will be determined by the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
If you haven't hired a Gresham lawn care company before (or even if you have) you might wonder what to expect. The following are some things to keep in mind:

The cost of lawn care in Gresham may change based on certain factors. First is your lawn size. Next is the kind and number of services you need. Last but not least, there is the frequency with which you want services. In most cases, a subscription company will be cheaper than a full-service company, but you'll be responsible for taking care of the work yourself. It is a smart idea to get in touch with at least one of the companies from our list of the best lawn care service providers in Gresham to get a quote.
The amount of money that you are willing to spend and the amount of work you are willing to do will both affect the lawn care model that is best for you. Hiring one of Gresham's full-service lawn care companies such as TruGreen will cost the most, but also will require the least work on your part. Conversely, doing everything on your own will cost the least amount of money, but will require the most planning and hard work. Subscription companies fall in between the other options.
When caring for your Gresham lawn, consistency is key. There are services like mowing that you'll want done every one to two weeks. Some services — like pest and weed control — can be done less often. Things that might affect your lawn care schedule include the weather in your part of Oregon, the condition of your lawn when you first begin services, and the time of year.
Pets should be kept inside during lawn treatments, whether you or professionals are doing the application. Full-service companies will let you know when you can allow your pets to be on your lawn again. If you use a subscription company, they should provide this information on or with all of their products.
Some services — such as edging and tree care — allow you to notice the results immediately. With services like weed control and seeding, you may need to wait a few days to a few weeks to see results. The amount of time it takes to see results will also be based on the time of year and the weather in your part of Oregon.
