TruGreen was founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn and currently operates in 48 states. The company is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. They have a large variety of pre-set and flexible plans that can be purchased online.

Sunday Lawn Care uses soil and climate data to deliver "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.

When there is lawn care to be done, if you don't want to do everything yourself you can go with either a subscription company or one of Bluffton's full-service lawn care companies. If you elect to handle everything on your own, you might initially save some money. However, you'll give up the expert advice and guidance that can help prevent expensive mistakes.
Some companies, such as Sunday Lawn Care, provide assistance to supplement your DIY lawn care. Generally this is in the form of subscription packages which contain all the necessary chemicals and equipment for your lawn, depending on your location in South Carolina and the time of year. These companies offer a good deal of guidance with lawn care, but you still have to do all the labor yourself.
Prefer to have someone else handling 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 just the decision-making but also the manual labor.
There are a variety of services for which you might use a lawn care company in Bluffton, such as:
No matter what kind of services you require, there is a Bluffton lawn care company for the job. We recommend looking into a couple of the companies listed above to discover which one is best for you.
When you choose a lawn care services company, you will want to verify they are reliable. If they are going to apply chemicals like pesticides to your lawn, a technician needs to be licensed through the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. If you are hiring for landscaping services such as edging and mowing, check to see if a company meets all of South Carolina's landscaper licensing requirements. You can also learn whether a company belongs to an organization like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Membership is not mandatory, but NALP allows landscaping professionals to collaborate and share information on best practices. Finally, you can search for company reviews and browse their website to learn more about the guarantees they offer.
Next, you need to decide if a particular company offers all of the services you need. When hiring lawn care services in Bluffton, you may choose to go with one of the company's fixed plans or one of their "a la carte'' options where you can pick and choose your services.
The next step is to get an inspection and quote. Even without visiting your property, some companies might be able to make an estimate with the help of GPS technology. This estimate will be influenced by the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
If you haven't worked with a Bluffton lawn care company before (or even if you have) you might have some questions about what you should expect. The following are some things to keep in mind:
Selecting a good lawn care company in Bluffton can help you be confident and well-informed when it comes to all of the work that needs to be done. It is in your best interest to speak with one of the companies on our list of Bluffton's best lawn care providers to learn about their services and decide if they are right for you.
The amount you pay for lawn care in Bluffton may vary widely based on certain factors. First is the size of your lawn. Next is the number and kind of services you need. Last but not least, there is how frequently you want services. Generally, a subscription company will be cheaper than a full-service company, but you will have to do the work yourself. It is recommended that you contact one or two of the companies from our list of the best lawn care service providers in Bluffton to get a quote.
The amount of money you want to spend and how much work you want to do will both influence what type of lawn care is the best match for you. Hiring one of Bluffton's full-service lawn care companies such as TruGreen will be the priciest, but will also require you to perform the least manual labor. On the other hand, handling everything on your own will cost the least amount of money, but will require the most hard work and planning. Subscription companies fall in between these other options.
Some lawn care companies have specific specialties, while other companies offer more of a variety of services. To learn if a lawn care company in Bluffton offers services outside of the ones often provided, it is best to contact them directly and ask.
Year-round, you should be completing weed and pest control, aeration and fertilization, and tree and shrub care as needed. During the warmer months, you should think about tackling soil care and seeding/overseeding. In the cooler months, you may want to winterize your lawn. The perks of working with a lawn care company in Bluffton include receiving expert help finding the schedule that is best for you and your lawn.
There are some lawn care providers (such as Sunday Lawn Care) that use products made with natural ingredients. Many companies have a list of ingredients that they use on their website, and you can also reach out to a company directly to ask for a list.
Going with a lawn services company — either full-service or subscription — will help make sure the job is done correctly, and will save you money down the road. When you use a lawn care company, you also benefit from professional expertise. These experts will explain to you exactly what your lawn needs, when, and how frequently. These companies also provide the products, and (if you hire a full-service company) the labor. Both of these things are normally backed by guarantees.
