TruGreen, founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn, now operates in 48 U.S. states. The company is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. The company has a 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. When you sign up with Sunday, you will choose from one of three different subscription plans. All of these plans are customized to your property and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
When there is lawn care to be done, if you don't want to handle everything on your own you can go with either a subscription company or one of Cayce's full-service lawn care companies. If you go the DIY route, you may save some money up front. However, you miss out on expert advice and guidance that might help you prevent costly mistakes.
A company like Sunday Lawn Care can help simplify the process. These companies will mail you a subscription package of lawn care equipment and chemicals. They do the work of figuring out what your lawn needs and when, depending on your location in South Carolina and the time of year. However, you will still be the one doing the manual labor.
Prefer to hire a company that will manage both the mental and physical aspects of the work? Consider hiring a full-service company like TruGreen. Although this will likely be your most expensive option, these companies offer the most comprehensive range of services, and the pros will do all the hard work so you don't have to.
There are a number of different services that Cayce's lawn care companies can provide, including:
No matter your needs, there is a lawn care company in Cayce that is able to meet them. We strongly suggest contacting one or more of the companies on our list above to find the perfect one for you.
When choosing a lawn care services company, you will want to verify they are reliable. To be permitted to apply chemicals like pesticides to your lawn, a lawn care professional needs to be licensed through the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. If you need landscaping services such as mowing and edging, you can look and see if a company meets all of South Carolina's landscaper licensing requirements. You can also see if a company is a member of an organization like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). This is not a requirement, but NALP allows landscaping professionals to collaborate and share information on best practices. You can also search for company reviews and browse their website to learn more about the guarantees they offer.
Next, you'll have to determine if a particular company offers the services you need. When hiring lawn care services in Cayce, you may choose to go with one of the company's fixed plans or one of their "a la carte'' options that allows you to pick and choose specific services.
After you've narrowed down your list even more, you can begin asking companies about free inspections and getting a quote for services. Inspections can happen relatively quickly — some companies are even able to quickly estimate the size of your yard with GPS before visiting your home. The company should then be able to provide an estimate based on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.
If you've never hired a Cayce lawn care company before — or even if you have — you might wonder what you should expect. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Picking a good lawn care company in Cayce can help you be confident and knowledgeable regarding all of the work to be done. We suggest getting in touch with one of the companies from our list of Cayce's best lawn care providers to learn about their services and decide if they are right for you.
The cost of lawn care in Cayce will depend on a handful of factors. One is your lawn's size, and another is what type of services you need. The cost will also depend on how often your lawn needs servicing. Subscription companies will be less expensive initially, but you will have to do all of the manual work yourself. We recommend that you contact one or two of the companies from our list of the top lawn service providers in Cayce to obtain an estimate.
The best plan for you will be based on what you think of the trade-off between work and money. If you do everything on your own, you don't need to pay for labor, but this option requires the most work on your part. If you employ one of Cayce's full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they take care of the labor and logistics, but the up-front cost will be higher. Subscription companies fall somewhere in the middle.
In the warmer months, you will want to think about doing seeding, soil care, and overseeding. When it's cooler outside, you may decide to think about winterization. Throughout the year, you will want to handle tree and shrub care, aeration and fertilization, and weed and pest control as needed. One of the benefits of choosing a lawn care company in Cayce is that they can help you discover the schedule that makes the most sense for you and your lawn.
Pets should remain in the house during lawn treatments, whether you've hired someone or are doing it yourself. If you hire a full-service company, they will let you know when you can allow your pets to be on your lawn again. If you order products from a subscription company, the company should provide this information along with all of their products.
There are some lawn care providers (such as Sunday Lawn Care) that use natural ingredients in their products. Many companies list their ingredients on their website, and you can also contact a company directly to ask about the ingredients they use.
Some services — such as edging and mowing — allow you to see results immediately. With services like fertilization and weed control, you may need to wait a few days to a few weeks to see results. The time needed for visible results will also be dependent on the time of year and the weather in your part of South Carolina.
