Sometimes, you might feel comfortable handling lawn care on your own. For those times when you want some more help, you can go with a subscription company, or hire one of the full-service lawn care companies in Greenwood. While handling everything on your own may seem like the cheapest option, doing so leaves the possibility of expensive mistakes open. 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 assist with DIY lawn care. They provide subscription packages of lawn care equipment and chemicals that they send to you as needed. The packages are assembled based on the time of year and your location in South Carolina. These companies take the guesswork out of lawn care; however, you still have to apply everything yourself.
Prefer hiring someone who can take care of both the mental and physical parts of the job? Consider hiring a full-service company like TruGreen. Although this will likely be the priciest 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.
Your local Greenwood lawn care companies offer a variety of services, including:
There is a lawn care company for every need and budget in Greenwood. It is a good idea to contact one or two from our list above to discover which one works best for you.
It is probably important to you to choose a lawn care services company that you can trust. A technician who is going to apply chemicals like pesticides to your lawn must be licensed through the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. If they're going to be helping with landscaping services (such as tree and shrub care), they'll need to meet all of the landscaper licensing requirements for South Carolina. A company may also be a member of an organization like the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Landscapers are not required to be NALP members, but the association helps companies collaborate and share information on best practices. Finally, you can look at a company's website to find out what kind of guarantees they offer, and read online reviews.
Once you've decided on the best companies near you, you'll need to determine which ones can provide the specific combination of services you want. Many lawn care companies in Greenwood offer both fixed plans and "a la carte" options that give you the opportunity to make your own lawn care package.
After you've narrowed down your list even more, you can reach out to companies and ask about getting a free inspection and quote for services. Inspections can be quick and painless — some companies are even able to estimate the size of your yard with GPS before they visit your home. The company will then provide an estimate based on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
When you're planning to hire a Greenwood lawn care company, you might be wondering what you should expect. The following are some things to keep in mind:
If you hire a reliable Greenwood lawn care services company, they can help clarify all expectations and ensure that the process goes smoothly. When you choose a company from our list of Greenwood's best lawn care providers, you ensure that everything is taken care of the right way.
The amount you will pay for lawn care in Greenwood will be based on several factors. One is how big your lawn is, and another is what type of services you need. The price will also depend on how frequently your lawn needs services. Subscription companies will be cheaper at first, but you will need to do the manual labor yourself. We suggest you get in touch with one or two of the companies on our list of the top lawn service providers in Greenwood to get an estimate.
The plan that fits best for you will be based on your views on the trade-off between work and money. If you do everything on your own, you don't have to pay for labor, but this option will necessitate the most work from you. If you employ one of Greenwood's full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they will handle all of the logistics and labor, but you will pay more money. Subscription companies fall somewhere in the middle.
When it comes to taking care of your Greenwood lawn, consistency is key. Some services, like mowing, you'll want done every one or two weeks. Some services — like pest and weed control — can be done less frequently. Things that might affect your lawn care schedule include the weather in your part of South Carolina, the time of year, and the condition of your lawn when you first begin services.
There are certain lawn care companies (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. You can also reach out to a company directly to ask about the ingredients they use.
If there is inclement weather, it may affect which services are appropriate for a certain day, and your servicer may need to cancel. If this happens, they will communicate with you as soon as possible to reschedule. Some lawn care companies in Greenwood also have mobile apps where you can see and edit your schedule.
