Want to spruce up the appearance and health of your Rock Hill home? Read through our list of best local lawn care service providers.by House Method Local Advisors -
You may have dreams of a healthy, beautiful lawn, but the time and effort required to reach that dream may be off-putting. Rock Hill can get hotter than 82.2% of the U.S., which could cause your lawn to require even more attention in the hotter months.
To aid you, we have put together a list of the best lawn care service providers in and around the Rock Hill area. Read on to find our list of experts and find the one that is best for you.
TruGreen, founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn, services 48 states in the U.S. and is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. The company has a variety of pre-set and flexible plans that can be purchased online. All of the company's services are performed by TruExpert℠ Certified Specialists, and their full programs are backed by their TruGreen Guarantee®.
Sunday Lawn Care uses each customer's individual 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" at the appropriate times throughout the year. With Sunday, you can choose from one of their three subscription plans, all of which are customized for your lawn and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
For the most part, there are three main ways to do lawn care: handling all of it yourself, paying for a subscription company, or hiring one of the full-service lawn care companies in Rock Hill. Tackling lawn care on your own might help you save money at first. However, without the help and guidance of a lawn care professional, there is a chance of you making mistakes that wind up being expensive in the future.
If you want to have expert guidance while still doing your own lawn care, you may like a company like Sunday Lawn Care. These companies offer subscription packages of lawn tools and chemicals, which are shipped to you regularly based on the time of year and where you live in South Carolina. They will take care of the research and planning, although you will still be the one doing the hard work.
Prefer someone who will manage both the mental and physical parts of the job? Consider hiring a full-service company like TruGreen. Although this will likely be your most expensive option, you will get the most comprehensive services, and the pros will take care of the hard work so you don't have to.
Rock Hill's lawn care companies offer a number of services, including:
No matter your needs, there is a Rock Hill lawn care company that can meet them. It is recommended that you contact one or more of the companies on the above list to determine which one is right for you.
When choosing a lawn care services company, you want to know that 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 check whether a company is a member of an organization such as 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 about best practices. You can also search for company reviews and check their website to learn about guarantees that they offer.
Next, you'll need to determine which companies can perform the specific services that you need. Many lawn care service companies in Rock Hill can offer you both fixed plans and "a la carte" options, which let you pick and choose only the services that you need.
After you've narrowed down your list even more, you can begin asking companies about free inspections and getting a service quote. An inspection can happen quickly — some companies can even take a fast estimate of the size of your yard using GPS technology before they visit 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 haven't worked with a Rock Hill lawn care company before (or even if you have) you may be curious about what you should expect. Here are some things to keep in mind:
When you choose a provider from our list of the best lawn care companies in Rock Hill, you guarantee that you're in the hands of experts. Your Rock Hill lawn care provider can clarify all expectations and keep you in the loop throughout the process.
The price of lawn care in Rock Hill will vary based on a handful of factors. One is how big your lawn is, and another is the type of services you need. The cost will also change based on how often your lawn needs to be serviced. Subscription companies will cost less at first, but you will have to do the manual labor yourself. We recommend that you contact a couple of the companies on our list of the top lawn service providers in Rock Hill to get an estimate.
Your best fit will be based on how you view the trade-off between money and work. If you decide to do everything on your own, you don't need to pay for labor, but this option will necessitate the most work from you. If you hire one of Rock Hill's full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they will handle the labor and logistics, but you will need to invest more money up front. Subscription companies are somewhere in between.
The frequency with which your lawn in Rock Hill needs care will be influenced by things like the weather in your part of South Carolina, the condition your lawn is in at the start of services, and the time of year. There are some services (such as mowing) that should be done every one to two weeks, and other services (like pest and weed control) can be done less often. Overall, when it comes to lawn care, consistency is key.
Some services — like tree care and edging — allow you to begin seeing results immediately. With services such as weed control and seeding, it may take days to weeks to see results. The amount of time it takes to see results will also be based on the weather in your part of South Carolina and the time of year.
If the weather is bad, it may affect which services your lawn needs on a certain day, and your technician may need to cancel. If this is the case, they will communicate with you to reschedule as soon as possible. Some lawn care companies in Rock Hill also have mobile apps where you can view and edit your schedule.
