TruGreen was founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn and currently operates in 48 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 TruGreen 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 three different subscription plans, all of which are customized to your property and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
Sometimes, you might want to handle lawn care yourself. For those times when you want some more help, you can pay for a subscription company, or employ one of Great Falls' full-service lawn care companies. If you opt to do everything yourself, you will save money initially. However, you miss out on expert advice and guidance that can help prevent expensive mistakes.
A company like Sunday Lawn Care can help take the guesswork out of the process. Companies like this will mail you a subscription package of lawn care chemicals and equipment. They determine what your lawn needs and when, depending on the season and where you live in Virginia. However, you still need to handle the manual labor.
Prefer to have someone else taking care of everything? A full-service company like TruGreen may be best for you. A full-service lawn care company might be the highest-cost option, but they handle not just the decision-making but also the manual labor.
There are a variety of different services that the lawn care companies around Great Falls can provide, including:
There is a lawn care company for every need and budget in Great Falls. We recommend contacting one or two from the above list to discover the one that is best for you.
During Treatments: If you've opted for a subscription company, you will handle all treatments yourself based on the provided instructions. If you've gone with a full-service company like TruGreen, they will come to your home to treat your lawn. Your company may ask that you be home the first time they come to your house. However, you generally do not need to be present for your lawn care technician to do treatments. The company will inform you (either electronically or in writing) which services they completed and when.
Next, you need to determine if a company provides all of the services you need. When hiring lawn care services in Great Falls, 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.
After whittling down your list even further, you can reach out to companies and ask about getting a free inspection and service quote. You often won't need to wait long for an inspection — some companies can even get a quick estimate of the size of your yard with GPS before they come out to your home. From there, they should be able to provide an estimate based on the size of your lawn and the specific services you need.
If you've never hired a lawn care company in Great Falls before (or even if you have) you might wonder what you ought to expect. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Selecting a good Great Falls lawn care company will help you feel confident and in-the-know when it comes to all of the work being done on your lawn. We recommend reaching out to one of the companies on our list of the best lawn care providers in Great Falls to learn about their services and decide if they are right for you.
The price of lawn care in Great Falls will be based on a handful of factors. One is the size of your lawn, and another is the type of services you want. The price will also change based on how often your lawn needs services. Subscription companies will be less expensive up front, but you will have to do the manual labor yourself. We suggest you get in touch with a couple of the companies on our list of the top lawn service providers in Great Falls to get an estimate.
The plan that fits best for you will be dependent on what you think of the trade-off between money and work. If you decide to do everything yourself, you won't need to pay for labor, but this option requires the most work on your part. If you choose to go with one of Great Falls' full-service lawn care companies (such as TruGreen), they will handle all of the labor and logistics, but you will pay more money. Subscription companies fall somewhere in the middle.
When it comes to caring for your Great Falls lawn, consistency is key. Certain services (such as mowing) you'll want done every one to two weeks. Services like pest and weed control can be done less often. Factors that could affect your lawn care schedule include the time of year, the condition of your lawn when you first begin services, and the weather in your part of Virginia.
No matter if you or a lawn care professional are working on your lawn, all pets should be kept inside during the process. If you are getting your products from a subscription company, they should provide pet safety information with their products. A full-service company will tell you when it is safe to let your pets on your lawn following treatment.
Many lawn care companies (such as Sunday Lawn Care) use natural ingredients in their products. Many companies provide lists of ingredients on their website, and you can also contact a company directly to ask them about their ingredients.
If there is unexpected bad weather, it may change which services are appropriate for a certain day, and your company may need to cancel. Should something like this occur, they will contact you to reschedule as soon as possible. Some lawn care companies in Great Falls also have mobile apps where you can see and edit your schedule.
