Everyone would like to have a healthy, beautiful lawn, but many dread the time and effort required to maintain one. In Norfolk, where temperatures can get higher than 65.6% of the country, your lawn may need a little more TLC during the warmer months.
To help get your lawn in its best shape ever, we've assembled a list of the best lawn care service providers in Norfolk. Scroll down to discover our list and choose the right provider for you.
TruGreen, founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn, now operates in 48 U.S. states. The company is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. They have a large 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 three different subscription plans, all of which are customized for your lawn and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
Don't feel up to handling lawn care all on your own? Explore using a subscription lawn care company, or employ one of the full-service lawn care companies in Norfolk. While handling everything on your own may seem like the least expensive option, doing so leaves the possibility of expensive mistakes open. You also will be working without expert guidance from a lawn care professional.
Companies like Sunday Lawn Care are designed to provide assistance with DIY lawn care. They offer subscription packages of lawn care chemicals and equipment that are sent to you as needed. These packages are assembled based on the time of year and your location in Virginia. This takes the guesswork out of lawn care; however, you still have to apply everything yourself.
If you would like to have a company manage the whole process, hiring a full-service company like TruGreen is the solution you need. Although companies like this may be more costly than other options, they manage every step of the way, from determining what you need to doing the actual work.
Your local Norfolk lawn care companies offer many different kinds of services, including:
There is a lawn care company for every need and budget in Norfolk. It is a good idea to contact one or two of the ones on our list above to determine the one that will be best for you.
During Treatments: If you end up choosing a subscription company, you will be the one to treat your lawn based on the instructions provided by the company. If you're using a full-service company like TruGreen, their technicians will come to your home to treat your lawn. Your company might ask that you be home the first time they come to your house. However, you usually will not need to be home for lawn care treatment. You'll be informed by the company (either in writing or electronically) which services they completed and when.
Next, you need to determine if the company offers all of the services you need. When selecting a Norfolk lawn care services company, you might opt for one of their fixed plans or one of their "a la carte'' options that allows you to pick and choose your services.
After narrowing down your list even more, you can reach out to companies and ask about free inspections and getting a service quote. You often won't need to wait long for an inspection — some companies are even able to quickly estimate the size of your yard via GPS before they come out to your home. From there, they should be able to provide an estimate based on the specific services you need and the size of your lawn.
When you employ a Norfolk lawn care company, there are things you can expect before, during, and after treatments. Some of those things are:
Selecting the right lawn care company in Norfolk will help you feel confident and in-the-know regarding all of the work that needs to be done. We recommend reaching out to one of the companies from our list of Norfolk's best lawn care providers to find the right professional for your needs.
The cost of lawn care in Norfolk will be based on several factors. One is your lawn's size, and another is the type and number of services that you want. The cost will also change based on how frequently your lawn needs servicing. Subscription companies will be less expensive initially, but you will have to do the manual labor yourself. We suggest you reach out to a couple of the companies on our list of Norfolk's top lawn service providers for an estimate.
The amount of money you're willing to spend and the amount of work you are willing to do will both have an effect on the type of lawn care that is best for you. Hiring a full-service Norfolk lawn care company such as TruGreen will cost the most money, but also will require the least manual labor on your part. Conversely, doing everything yourself will be the least expensive, but will necessitate the most planning and hard work. Subscription companies are somewhere in between the other options.
The frequency with which your lawn in Norfolk needs care will depend on things like the time of year, the condition your lawn is in at the start of services, and the weather in your part of Virginia. Some services — like mowing — should be done every two weeks or so, and other services, such as pest and weed control, can be done less often. Generally, when it comes to lawn care, consistency is key.
Many lawn care providers will explain their ingredients on their website. Some (such as Sunday Lawn Care) do use natural ingredients in their products. If you cannot find this information on a company's website, you can get in touch with them and ask.
With some services, like tree care and edging, you will see immediate results. It may be days to weeks before you start seeing results from certain other services, such as overseeding and weed control. Your results will also depend on the weather in your part of Virginia and the time of year.
