You may have dreams of a healthy, green lawn, but the degree of effort required to achieve that dream may make it seem far away. You could feel overwhelmed by the amount of attention that your Bellevue lawn needs, or be concerned about the money and time it will need.
To help keep your lawn beautiful, we've compiled a list of Bellevue's top lawn care service providers. Read below for our list, and choose the best provider for you.
TruGreen, founded in 1974 under the original name ChemLawn, services 48 states in the U.S. and is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. Their variety of pre-set and flexible plans 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 uses 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" to your door at various times throughout the year. Sunday customers are able to choose from one of three different subscription plans, all of which are customized to your individual lawn and backed by the company's Sunday guarantee.
There are three different ways you can do lawn care: doing everything yourself, paying for a subscription company, or employing one of the full-service lawn care companies that operate in Bellevue. If you opt to do everything yourself, you could initially save some money. However, what you'll be missing is the expert advice and guidance that could help avoid expensive mistakes.
Companies like Sunday Lawn Care are designed to assist with DIY lawn care. Companies like this offer subscription packages of lawn care equipment and chemicals that are sent to you as needed. These packages are put together based on your location in Washington and the time of year. These companies take the guesswork out of lawn care; however, you're still doing most of the manual work yourself.
If you would prefer to have a company handle all parts of the process, hiring a full-service company like TruGreen is the solution you need. While these companies may be more expensive than other options, they take the lead every step of the way, from determining what you need to doing the actual work.
There are many services for which you might need a lawn care company in Bellevue, such as:
No matter what type of services you want, there is a Bellevue lawn care company that fits the bill. We strongly suggest looking into one or more of the companies listed above to discover which one is the best fit.
During Treatments: If you end up choosing a subscription company, you will perform treatments yourself based on the instructions provided by the company. If you've hired a full-service company like TruGreen, their technicians 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. You'll be informed by the company (either electronically or in writing) which services they completed and when.
Next, you'll want to determine which Bellevue lawn care companies have the specific services you need. A company may have both plans and "a la carte" options where you can pick and choose from a list of services.
After narrowing down your list even further, you can begin asking companies about getting a free inspection and quote for services. An inspection can happen quickly — some companies can even take a fast estimate of the size of your yard with GPS before they visit 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.
When you're hiring a Bellevue lawn care company, you might wonder what you should expect. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Choosing the right lawn care company in Bellevue can help you be confident and well-informed when it comes to all of the work being done on your lawn. We suggest getting in touch with one of the companies from our list of the best lawn care providers in Bellevue to find the right professional for your needs.
The cost of lawn care in Bellevue varies based on a number of factors. First is your lawn size. Next is the type and number of services you need. Lastly, there is how often you want services. In most cases, a subscription company will be less costly than a full-service company, but you'll be responsible for taking care of the work yourself. It is a smart idea to get in touch with one or two of the companies from our list of the best lawn care service providers in Bellevue for a quote.
The best plan for you will depend on how you view the trade-off between money and work. If you do everything yourself, you won't have to pay for labor, but this option requires the most work on your part. If you employ one of Bellevue's 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 between.
In the warmer months, you will want to think about doing seeding, soil care, and overseeding. In the cooler months, you may decide to think about winterization. Throughout the year, you should be thinking about tree and shrub care, weed and pest control, and aeration and fertilization as needed. One of the benefits of going with a Bellevue lawn care company is that they can help you choose the best schedule for you and your lawn.
Pets should stay inside during lawn treatments, whether you or professionals are doing the application. If you hire a full-service company, they will let you know when pets can safely be on your lawn again. If you use a subscription company, the company should provide this information with all of their products.
Some services — such as edging and tree care — allow you to see results right away. With services like fertilization and seeding, it may take days to weeks to see results. The amount of time it takes to see results will also depend on the weather in your part of Washington and the time of year.
