If you take care of your own lawn, odds are you have contemplated using professional lawn care services. We have all been there and felt skeptical at first, but the benefits of professional lawn care are simply too good and too numerous to ignore. At Tuxedo Yard Care, we understand the value of professional services, and we hope you feel the same after reading this article.
Lawns that are not tended to properly can easily develop all sorts of issues that turn lovely properties into neighborhood eyesores. Without consistent mowing, routine watering, precise fertilization, and many other important lawn care services, your grass will struggle to attain the lush look we all love to see. A professional lawn care company will know exactly what your turf needs for thick, green growth.
Having professional services provided throughout the year is the best way to increase the curb appeal of your lawn and yard, which will inevitably lead to an increase in property value! When it comes time to put your home on the market, or even when you are simply entertaining a few friends in the backyard, you will be happy you chose the pros.
Experience & Expertise
There is no substitute for experience if you are looking for a healthy and attractive lawn. Many things can go wrong during inexperienced lawn care, from bodily injury to turf damage. For example, simply cutting the grass too short or watering for five extra minutes than you should could lead to dead grass and invading weeds in no time! Considering what a game of inches lawn care truly is, trusting an experienced service provider is never a bad idea.
It may seem like an exaggeration, but the slightest misstep or misunderstanding of lawn care practices can create widespread damage to your lawn that will take a lot of time and money to repair. The following are just a few examples of the critical knowledge any professional service provider will possess:
- How tall your grass should be
- How often mowing is needed
- Amount/type of fertilizer to use
- When to apply fertilizer
- How much to water
- When to water
- When or if aeration is needed
- When or if seeding is needed
A big reason people are hesitant to utilize professional lawn care is the perceived cost of it. While it is true that pulling your own lawn mower out of your garage is virtually free, the costs start adding up the second you start the engine. Mowers need more maintenance the more they are used. If blades are not kept sharp, grass becomes damaged. Damaged grass attracts disease and pests that require costly products to effectively treat, not to mention the cost of fertilizers and an increased water bill.
Instead of risking damage to your lawn and shouldering all of this financial burden, why not call a professional lawn care company? Trustworthy service providers, such as Tuxedo Yard Care, will promise transparent and easy pricing with satisfaction guaranteed, so you can rest assured that you have paid for only the results you want!
Equipment & Products
Even one of the smaller lawn care providers will typically have access to expensive equipment and products that the general public does not have. For example, the average homeowner does not necessarily have a core aerator in their garage, but aeration is a service that could potentially transform your lawn into a lush oasis. Professional results can only be obtained with professional equipment and experience.
Products like fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides come in a number of varieties. Applying the wrong product at the wrong time can have disastrous results, and a simple misreading of label instructions can lead to you killing your grass. Professional lawn care companies have the highest-quality products on-hand, and they know when and how they need to be applied.
If your at-home lawn care has become more of a chore lately and less of a pleasure, it may be time to let a professional service take over. Lawn care often feels like an unwanted obligation, especially if your grass struggles to grow year after year. Unfortunately, HOA standards and municipal regulations do make lawn care mandatory at your home, but that should not mean that you have to spend less time doing the things you love.
Guess what professional lawn care providers love doing… providing care to your lawn! Lawn care companies go into business because they are passionate about landscaping, but that doesn’t mean that everyone feels the same way. Rather than daydreaming about bike rides or beach days while reluctantly mowing the lawn, you should be doing those things you enjoy and letting the pros do what they enjoy.
Safety & Liability
If you have ever mowed over a rock that shot out from the mower deck, you know how dangerous lawn care can occasionally become. Lawn mowers turn solid objects into dangerous projectiles that can harm both property and people. Another common safety concern is the toxicity of lawns after pesticides or herbicides are applied. The last thing you want is for a routine lawn care task to result in bodily harm.
Professionally licensed and trained technicians will help ensure that your lawn care is performed as safely as possible. Knowing how to efficiently perform potentially hazardous tasks while minimizing the risk of injury is a benefit you can not afford to miss out on. Reputable companies will always cover the cost of any accidental damage they cause, which is an invaluable benefit of calling in the professionals.
