Just because spring isn’t officially here yet doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be planning for your lawn care needs. Once the snow is gone and the temperatures start to rise, there will be a mad dash by North Shore homeowners to schedule their lawn care services for this year.
So, don’t be one of the ones running around at the last minute trying to find a reputable local service at a good price. Securing your lawn care services early is not just good planning, it has some major benefits as well!
You Save Money
Most lawn care companies offer special rates and/or incentives if you sign up before spring. If you wait until the last minute a lot of promotional offers will have expired as companies are already out treating lawns and in some cases into their second round of treatments. At that point, you have most likely missed your window to get their special promotion.
You Get What You Need
Every North Shore lawn care company puts down a pre-emergent herbicide in early spring (well, they should) to prevent crabgrass and broadleaf weeds. If you are busy running around comparing quotes, getting testimonials, figuring out which service is best for you, you may miss this window.
This is important for two reasons. First, without that protection your lawn is susceptible to being overtaken by crabgrass and weeds over the course of the season. Second, most lawn companies offer a crabgrass and weed protection guarantee but that is only good if you sign up for their full program and receive their pre-emergent application. If you miss that treatment, you may have to pay for curative herbicide treatments to fight all the weeds and crabgrass you see on your lawn.

Why You Should Go Local
No one knows lawns in the North Shore like a locally owned and operated company. You might think, even the national guys have local technicians. That is true but their lawn program is NOT designed for the types of lawns in the North Shore.
Most of the national or regional providers have a one product fits all type program which means you get the same products put down on our lawn as someone in say, Tennessee, gets on their lawn which has a completely different soil composition.
Smaller, local companies also value their customers more, so you are more likely to get better customer service by your technician and office staff with a local company. There’s a lot of competition out there so most local lawn companies rely on customer retention year over year to stay profitable whereas the big guys just spend tons of money advertising every year to replace customers they lose.
So save yourself the headache of being stressed out trying to find someone at the last minute and then settling on the big brand name guy because it’s easy, just to be disappointed with their products and service and end up switching to a local company later in the season anyway.
Do some looking around now to find a local lawn care service in the North shore before spring. It will save you money, ensure you get the products and services you need for the season, and most of all save you from a big headache later on!
