Supporting local businesses is a mantra these days and there are many good reasons to do so. By hiring a local professional lawn care company, you are keeping your money in the local area benefiting employees and their families and potentially creating more jobs in your community and surrounding areas. While there are likely many options in your area for lawn care companies, you need to define what you expect a lawn care company to do for you that will make it “The Best.”
Are you looking for the lowest price or the best products or customer service? Do you want a company that specializes in lawn care or are you looking for one that offers a variety of services like tree and shrub and/or pest control? There are several ways to find a company that will fit the bill for your lawn care needs in the North Shore.
Talking to folks you know who use different lawn services can be a great place to start. You can get firsthand information on pricing, quality of service, responsiveness to customer questions or complaints and you can see the results in their lawn.
Keep in mind, the big, national guys have one program for all of their customers. So a homeowner in Texas will get the same kind of lawn program as someone in say, Massachusetts. That may not be the best option for the health of your lawn.
Now, once you have a few names to investigate, the internet should be your next stop.
One of the simplest ways out there to check out a lawn care company company is by going to their website. On their site you can find what services they offer, the history of the company, key personnel and most importantly, customer reviews and ratings.
A lot of companies run specials on their websites such as discounts for signing up or some type of free treatment. Most if not all will offer a free estimate on their lawn care services.
Most companies these days have a social media presence. It is a great way for them to stay in contact with their customer base and keep them updated on what the company is seeing on lawns so you can be aware as well and call if you suspect a problem.
It is a great place to check out customer reviews, other readers’ comments, and the company’s response to them. Many companies also use social media to pass on lawn care tips to their customers.
Making A Decision
Once you find a few companies that look promising to you, get quotes over the phone. Hiring a lawn care company isn’t just about fertilizer and weed control, it's about service. Some companies advertise on price and may offer a discount on the first treatment and then the remaining treatments are at a higher rate. So be careful of the ones that care only about selling you on price. Remember the old saying, "you get what you pay for."
Also remember that the sooner you hire a professional lawn care company the sooner you will see results. We're in the fall growing season and there is no better time to start treating our lawn than now!
