How to Pick a Lawn Service Company

Picking a lawn service is a rather tricky task because you spend much time outside and want it to look beautiful. You also know that a single wrong move can be damaging not just to your lawn but to your pocket too.

So do you find the best company for your needs?

What You Want

The very first step is knowing exactly what you need help with. The lawn care industry is diverse - some companies will do every lawn care-related job there is, while others specialize in specific jobs. If you know what you need, it makes trimming down your list of prospects much easier.

Permits and Insurances

First thing a lawn service company needs is a business license, which is only there for tax purposes and has nothing to do with expertise. They should also have safety Insurance, which guarantees that you will be off the hook financially in case an employee of an uninsured company is injured while doing his job in your property. Professional certification implies that company adopts a professional approach to business. The most critical is liability insurance, without which you'll want to search for another prospect.


If you are going to let these people in your yard, you'll have to know more about them. Does the company use a vigorous screening process before hiring people? Also ask if the lawn care service uses their own employees for all services or if they sub-contract out for particular tasks, because this could change the costs as well as experience.


The most obvious question you may have to ask is about the company's experience and training. Ask them - you're not being rude. It can save you some cash, especially considering that somebody who isn't sufficiently experienced or trained can make a costly error.


Quotes usually tell you what the fees are for individual, monthly or weekly visits. If you're given a price, make it a point to read the fine print. If you pick with a larger company, their "introductory prices" likely fall off after a few months, and you will need to pay higher prices because you are tied down to a contract. Choose for bundled services including Lawn Mowing York to help you save some cash.


Reviews from present or past customers can reveal a lot about a company. There are lots of them online, but you have to use a discerning eye. Some reviews are not authentic. For neutrality, you have to keep to third-party review websites.  

Your Gut
