With so many choices, how do you know what lawn mowing service company is right for you?
When considering a lawn mowing service company, you need to consider how well you want your yard to be maintained. If you are simply looking for somebody to stop by once a week, cut the lawn and be on their way, the kid down the block may be the right choice for you.
However, if you are looking for a professionally well-kept lawn that is mowed, weed whipped and the debris is cleaned up, you are going to need to hire a company with all the tools. Well established, small and startup companies are going to be the best choices in this scenario.
Finally, if you are looking to have the greenest lawn on the block, you are going to want to hire a lawn mowing service company that does more than just mowing. Check with well-established and small growing companies who provide weed control, bush trimming and many other services alongside their lawn mowing services.
Once You Hire A Lawn Mowing Service Company, What Should You Expect?
Besides the simple expectation of having your lawn mowed on a regular schedule, your personal lawn mower should have a good understanding of what your lawn is telling him. After all, your personal lawn mower is on your lawn, and plenty of others, every week so they should be able to tell what is happening with your lawn.
Your personal lawn mower should be able to make recommendations for fertilizer, weed control, watering schedules and more. The more detailed your lawn mower is, the healthier your lawn will be and the happier you will be. Once you land a detail lawn mower who makes the right recommendations, you will want to hang on to them so be sure to get their business card just in case.
Start Researching Lawn Mowing Service Companies
I think it goes without saying, but before you hire just any company be sure to talk to 3 or 4 companies and ask them questions about what services they offer to ensure they will be able to offer you every service you think your lawn may need and then some.
Once you have narrowed it down to those companies who have the services you need, get a free estimate from each one for all the services they offer.
Finally, head on over to the internet and check for reviews left on Google and Facebook. The lawn care business is very competitive and you need to make sure you are hiring a reputable company.
It’s official… spring has finally arrived in Minneapolis and this means you will start to see lawn mowing crews pulling their trailers on highways and city streets near you. In today’s blog, we are going to talk a bit about ways you can keep your dedicated lawn mower looking forward to mowing your lawn.
First Mow of the Season
If you’re a new customer, the first mow of the season is the best time to try and meet your lawn mower to go over the quirks of your lawn such as boundaries, special instructions or to let them know of any hidden pipes that may be sticking up out of the ground. This meeting ensures that your lawn mower will know what expectation you have of them throughout the year and will result in a relationship where everybody is happy.
If you’re not able to meet your lawn mower when they arrive at your property, you may want to consider marketing items in your lawn with flags. Be sure to leave a note with the office so they can include it on the job details so your lawn mower knows what the markers mean and can remove the markers for you after they mow your lawn.
How Weather Effects the Schedule
Mother nature can be brutal on lawn mowers throughout the mowing season. Traditionally, our lawn mowers at Peter Doran Lawn like to stay on a schedule and mow your lawn on the same day each week. However, mother nature can throw weeks at us where rain keeps us from being able to stay on schedule. If it does rain during the week, your lawn may end up getting mowed a day later or at a later time of the day if your lawn mower is working hard to catch up throughout the week.
Heat also plays a role in how much your lawns your lawn mower can mow during a week. On those really hot days, heat exhaustion can set in and you may want to keep an eye on your lawn mower if you are around the house while the mow your lawn. Additionally, since coolers only keep things cold for so long, you can earn “brownie points” from your lawn mower by offering them a cold cup of water or lemonade!
As the lawn mowing season gets into full swing, we look forward to servicing you and your lawn in the most professional way possible.
