What To Expect From Your Lawn Mowing Service Company

Choosing a lawn mowing service company can be quite challenging.  The options almost seem endless between well established companies, small growing companies, startup companies and even the neighbor kid down the block who is trying to make some extra cash. 

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.

  1. It’s interesting to me that you suggest talking to at least 3 or 4 companies before making a decision on who to hire. Is this so that you can compare prices between companies in order to ensure you’re not overspending? I’m looking at hiring someone to take care of my lawn, so I’d be curious to know.

    Finley, not all lawn mowing companies are the same. I would compare companies not only for pricing but also to see what type of equipment they have. You may run into a company online that looks bigger than it is only to find out they use push mowers and are a start up. You also want to see what other types of services they offer. Usually, consumers are interested in keeping most of the lawn care services with 1 company instead of having to write check to multiple companies for all the different services their lawn requires.

  3. It’s cool to learn more about lawn maintenance companies. We want to get one to come and mow and mulch our yard. Yard work is my least favorite chore, so I could use some professional help.

  4. After moving into our new home, my fiance and I decided that we were interested in getting a lawn mowing service. We have never had one before and we want to make sure we know what we are getting ourselves into. I like what you said about expecting to get advice and professional insights which will help us a lot.

  5. Happy with your service. Highly recommended.

    Thank you Jane.

  7. Thank you for all this great information about choosing lawn care! One thing that really stood out to me is that you say to see if they offer a free estimate. It would be nice to know they will come look at your yard and see what they can do.

    You are welcome.

  9. Adrian Jones says:

    It’s great you mentioned research as a part of looking for a reputable lawn care service since they’re the ones who’ve been doing it for years and they should have more than enough experience taking care of other peoples’ lawns. When it comes to hiring out their services one should always consider the fact that they should have the appropriate supplies in order to be able to do their job right. While I haven’t the need to hire out lawn services yet, at least I now know what to do if I would be requiring their services in the future: ask around and research for the best options!
