Tips For Hiring A Lawn Care Company

Hiring a lawn care professional can be an intimidating task.

Technician knocking on doorNot only will the company be responsible for the health of your lawn but they may also be around your house while you’re away. Keeping your family safe is important. Here are some tips on how to find a reputable lawn care professional in your area:

  1. Ask for recommendations from your neighbors—chances are good they’ll be a quality company.
  2. Research what companies service your area through a Google or Facebook search. Be sure to check out review sites like Angie’s List, Yelp, and to read peer reviews on those companies, too.
  3. Make sure the lawn care company is licensed and insured to do business in your state.
  4. Soil Test KitCall around and ask each lawn care company what it is that sets them apart. Rather than shopping on price alone, try and see the whole picture of what each company offers in their service packages.
  5. Avoid quick fixes or "miracle doctors". Your lawn is a complex micro-eco-system and it may take time to shift an unhealthy lawn to a healthy one.
  6. Does the company take soil tests? Are regular inspections of the lawn performed to make sure unnecessary products aren’t being applied? If one or both of these types of tests aren’t being done, you may be paying for services your lawn doesn’t need.
  7. Canoe in lawnIf you live near waterways or in a state with a zero-phosphorus law you should consider more environmentally friendly options. Try searching for an organic-based company in your area specializing in phosphorus free lawn care.
  8. Ask about the billing and contract system. Try to find a company that doesn’t require a signed contract. That way, if you’re not satisfied you may cancel at any time. Note: certain states (like New York) may require all companies to have signed contracts.

Hiring a lawn care service doesn’t have to be complicated. If you follow these eight steps you should be able to find yourself a quality lawn care professional.

My lawn is beautiful.  It has never looked this good.  It looks like lush green velvet.  We only had one dandelion this spring and it was on the edge of our property, so it must have been the neighbor’s!

Jennifer L. Lloyd – Bear, DE

For over 22 years, NaturaLawn of America has been creating naturally beautiful lawns that are safer for you, your family, pets and the environment.  Of course our satisfied customers say its best!
In less than a year, my lawn has gone from one of the worst on the block to among the best.  This is quite an accomplishment considering we have well water and, therefore, never water the lawn.  The  service is also top notch – friendly, knowledgeable and always willing to explain why they’re doing what they’re doing.

Stewart Kaufman – Southbury, CT

NaturaLawn of America has cared for my lawns now for 10 years (2 houses) and I am completely satisfied with your company.  My service technician is friendly, caring and knowledgeable.  I’m happy with the results, how you care for my lawn and the prices you charge – happy enough that I recommend you to others and I tear up ads from competitors without even reading them.
My husband and I are currently acquiring a house in New Hampshire.  There is no question that I will want NaturaLawn of America service at that house.  It is a true pleasure to work with a “national” company that treats their customers in a local business manner.

I’m just dropping you a note to let you know that we are very pleased with your lawn service, the way we are treated and the beautification of our lawn.  Many families have seen our lawn and are very impressed by the way it looks.  They are even more impressed that you are an organic-based company and use 85% less chemicals and pesticides.  We have referred many of our friends and neighbors and will continue to refer people as the opportunity arises.

Jack & Sherrie Decker – Plainview, MN

Our lawn is beautiful.  Thank you for the great results AND for protecting my family and the environment from unnecessary chemicals and pesticides.  It’s nice to have a lawn care company that is concerned about my lawn, my family and the environment.  When people are looking for a healthy, nice lawn, friendly service AND a safer lawn care option, I highly recommend they call NaturaLawn of America.

Pete Plimmer – Wilmington, DE

You are doing a great job! We are glad we switched to NaturaLawn of America and are spreading the word about the super job you do.

Steve Pfannenstein – Rockville, MN

I wanted to write and let you know how pleased I am with NaturaLawn of America.  I had never used a lawn service before.  I’m against putting more chemicals into the environment, so I decided to see what you could do organically.  My lawn was 1 ½ years old – builder grade seed on builder soil! It was a lawn in need of some help, but I didn’t know how wonderful it could look.
Two days ago, my neighbor (who used one of the top chemical lawn companies) sounded a little baffled and asked what I do to my lawn – It looks like a carpet!  We just smiled and said “NaturaLawn of America”.  That’s when I took a good look at my lawn and everyone else’s - our lawn is thick and green.  Despite the recent drought, despite our lack of attention to our lawn, and despite its humble beginnings, it is a magnificent piece of work.

Paul & Doris Pavlichek – Mount Airy, MD

This is our second year with NaturaLawn of America and I can’t say how much we appreciate your work. The yard is awesome!
