When it comes to your home’s property value, nothing increases curb appeal more than flawless landscaping. So, when it comes to selecting a lawn care company in Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and surrounding areas, it’s all in the details. The right lawn care company will not only meet your expectations, but exceed them. They will be able to anticipate your needs, and provide you with the services and support you need to have them met.
But how do you go about choosing the right lawn care company?
Step One: The Basics
Start by establishing what you are looking for in a lawn care service. Depending on the lawn care company, they will provide a large range of services - lawn aerating, mowing, watering, seeding, landscaping, fertilizing and more. Start by discussing just what services you would like to contract out, and decide just how much of your own time and efforts you would like to put into your lawn and its maintenance.
Step Two: Talk to your Neighbours
Chances are, your friends and neighbours have already employed lawn care companies, and have formed opinions on their services. Take a walk around your community and speak to neighbours who have the most enviable lawns. Ask them who they entrust the health and vitality of their lawn to. You can also take a look at the Yellow Pages, Google, and online forums to read reviews to form some initial opinions of your own.
Step Three: Schedule a Consultation
Before you sign an agreement with a lawn care company, schedule a consultation! Most lawn care companies will offer complimentary consultations. Together with a representative from the company, you will tour your property and discuss your lawn care needs. Never, ever sign an agreement with a company that has never seen your lawn! This is a sure way to be saddled with unexpected expenses further into the growing season.
Step Four: Discuss Lawn Care Packages
Every lawn care company will offer various styles of lawn care packages, often designed to stay within a tiered pricing system. Start by asking what contract style each lawn care company offers. While some companies require you sign binding yearly contracts, other companies operate on a verbal agreement that can be discontinued at any point. Make sure that you know what is included in each package. For example, is support in between visits included? If you encounter an unexpected lawn pest, or a brand new brown spot will your new lawn care company drop by to investigate?
