Hiring a professional lawn care company is not a decision to be taken lightly. Essentially, this company will be taking over some critical duties in order to keep your yard healthy, fresh, and vibrant for years to come. But how do you know when it’s time to hire a lawn care professional? Are there signs to look out for? Naturally, the decision to choose a professional landscaping company can be as simple as not wanting to deal with the yard work any longer, but, there are other things to keep in mind that might be an indicator for a change in your lawncare protocol.
1. Your yard is starting to or already has pests.
One of the easiest signs to look out for when considering a transition to a professional landscaping company involves pests. If you’ve started to notice more insects or animals appearing within your yard, then you might already have a problem. Many pests like to make their homes in the tall grass, piles of leaves, and hedges of your yard. This can be detrimental to your plants and lawn with time. Calling on a professional company will help reduce the chances of pests revisiting your yard down the road.
2. There are more brown spots than there should be.
We all hope to have vibrant, green grass, but sometimes that isn’t always the easiest thing. There are many factors that go into getting your grass to be as green as possible, some of which might be out of your comfort zone. If you’re noticing more brown spots outside of the fall and winter months and watering your lawn just isn’t making much of a difference, then it might be time to call in the professionals. Experts will likely be able to determine if something is seriously wrong with your grass and then proceed as needed.
3. Your lawn is just too big!
If your property is rather large and the idea of regular landscaping and gardening stops you in your tracks, then let the professionals handle it. You might not have the time needed to dedicate to your yard the way you want, or it’s just simply a task better suited for a team. A professional landscaping company can handle the biggest of yards with multiple team members working at the same time to get the job done.
4. You have nosey neighbors or a strict HOA.
We’ve all likely had those neighbors, right? The ones who seemingly insert themselves into every piece of neighborhood business? Well, this can get tricky if they start commenting on your yard and then complaining to the HOA. Rather than get involved in neighborhood politics, just let the professionals handle it.
5. You feel overextended at home.
Let’s face it, homeownership is a big responsibility. If it’s not one thing that usually needs addressing, it’s another. If you don’t have the know-how, the time, or the patience to handle your own lawncare, that’s completely okay! Rather than spending hours every weekend outside away from your family, let the professionals handle it for you. Free up some of the time you dedicate to your yard for things that are more important in your life.
