Hiring a Lawn Care Professional

Lawns are the canvas upon which our landscapes are created. They provide living walkways, play areas for the family, energy savings and environmental benefits by capturing soil and water, preventing it from entering our waterways. But a lack of time and improper care can lead to weeds, insects, diseases and a negative impact on the environment.

Here are some helpful tips if you are considering hiring a professional lawn care service.

Look for a company whose mission matches your landscape goals and shares your environmental concerns. If eco-friendly is your goal, look for a company that uses slow-release fertilizers, spot treats weeds at the proper time, and uses the most ecofriendly products available.

Visit their website to check the company credentials including insurance, as well as employee experience, training and certifications.

A bit more information:  Make sure the company builds the overall health and longevity of your lawn. Growing and nurturing a healthy lawn means fewer weeds, insect and disease problems.
