5 Tips to Help You Choose the Right Lawn Care Plan

Looking to finally invest in better lawn care?

While a lawn care plan is a great investment, you may be faced with a bevy of questions when the time comes to choose a program.
What kind of treatment do I need? Which services are the most necessary? How much will my lawn care plan cost?

Here are a handful of tips to help you make the right choice!

Five Tips to Choose the Best Lawn Care Program

1. Assess your lawn care overall needs

While you might not be able to diagnose every last issue that your lawn is having, you should have a general idea of what your lawn might need. If your grass is struggling to grow and thrive, chances are you will need seeding and fertilizing in your treatment. If you’re having issues with mosquitoes, grubs, and other insects, you will likely need insect and grub control services. If your grass is plagued with weeds, you might need crabgrass control.

2. Determine where you need help to take care of your lawn

Some homeowners are able to cut and water their grass each week. Others may even be able to seed and fertilize their lawn as needed. But then there are some homeowners who simply don’t have the time, expertise, or resources to give their lawn the attention it needs. And there’s no shame in that!

Identify the different areas where you need assistance. With a company like LawnMart, Inc., you can outsource everything from grass cutting and watering to seeding and insect control.

2. Take a look at your budget for lawn care services

We understand that not everyone is able to splurge on lawn care. Take a look at your budget and determine what you can reasonably afford, knowing that whatever you are able to invest in your lawn will pay dividends.

At LawnMart, Inc., we have options for all types of budgets. Whether you’re only able to afford one treatment every couple of months or whether you’re able to make a significant investment in your lawn each month, we can ensure that your lawn stays in great condition at a price point you can afford.

4. Consider the season

You will need different lawn care services depending on the time of year.

If you need lawn care during the spring or summer months, for example, you should anticipate mowing, watering, fertilizing, seeding, mulching, and more. During the winter, on the other hand, you won’t need to mow or water your lawn very often.

But that’s not to say that there is ever a season when lawn care isn’t required. Toronto’s brutal winters require you to take care of your lawn so that your grass can thrive in the spring. You just won’t need quite the same level of grass maintenance.

5. Consult a professional lawn care expert

While you may have a general idea of what your lawn requires, a lawn maintenance professional can help you identify your property’s specific needs.

Before choosing a lawn care plan, you can discuss it with one of our friendly experts here at LawnMart, Inc. to ensure that you are getting all of the services your lawn requires! Give us a call at 1-800-814-1687.
