When you look out at your lawn after a difficult workday, what do you see? Is it a healthy, beautiful lawn that emanates the pride you take in your property? Or is it a yard full of brown spots, uneven shrubs, and unhealthy grass and trees? 

A well-cared for lawn requires much more than a quick mow on Saturday morning between dashing from one errand to another… proper lawncare requires specialized equipment, experience in diagnosing and treating issues that may arise, and consistency of treatment year-round. If that sounds more like a burden than an enjoyable way to spend your weekends, consider investing in a professional lawn care service. 

  • Save Time and Money

We’ve all heard it, and most believe it’s the way to go…work smarter, not harder. But sometimes we get set in our ways and believe that with a little elbow grease and hard work we can save a few bucks here and there. Let’s be honest…if you invest in a riding lawn mower to “save” money and avoid hiring a professional to care for your lawn, how many times will you have to mow to break even? What about the other tools, equipment, and chemicals you’ll need? After calculating the time, physical labor, and money spent on products, you will likely find that the investment in professional lawn care services is worth it both financially and practically. 

  • Take Advantage of Professional Expertise and Experience

Rodents, insect infestations, and diseases can affect your lawn and garden at any time. Certain types of grass need specific watering schedules, some plants may require treatments to prevent pests from eating them, trees need to be properly trimmed and cared for…and the list goes on and on. If you don’t have the knowledge and experience necessary to properly determine what your lawn needs and how to treat it consistently for optimum health, you may find yourself spending hours in front of a screen researching fungal diseases affecting grass instead of binging your latest favorite on Netflix. 

  • Keep Your Family and Pets Safe

If you’ve already spent hours mowing and tending the garden before you’re even ready to address a problem with disease or infestation in the yard, it’s highly likely that you’ll want to find the fastest and easiest over-the-counter solution out there. However, basic lawn care, weed, insect, and rodent control can involve treatments that must be properly handled and safely applied to avoid putting those you love at risk. If chemical treatments are necessary, a professional knows exactly what and how much to use to ensure a safe and healthy environment for your lawn and those that will be enjoying it. 

  • Free Up Storage Space

Lawn care equipment is quite often bulky and unsightly, requiring storage to keep it out of the elements and in good working condition. Add in bottles of chemicals, fertilizer, bags of potting soil, and small tools, and you will have a full garage or storage shed in no time. Instead, why not let a professional bring top-of-the-line equipment when they come to work, and take it with them when they leave? Reclaim your garage for your car…take back your storage shed for yet another tub of holiday decor you picked up on sale last year…or just enjoy the deep breath you can take after eliminating one more type of clutter surrounding you at home. 

While it may seem doable to properly maintain your lawn and garden while also tending to all the other tasks of life that vie for your attention, why not allow a professional to serve you and your family well? Hiring a professional will give you more time to focus on what matters most to you.
