What’s not to love about having a green lawn, a beautifully appointed front yard, and/or a lush garden, filled with flowers and ornamental trees? You don’t need to be an expert in lawn care Midlothian TX to answer that question. Healthy lawns are the pride and joy of any neighbourhood. They help increase the curb appeal of a property, making it easier to sell for a good price. They provide the best décor for summer barbecues or dinners out in nature. Last, but definitely not least, they can cool down a home in the hot summer months, much like a natural, carbon footprint-free A/C system.Yet, unfortunately lawns and gardens don’t just miraculously happen overnight, nor do they take care of themselves. They require important investments in terms of time, money, and energy. They also take a great deal of patience to oversee their growth and development. Some home owners simply can’t spare the time to do all this lawn maintenance work themselves. Others are strapped for cash, while many others don’t know the first thing about what tools, equipment, and substances they need to invest into, in order to keep their lawns in proper shape.
That’s where Vista Turf Lawn & Pest steps in, proudly serving Midlothian, Kennedale, Mansfield and the surrounding areas for many years now. We take pride in calling ourselves one of the top lawn care service providers in the region. For this reason, we want to help our clients choose only the best lawn maintenance companies to work with. So here is our six step plan to identifying top providers of lawn care, based on our track record and expertise.
1) Ask around
Start out with your neighbors. Have any of them ever had any particularly bad or exceptionally good experiences with a lawn care company? Would they recommend anyone in particular? Drive around Midlothian. Do you see any well-manicured lawn that draws your attention? Then don’t hesitate to ask your neighbor who did all that work for them. What lawn maintenance company do they hire for their lawn care needs? Make a shortlist of recommendations and also check out online review aggregators.
2) Know your needs
Say you’ve narrowed your choices down to one or two companies. Before you sign any legally binding documents, make sure you know what kind of contractual terms you want to negotiate. Don’t rush into paying for services your lawn doesn’t really need. Do you really require weed and pest control? What about flower bed maintenance? How often should your lawn mowing company send in their team?
3) Interview your favorite candidates
Remember: you are about to enter into a services contract. You don’t want to rush this decision – after all, if this were a doctor, you’d want to know as much about them as possible. Take the time to interview each company on your shortlist individually. Ask about the methods they use, their billing preferences, as well as their policies on using chemical fertilizers.
4) Ask for an estimate
Make sure to get a rough idea of future costs from all the lawn care companies you’re considering working with. Ask for an estimate or a free initial inspection – the top lawn service providers usually offer these free of charge. Then, they give you a quote based on which you’ll be able to compare all the names on your list.
5) Yearly contracts?
Financially, probably the best deal you can make involves paying a yearly contractual fee, which is bound to save you money in the long-term.
6) Ask for guarantees
Make sure you understand each clause in your contract and double check to make sure you’re only paying for services you will actually use. Also, ask for a money-back guarantee and look into the type of licensing and insurance your company has. The best companies in the industry will offer to repeat treatments and procedures that you’re not fully satisfied with.
