There is nothing nicer than a lovely, lush expanse of lawn surrounding your home. Lawn does require maintenance and regular mowing to keep it looking its best but if you don’t have the time or inclination to do it yourself, the good news is that you can hire a lawn mowing service. Here are our tips to help you find the perfect one for you.
Determine What Services You Need
The first thing that you need to do is to find out what services are offered by your lawn mowing company and which ones you will actually need. Of course, all lawn mowing services will offer mowing, edging and whipper snippering as part of their services but many offer a lot more. For example, they could provide fertilising, watering, weeding, rubbish removal, sweeping, and pest removal services as well! This is great if you are looking for a company that provides an all in one solution to lawn care. You don’t have to choose all services though – you can mix and match to get the perfect one for your needs and budget. That is, you could opt for mowing, plus removal of clippings as a base service, or you can opt for an aeration, fertilising, and grub removal service. It’s up to you.
How Often Do You Need Your Lawn Mowed?
Another thing you have to consider when choosing a lawn mowing service is how often they will actually come and mow your lawn. Will you have to enter a contract to have it done weekly, fortnightly or monthly, or will you have the freedom to call them and have them come out whenever you need them? This is important as some people will require a regular service that they just pay for every month and not have to worry about it past that, while others may need just a once or twice off service to help them get back on top of their lawn maintenance.
One of the best ways to find a good lawn mowing service is to ask for recommendations. Ask your friends, family and neighbours who they use and if they are happy with them. Try and ask people that live local to you so that you can get recommendations from companies that are also local. Also ask the service if they can provide you with a list of references or testimonials from prior customers.
Ensure the Service Fits Your Budget
Finally, you will want to make sure that the lawn mowing service fits your budget. Ask them how much it is for them to come and do your lawn and what they include in their price. This is important as some services that you need may actually be extra, thus blowing the budget that you have set for the service. Also ask how they prefer to be paid and how often payments have to be paid.
