Wondering whether it’s worth it to hire a lawn company vs. DIY lawn cutting? These days, many homeowners don’t have the time or energy to dedicate their downtime to lawn maintenance. If you’re struggling to carve out time for landscaping but still want to maintain an attractive looking yard, hiring a lawn company could be a benefit for you. And you may be surprised once you realize how affordable it can be. To help you decide, here’s our rundown of the pros and cons.
Hiring a Lawn Company
When you’re not keen on giving up weekends to cut the grass and trim the hedges, save time and let someone else do it for you. A lawn care contractor will arrive on an as-need basis and with a schedule that suits yours.
Professional-grade Care & Products
Lawn care companies don’t often use the same standard-grade products that you’ll find at your local hardware or garden store. They use professional and premium-grade soil, seed, mulch, and more. Homeowners can access the best quality products in the industry to give their grass the best treatment and care.
Equipment Is Provided
Maintaining a lawn requires a lot of bulky equipment – mower, rakes, edge & weed trimmer – it’s a lot to have to store away. Plus, maintenance and gas to fuel up the mower can be a pain. With a hired lawn care team, they’ll bring everything they need so you don’t have to worry about storing or maintaining equipment.
DIY Lawn Care
Time & Commitment
Maintaining an attractive landscape takes time and commitment to provide the level of upkeep that’s needed. Consider whether you’re okay with forfeiting some of those summer weekends.
Investing In & Storing Equipment
Of course, DIY lawn care also means you’ll need to invest in the proper equipment, maintain and replace items when necessary, and find somewhere to store them. Certain lawns may also require more specialty equipment rentals, like an aerator.
Health & Fitness
Cutting the grass, raking, and pulling up weeds can be a great way to enjoy the fresh air while being active. It gives you an excuse to embrace the sunshine while making your yard look beautiful and inviting.
