Choosing a Lawn Care Service for Your Virginia Beach VA Real Estate

If you’re feeling the time pressures from work, parenting, and home upkeep and want some help taking care of the yard of your Virginia Beach VA real estate, you might consider hiring a lawn maintenance company. Lawn care companies can provide a wide range of services, from merely applying fertilizer and weed controls to insect control, aerating, mowing, and even renovating the yard of your Virginia Beach VA real estate. A possible option for you? Read on for some ideas on how to choose the right company for your needs.

First, be aware that all lawn care companies are not the same. Their programs will vary not only in cost, but also in the variety of standard and optional services offered to you, the owner of Virginia Beach VA real estate. You should become familiar with: (1) the annual cost for a company’s standard program, (2) the services supplied as part of the standard program, and (3) the types of costs for optional services provided by the company. Before contracting for lawn care services, it is best to contact and compare 2 to 3 (or more) reputable companies. Check with neighbors whose lawns you admire or contact your local Service Magic for recommendations.

Almost all states require lawn maintenance companies to be licensed. Ensure that any company you are considering has a license in good standing. Also ask if the company is associated with any professional lawn care associations, as these groups have standards all members must meet before being accepted for membership. In addition, you might check the website of the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) for memberships in that internationally recognized certification program.

Information you’ll want to gather when interviewing potential companies should include *cost, *frequency of services, *standard vs. optional services, *types of chemicals and fertilizers used, *willingness to advise/educate you if you’re going to be doing some of the maintenance yourself,* flexibility in service schedules, *guarantees, *soil testing, *experience, and *references. Online websites from Ohio State University and EHow provide specific questions you should ask in each of these areas.

If you do your homework, gather sufficient information, and hire carefully, your Virginia Beach VA real estate may well sport a lustrous green lawn this summer—and you can enjoy some extra leisure time!
