Many homeowners contemplate the decision to do their lawn maintenance themselves or just hire a landscaping company to handle the task. Whether it comes down to lack of time or lack of enjoyment, letting a professional meet the demands of your yard is a worthwhile investment for many. Here are some things to consider if you want to relinquish your lawn maintenance chores to an expert:
DIY is Not as Cost Effective as You May Think
Many people choose to mow and maintain their own lawn to save cost. However, once you crunch the numbers, you may be surprised at how little you are actually saving. You will need to consider the cost of the equipment, including a lawn mower, weeding tools, trimmer, blower, etc. There is also the expense of special lawn products, such as fertilizer and weed killer. Many homeowners waste money on products until they find something that works best. In addition, you may face repairs for equipment that breaks and you’ll need to include the cost of gas for your mower. Once you add it up – is the money savings really worth the time and commitment involved?
Save Time and Energy
Let’s face it; the average adult is short on time. Whether you are a working father who wants to spend more time with his kids on the weekend or a widow who simply doesn’t have the energy to work all morning on the lawn, hiring a professional can be a great solution. Even if you love working in the yard, not everyone has the time and energy to do it. Go ahead and schedule that Saturday round of golf with your son and come home to freshly manicured lawn.
Avoid Problems You Don’t Know How to Handle
Just like your own health, the health of your lawn will encounter specific problems or concerns from time to time. It is very likely that you will have to handle issues like weeds, lawn disease, drainage problems or other complications. If you aren’t trained in landscaping, this can be a real headache to deal with and you may end up spending a lot of time and money trying to solve it yourself. A professional lawn maintenance company knows how to detect lawn problems early, and treat them properly before they become major issues.
