What are some of the things you should consider before hiring a lawn service company? Do you want to hire the cheapest company? What kind of experience does the company have? How long have they been in business? Are they licensed and insured? Are there employees professional and people you feel safe around? When hiring a lawn care company that has the cheapest bid there is usually a reason why they are the cheapest. Many times they do not carry the proper insurance and workers compensation to protect you if someone was to get hurt on a landscape job on your property. Also, they probably have not invested in the equipment to get the job done right.
What kind of experience do they have is also a concern. You do not want to be the first yard that someone practices laying sod on. Believe it or not, laying sod correctly is just as fine of art as laying tile. Anyone can throw sod and dig some holes for plants. But doing these correctly makes all the difference.
How long have they been in the lawn care business is also important. They are more likely to know the answer to questions you have and be able to recognize problems that you might have in you landscape. This also will reflect the kind of service you might get. Chances are if they do not provide good lawn service they will not be in business very long.
Are the employees that service your lawn professional and people that you will be safe around. How many lawn service companies have you seen mowing yards with there shirt off? This is not very professional and probably reflects on other aspects of the company as well. You do not want to hire a company that when the crew pulls up you feel like you have to run around locking all the doors.
Before hiring a company take all these into consideration before making a decision. Sometimes paying a little more for your lawn maintenance and landscaping is worth the piece of mind you will get from hiring a competent company.
