A beautiful lawn can be both appealing and environmentally friendly, but it can take a lot of work and be a tricky project to do yourself.
Caring for a yard under the best of circumstances can still be challenging; extended periods of extreme weather, dull lawnmower blades, bugs, pests, and heavy foot traffic can all lead to a lawn that needs extra care. The Better Business Bureau is offering a few tips for when you are considering hiring a lawn care professional. First and foremost, be sure to do your research on the company, including reading reviews or asking your neighbors who may have used them. Don’t be afraid to shop around and compare prices.
When you determine who you will use, ask them for a lawn inspection, and make sure you have a clear scope of the amount of work they will be doing. Also look into how long they expect the project to take, and ask if they will be working while you are away.
