Things to know before you get started.
7 Steps to Hiring a Lawn Service
  1. 1. Interview and get estimates

    Ask at least three companies for estimates on the cost of mowing your lawn. Once you have gathered the estimates, choose the one that suits your budget.

  2. 2. Remember the season

    Keep in mind that winter months tend to cost less than summer months. Some companies charge a flat rate throughout the year, and other companies vary their rates with the seasons.

  3. 3. Check references

    If the company is not reliable, your lawn may end up overgrown and cause you to incur homeowner’s association fines or other headaches in the future.

  4. 4. Verify licensing

    Ensure that the lawn care service that you have chosen possesses a current business license and carries liability insurance.

  5. 5. Verify membership

    Ask about trade or business organizations. An excellent lawn care service will usually maintain contacts with other businesses in the industry.

  6. 6. Ask about machines and supplies

    Determine what type of equipment the lawn care service provides. Ask about the removal of leaves, dead branches, and lawn clippings. Some businesses charge extra for this.

  7. 7. Use a keen eye

    Many contracts automatically renew after a certain time period. Suggest revisions that allow you to decide whether or not you wish to renew the services when the contract period is up.
