Why hire a professional lawn care service?

It is easier than ever these days to tackle home projects yourself thanks to YouTube and endless internet search options. While we applaud the initiative of D.I.Y. (do-it-yourself) homeowners, it may not be the right choice when it comes to caring for your lawn. Here are 5 reasons you should hire a professional lawn care service this summer.

Save money on equipment and supplies.

Professional Lawn Care services provide everything you need, saving you money on equipment maintenance and storage. Push mowers cost between $200 to $1000 or more on average, depending on size and features selected. Riding mowers average between $500 to over $3000. Homeowners often find that they need to purchase additional equipment such as rakes, blowers, edgers and trimmers. After the initial purchase regular maintenance, much like your vehicles, becomes a repeating expense. A professional lawn mower tune up alone can cost from $50 to $100 every year.

Then there is the added expense of weed control, fertilizers, and other product applications.  Equipment and supplies need a place to be stored (when not in use).  Considering current home values in the Omaha metro area are approximately $150 per square foot, storage space can be costly.

Focus on the things that really matter in your life.

When you hire a professional lawn care service, you gain more free time. According to the American Time Use Survey, the average American spends about 70 hours a year on lawn and garden care. By hiring a professional lawn care service, you no longer have to worry about choosing between caring for your lawn or spending time with friends and family.

A lawn care service team provides a crew to do the work in less time than it would take you alone. Commercial lawn mowers often feature a wider cutting span, so more grass is cut during each pass. Even if you are home when your lawn care service arrives, they will be done in less time than if you did it alone.

Another, often overlooked, time commitment is the time spent researching and troubleshooting lawn care concerns (like weeds and pest control) online or at a big box store. Wouldn’t you rather spend your weekend relaxing instead of mowing, reading labels, and self-diagnosing your lawn care needs?

Expert advice that you can trust.

Oxford dictionary defines an expert as “a person who has a comprehensive and authoritative knowledge of or skill in a particular area.” You rely on financial experts to help you plan for retirement and medical experts to keep you healthy, so why not recruit a lawn care expert to care for your property? At Paradise Lawns, lawn care is what we are passionate about and do all day long. We spend our days working in lawns across the Omaha metro area. We take the time to assess your lawn and soil through methods like testing your lawn’s pH balance. Then, we devise a plan that is customized to your lawn’s needs. Without an expert eye, many homeowners end up reacting to a problem versus allowing a professional to be proactive with treatments. The more reactive, the more potential for expense.

Safer & more effective than what is sold at big box stores.

Our professional grade products are more effective compared to items found at big box stores. As experienced lawn care professionals, we not only have the knowledge about what to use to treat your lawn, but access to the products needed to act when the time is right. We are trained and understand product ingredients and usage guidelines.

We use the most effective method of treatment starting with the first application we do for you. An accurate application (proper amount of nutrients at the right time) will get the best results from your lawn.

At Paradise Lawns, your family’s personal safety is a priority and we also care about using products that are safe for the environment. That is why we are proud to share that we are certified and trained as a BeeSafe Organic Lawn Care Applicator in Eastern Nebraska (Omaha, Elkhorn, Bennington, Gretna, Blair, Papillion and LaVista).

Looking out for your lawn all year long.

A professional eye to look over your lawn means greater weed control and preventative measures vs. waiting until there is a problem. As a professionally trained lawn care provider, we know the signs of trouble sometimes before they become apparent. The fact that we actively work throughout the Omaha metro area, proves positive for you as well. When a pattern of trouble starts to appear, we know what to look for and hopefully prevent your lawn from having the same issues. As a homeowner you may not be aware that there is a lawn issue in your neighborhood until it appears in your backyard.

As a professional lawn care service, we know what to do during each season to support your lawn in every climate. For example, what you do in the fall will help determine the success of your lawn the next spring. Let us help you take the steps to protect your lawn all year long.
