About Virginia Lawn Maintenance Companies
When choosing a lawn maintenance service, there are a few things that homeowners should consider. Yards are by no means one size fits all, so it’s important for homeowners and the company to determine the yard’s specific needs together.
When choosing between weekly, biweekly, or monthly service, homeowners should consider their yard size, watering regimen, and sun and shade exposure. The types of turf, shrubs, and trees in the yard are also determining factors. For instance, Kentucky bluegrass, popular among Northern Virginia homeowners, grows at a faster rate and may require more frequent lawn maintenance. Another local favorite grass, tall fescue, tends to grow with bare patches that need reseeding. If homeowners require pruning and trimming services, the frequency should be determined by the type of tree or shrub.
Once price, payment details, and scheduling have been established, a homeowner should ask for references from other clients before making a final decision. It’s also very helpful to ask about any eco-friendly services the lawn maintenance company may provide as well as further details about their cleanup process and policies.
