10 Sep Are You Happy with your Landscape Company?
If you are not happy with your landscape company, September is the perfect time to make a change in landscape service providers. This time of year gives you the opportunity to “try out” a new company for a couple of months giving you ample time to learn if it will be a good fit for the next season. Landscape maintenance companies provide lawn assessments, weekly landscape maintenance services including your fall property clean up and if needed an irrigation system fall shut down service and fall outdoor lighting service estimate.
When looking to change your landscape company this month, look to a full service company who is a member of the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association (ILCA). Full service landscape companies give you the freedom of working with one company for all your landscape needs. No need to call or contract with 3 to 4 different companies each season. They will evaluate the needs of your landscape and develop a personalized program to maintain the health and beauty of your property. Consider a company whose weekly grounds landscape service includes weekly mowing, trimming, pruning and weeding of plant beds. Learn about what is included in a company’s fall clean-up service. Ask questions – does the company offer plant bed fertilization, lawn fertilization and weed control. In addition, do they have team members who are knowledgeable in lawn health and garden health to ensure these areas are fit and pest free. Does the landscape maintenance company you are considering offer services like lawn aeration, seeding or reseeding, mulching, rose care, winter plant protection, animal repellents, disease and insect control, seasonal planting of bulbs and annuals and the covering and uncovering of perennials in the winter.
If it’s personal service and professional results you are looking for, consider contacting a full service landscape firm, like Schmechtig Landscapes, who customize a landscape program for you.
