Leave it to the Professionals: Why You Should Hire a Lawn Care Company

Last Updated on March 4, 2022 by Kravelv

When spring and summer arrive, some people find caring for their lawn to be a truly relaxing and rewarding experience. Then there are those who find the weekly chore of lawn mowing and weed pulling to be a less than relaxing way to spend a warm summer evening. Whether you love or loath caring for your lawn, here are a few good reasons to consider hiring lawn care services:

Free Up Your Schedule

Spring and summer goes by too quickly as is, but when you’ve got camping trips planned or the kids are in a summer sport, it may feel like all of your time is booked. If you don’t stay on top of your mowing schedule (and “Keep Up with the Joneses”) you will be tackling a big challenge when you finally find time to mow your jungle of a yard. If you hire a lawn care company, not only are you freeing up some of your valuable time during one of the best seasons of the year, but you don’t have to worry about being home or find someone to mow the yard when you decide to go on a two week road trip.

Professional Advice

While many lawn care companies don’t require that one has a degree in horticulture to do lawn care, a majority of employees are specialized and have experiences in a certain field, such as landscaping or gardening. Even if you consider yourself to have a “green thumb”, you may not be able to properly identify a weed from a plant you would like to keep. A professional and experienced lawn care company can help you identify plants and help you create a plan that works best for your yard. Not all yards are the same, nor should they be treated the same. Depending on where you live, your lawn may need to be mowed more often than other lawns. A good and trusted lawn care company such as Greensleeves UK will keep your lawn looking healthy all summer long.

Increase the Value of Your Home

If your house is on the market or you’re considering putting it up for sale, you may want to consider hiring a lawn care company. Although it’s extremely important that your house is the focus of attention, many potential homebuyers seriously consider the yard just as much as the home. If you have a well-groomed yard with some nice landscaping features, it completes the picture and increases the value of your property.

Lawn Care Can Be Dangerous

While it’s never a wise idea to mow the lawn when the grass is wet or without wearing proper footwear, there are many other potential dangers involved with lawn care. Lawn care workers are likely to be injured on the job for a variety of reasons from insect bites to excessive heat.


According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), individuals of whom work in the landscape and horticulture industry are prone a to variety of workplace injuries such as slips, trips, and falls, cuts and amputations, electrocution, heat/cold stress, and exposure to pesticides and other chemicals.

If he or she is professionally trained, a lawn care worker is less likely to be injured than if you were to perform some of the same duties on your own time.

  1. You mentioned that having a lawn care company take care of your lawn could help add value to your home, in the case that you want to sell it. My sister doesn’t have time to keep up with her lawn due to her busy life, so she has considered hiring out the work instead. I’ll have to tell her about the increase in value it could bring, as she also tends to move a lot and info like this is invaluable to her.
