What Is Included in Lawn Care Services?

You want a beautiful lawn, but do you know how to get it? You might need a lawn care services company, a landscaper, or even both. And when you choose a lawn care or landscaping company, you will likely have many programs and add-ons to choose from. Here’s what you can expect:

Lawn Care Services

Lawn care companies offer programs that promote the health of your lawn year-round and some services that aren’t needed repetitively.

What’s typically included in a lawn care program:

A lawn care program involves periodic services. These programs most commonly include fertilization and weed control—the two key things to getting your beautiful green grass. In Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, a minimum of six visits is key to a healthy lawn. At Green Lawn Fertilizing, our Green Lawn Program includes eight applications.

What varies:

Not every lawn care program is created equal. When you are making your decision, find out what makes each program exceptionally valuable. Does it include grub control or treatments for surface feeding insects? Are results guaranteed, and if so, what does that mean for you?

What are some add-ons:

In addition to core lawncare programs, there are often add-on services or premium plans. Some possible additions include:

  • Aeration and seeding
  • Lime applications
  • Tree and shrub care
  • Mosquito control

While uncommon, some lawn care services companies also offer landscaping services.

Landscaping Services

Landscaping companies are more involved with the superficial aspects of your outdoor space, designing and maintaining your lawn and flowerbeds. Services generally include:

  • Mowing
  • Landscape design
  • Planting
  • Mulching
  • Weeding of flower beds
  • Spring cleanup
