If you’re thinking about your lawn, the question probably isn’t about whether you want it to be radiantly green and healthy, but more so about how you will achieve that goal! When it comes down to it, there are two options; you could either go DIY and mow your own lawn or hire a professional lawn care service. To be fair, both options have their pros and their cons!
Reasons To Hire A Service:
If you can afford it and are short on time, then it makes more sense to hire someone reliable. In most cases it is much easier for a lawn company to take care of your lawn than it is for you. Saving you both the time and the effort.
A big reason to hire a professional lawn care service is consistency! They will have a set schedule for your lawn to be mowed. Sometimes weekly or sometimes twice a month.
Mowers aren’t cheap and they need attention. They would be an investment similar to major appliances, such as a dryer or a refrigerator. If you are not mower-savvy and are not familiar with how to service a mower such as doing maintenance on the mower by changing the oil, sharpening the blades, and tuning it up every year, then you’ll need to learn how, or pay someone else to do it. If this does not sound good to you then it might be a good ida to hire a service to maintain your lawn.
Reasons To Mow Your Own Lawn
For some people, mowing the lawn is one of those weekly tasks that they can actually enjoy. It can be “therapeutic”. Just the repetitive movement of mowing and the perfect crisp lines that you create can help slip you into a calmer state of mind. Not to mention taking in the soothing smell of freshly cut grass after, knowing you made that happen!
Hiring a lawn mower service can add up over time, costing a lot of money in the long run. So really by mowing your lawn you could be saving money in the longterm.
Knowing your yard; Mowing your lawn regularly gives you a chance to really get to know your yard, in the sense of finding out which parts of your lawn need special attention and care.
