Should You Hire a Chemical Lawn Care Company or Do it Yourself?

We’ve all been there. Heading to the store to buy overpriced fertilizer, cramming it in your trunk, then taking precious time out of your day to apply it to your lawn. You hope the results will be good, and even if they are, they don’t last long. So, you head back to the store, looking for a miracle product that will enhance the look of your lawn. Yet, you can only buy products with a small amount of potency due to regulations and guidelines. This is exactly why you need a chemical lawn care company to take care of your lawn.

Trust the experts

There is a reason the license for operating a chemical lawn care company is so hard to get. The state of Florida wants to make sure the license holders are absolute experts in their field. This license ensures that the products applied to your lawn will be correct and applied in the proper manner, as well as ensuring that the products are environmentally friendly. Also, the products used by a licensed chemical lawn care company are more complete and have more potency than the products you, as a consumer, can buy over the counter. These products are applied using the right dosage and at the correct times of the year.

Make life easier

Everyone would love to be able to push the easy button. Well, when it comes to the health of your lawn, you can. By signing up for service with a licensed chemical lawn care company, you no longer have to worry about what products to buy for your lawn and when to apply them. It’s all done for you! It’s a no brainer. For less money than you would spend buying over the counter chemicals with less potency, you can have a licensed company take care of your lawn with the proper chemicals at the proper time.

Your Lawn and the Human Body

OK, so you’ve signed up for a weed control, insect control, and fertilization program from a licensed chemical lawn care company. You’re optimistic and are looking for great results, hopeful that your lawn and shrubs will remain healthy and green. The main question is: How long should you stay with the service to get the best results possible? The answer is simple…

Stay with the program!

Just like you, your lawn and shrubs are living organisms. And just like you, living organisms need consistent care, nutrients, and attention.

Let’s compare the human body to your lawn. Imagine starting a healthy diet and you say you’re going to stick with your diet so you can be healthy. You start your diet and the first 2 months give great results. You’ve lost some weight, you have more energy, you’re sleeping better, and you feel great. You’re putting the proper nutrients in your body, you’re adequately hydrating by drinking plenty of water, and all this is due to you staying with your program. BUT, after 2 months, you decide that you can take a break from the diet. You stop taking in the necessary nutrients, you stop drinking plenty of water, and you stop staying with the program. What happens?! The weight comes back on and you become unhealthy again. And worse, you have to start all over to get the desired results!

The same is true for your lawn! This living organism needs proper nutrients, water, and attention. And it can’t be ‘start, stop, and start again’ like a bad diet. It must be consistent and constant, just like the health of your human body.

Don’t quit

A healthy lifestyle provides numerous benefits to the human body and needs to be steady and consistent. The longer you provide essential nutrients and water to your body, the better your body will be. This same concept applies to your lawn. Don’t stop giving your lawn the nutrients (fertilization), weed and insect control, and hydration (watering with your irrigation system) it needs. It can’t be sporadic, or your lawn will suffer the same as you would. We recommend staying on a chemical lawn care program for a minimum of at least 1 year. Treat your lawn as you would treat your body. The longer you take care of it, the better results you will have.
