3 Reasons to Leave Lawn Care to the Professionals

[fa icon="calendar"] Fri, 11/27/2015 - 10:00 / by Lynn Tootle


More than ever before, there are online videos, resources and DIY tutorials on everything from how to bake the perfect soufflé to how to aerate your lawn. While I admire the motivation and time dedicated to every DIY project, there are some things that should be left to professionals — lawn care being one of them.

While everyone knows how to mow their own lawn, perhaps you would rather spend your free time on other activities. Bigger projects such as overseeding your lawn or disease control should definitely be left to a lawn care professional. We have heard of too many disaster stories of projects gone wrong to stand idly by. Here are 3 reasons you should trust your lawn care to a professional

1. Save Time and Money

Many people feel that lawn care is too expensive or that they can do it themselves. Consider the following scenario. It is autumn, temperatures are getting cooler and you know it’s time to overseed your lawn. You go out, buy some seed, rent a rotary spreader and dedicate an entire weekend (or more) to dethatching, aerating and overseeding your lawn.

After a few weeks, you are disappointed that your lawn is still looking patchy and the new seeds haven’t properly sprouted. Perhaps the wrong type of seed was used, or an improper amount of seed was applied. Maybe you had trouble with the rotary spreader. Whatever the reason, you feel like you wasted a lot of your time and now have to spend more money to fix the problem. A lawn care professional would be able to take care of the entire process from preparing your lawn, to overseeding, to fertilizing.

2. Fully Equipped

A lawn care professional has all the equipment and fancy gadgets you will ever need. There’s no need to spend money on renting a sub-par piece of machinery and spending your precious time trying to work it.

3. Expert Knowledge and Experience

While there are many lawn care companies that hire inexperienced workers, at Gro-Masters we take pride in our knowledgeable and experienced team.
