Taking on outside DIY projects is a common thing for weekend warriors. There are plenty of small, simple tasks you can get done outside within one weekend. Some of these small chores can make a big difference. For example, cleaning out your flowerbed and putting in some new plants can have a significant impact on the look of the exterior of your house. But, there are times when a seemingly simple project becomes complicated or more time consuming that you expected. In these situations your weekend project may extend to the next weekend or beyond. If you find yourself in one of these situations then you may have come to the conclusion that you need help. Once you decide you need help the next question is, ‘Who can I call?’ You should call someone local who has a proven track record of dealing with the type of project you need help with.
Call a local lawn care professional
Getting local help matters when it comes to doing projects in your yard. The trees, shrubs, pests, and weeds in your yard may be unique to your area. A local professional will have experience dealing with the elements in your area that are unique because of their history working with other homeowners nearby. Staying local also means that you can get references and check out some of the work done by the professionals you are considering. As you start your search for someone to help with the project in your yard, start local.
Call someone with experience in the areas you need help
Lawn care is a broad topic that can refer to something basic like mowing to something specialized like systemic tree injections. The type of help you need should inform your search for a lawn care professional. Call someone with experience in the specific area where you need help. For example, many homeowners attempt to deal with weeds or lawn pests on their own but run into problems. Problems arise because it is difficult to choose the correct type of treatment and apply it without the appropriate training or equipment. Do not assume every lawn care professional has the experience to deal with your specific project. Talk details with whomever you are considering so you know that you are getting the expertise you need.
Call someone with a proven track record
Lawn care is one of those businesses where new ‘professionals’ pop up all the time. You can go down to the local hardware store, purchase a few pieces of equipment and open your own lawn care company. Using a new company for a task like mowing may not be a problem. But, when it comes to more complicated projects like shrub care, weed control, and tree care it is best to find someone with a proven track record and time in the business. Specialized projects like these require specialized knowledge to be done correctly. Look at the track record of any place you are considering and do not be afraid to ask specific questions about their training and how long they have been in business.
