3 Tips on Choosing the Best Lawn Care Company for Your Yard

As you probably already know, there are a lot of lawn care companies in Louisville. With so many different companies out there, it can be difficult to make a choice. Hiring a lawn service shouldn’t feel like such a difficult challenge but in reality, it can get confusing. 

The last thing you want to do is choose a lawn care provider in Louisville you’re not happy with.

That’s why we’re talking about how to find a lawn care service. Hopefully, some of these tips will give you a better idea of what to look for and how to make your decision.

Hiring a Lawn Care Company

We understand this process can be a bit overwhelming. But here are a few specific things to consider that might help you make an educated decision.


The fact is, there is a ton of marketing noise out there and it can be hard to block that out. But instead of getting overwhelmed with claims (some of which may not be true…or may be exaggerated), here are some things that actually matter.

#1: Look for a Company with Good Reviews

One of the first places you can start your research when hiring a lawn service is on a review site like Google Reviews.

This is a great way to obtain “social proof” and hear what others have to say about a lawn care provider you are considering. We recommend looking for a lawn care company that has a 4.7 star rating or higher if you’re looking for the best results and service. 

When looking at reviews, remember to not only look at the rating but also at the number of reviewers. As you can imagine, the more reviewers that a company has, the more difficult it becomes to maintain a high rating. Typically, you want to see more than 100 reviews.

Also, take the time to read the comments and see what others have to say about the company you’re considering. While none of us can predict the future, this is one of the best ways to get a better understanding of what you can expect. 

After all, nothing is worse than winding up with a lawn care company that doesn’t “do what it says it will do,” or is tough to communicate with. One of the best ways to avoid common problems like this is to read about other peoples’ experiences.


#2: Spend Time on the Lawn Care Provider’s Website

As you think about hiring a lawn service it can also help to spend some time on each company’s website. 

What are you looking for exactly? Well, look to see what that company is all about

  • Do they offer helpful resources like a blog with articles that help educate you about your lawn? 
  • Do they offer plenty of details about the lawn services and programs that they offer? 
  • Do they have photos of real customers and actual team members (or is it clearly a bunch of stock images)?

After spending time on a company’s website, you should have a much clearer idea in your mind of what they’re all about and what they have to offer. If you are still in the dark after spending time on their website, that should be a red flag. 

You simply don’t really know what you’re getting.


#3: Compare the Lawn Care Program Options

You’ll also want to look at the lawn care program options and compare them from one company to another. Choosing the lawn care program that is right for your needs is your main goal, so you want to look at what each company has to offer.

This can vary from one lawn care provider to another, more than you might think.

We know that comparing lawn care programs can also feel complicated (especially if you do not know what to look for). Fortunately, that’s also something that we have written an article about.

To summarize the points in that article, a lawn care program should:

  • Cover all of your lawn’s basic needs
  • Work through a lawn care schedule that includes different services at different times of the year.
  • Provide excellent customer service. After all, it’s not just about getting amazing results but also receiving a great customer experience. Even if you had a beautiful lawn you’d be frustrated if your lawn care company wasn’t easily reachable or didn’t follow through on their promises.

By spending time on a company’s website, you’ll have a much clearer idea of what’s included in their lawn care program and how it will meet your needs.


Making Your Wise Choice in Hiring a Lawn Service

While it can be a lot of work on the front end, when you research your options, you really do wind up saving yourself time and aggravation on the back end. If you end up with a company that you aren’t happy with, you end up back to the drawing board and have to go through the decision-making process all over again.

Plus, if you weren’t getting great results or service during that time, you might actually be steps backward from where you were.

One thing we would caution against as you search for the right company is to avoid shopping on price. We know that some people simply choose the least expensive lawn care program when shopping around. But if that is your only point of comparison, as we mentioned before, you might not be getting everything you need. 

Sometimes a lawn care company is “cheap” because they aren’t including everything your lawn actually needs.

This is why it’s important to take the time to look at what’s actually included rather than just choosing a cheap price.
