Few people really love yard maintenance. It’s an obligatory chore that most homeowners know they need to do to keep their property looking well groomed. If the weekend comes around and you wish you could be doing anything else but mowing, raking and weeding, there may be a solution. You could hire someone to do it for you. A yard maintenance company will keep your outdoor spaces looking great while you can take a well-deserved break and do the things you enjoy.

Services that you can hire for include mowing, aerating, racking, hedge trimming, weeding, fertilizing, seasonal cleanup and general yard work. Yard maintenance services come in all sizes, from a single person with one truck to a large company with an entire crew and a fleet of trucks. Some companies may specialize in specific areas such as mowing lawns and trimming hedges while others may be all-inclusive and cover everything. You need to decide exactly what you need to have done before you hire any specific company.

Check Out Your Yard Maintenance Options

Of course you’ll want to know more about a yard maintenance company than just what services they provide. Ask for references and actually check them out. Find out if the company is reliable and shows up according to schedule. Make sure any company or individual that you interview carries appropriate licensing and insurance for your state. Never, under any circumstances hire someone that isn’t adequately insured. It may seem like a small thing but if you end up with damaged property or worse yet, a worker gets hurt while on your property it can create a lot of legal problems.

Most yard maintenance companies will write out a seasonal or yearly contract that outlines the specific services to be performed and how often they need to be done but you can also hire a company for a one time job, such as fall leaf cleanup or removal of brush. Some companies may also clean gutters in the fall, plow snow and shovel walks in the winter and even hang lights for the holidays. When it comes to yard maintenance, all you need to do is ask!
