The meaning of this blog post is to guide you whether to hire or DIY your lawn care.
So I'll set the scene; birds are chirping again, sun is warming the days up, rains steady rolling in, you guessed it spring has reached your part of East Tennessee.
The truth be told most don't think about how their lawn is looking until the neighbor's start to show you up, or family and friends start to visit. I get it. It's a common thing, but you can not get a great lawn over night it takes time, knowledge, and effort.
That is why there are so many lawn care and landscape companies in Knoxville Tennessee. These services sale you their time, knowledge, and effort. You just reap the benefit of the curb appeal and none of the sweat and headaches.
The purpose of this blog post is to guide you whether to hire or DIY your lawn care. There are several aspects to look at when making this decision.
Can I DIY?
Do you have warm or cool season grasses? Lots of weeds? Mix of warm season, cool season and weeds? It's a lot to take in, but if you want to take the plunge and handle this aspect on your own I suggest contacting our local SiteOne in the Knoxville area. They will help guide you to a treatment plan.
To hire or not to hire that is the question?
A very common approach is to hire out the lawn care and landscape side of things while you keep mowing that beautiful lawn you are paying for. This can be done, just be sure that you and contractor/s are on the same page for cut frequency, height of cut, and watering schedule.
