Four Reasons as to Why People are Advised to Retain the Services of Experienced Lawn Care Firms
by Donald Dubay
People shopping for lawn care firms to which they can ‘outsource’ the tasks that revolve around caring for their lawns are typically advised to ensure that they only retain the services of experienced lawn care firms. At the very least, where they can’t find experienced firms to work with, such people are advised to work with those associated with people who have worked for other (major) lawn firms for many years. The latter, it is presumed, would tend to be people with lawn care experience, which they hopefully transfer to the firms associated with them.
Of course, the more experienced lawn service firms tend to charge higher prices than the upcoming lawn service firms. It is for this reason that many people have to be shown why it is indeed in their best interest to retain such (expensive) lawn service company, if they are to do so – while foregoing the cheaper but less experienced lawn service company. What we proceed to look at, then, are four reasons as to why the advice for people to only retain the services of experienced lawn service company makes sense.
It emerges that the reasons as to why people are advised to retain the services of experienced lawn company include the facts that:
1. Experienced lawn and landscape firms tend to know what works, in terms of lawn care practices: this is to say, in other words, that they don’t fumble. You tell them the type of lawn you want to end up with, for instance, and they instantly tell you what species of grass you should plant. Your lawn gets infested with a specific pest, and they instantly know what pest control measure to initiate. Now in theory, this knowledge of ‘how things are done’ may not look like a big deal. But in practice, it is quite can make the difference between successful lawn care and failed lawn care.
2. Experienced lawn or landscape care company tend to know what doesn’t work, in terms of lawn service practices: knowledge of ‘what doesn’t work’ turns out to be just as important as knowledge of what actually works. What you don’t want is a firm that will be ‘experimenting’ with various lawn care approaches on your yard! Yet that is precisely what you are likely to get if you retain a lawn service firm which is completely inexperienced.
3. Experienced lawn firms tend to have track records they can refer you to: it is often said that the best way to gauge the effectiveness (or otherwise) of a service sector firm is checking out its references. But how is a lawn care firm which is totally new in the field supposed to have past clients it can refer you to? The availability of a referable track record on the part of experienced lawn firms is thus what makes them ideal.
4. Experienced lawn firms tend to have capacity to handle major projects: you approach the folks at an experienced lawn service firm, and instantly notice that they know exactly what it is likely to take to bring a given lawn care vision into fruition. The inexperienced firms, on the other hand, tend to be either overoptimistic or plainly naïve when it comes to these things. Then again, if a lawn service firm has been in operation for a long period of time, and it has been making profits, chances are that some of those profits will have been ploughed back into the business. That would translate into better lawn service capacity – to handle bigger or more complex projects with ease.
