4 Great Qualities To Look For In A Local Lawn Care Company

Hiring a local lawn care company can be tricky. That’s why we put together this list of 4 great qualities to look for so you can be sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck and the most qualified company to make your lawn beautiful and pest free!

1. Licensed, Insured, Qualified

After you’ve selected a few lawn care companies to speak with, one of the first questions you should ask is whether they are licensed and insured. An uninsured or underinsured provider could put you at risk if any damages or accidents occur on your property. You should take the safe route and make sure any lawn care company you use is licensed and insured.

You also want to make sure the staff is qualified. For instance, here at Valley Green Companies, we invest in ongoing employee training to make sure we offer you the most effective and efficient services. We also do not employee any “summer help” positions; all of our employees work with us year-round and we have low turnover so you know you’re getting an experienced lawn care professional.

2. Stellar Reviews

When you’re seeking out a lawn care company, one of the best indicators of how they will perform on your lawn is their past performance! While you may not be able to dig up samples from past lawns they’ve worked on, you can check out their online reviews to see what customers think about them.

You’re going to want to see a company with 4-5 out of 5 stars, with a number of reviews from around the internet. If they only have 3 or 4 reviews, they probably aren’t inspiring a lot of their customers to rave about them!

3. Local Fertilizers

Another great quality to look for in a local lawn care company is if they offer fertilizer customized for local lawns. At Valley Green Companies, our custom programs were designed and tested to perform exceptionally in Minnesota’s climate.

We apply only the finest slow-release fertilizers that feed your lawn naturally through the roots, promoting a thicker, greener and weed-free lawn. Our custom blended products are formulated specifically for Minnesota lawns. No “generic” or “off-the-shelf” products are ever used.

4. Varied Services

Lastly, you don’t want to have to contract with five different companies to take care of your ant problem, your crabgrass problem, your lawn fertilizing, your mosquito issues and your lawn seeding.

That’s why we offer a full docket of lawn care services to you! We specialize in the following vital services: fertilization, weed control, aeration, overseeding, rock and mulch bed weed control along with mosquito, flea and tick control.
