3 Important Questions to Ask Your Weed Control Service Provider

Hiring a weed control service provider can help you keep your lawn looking amazing, but it pays to understand the services you’re soliciting. To that effect, here are three important questions you need to remember to ask your weed control service provider.

How Often Will You Treat My Lawn?

Almost 50% of homeowners who upgrade their outdoor spaces spend upwards of six hours there per week. If you, like so many others, spend a lot of time out in your yard, it’s important to understand how often your lawn will be treated so you can safely enjoy your time outside. It’s also a good idea to get a feel for the level of lawn service your weed control provider offers. Will they fertilize your lawn after treating it for weeds? Do you need to pay for every visit or is there a package where you can pay for multiple visits at one time? Getting the answers to these questions will give you a better idea of how well your lawn will be cared for while you work with a particular service provider.

Will My Lawn Be Safe After Treatment?

Again, we return to the issue of being able to enjoy your outdoor spaces after your weed control provider has administered a treatment. Before you work with any kind of lawn service, understanding what type of weed control products they use is key. In most cases, it’s a safer bet to work with a natural lawn care service that uses organic weed control products. While you may still need to stay out of the yard during treatment, these products are often much safer for your family, pets, and the environment than their inorganic counterparts. When in doubt, ask if organic weed control services are available.

Do You Offer Any Other Lawn Care Services?

If you can consolidate all of your lawn care with one service provider, that’s excellent news. This is why it’s so important to ask any prospective providers what services they offer aside from weed control. A lawn care professional’s job is to help you reach your outdoor space goals. The more services they provide that align with those goals, the better. Make sure you ask this question to avoid having to work with multiple lawn service providers.

Before you work with any lawn service provider for weed control, make sure you ask these questions. Your lawn will thank you!
