How Much Does Lawn Care Cost

How Much Does Lawn Care CostThe quick answer to the question of how much lawn care cost is that it depends! The size of the lawn, the services that you need, and what treatments are needed to deal with insects and grubs, etc will determine how much it will cost for your lawn care. If you have grubs on your lawn, the crows, the skunks, and the raccoons are going to start digging in the lawn and if the grubs don’t kill the lawn, the animals are going to dig up the lawn to get at the grubs. They can do a lot of damage and totally ruin your lawn if you are not careful and take precautions.

Lawn care treatment can consist of the following types of services:

  • Cutting
  • Lawn edging
  • Weed control
  • Insect control
  • Grub control
  • Lawn Repair

The price that you will pay for these services will depend on which ones you sign up for as well as the size of the lawn and if you have an infestation of insects or grubs, how bad is the infestation. If you are dealing with grubs, get on this quickly so that the grubs are killed prior to the raccoons and skunks digging up the lawn.

If you are planning to consider having professionals treat your lawn, ask for several quotes and compare prices for the services that you are interested in. Compare the quotes and make sure that you are comparing the same services, the same treatment, and the same chemicals. If they are not the same someone might be giving you less than you might with another customer.

How Much Does Lawn Care Cost – Lawn Repair

If you have had damage from grubs or raccoons, and have been successful at getting rid of the grubs, you will still need to repair the lawn. In case you are wondering the grubs will eat the roots of the lawn and the lawn will die during hot dry weather making it easy for the raccoons to dig up the lawn and ruin the entire thing.

Lawn repair can be accomplished in several ways. For example, some people can get away with laying grass seeds and then covering the area with new soil. They then water the lawn on a regular basis. If there is a lot of damage, you may also want to remove all of the dead grass. Then lay new sod in the areas that need to be repaired. In some cases, entire lawns may need to be totally repaired. Remove the old grass and lay new sod.

But and this is a big but, even if you replace the sod, the grubs are still there. They will just snack on the roots of the new lawn. You have to treat the lawn with something that will kill grubs. Nematodes and also pesticides will do the trick, however, kids must be protected from the pesticides along with pets. Neomtods on the other hand are 60% successful and are not harmful to pets and children.

The best time to treat grubs is in August, Sept, and Oct to kill the grubs. Any other time is either too early or too cold. The grubs are not large enough or have already hatched. Get your lawn ready for the attack of grubs and keep your lawn as healthy as possible.
