The Benefits of a Professional Lawn Service

Posted on May 31, 2019 by in Landscaping | 0 comments

I love a good clean yard. I used to think that I was capable of taking care of my lawn to the highest degree. Quite literally, I thought that I had the skills and experience necessary to craft the greatest, greenest, and cleanest yards that were physically possible in my property. But after seeing some truly stellar lawns online, I decided to do some research into the differences between professional and amateur lawn maintenance.

Turns out, there is actually a pretty big difference between what can be accomplished by someone who works in lawn care as their permanent occupation as compared to someone who takes care of the yard when they have free time and on the weekends. Below are some of the most common features that can be used to distinguish between lawns maintained by the pros versus the average joes:


You may not have ever used an edger, but they are pretty common for homeowners to attempt to use to really clean up their lawn. These devices, also known as weed whackers or trimmers, edge out smaller patches of grass that a lawn mower simply cannot reach.

Edgers are typically used to clean up the spaces in between a paved flower bed and the lawn. They are also pretty commonly utilized to clean out longer pieces of grass (or sometimes, weeds) that can grow between the yard and the curbside.

But the important thing about edgers is how they are true signifiers of a yard’s level of maintenance. Once you know what a lawn looks like when it has been edged or weed whacked, it is difficult to return to a standard of maintenance that does not include edging. It may be possible to ask a lawn company to edge a small part of your lawn, or to borrow a weed wacker from an experienced friend, to see the difference for yourself. If you like what you see, then you should pay for it to happen on a regular basis, per the growth of your weeds and grass requires.

Plant and vegetation assistance

Another example by which the experts like the lawn mowing professionals of Midwest Lawn make the case that professionals simply do it better is plants and vegetation. Some people have no sense of a green thumb. And yet, if a person has the choice between dead and rotting plants, or lively, growing vegetation, they will probably choose the latter!

How, then, does this relate to lawn mowing? Well, lawn care professionals are able to set their trimming guard on their mowers to the appropriate height in order to not cut too much into the species of grass in your yard. In addition, expert lawn care professionals are able to provide extensive services in thatch management and other solutions to incentivize healthy plant growth.

Fertilization and flower bed management are other amenities in which a lawn care professional will likely have more knowledge and experience. These are just some of the benefits that can be provided by simply paying a lawn care company to service your yard!
