Between attending meetings, managing inventory, and keeping customers happy, most business owners don’t have the time to micro-manage their lawn maintenance—that’s where commercial lawn mower services come in. Partnering with a proven lawn care company saves businesses time and money by cultivating healthy, sustainable, and professional-looking landscapes while avoiding the trial-and-error that comes with DIY lawn care. 

Even if you know exactly how you want your property to look, it might not be obvious which lawn care company is best for your business. Some lawn maintenance companies specialize in specific areas of landscaping, such as lawn mower services, while others are more well-rounded. When choosing a lawn care company to partner with, businesses should consider the scope of their project and the reputation of the company they want to partner with.  

Know Your Needs 

When choosing a lawn mower service, businesses should start by defining which lawn maintenance services they need, and which aren’t a priority. For example, an office building might hire a weekly or even daily lawn mowing service to keep their outdoor greenery looking spic-and-span, while a museum might need help constructing an outdoor garden. At this step, it’s helpful to formulate a comprehensive list of all the landscaping issues your company would like addressed, then cross-referencing that list with local landscapers until you find a match.  

Local Expertise Is King 

When it comes to landscaping, there’s no need to settle for a one-size-fits-all approach, especially in colder regions like the northern Midwest. Local lawn maintenance companies have experience dealing with the weather conditions endemic to their community and can better tackle climate-related issues like snow removal.  

Communication Is Key 

A good lawn maintenance company is easy to reach and responsive to your questions. Businesses should look for a lawn care company that responds promptly to emails and returns calls within one or two business days. If issues arise with your landscaping, like unexpected brown patches or drainage issues, clear lines of communication will help resolve the problem as soon as possible.  

References Matter 

Once you’ve settled on a potential landscaping partner, check out their previous work and talk with their current and former clients to get a feel for the company’s reliability and quality of work. Online reviews, in-person meetings, and advice from other businesses in the community can all paint a more complete picture of a landscaping company. Even if a landscaping company checks all your boxes, if their reviews come back negative, it might be a good idea to continue the search.  

Get It in Writing 

Before you sign anything, make sure you understand your new landscaper’s scope of lawn maintenance services, pricing structure, and payment terms to avoid nasty surprises down the road. Get everything in writing to avoid disputes.
