How much do lawn mowing services cost in Quebec?

It takes a lot of time and effort to maintain a beautiful garden. If you don't have a green thumb, hiring a lawn maintenance company is a great alternative. They can help you with weed control, pest control, fall aeration, fertilizer injections and much more.

What are lawn care services? 

Lawn care services refer to an array of different services such as pest control, weed control, aeration, seeding, fertilization, soil testing and irrigation, which make it possible to maintain your lawn healthy throughout the year. 

Weeding

Because undesirable plants in the grass hamper your lawn's nutrient retention capacities, proper lawn treatment begins with weed control. Weed management also improves your lawn's overall beauty. Weeding can be done in two ways: manually pulling them out or using a weed killer, which is a more permanent option. 

Aeration

The lawn is perforated with little holes as part of this treatment. This improves the soil's ability to hold water and nutrients, which aids root development and makes your lawn more vigorous. This service requires the use of specialized gardening equipment (aerators).

Seeding and Fertilizing

Fertilizing your lawn is the best approach to prevent pests and lawn diseases as well as promote the growth and health of your grass. Fertilizers or compost provide all of the nutrients and minerals that your grass requires to recuperate from the hot summer months or the cold winter months.

Is it worth it to hire a lawn service?

If you're considering DIY lawn care, it's likely because you want to save money. Doing lawn care by yourself may appear less expensive at first, but it may end up costing you more in the long run. 

Individuals who don't have access to commercial-grade supplies or have the necessary experience may try different approaches to revive their lawn until they find the solution.  While there may be some immediate savings, there are generally hidden costs associated with lawn maintenance. There are a lot of things that can go wrong if you don't have a skilled professional managing your lawn on a regular basis.

Benefits of hiring a lawn maintenance company

Save Money

If you don't mow your lawn on a regular basis, and then discover you need to hire someone to do it during the summer, you'll have to pay more money than usual because your grass will be overgrown and full of weeds. The situation will repeat itself the following year, and you will find yourself paying a lot of money just to keep your grass in decent shape.

Instead, you can hire a gardener on a regular basis and enjoy a beautiful garden all year long without feeling bad about not taking care of your lawn. If you buy a lawn care package, you won’t have to buy any products of special gardening equipment so you will be able to save a considerable amount of money and enjoy peace of mind all year long.  

Guaranteed Results

You'll get better results if you hire a lawn care service. Lawn care professionals know exactly how to diagnose and treat different lawn problems, which will save you time and money in the long run. It's very usual for individuals to misdiagnose problems, wasting money not only on different products but also on damage that goes unaddressed.

360 Approach 

Professional gardeners know what works since they have many years of experience in the field. What is the recommended amount of water for your lawn? When is the best time to fertilize? There are different factors involved in lawn care that you may not be aware of, such as when is the best time to seed your lawn, how to get rid of certain weeds, when to aerate, what is the ideal mowing height, which nutrients your type of grass needs, etc. A lawn care professional takes a 360 approach when it comes to taking care of your lawn.
