When you hire Pure Green, we are aware that you chose us over many great lawn care companies in Nashville. We can attest to the success of Great Green Grass at Pure Green, but we know it’s not that simple when choosing a company to care for your lawn. There are a few important questions to ask before you just hire anyone to do your lawn care.
Hiring a Nashville Lawn Company: The Decision
The first step is of course making the decision that you are going to hire a company to take care of your lawn maintenance rather than go the DIY route. This is the first major hurdle we see when discussing care with clients. Some things you may be debating:
Is it worth it?
If it wasn't worth it, we wouldn't be in business. We can wholeheartedly say that yes, a beautiful lawn that you're proud of is 100% worth it! You may think you know exactly how to care for your lawn yourself, but the reality is, the majority of potential clients we meet don't have the knowledge or experience to get the job done in the best way. And even if you do have the expertise, who wants to waste their weekends actually performing the tasks themselves?? Often, our services are easier AND cheaper long-term than DIY-ing. (See what lawn care is really worth.)
What services do I need?
Consider the current state of your lawn. Is it more weeds than grass? Do you have a big problem with fleas, ticks, or other pests? You’ll need to do some research into each company and make a decision if their services are a right fit. For instance, if you’re looking for someone to mow your lawn, it is unfortunately not us.
How knowledgable is the staff as a whole?
We cannot stress this enough. If you have questions about an application, ASK! Any technician should be able to tell you why it is necessary or beneficial to your lawn. It also helps to be able to learn a little on your own, which is where our regularly updated blog full of tips and tricks comes in handy! You can also download our ebooks or visit our weed gallery at any time for further information.
Are they upfront about what to expect?
Pure Green customers can find exactly what our basic package includes along with the schedule of applications right here on our website. We make every effort to provide transparency in our services and prices. We have heard many a story about clients being blindsided from not-so-honest companies, and we're looking to bring the trust back to our industry. That said, Pure Green wants success for your lawn as much as you do. When a company insists on an entire package for your lawn care, it's not that they're always trying to upsell. From start to finish, we want your lawn looking fantastic and typically the best way to acheive this is through a complete process - one that requires year-round attention.
Lincense and insurance?
This seems like a no-brainer or maybe a non-issue, but under-the-table payments and business practices run rampant in the lawn care industry. Sure you might be able to find cheaper work just paying Joe Shmoe off the street in cash, but if Joe falls on your property and isn’t insured, the liability is yours. And nobody wants that headache. Likewise, all technicians should be licensed. Some companies get by with only a few licensed technicians, which is just not in your best interest.
