About Me

landscaping for the fun of kids

My name is Amelia - welcome to my blog! I am the mother of four very active boys ranging from 9 years to 3 years. When I am making improvements around my home and my property, I try to focus on how I can make those improvements while keeping things fun for the kids. This past year, I worked with a landscaper to create an outdoor environment that was fun for the kids, but looked nice from the road. I wanted the landscaper to design some elements into the yard that the kids could limb around on and let their imaginations run wild without having to worry about things getting destroyed in the process.

What To Consider Before Hiring A Lawn Care Company

Mowing the lawn can be a task you cannot do yourself for many different reasons. When this is your situation, you need to hire a lawn care company to do the work for you. However, before you hire someone, it is important to consider several factors that can influence your decision.


The services any company offers is one of the more important facts, especially if you prefer a well manicured lawn. Most companies have different types of services they offer beyond cutting the grass. You need to consider this, so you can pick a company that can handle your requests.

For example, some offer yard trimming as a part of their mowing service. Trimming is usually done with a lawn edger, so the individual creates a small space between the hard surfaces and your lawn. This one task keeps the grass from covering portions of your driveway, walkway or sidewalk.

Other services may also include tree and bush trimming, while others include watering the lawn. For this reason, you want to know exactly what services they will complete when the workers come to your home.


The price for lawn care may be different for each company you contact. For this reason, you want to consider the quality of their work as compared to the amount they charge. It is generally worth the money if the company offers superior quality compared to other companies in your area.

With this in mind, it is a good idea to ask for references that you can drive past, because it would give you the opportunity to see their work first hand. In many cases, the company has already asked previous customers for their permission to highlight the work they offer. When a company cannot provide references, it is best to look for a different lawn care professional.


Aside from the cost and services the companies offer, you need to ask who will be doing the work. Larger companies may be able to give you lower prices, but when a different people show up each time, it is difficult to get the same look for your yard twice.

This is one reason why some companies have fewer employees and send the same workers to specific houses each week. When the same people work on your lawn, they cut it in very specific ways. By doing so, you know the quality you are getting and you are able to recognize the people working on your property each time.

Before hiring a lawn care company, like Williams Lawn Care & Landscaping, Inc., you need to consider some aspects. By having some information in advance, you will have a better chance of hiring the right company the first time you need your lawn cut.
