DIY vs Professional Lawn Care

Is your lawn in need of some tender love and care, but you aren’t sure if you should do the work yourself or hire a professional? At Arbor-Nomics, we are excited to provide high quality lawn care services for Atlanta, Georgia area home and business owners. We enjoy helping our customers find ways to improve the condition of their lawn, and we want you to achieve the same level of success with your property. While some may prefer to take the DIY path, there are many reasons to invest in the services of lawn care professionals.

The Problem with Taking the Do It Yourself Approach for Lawn Care
While certain tasks like mowing the grass or watering the lawn can be performed successfully by handy homeowners, some advanced techniques are best left to professional care. Many property owners try to source How-To articles from websites or video tutorials. Unfortunately, there is a lot of conflicting information that can confuse or misinform well meaning individuals. Mistakes made during fertilization, soil balancing, weed suppression, aeration and overseeding and other complex projects can damage your lawn long term.

Resources Required for DIY Lawn Maintenance
In addition to the potential risk, performing your own advanced lawn care tasks require valuable resources. A lot of time and energy will need to be invested in education and experience through trial and error. Also, fertilizers, preventer, weed control materials, spreaders and specialized tools and equipment can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. It can be frustrating to invest so much money and time into various projects, only to discover that fixing certain errors will require even more training, tools and hours of hard work.

What You’ll Receive by Investing in Professional Lawn Care Services
Modern families often have a never-ending list of responsibilities. It can be difficult to manage so many tasks, and lawn care often gets left on the backburner. Arbor-Nomics’ certified lawn care specialists receive extensive training and education. They also have years of hands on, personal experience performing a large variety of services. Whereas other Atlanta lawn care service companies may have only one or two certified techs, every single Arbor-Nomics tech is required to have a State Pesticide Certification. That means all our landscape specialists know how to handle pesticides safely and how to apply them correctly.

Our CLSs receive ongoing education and training about turf, ornamental trees and shrubs, so they can answer all your questions knowledgeably. Initial training for Arbor-Nomics CLSs lasts 4-6 weeks, while other companies normally train their technicians for just a few days. Arbor-Nomics’ landscape specialists can assist you with disease control, pests, ornamental tree and shrub care and more. When you invest in professional lawn maintenance, you’ll have peace of mind, knowing that your property is in the best hands. The affordable costs, quality performance and timely completion of professional services also makes it a practical decision that will deliver many rewards over the life of your home or commercial property.
