6 Reasons to Hire a Portsmouth Lawn Service

With it's founding in 1752, it doesn't get much more historic than Portsmouth. And those of us who've lived here long enough know that there's way more to this city than the Navy Yard. Olde Towne, for example, has one of the highest number of historic buildings anywhere in the country, including the iconic Portsmouth Courthouse.

If you're sick of the Navy and the tourist traps, the beach isn't far, and you're a short hop to any larger city on the eastern seaboard. With so much to do, it's quite clear that you shouldn't hassle with your lawn.

Benefits of hiring a professional lawn care service

Why go out and hire a Portsmout lawn care professional? Let's see how many reasons we can list.

1 - You're an active person with better things to do than push a lawn mower on the weekends. Should be reason enough right?
2 - When was the last time you sharpened your mower blade? Oh, never? Well you're killing your lawn every time you cut it.
3 - You don't want your kids to lose a toe...ouch.
4 - Professionals have access to better chemical treament than you can buy at the local hardware store. This means your lawn will be greener, and no risk of turning it yellow.
5 - A better lawn equals better yard games, and yard games are awesome.
6 - Do we really have to keep doing this?

The most convenient way to manage your lawn

If you're still reading, you're probably realizing your in way in over your head, and that you need help from a professional.

But isn't hiring contractors such a pain?

Well, it used to be. But not anymore. At least in the lawn care industry.

In the past you'd have to flag down a truck, respond to a flyer, or deal with the trolls on craigslist. Not that there's anything wrong with that; it just tends to be quite the hassle. So much so that it makes pushing a mower in the coastal humidity sound appealing.

Now, you can easily book one of the area's top lawn mowing services in a matter of minutes. Our customer support staff is here to help, and our app (yes a mobile phone app for lawn care!) makes making changes to your service oh so simple. Not to mention that all of our professionals are screened and skill tested, and have to maintain high ratings to stay on the platform.

So spend more time living live and less time on your lawn - book online today!
