Lawn care is easier with LawnStarter
Yes, we've all been there. Frustrated with the lawn mower - maybe it's the oil, or maybe the carburetor. Either way, it's broken, you're frustrated, and you just don't feel like mowing the lawn. Heck, it never even looked great when you mowed it yourself anyway, did it? Then, you tried to hire a lawn care service, and they didn't show. Or they did a poor job, or couldn't communicate. Trust us, we feel your pain.
That's where LawnStarter comes in. Rather than hassle with DIY work on Saturdays, or put up with the frustration of hiring a lawn service, we let you easily book a skilled lawn pro in minutes online. All of our landscapers are highly rated by our internal feedback loop, ensuring you get the best service possible. We offer recurring lawn mowing as well as most other specialty service you might need.
What makes a good lawn service
I'm sure you might be wondering, what makes a professional different than some guy with a truck? Or even the neighborhood kid? And you're right to wonder, because isn't it just cutting grass?
Well, consider the following facts. For starters, you're going to want to make sure whoever is working on your lawn is fully insured. Accidents happen, such as pebbles cracking windows or denting siding, so you'll want to make sure your service pro carries an insurance policy that protects against such an incident. You can bet the neighborhood kid doesn't have that policy.
Furthermore, equipment matters. Sure, you might be fine with the look of a push mower - and there's nothing inherently wrong with a push mower. But when was the last time you sharpened that blade? If you've never sharpened it (which most people haven't), you're going to end up tearing the grass instead of cutting it. You should sharpen every few cuts, and you know you're not about to do that. A professional sharpens blades on a weekly - if not daily - basis, ensuring that your grass is clean cut.
Finally, a professional is going to do a lot more than cut grass. They're going to know when your lawn needs mowing, and when it's worth skipping. They can tell you that your lawn is lacking nutrients, and make reccomendations on beautifying your lawn. So as it turns out, there are a number of benefits of going with a professional over doing it yourself or hiring a neighborhood kid.
