- Check with AngiesList.com to get feedback from your area about lawn care companies.
I do not think Angie’s List even has anything on our area at this time..
- Be sure the company meets state and local regulations. Insurance, Licenses, and any certifications needed for chemical spraying.
All check except certifications for chemical spraying – we don’t do pesticides and other similar chemicals
- Be weary of any company that promises a quick cure. Plants are living organisms and require special treatment. Quick fixes may actually cause more damage than anything else. And a damaged plant takes that much longer to cure.
We find the root of the problem, and discuss what we think with you. We research before we take action. Measure twice, cut once. No fast acting sprays here1 (unless they are weeds, of course).
- Any changes to a contract or service agreement should be brought to a customers attention and signed off by all parties involved.
We have a Service Agreement, no contract. If the service agreement is changed, we make it known that it is changed. If you do not agree with the changes, you do not have to accept it. We put customer satisfaction first. And our agreement helps us provide just that!
- A good lawn care company will offer tips and suggestions to home owners for no other purpose than to just help out.
We do this often!
- Manage your expectations. Be aware that jobs may be delayed because of weather or a lack of supplies. Check that contingencies are included in the written contract.
If a delay occurs and your service is not completed within one week, it’s free. Says so right in our agreement.
We think we scored really high with this list. What do you think?
Angie’s List actually compiled a pretty useful blog post. Check it out! ksat.com.
