How To Select A Lawn Care Service

As it is known to happen, summer is nearly over again in Minnesota. You probably don’t want to spend the last few precious summer weekends maintaining your lawn. It would be nice to hire someone else to do it for you, but how do you decide on a lawn care service provider? Think about a few of these deciding factors:

What Services do you Need?

If all your lawn needs is a quick trim, you might be able to get away with hiring a relative or neighborhood kid to do it, but what if your lawn requires a bit more care? Not only does hiring a lawn care service take care of mowing and trimming, but also sidewalk and driveway edging, landscaping, aeration, tree and shrub maintenance, irrigation repair and more. You also might need help with fall clean up, weed control, and fertilizing regimens. (Fall is a good time to fertilize before winter hits.) Keep in mind the services your need (or don’t need) before hiring a company.

Are Their Services Guaranteed?

Run their references! It can be reassuring to hear a company promise low prices without seeing your lawn and determining the amount of work to be completed, but does the company stand behind their work? How do you know if they are licensed or not? With Ehlinger Lawn Service, you can be sure that your satisfaction is guaranteed and our technicians are thoroughly trained. See our team in action in our lawn care video.

What Kind of Pricing are We Talking About?

Different lawn care providers have many different pricing options, depending on their services. When you are looking for a provider, look for someone with free service checks to determine your needs and approximate cost. You can contact Ehlinger Lawn Service for pricing information or complete a free quick quote online based on your address.

Ask Around!

The grass is alway greener across the street, right? Well, ask your friends and neighbors about their lawn care provider. If they don’t use a provider, ask other customers that have used lawn care services about their experience. Gathering case studies is a great way to gauge the results from any service.


When it comes to leaving the care of your lawn in the hands of someone else, it is important to make sure they are the best. Do your homework to find the best service provider before you pick a lawn care team. Enjoy the rest of your summer, because before you know it, you’re going to be thinking about snow removal instead of lawn care!

Thanks for these great tips! Is it out of line to ask what other yards they mow locally? I've hired pros before only to find out they do a sloppy job.

It's always a good idea to check online reviews, whether that be on Google or social media accounts. Also, ask the company if they have any current clients who will speak to you about their experience with them.
