Getting lawn care in Phoenix

skyline"

There are several reasons Phoenix residents choose to work with a lawn care company.

Phoenix’s hot, dry desert weather is difficult on lawns, and lawn care companies offer lawn aeration. Lawn aerators poke holes in the lawn so that air, water and nutrients can get to the roots. The lawn care company then installs and/or manages a drip or sprinkler system, possibly with a timer that waters your lawn at the ideal time.

Residents also use lawn care companies in Phoenix to install xeriscape landscaping. Xeriscape is a type of landscaping that uses native desert plants that are attractive yet do not need supplemental watering. Xeriscapes are an environmentally and economically friendly choice for many people and a specialty of some landscaping companies in Phoenix.

Part-time residents, like retirees in Sun Lakes and Sun City, also hire lawn care companies when they are not in Phoenix. Hiring lawn services can be particularly helpful when weeds pop-up or plants grow over property lines, potentially causing homeowners association fines.

How to choose lawn care in Phoenix

When selecting a lawn care provider in Phoenix, there are several factors to consider.

First, narrow down what you want the company to do. Lawn care companies specialize in different services, and homes have different needs. Some companies will only design your landscape and plant, while others only maintain your lawn or provide pest and weed control. Some companies do it all.

Common lawn services include:

  • Yard maintenance or cleanups, such as regular lawn mowing service, palm tree trimming and leaf blowing (this can be especially helpful for homes with a swimming pool by reducing debris that would wind up in the pool)
  • Landscape design and planting (grass, vines, trees); a professional can help select the right plants for the available space, sunlight and water, whether it’s a xeriscape garden or a green lawn and colorful flowering vines
  • Installing sod, which can help grass grow more efficiently in the off-season
  • Installing artificial turf, an increasingly popular low-maintenance choice in Phoenix
  • Lawn aeration
  • Pest and weed control

Second, consider when or how often you would like lawn maintenance. Recurring service plans are usually weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or bi-monthly. Many companies offering lawn care in Phoenix offer a discount or package price for a regularly scheduled service plan.

Next, set a budget. Phoenix residents can expect to pay a minimum of $20 per lawn maintenance visit or several thousand dollars for landscape design and install. Before scheduling and paying for lawn maintenance or landscaping service in Phoenix, ask some key questions to get a quote and make a decision:

  • Is the company licensed? The Arizona Registrar of Contractors requires a license for excavating, digging, trenching, filling and installing pipes for lawn aeration.
  • What services does the company provide? Can you get everything you want from one company, like landscape design and monthly service, or do you need to find multiple companies?
  • How are costs determined? By yard size or services?
  • How long has the company been in business?
  • Are there service areas or borders the company doesn’t cross? If so, the company likely has experience with common issues there, like pests or the soil makeup.
  • What products does the company use and are they eco/kid/pet-friendly?
  • For landscape companies, ask for pictures or even addresses of completed projects.
  • For artificial turf and design, you can visit commercial projects to get an idea of workmanship, design and available products like synthetic turf.

There are several reputable companies offering lawn care in Phoenix, so it is up to the consumer to do the research and find the company that best suits their needs and budget.
