TAKING CARE OF YOUR LAWN: TO DIY OR HIRE A PROFESSIONAL
When it comes to beautifying your lawn it can be overwhelming deciding whether you should take on the task by yourself or hire a lawn care professional. This decision may depend on your schedule, what kind of work your lawn needs, and yard size. Attempting to upkeep your yard by yourself may lead to expensive fixes or dangerous mistakes if you do not have experience trimming hedges and bushes. A professional will also do a much better job of tidying up after since they have it down to a routine. However, many have found gardening and lawn care to be a relaxing activity, time to spend outdoors. Also, by taking on the task by yourself you can save money (about $160 to $200 per month, according to Angie’s List) and feel accomplished by creating something beautiful on your property.
Based on what kind of work your lawn needs, DIY may be the way to go, but other tasks require a professional’s expertise. Whether you choose to take care of your lawn yourself or hire a lawn care professional, the most important thing is to have a beautiful space that feels like home.
