Can you be sufficiently satisfied with the final result at your own hands? Is it time well spent?
Put another way, do you have a green thumb that will reward you for your efforts?
Or would you be better off focusing your attention on an alternate area? (There’s no shame in identifying areas of weakness, and calling in an expert!)
- How large is your yard, and how busy is your life?
- Have you been constantly pressured to get to the chores?
- Do they get put off until they are overgrown projects that become twice as difficult?
- How much time would you likely spend each week doing the work, getting products you need, and cleaning up the mess?
Perhaps you have the talent and/or desire to have fun in the flower beds, if you could focus your attention on just that.
Then select a lawn care service to get help with the tedious chores to free up time for the fun and rewarding parts.
Don’t overlook the fact that your own health is as significant as that of your yard and should factor into your decision!
- Is gardening an enjoyable, therapeutic pastime when you finally get into it?
- Does including it in your life, at some level, make sense for your physical and emotional health?
- What can you eliminate that obligates or stresses you, or wastes money, so you can find the time and resources to garden?
- Can you challenge yourself (or a partner) to exchange some bad habits for this healthy hobby?
The benefits of turning over a new leaf (or lawn) can be tremendous. There’s no time like the present to evaluate priorities and establish some balance in your life!
These are important questions that deserve your time to reflect and anticipate before making a decision about lawn care services.
You should have a rather accurate idea of what it costs you in money, time and energy to do your own yard care. This is the only way to see the value in paying the fee to someone else.
Take the time to know what you want and need. Then make the effort to find the best person or company to give you that.
