are you unhappy with your lawn care provider

Gardening is one of the most popular hobbies in the world, and individuals invest a lot of time and money into keeping their garden in tip-top shape. It’s very common for garden enthusiasts to invest in lawn care services to give their garden the professional treatment it deserves. Unfortunately, due to recent events, a large number of lawn care providers have been increasing the prices of their lawn services for their customers.

When it comes to lawn care providers it can be tempting to stick with what you know, but what if you’re no longer getting the best value for your money? It’s possible that you’re currently being overcharged for your lawn care services.


Rolling the lawn

Lawn rolling is a practice almost as old as the very concept of a lawn itself.

Cultivation of outdoor spaces may have started as early as the 16th century, but it wasn't until the 17th century that we would begin to see lawns as we know them today, with closely shorn grass. In those days, lawns belonged only to wealthy land owners, for whom the lawn was a mark of wealth and status; only the rich could afford to hire help to cut and weed the grass. Bear in mind this was in the days before lawn mowers, so everything would've been done with manual tools such as scythes and lawn rollers.

Over time, as lawn games such as bowls, cricket, and golf increased in popularity, so did the trend of lawn maintenance. Lawn rollers are the perfect example of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it': a classic, old-fashioned design that's still used today on cricket fields and golf courses to keep the surface flat and firm.

There are a lot of different reasons that a person might choose to use a lawn care provider – not every one has the time or ability to care for their lawn to the extent it needs. Some lawns are more high maintenance than others, for example, if they're currently struggling with a pest issue or fungus infestation.

Whatever your reason for hiring professional services may be, it’s important to know that you’re getting your money's worth. But how do you know if your current lawn care service provider is doing the best job, and is giving you the best price?

There are a lot of expressions around that use grass growing as a unit of time measurement, such as “he’s not one to let the grass grow under his feet”, or “it’s like watching grass grow and paint dry”. But all of these expressions beg the question, just how long does it take for grass to grow?
