If your home is on the market in the summer time, you can stay competitive by having a lush, green lawn and a well-cared for yard. If you don’t have the time to commit to a lawn and yard care regime, you should consider hiring a lawncare company to take care of it for you. This will ensure that you yard is looking great and your curb appeal is attracting buyers.
Here are some common lawn and yard care costs:
Lawn Cutting & Fertilizing
Most lawncare companies will offer a spring start up package that includes raking, aerating, fertilizing and mowing your lawn. Depending on the scope of services, these packages can cost between $150-$300. If you can’t do this job yourself, you should invest in the service to give your yard the best start for the season. Learn how to take care of your lawn.
You can also pay for on-going maintenance of your lawn, $150-$450/month depending on the services included in your package. This usually includes a weekly or bi-weekly mowing, insect and weed control and fertilization a few times in the season. In some cases, the company will haul away the debris or you’ll have to leave it out on your waste pick-up day.
Removing large trees from your yard can be a difficult and dangerous job. It should always be done by a professional arborist or tree removal company. They have the proper training, experience and equipment to do it safely. Expect to pay around $150 for an inspection and up to $2000 for a large and complicating tree removal service. The cost range is so broad because every tree is different and presents its own unique set of challenges. Obviously, smaller trees in more accessible locations will be less expensive to remove.
Flower Bed Maintenance & Installation
Flower beds are a great way to add vibrant colour to your home and enhance your curb appeal. If you are unable to properly maintain your flower beds and weed them regularly, it could diminish your curb appeal instead. Some lawncare companies will include flower bed maintenance in their yard care packages, so if you’re already spending money for them to care for the lawn, you might pay an additional $25-$65/month for them to weed and fertilize your flower beds too.
If you would like to have a new flower bed installed by best landscapers in Edmonton, they can help you with the design including flower suggestions, install the beds and provide advice on maintenance based on the plants in the garden. Landscapers will charge between $1000-$3000, depending on the size and scale of the project.
