Should I DO It Myself or should I let the pros do it?
Most people are just out to save money. We are too. Here are some helpful considerations on what type of services you may want to do yourself, and which you may want to hire out.
We have commercial equipment, and can provide great value for jobs that require such equipment. However, for small jobs like pulling weeds and short “honey do lists,” we recommend finding a cheap hourly worker.
If you have a small, flat lawn, it's probably best to handle it yourself with a push or self-propelled mower from a big box store. We’re a service industry that has a certain amount of overhead just to get to your jobsite, so we have a minimum charge of $60.
However, if your property is medium to large in size, or has slopes that are tricky, you may want to hire out our services. Commercial mowers have come a long way in allowing professionals to mow steep slopes and large lawns in shorter amounts of time, but they come with a big price tag that puts the service out of range for many homeowners.
Leaf blowing is a chore that is not all that strenuous, but it can get out of control if you don’t stay on top of it. We don’t recommend letting all the leaves fall and before trying to blow them with a residential blower.
Our commercial blowers are a considerable time saver, and have about twice the blowing power (CFM and MPH) as a residential blower.
Pine Straw Installation
Pine straw costs about $5.00 per bale (labor only). The average person can install about ten bales per hour, depending on how easy the access is and how many obstacles there are to “cut in” around.
Mulch installation costs anywhere from $3.00 to $4.25 per 2 cubic foot bag (labor only), and the average person can install about 10 bags per hour.
Weeding & Trimming
Yes we can pull weeds, but probably not too much faster than you. We do have tank sprayers that can spray Roundup on open areas, but if you need hand weeding of garden beds, that may be a good service to hire out to a neighborhood boy or do yourself. Our expensive equipment and overhead requires us to do a volume of higher-paying equipment based work to remain profitable. Small jobs like this fall into our minimum charges for small jobs.
Our commercial trimmers and blowers make trimming and cleaning up considerably faster than the time it would take most homeowners. However, if you have hedge trimmers, a tarp and a rake, you can definitely do it yourself.
The trick is to make sure you don’t let your shrubs get out of hand. You should trim your hedges at least two times per year for most shrubs, so they don't get too thick for normal hedge trimmers to cut through. Battery-operated hedge trimmers have come a long way in power and run time and are an excellent option for homeowners who will only use them a couple times a year and don’t want to deal with gas equipment.
If it's a small job, you can handle it with a small, homeowner’s chainsaw, especially if you have a place to dispose of the debris on site.
If it’s a large tree or pile of debris, it would probably be in your best interest for a company like ours with a dump trailer and commercial chainsaws to do the removal for you.
