5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Lawn Care Company

All lawn care companies are the same, right? We get asked this question all the time, and the sentiment couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure – the services offered are similar, but the people and quality are what really make the difference. So what should you think about when choosing a lawn care company? Let’s find out.


Social proof is everything in today’s review-driven world. Online reviews are everywhere, and they’re a great way to weed out the subpar lawn care providers (pun intended). Google and Facebook reviews are a great place to start, but be weary of companies that have all good or all bad reviews. That’s usually a sign that something isn’t right.


We’re proud of our Northeast Ohio roots. Our technicians are Ohio grass experts because they’ve dealt with it their entire lives. As a local company, we also support local communities and charities because we care about this area as much as you do.

Local companies have a better understanding of your lawn, so you can rest easy knowing they’ll get it right the first time.


Ask your neighbors who they use for their lawn care. Well – only ask the ones with nice lawns. Most of our business comes from customer referrals because we take the time to do the job right. Chances are, a few of your neighbors will tell you they use Grass Master for their lawn care.

The proof is in the pudding with this one. If your neighbor has a nice lawn and recommends a company, that company knows their way around lawn fertilizer.


Lawn care is all about quality. It’s easy to tell if a lawn care company does a poor job on your yard. But it’s hard to know if a company will do a good job with your lawn based on promises alone. We recommend asking your perspective lawn care company if they have referrals or before and after pictures so you can see the work they do.

Again – your neighbors’ yards are a good way to gauge the quality of work their lawn care company performs.


Paying for lawn care service under the table happens all the time, but we don’t recommend it. Licensed and insured lawn care professionals dedicated their life and career to lawn care, so you can be confident they’ll do a good job. If a non-insured lawn care provider gets hurt on your property, you’re likely liable. And if they damage your property, their insurance won’t cover it.

Bottom line: hiring a licensed and insured lawn care service is a must.
