Getting lawn care in Denver

Denver skyline

Hiring a professional company for lawn care in Denver has multiple benefits. Some jobs need experience and specific equipment to succeed, and professionals can recognize small issues and fix them before they become significant problems. Using a lawn care service also keeps you from spending your valuable free time working in the yard.

The front yards in Hilltop, Cherry Creek and near City Park and Sloan’s Lake get a lot of foot traffic, and having an inviting and well-maintained helps you meet new neighbors and show the community you’re invested in the area. In areas prone to flooding, drought or stormwater runoff, experts can mitigate these challenges.

Common needs for lawn care in Denver:

  • Frost, water and ice damage that stops plants from growing or discolors the lawn
  • Too little or too much water, which turns the grass brown or makes the soil spongey
  • Insect damage from mites, beetles and other invasive bugs
  • Improper fertilization, which can be unsafe for dogs or children and kill grass
  • Dog urine — in a city with so many four-legged friends, grass can easily become damaged

Lawn care vs. landscaping services and costs in Denver

Hiring the right company for your lawn requires knowing what services you need. Lawn care and landscaping companies provide different services, though many companies in Denver may perform both.

Lawn care companies

Lawn care companies in Denver provide flat rates for one-time services, such as leaf blowing or lawn mowing, but many residents prefer service plans for weekly, monthly or seasonal services. Service plans generally cost between $50 and $100 a month, depending on the number of visits and services provided, such as:

  • Mowing
  • Lawn aeration
  • Yard clean-up
  • Pest control

Landscaping companies

Professional landscaping companies in Denver assist with many projects. Prices range from $500 to $1,000 for smaller projects or yards and can run up to $20,000 for large yards or projects. If you want a landscape design that sets your home apart, it’s best to estimate a budget of 10 to 15 percent of your home’s value for services. Landscaping companies focus on:

  • Gardening
  • Planting
  • Fertilizing
  • Sprinkler system installation
  • Irrigation

How lawn aeration helps grass and plants in Denver

Finding a company in Denver experienced with lawn aeration provides significant results for a minor cost. Lawn aeration breaks up compacted soil and removes sections of thatch to allow nutrients and air to reach grass and plant roots. This helps the lawn produce lush, healthy plants and grass.

Choosing a lawn care company in Denver

Customer reviews are an excellent place to begin your search for a lawn care company — many people are passionate about the appearance of their lawns and provide feedback on companies that do a good job. If you have friends, neighbors or relatives in Denver who use a lawn care service, ask if they’re satisfied with the results.

Once you’ve identified a short list of companies to contact, call each one for an estimate and ask questions to see if they’re a good fit for your needs.

Questions to ask lawn care or landscaping companies in Denver

  • Have you worked on a project like this before?
  • Do you have a pest application license or nursery license?
  • How much time will this project require and how will that influence cost?
  • Do you offer discounts or free estimates?
  • How many applications of treatment are needed for pest control?
  • Is this type of project suitable for my neighborhood or area?
  • What kind of maintenance and upkeep will you provide?
  • Do you have a portfolio of your previous projects I can view?

Any business in Denver that uses pesticides or provides lawn and landscaping services must have a business license from the Colorado Department of Agriculture. Pesticide application can be hazardous and should be administered by a pest control officer who has received proper training on chemicals and natural approaches to eliminating pests. Businesses that sell plants to customers must have a nursery license.
