When you are considering lawn care for your Dallas/Fort Worth or Plano business, you have two choices to make: handle it yourself or get a professional landscaping company to take care of it for you. As we’ll discuss below, it makes sense in almost every case to hire professional mowing and landscaping services. And if you do choose to go with professionals, you’ll also have to make a decision: is a service that deals in commercial landscaping necessary, or can you go with a company that primarily deals in residential mowing?

In our blog today, we’re going to address both of these situations. First we’ll take a look at whether or not you should take care of landscaping yourself, and then we’ll talk about what kind of landscaper you should choose.

Should You Handle Landscaping Yourself?

Let’s be honest, you have better things to do, because as a business owner or manager, you have a lot on your plate. Not only do you have to worry about the physical aspects of the business, but you also have to worry about budgets, employees, inventory, and everything that comes with keeping those important parts up and running.

What don’t you want to have to worry about? Your landscaping. You shouldn’t have to deal with keeping a lawn mower on the premises (or lugging one from home), keeping the lawn watered so that it doesn’t bake in the sun, reading up on the right kind of fertilizer to use, and trimming the trees. Of course, you probably don’t want to deal with raking leaves or fixing your irrigation system either.

When you go with a commercial landscaping company like Landscape Solutions for your DFW or Plano business, it’s one less thing you have to worry about. You’re a professional, so you should spend all of your time focusing on the business that you care so much for. Let us take care of the lawn so that you have more time to deal with the problems that are sure to arise.

Should You Hire a Landscaper That Specializes In Commercial Properties?

At first you might think to yourself, “Lawn mowing is lawn mowing. What’s the difference if I choose a commercial landscaper or one who takes care of residential lawns?”

As we discussed in this blog, there are more differences between residential and commercial landscapers than you might realize. You see, a residential mower can show up pretty much any time between 8 am and 5 pm, and no one really cares if they’re a few hours late. As long as it gets done, it gets done. But when it comes to commercial landscapers, being a few hours late can mean that they’re arriving right at the busiest time of day for a business. If you’re a fast-food restaurant, you don’t really want a riding mower outside your front door between 11 am and 1 pm, do you?

That’s not all. Residential mowers really don’t have to worry about working around people much, while it’s critically important that commercial landscapers don’t scare potential customers away from your business by getting too close. Commercial mowers also have to be much more careful of the glass that covers many storefronts.

Ready For the Best In Commercial Mowing?

When you take everything we mentioned above into account, we hope the choice is clear. You should definitely hire someone to take care of your business’ lawn, and choosing a commercial landscaper just makes sense.
