When is the best time to set up my lawn care package ?
Many people believe that the best time to set up their lawn care package is in the spring because this is when lawn care companies do the most advertising and because people associate lawn care with spring time. However, what people do not realize is that in the fall lawn care companies usually have their best prices of the season and also the fall is a great time to prepare a lawn for the spring.
How to save money in the fall:
Most lawn care companies offer “fall prepay” pricing every fall as a way to generate cash flow and to reward loyal customers. Typically, this is the lowest prepay price offering of the year because companies realize that customers will only prepay for services this early if there is significant savings involved. For this reason it is useful to ask your provider or potential provider if they have any special discounts for prepaying early. Some companies will even add a free fall service as an added incentive.
Fall lawn care services:
Another great reason to order lawn care in the fall is that fall is the best time to establish root growth. 75% of all root growth actually happens in the fall and this is enhanced by fall fertilizer. In addition to this, fall is a great time to prepare the lawn for winter. A “winterizer fertilizer will help protect the lawn from common diseases that can establish in the spring after a tough winter. For these two reasons, lawn service in the fall can speed up the spring recovery and ensure that you have a thick, green, healthy lawn much earlier in the spring.
