3 Critical Questions to Ask When Hiring Lawn Service in Indiana

3 Critical Questions to Ask When Hiring Lawn Service in Indiana

When you hire a lawn service to handle everything your yard needs, there are certain critical questions that you should ask before you sign a contract. Learn about three of these questions when you're looking for a lawn service company in Noblesville, Carmel, Westfield, and nearby cities in Indiana.

1. Does the company have general liability and workers' comp insurance?

One of the first things you need to do as a property owner is to ensure that anyone who comes to do any work on your property is properly licensed and insured. For insurance, that means they need general liability and workers' comp. Have the lawn company show you proof of insurance so that you know they are telling the truth.

If a company does not have insurance and a worker is injured while at your property, you could end up facing liability issues for their injury. Avoid all of that by hiring a lawn service company with the right coverage.

2. Can the company provide all of the services you require?

  • Snow Removal

When the growing season begins, it's vital to get your lawn and landscaping maintenance routine established. Grass and plants need to be regularly maintained throughout the growing season to ensure that they grow properly.

Learn about three of the bare necessities that your lawn and landscape need in Noblesville, Westfield, Carmel, and other nearby areas in Indiana.

Establish a proper mowing schedule.

One of the most important factors in lawn health is a proper mowing schedule. Typically, the Indiana growing season begins in late March or early April and lasts until late October or early November. During that time, it's vital to mow at routine intervals, such as weekly or bi-weekly mowing. Hiring a professional mowing company such as Spider Lawn & Landscape ensures your lawn will always be mowed on the same routine basis. We always follow best practices for lawn mowing and maintenance and all of our mowing visits include string-trimming, edging, and blowing.

4 Reasons Your Lawn Needs Aeration & Overseeding

4 Reasons Your Lawn Needs Aeration & Overseeding

Routine lawn maintenance goes a long way in creating a thicker, healthier lawn. Aeration and overseeding are great for promoting a healthier, fuller, and greener lawn.

When these two services are performed properly and in a timely manner, almost any lawn can benefit from aeration and overseeding. Here are four reasons why your lawn in Noblesville, Carmel, Westfield, and the surrounding areas needs core aeration and overseeding.

1. Aeration & Overseeding Promote a Healthy Lawn

Aerating and overseeding your lawn promotes its health and builds resistance to disease and weeds. Grass roots need air, water, and nutrients to grow thick, deep and strong. Over time soil becomes compacted, inhibiting the flow of nutrients getting to your lawn’s roots. Core aeration loosens and breaks up compacted soil, allowing maximum air, water, and nutrients to penetrate deep down into your lawn’s soil and root system.

Overseeding your lawn allows new grass varieties to be introduced to your lawn that will aid in resisting diseases, pest infestation, and weeds. Overseeding fills in bare or thin areas and thickens your turf, making your lawn better-suited to crowd out weeds. Fewer weeds mean a healthier, greener lawn.

2. Overseeding & Aerating Enhance Seed Germination

Aeration and overseeding enhance seed germination by providing access to the deeper parts of your soil. When you seed your lawn, a lot of seed is wasted on top and never...
