Believe it or not, now is the time to pick your lawn care company for the spring, summer, and fall.
There may still be snow on the ground but if you start making calls now, companies will be more receptive to working with you because they are in the process of making their weekly schedules now.
Use services like Angie's List, the Better Business Bureau, and Yelp to determine the best lawn care company for you. Look at past reviews for each company but keep in mind you can't please everyone and every company may have a bad review here or there. It's more of an aggregate number of positive (or negative) reviews you should look for.
Your local Ferndale Adviser may have a few names of local companies they can provide you as well, a referral is always a good way to find a good company.
Good luck and let's hope it will be a nice green Spring!
