Frequently Asked Questions from some of our customers…

What is the average cost of lawn care in my area?
Lawn care costs can typically vary depending on a few factors. The quality of the soil contributes to the overall price, combining the natural factor with the business side of things. On top of this, a lot of times, there are situations in which the type of grass you have in your yard can have an effect on the price. Some grasses naturally grow thicker, requiring more time to cut, while others are more fine and therefore need to be cut slower with more care not to tear the roots out of the ground. All together, there’s a good chance you’re like to pay around $100 to $300 a month, depending on everything.

What do most people charge to mow a lawn?
The lawn companies around here are likely to charge you for services rendered based on a couple different factors. The main one being the amount of actual surface area your grass covers. On top of this, of course, location is almost always a factor. You definitely want to find as local a lawn care professional as you can or at least a company established enough to have other clients in your area already. This is not 100% necessary as many companies will offer a flat rate for specific services that won’t be affected by your location to a certain point. However, a company’s establishment also gives you a good indication of the quality of their work. If a company is family owned, this is definitely your best bet. Legacy Landscape is family owned and has been servicing the Tulsa community for over 12 years! This, along with the fact that we’ve got clients all throughout the tulsa area means that we can charge you based solely on the surface area your grass takes up. We service the Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Coweta, Jenks, Owasso, Glenpool, and Bixby areas! Most lawn care companies are likely to charge between $50 to $250 depending on the size of your property and the location as well as whether or not any portion of it requires specialized attention such as using a push mower instead of a riding mower.

How much should I pay for a French drain?
If I were you, honestly, I would spend a good amount of time getting quotes on your french drain. The average cost for getting a french drain installed is dependent on labor as well as the size of your drain (100 foot, 30 foot, 50 foot, or 40 foot french drains). Some people will charge based on the amount of soil displacement necessary as well as what kinds of sediment your ground is made up of. There’s a high chance, you’d be spending anywhere as low as $1,650 to as high as $12,250. Lawn care companies will likely give you a better price if you employ their lawn care maintenance services. This is definitely something to be considered as well when looking to get a french drain installed at your home, house, or property.

When should I start fertilizing my lawn?
If you want to have a healthy lawn, the healthiest lawn you can, you want to likely begin fertilizing in the spring. Some treatments last for 3 or 4 applications, while others include an 8-12 week program of grass and soil treatment. This is a standard practice for a lot of lawn care companies and they have plenty of experience and reasons for treating different types of grass and soil to different treatment plans depending. Some grass, like fescue for instance, needs to be treated March through May and September through October. Bermuda, on the other hand, requires a treatment plan that runs from April through the month of August. Regardless of the type of grass or the type of soil that you have, one thing is for certain and that is that it is very important to begin treating your grass in the spring. This is when the plants start to come alive again after the winter and, therefore, it’s extremely important to catch them at the time their growth cycle is beginning again and give them the best leg up for propagative success. This is why, we at Legacy Landscape, in particular, always recommend to our clients that they start treating their grass with us in the middle of April at the absolute latest. However, if your grass is struggling to really grow as healthily as you’d like, it’s never too late to start! Whether your grass is not thick enough, or you have too many weeds interspersed in the kind of grass you want, as long as it’s growing season (March-September usually), there’s always something that can be done to maximize the potential aesthetic and biological quality of your grass. If you are looking to receive a free quote, there are many companies that do flat rates in respect to how much surface area your grass covers. Here at Legacy Landscape, you can get a free quote for fertilizing and otherwise chemically treating your plants.

What kinds of chemicals do Lawn Care companies use to treat your lawn?
That’s a great question, mostly because it’s something not a lot of companies will be upfront about. Some lawn care companies use pesticides like those on crops, while others use chemicals that specifically target wild species or weeds rather than the grass one assumes is likely the intended protected plant type. Therefore, the chemicals that companies use will range from pesticides to weed deterrent plants, which eventually lead to having a beautiful and luscious lawn with a uniform arrangement of grass blades that will look very pleasing to the eye and cut down on the insects / bugs, and wildlife that might otherwise find your lawn to be a nice spring / summer home!

What do most landscapers charge per hour?
If you’re looking to figure out how much your lawn care professional is going to charge per hour, this is a good start. Most lawn care companies will charge anywhere from around $50 to $100 an hour for labor. This will depend likely on the amount of demand the company is currently experiencing for their services.
