5 Signs It’s Time To Switch Lawn Care Companies & How To Do It 

Breaking up is awkward, makes your stomach feel funny, and means you have to delete a number from your phone, but sometimes it has to be done.

When your lawn service company does you wrong, it’s time to break up.

They don’t deserve you. You can do better. Your friends never liked them.

OK, maybe you need more solid reasons to cancel your lawn service. Here you go.

Why Should You Cancel Your Lawn Service?

1. You Don’t See Improvement

You hired them to get rid of weeds, make your lawn healthier and greener.

Remember, it takes time to get a lawn in shape, so you need to be patient. You can’t cut a lawn service company loose after just a couple weeks.

But if they’ve been treating your lawn for months and you don’t see any improvement, it’s time to switch.

2. They Don’t Return Your Calls

This drives you crazy, right? You should be able to get your lawn care company on the phone when you need them. Or they should at least call you back soon.

3. They Don’t Show Up

Hard to believe, right? But this actually happens. Enough said. If they don't show up, it's time to cancel your lawn care service.

4. Their Employees Make You Nervous

Maybe they don’t look or act professional. Maybe they leave messy clippings laying around after they leave. Maybe they never smile. If you have an uneasy feeling when they show up, it’s time to let go.

5. You Never Know if They Actually Showed Up

This is frustrating. Maybe your lawn care company showed up to fertilize or treat weeds. Maybe they didn’t. How are you supposed to know?

So, it’s time to switch companies. How do you cancel a lawn care service?

First, Give Them a Chance to Make Things Right

Before you cancel your lawn service, give them a chance to make things right. You’d want a second chance, wouldn’t you?

Maybe there’s a good reason behind the inconsistent service.

Get to the root of the problem and give your lawn service company a chance to explain and redeem themselves.lawn care professional fertilizes grass

Time to Cancel Your Lawn Care Service? Get Confirmation

Once you’ve decided the relationship is doomed, it’s tempting to cut things off and move on.

But don’t officially switch to another lawn care service before you cancel your current service — and have proof of the cancellation.

Get it in writing so there’s no confusion. You don’t want your new lawn service company showing up and your old lawn care company showing up. That means two invoices. Yikes, nope.

This isn’t a time to be wishy washy. Stand firm. They might offer you a discount or other perks to keep you on board. But if you’ve already given them a chance to redeem themselves, and they didn’t, it’s too late for sweet talk.

Choosing a New Lawn Care Service

Yay, a new relationship!

Hopefully, your new lawn care company won’t let you down. Before you sign a new contract, take some precautions.

The first thing they should ask you: why were you dissatisfied with your last lawn care service?

If they don’t ask about your concerns, how will you know they’ll fix them?

What else should you look for?

  • They offer easy choices.
  • They show up when they say they will.
  • They deliver quality services that make your lawn thrive and look great.
  • They make it easy to pay.
  • They tell you what they just did and anything you need to do to follow up.

Check their customer reviews and testimonials. Do other customers like them?
