Lawn Care in Hawaii

Do You Need Professional Lawn Care in HI?

Cable home improvement shows are certainly popular in Hawaii, especially among DIY homeowners that want to improve the look of their lawns. Though they can be helpful in supplying people with creative ideas and an idea of what it takes to get the job done, they can also be misleading.

The work is still being done by professionals or under the supervision of professionals. Before you consider starting a lawn care or yard project all on your own consider the following factors:

  • Equipment needed
  • Time involved  
  • Expertise required

If you are limited in any of these three areas it is usually best to hire a lawn care professional. If you need to purchase equipment or take time away from your friends and family it’s usually worth it to give the responsibility to somebody that can get the job done for you.

What Type of Lawn Care Do You Need?

Basic Lawn Care – If you only need upkeep for your yard then most likely you can get by with just basic lawn care. Basic lawn care generally includes mowing, watering and weeding to keep your yard looking clean and well kept.

Gardener – If you're interested in planting flowers, vegetables, trees or any other plants you should consider enlisting the help of a gardener. Gardeners specialize in bringing plants into your yard and making them flourish. Gardeners provide much more than basic lawn care and should have a firm knowledge of native plants that will thrive in Hawaii.

Landscaper – If you're wanting to complete more complex projects, like changing the layout of the outdoor space or adding construction elements such as rock walls or a pond then a landscaper will likely be the best professional to hire.  Landscapers are skilled in redesigning the look and feel of a yard and bringing the creativity and management required to get a major project done on time and within budget.

Organic Lawn Care in Hawaii

Recently numerous organic lawn care services have cropped up in Hawaii. Today, we are more aware of the surplus amount of chemicals and toxins that are released into our environment including your very own yard. Over time we have realized that it isn’t the healthiest option for our lawn, pets or our family.  

Organic lawn care services in Hawaii are exactly like traditional lawn care with the exception that they use techniques and products that are clear of harmful chemicals. If you are interested in organic lawn care take note of every product used in your yard to verify that it is certified as organic. This is particularly important if you have a garden or flower beds that produce veggies and fruits that will be brought into your home.
