Look, we get it: finding a reliable lawn care company can be difficult. Moreover, before we opened our doors, we knew there was a serious demand in the area for professional lawn and landscape services.

After all, almost anyone with a mower can claim to be a “lawn care company”. Sure, maybe the Internet has made it easier to look up and explore local companies, but it can still prove challenging to wade through all the swaths of information to find the most trustworthy one.

To make matters worse, many companies out there that may seem reputable—thanks to their large presence on Google—but cannot live up to their online persona. Thanks for that, Internet!

Fortunately, we at Cherry Oak Landscaping are here to help. Unlike many competitors, we’re upfront about our services. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of 7 reasons why we’re the best at lawn care in the area.

  1. Solid Reputation
  2. When looking for a service provider, it’s a great idea to start by considering the 3 Rs: reviews, recommendations, and references. Check the company’s Google Reviews. See what other customers have said. Is the company reliable? Professional? How’s their customer service?

    At Cherry Oak Landscaping, we possess a rock-solid reputation, replete with praise, high ratings, and great online recommendations. Now that’s how you know you’ve got a good company on your hands.

    Of course, you can’t trust everything you find on the net. That’s why we also provide strong references who can vouch for the quality of our work.

    If our online reviews and recommendations do not fully convince you, we encourage you to ask us for our references. Many other lawn care companies might be reluctant to provide them, but we’ll be more than happy to do so. That way, you can rest assured that we’re the real deal.

  3. Licensed and Insured
  4. We’re proud to be a fully licensed and insured company. That might not seem like much, but there is a surprising number of companies out there that perform their work without the necessary certification.

    Don’t just assume that any old business is licensed and insured. It’s a serious liability issue. What if something were to happen? Without proper licensing and insurance, that company might just put you and your property at risk.

    Seriously, trust us. You don’t want to take any chances by hiring someone who’s not certified. When it matters, it really matters. Instead, go with the simple option: Cherry Oak Landscaping!

  5. (No) Contracts!
  6. There are many lawn care companies who—even if they’re licensed and insured—might not play fair. In fact, many out there will sign their customers onto a one- or two-year contract, only to provide a subpar service at an extortionate rate.

    We don’t use such dishonest practices to keep our clients. Instead, we rely on excellent old-fashioned workmanship to make sure our clients are satisfied and stay with us.

    We offer a range of month-to-month service plans for our customers. No contracts, no swindling.

  7. A Full-Service Lawn Care Company
  8. Many companies might only do lawn mowing. Some might also dabble in lawn fertilization and soil care. Very few can do it all.

    We’re proud to be one of those privileged few. At Cherry Oak Landscaping, we do it all—from mowing and tree pruning to landscape design and soil repair.

    That might not seem very important if all you want right now is a regular lawn mowing service. However, the fact of the matter is that you never know when you may need something more comprehensive. If, for example, your lawn starts to develop weeds, pest infestations, or root rot, then you may quickly find yourself thankful that you hired the full-service landscaper that can tackle those problems.

    Ultimately, it’s best to go with the folks who know their way around any and every lawn care-related problem: Cherry Oak Landscaping.

  9. Responsive and Communicative
  10. You want a company that will answer your questions and resolve your issues quickly. It helps if they’re also easy to talk to—approachable, receptive, and friendly.

    We pride ourselves on our expert communication skills. We respond to all communications promptly so that you know we’ll tackle any unforeseen challenges with gusto.

    But hey, don’t take our word for it. Just check out our Google reviews and see what others have said about our excellent customer service!

  11. Strict Maintenance for Lawn Equipment
  12. As the adage goes: a warrior is only as good as his blade.

    Well, OK, maybe that’s not the saying, but it does resonate with us. Why? Because a lawn care company is only as good as their equipment. If they’re using worn-out or poorly maintained equipment, you’ll see that fact reflected in the appearance of your lawn, which may turn brown or start to look frayed.

    At Cherry Oak Landscaping, we make sure that our blades are regularly sharpened to maintain a consistent edge. Generally, the rule of thumb is to sharpen them for every 10 hours of mowing.

  13. Affordable Prices!
  14. It would be best if you had a contractor you can afford. Sure, sometimes it’s worth paying a little extra to get superior service. But in other cases, you may find that the landscaper charging the most is not necessarily the best. Don’t get swindled!

    We’re confident that our services have found that perfect sweet spot between price and value. Our services are incredibly affordable, as we strive to keep a low overhead to minimize our expenses. Consequently, we can keep offering our superior service at an unbeatable rate.

    What’s more, we always stick to a budget. Some companies might advertise a ridiculously low price only to tack on a slew of hidden fees and additional charges. With us, what you see is what you get.
