A turf program can be defined as creative, client responsive, results oriented, or even thoughtful. This kind of lawn program would be highly desired and sought after for lots of reasons including the ones already mentioned. A turf program could be dated, budget driven, restrictive, or even canned. Your lawn care program could include some of these attributes good and bad. What do you get out of your lawn service? Are you generally pleased and feel your lawn requires no further attention? Perhaps the prospect of seeking additional advice seems just too much of a bother? After all, if it is not broken- why fix it? There is no right or wrong answer to these questions, just the realization, and the possibility that doing things the same, year after year- produces equal or less results over time. This may not necessarily be a bad thing. Maybe greater results could be visualized in your own lawn with a fresh look this season? Would an expert analysis be worth the time? What do you think?
Alternative lawn treatments exist and should be explained as to why they work and how they work for both you and the environment. If you are served the same TV dinner lawn program each season (fert/grub/lime) without any additional input, perhaps there is more to be said- or maybe less? Does your lawn care company work in your town nearly every day or does it launch special visitations because the drive is so long? Which company can provide better customer service, the one that has a 1.5hr drive one way, or the other which can be at your front door in 10 minutes? These are good questions.
Chipper’s belongs to the Local First Alliance of the Upper Valley and is a proud charter member serving our surrounding communities and giving to those in need generously. In the same respect, we encourage our neighbors and communities to support each other, to support businesses whose employees live and work in our towns. We are proud to service wonderful towns like Hanover, Etna, Lyme, New London, Grantham, Woodstock, Sunapee, Lebanon, and so many more. If you choose to use an outside vendor from faraway places such as Rutland or Manchester to service your lawn for instance, this does not support our immediate local economy. If supporting your local community is as important to you as it is to chippers, consider a second opinion on your lawn this year and discover how both realms are possible- a great looking lawn and knowing you make a difference by supporting those who live in and around your town!
