If you’re contemplating the great philosophical question, “Should I cut my lawn or hire a landscaping service?”, we have a few thoughts to share with you.

First things first – the internet is full of smart and sassy responses.  Depending on the website your search takes you to, you’ll probably see businesses like lawn mower companies touting the benefits of getting out there and doing it yourself.

Great exercise!

Save money!

Feel like a tough guy, pushing that thing around!

Yup.  We’ve seen ‘em all.  We’ve even seen a rather complex break down of the costs involved in mowing your own lawn vs. hiring a landscaping service.  The author of the piece described runs a penny-pinching blog, dedicated to helping people manage their finances.

But we’re kind of wondering where this guy finds time to mow his lawn.  Rolling pennies eats up a lot of time!  So does creating complex rationalizations for mowing your own lawn.

Our take.

Sure.  We’re a little biased.  We’re a landscaping service.  But at CI Landscape, we take lawns, gardens and outdoor lighting (among other things) very seriously.  Because you’re reading this, we’re sure you’re dead serious about your personal great outdoors, too.

You can tell us you need the exercise.  You can tell us you’re trying to save money.  You can even tell us you’re the toughest guy on the block.  But there are some things you may not have thought about, if these factors are dominating your current position on the matter.

The time it takes to pull out the mower, mow the lawn, maintain and clean the mower, never mind edging and trimming, might be better spent at the gym, going for a bike ride, or taking a brisk walk, if it’s exercise you’re after.

Money?  Maybe other landscaping services don’t provide an affordable alternative to DYI, but CI Landscape’s tailored seasonal maintenance agreements most certainly do.  When you think about all our customer and wallet-friendly agreements offer, it’s a no brainer.

As for being the toughest guy on the block, don’t tough guys like to spend time with their families?  The weekend comes but once a week.  Wouldn’t you rather spend some quality time with the people you love, rather than sweating it out, shoving that monster across your lawn?

C’mon, tough guy.

We’re way tougher than you.

Yeah.  We said it.  We’re the tough guys with the right equipment.  We also maintain and clean the equipment, so you can go to the gym, go over the household books with a fine-toothed comb, or take the family somewhere fun, instead of grooming your lawn.

Maybe you can even roll some pennies with the time you’ll save.  As for saving money, we’re a reasonably-priced alternative that gets your lawn cut right.

Let us push that mower.

If you’re still not convinced you should hire a landscaping service, we invite you to contact us to discuss a tailored seasonal maintenance agreement.  You may find out that with CI, the pennies look after themselves!
