5 Common Questions About Lawn Care Prices in Cincinnati

7 min read

If you’re going to be investing in professional lawn care services, you probably want to understand what you’re paying for. As a wise consumer, you want to feel confident that you’re making the best financial decisions for your lawn.

We understand that lawn care prices in Cincinnati can run the gamut, and you might be confused as to why different companies are charging different amounts for what you perceive to be the same services.

The truth is, there are quite a few differences from one company to the next, which has a substantial impact on the cost of lawn care in Cincinnati.

In this article, we’ll help answer some of the most common questions about lawn care costs in Cincinnati so that you can have a better understanding of your investment.

How Much Do Lawn Services Cost?

When it comes to better understanding the cost of lawn care, there are 5 questions that we are frequently asked. These include:

1. What is the average cost of lawn care services in Cincinnati?
2. What affects the price of lawn care?
3. Why can’t I just choose the cheapest option?
4. How will my quote be determined?
5. What's included in my price?

We will answer all of these questions for you. By the end of this article, you’ll have a clear understanding of lawn care costs in Cincinnati.

1. What is the average cost of lawn care services in Cincinnati?

Every company is different but the average lawn care costs in Cincinnati is typically somewhere between $396 and $582 per year.

It’s important to understand that the price you pay is based on the size of your lawn. The average lawn in Cincinnati is 12,000 square feet. However, your price might be lower if your lawn is smaller (and higher if your lawn is larger).

The cost of lawn care in Cincinnati also varies by company, which we’ll cover next.

2. What affects the price of my lawn care?

We have written an entire article explaining what affects the cost of lawn care in Cincinnati. You can read that article in its entirety, here.

The biggest takeaway in that article is the fact that no two lawn care companies are created equally. There is a big misconception that all lawn care companies are the same, except their prices. But that’s not the case at all.

There are actually many factors that affect lawn care prices in Cincinnati (or anywhere else for that matter). Here’s a quick summary of the factors that impact price.

  • The products used: When lawn care companies invest in higher-quality products (like fertilizer and weed control), you might have to pay a little more…but it directly correlates with better results. For example, many of our competitors charge less but also use synthetic fertilizers. Our lawn care program uses bio-nutritional materials and organic-based fertilizers that improves and builds good soil biology.

  • How products are applied: It’s not just the products used, but also how they are applied that can impact lawn care costs. Oasis Turf & Tree is committed to always using best practices, even when it takes a little bit longer. Our technicians are highly trained and take their time (as opposed to cutting corners, as many lawn care companies are known to do). But this extra labor can mean a little more expense.

  • Who is performing your services: As we mentioned above, the skill of the technician is a significant factor in your results. A low-priced service might mean that technicians are not getting paid well, which could lead them to cut corners. But paying for high-quality service means better results. 

  • Who supports you: When you call your lawn care company, does anyone answer the phone? Support staff also impacts the cost of lawn care in Cincinnati. But we find that people are more than willing to pay a little more if it means they can always count on good customer service.

3. Why can’t I just choose the cheapest option?

Hopefully, after reading about what affects the cost of lawn care in Cincinnati, you understand why you can’t just choose the cheapest option. If you shop on price alone, you run the risk of getting cheaper products, poor service, and minimal support. That can add up to subpar results and a lot of frustration.

Sometimes, people also want to know if we can lower our prices to match a competitor’s quote. But as you can see from the factors we’ve explained above, there’s a reason why we charge what we do.

The truth is, there is a certain level of quality that we strive for and we’re not willing to compromise on that for the sake of a lower price. We’re simply not like the companies that charge less but ultimately offer you lesser quality.

On this same note, if you’re getting a much less expensive price, you may need to ask yourself why. A lot of lawn care companies participate in lawn care sales gimmicks, including the “bait and switch” game. This is when a lawn care company ropes in new customers with free services. They give these to you free for the first year but automatically charge for them in future years.

Many companies offer promotions and other seemingly less expensive prices to get you in the door but then they nickel and dime you once you’re a customer. It doesn’t take long to realize that the seemingly cheap lawn care package you were sold on doesn’t include everything your lawn needs. Now that you’re adding those other services in, your lawn care cost may be more expensive than the other company you were considering (which offered all of those services from the start).

4. How will my quote be determined?

Another question that we receive regarding lawn care prices in Cincinnati is how your individual price will be determined.

While some companies might still use an outdated method of “block pricing” and just take an average lawn size in your area and use that price, at Oasis Turf & Tree, we are using the latest technology to determine the square footage of your property (which will then determine your quote).

We achieve this using aerial technology, which is the most accurate method. Someone going out with a measuring wheel is also an outdated method and opens things up to human error.

Once we capture your precise square footage, we will provide your customized price.

5. What is included in my price?

As you compare lawn care prices in Cincinnati it’s important to also be clear on what’s included. Sometimes a company’s price will seem cheaper but it’s because it’s missing important services that you’ll need to add on later.

In fact, some companies even offer a la carte pricing. We feel this puts you, the consumer, in charge of understanding what your lawn needs to perform its best.

Instead of having all of the services you require in a lawn care package, you have to pick and choose. But you’re not an agronomist and you’ve likely turned to a lawn care professional because you don’t know everything that your lawn needs.

Lawn care companies who offer all of their services individually (as opposed to packaged) also often end up playing the “blame game.” If your lawn isn’t performing well, the lawn care company can put the blame on you saying that you didn’t choose all the services that you needed.

The truth is, you don’t just hire a lawn care company to treat your weeds or fertilize your lawn—you hire them to take away your worries.

That means finding a lawn care company that offers complete lawn care programs with everything you need.

At Oasis Turf & Tree, our lawn care programs include everything that your lawn needs.
