Understanding Maine's Climate

Maine is in the Cold climate zone, enjoying moderate summers but fairly cold winters. Temperatures in the area range from an average high of 57 degrees Fahrenheit to an average low of roughly 41 degrees Fahrenheit. The area gets roughly 36 inches of rain a year, with May being the wettest month and February the driest.

Your local climate greatly affects lawn health. Your grass might appear greener and more lush in wetter months, but excessive rain can deplete soil nutrients. Drier months will require increased watering to keep your lawn from drying out and browning. The local climate will have a big influence on when you fertilize, seed, and aerate your lawn.

What To Consider Before Choosing a Lawn Care Company

Consider these key factors when determining the best lawn care service and treatment schedule for you.

Services Offered

A full-service lawn care professional will provide a variety of services to help keep your lawn healthy through all seasons. These services typically include the following:

  • Core aeration
  • Fertilization
  • Overseeding
  • Pest control
  • Soil amendment and pH control
  • Killing weeds

Some lawn care companies specialize in only a few lawn care treatments. Discuss your lawn's needs with a provider before making a decision.

Reputation and Experience

One of the first things you should do when researching lawn care service providers is read real customer reviews. Good places to learn about a company's years of experience and reputation include Yelp, Google Reviews, the Better Business Bureau, and Trustpilot. Remember that newer companies might be harder to evaluate due to having fewer reviews.

Environmental Practices

A company's environmental practices may also be important to you. Some service providers use strong chemical pesticides and herbicides that can have negative environmental consequences and be hazardous for people and pets. Others pride themselves on using organic and natural lawn care products. These can be environmentally friendly when used according to the instructions.

Pricing

The price of Maine lawn care will depend on the plan you choose. If you only want or need a one-time service, a single visit may cost less. However, this won't include any follow-up care. If you need a hands-off, year-round option, an annual plan will cost more but include regular visits and lawn maintenance.

Potential DIY Solutions

Homeowners who prefer DIY lawn care can get the necessary supplies and equipment at local retailers. Lawn and garden centers sell fertilizer and grass seed, and heavy-equipment rental shops frequently have walk-behind aerators that can be rented by the day.

DIY lawn care is a significant time commitment, however, and you won't get the specialized knowledge a professional lawn service can provide. Full-service lawn care companies can evaluate the health of your lawn and soil and prescribe the right treatment to make sure your yard reaches its full potential. Some companies offer DIY subscription plans depending on your lawn care needs, in which the company provides customized lawn care products that customers are responsible for applying to their lawns.

Lawn Care Service Costs in Maine

On average, you can expect to pay around $74–$167 on full-service lawn care prices in Maine. However, you may pay less if you only need one service, such as lawn mowing.

Here's the average cost of different lawn care services:

Lawn Care ServiceAverage Cost
Lawn mowing$111 -$167
Leaf removal$69 -$463
Snow removal$69 -$139
Core aeration$79 -$116
Fertilization$46 -$139
Overseeding$648 -$926
Pest control$93 -$1,204
Weed control$79 -$93
