You have three main options, in terms of ways through which you can get lawn care done.
In the first instance, you can decide to do the lawn care yourself. This is a very viable possibility where it is a domestic lawn we are looking at, as most domestic lawns tend to be of a relatively modest size. You need three things, when you decide to go this lawn care route. You need the lawn care equipment and materials. Then you need the lawn care know-how (because, contrary to what many of us imagine, effective lawn care requires a considerable amount of technical know-how). Finally, you will need the time and energy to undertake the lawn care.
Some of the equipment required can be hired, whilst buying the rest. Most of the materials needed (the likes of grass seeds, fertilizers, insecticides and so on) are things you will just have to buy, as they are ‘consumables’ that can’t be hired. It is typically your leisure time that you will need to put. The knowledge required for the project can be acquired through a visit to the library, purchasing a book or online research (as the internet has tons of relevant lawn care information).
In the second instance, you can decide to (directly) employ someone to do the care of lawn for you. This is a viable option whether it is a modest domestic lawn we are looking at, or whether it is a huge organizational lawn we are looking at. In the case of bigger organizational lawns, you may find that a single person is unable to manage the lawn effectively, necessitating the employment of several people for the task, and effectively creating a ‘care of lawn department.’ There are organizations that decide to task care of lawn to the housekeeping departments, so that the people in those departments care for the lawns as part of their brief.
On the other hand, in the domestic setting, the sizes of the lawns may be so small that it would be unsustainable to employ a full-time worker to be maintaining them. In such cases, it would make sense to hire a part-timer to maintain the lawn, or pay the domestic staff ‘something extra’ to maintain the lawns. The tricky thing with either situations is that whilst most of the people you find may have the time and energy to undertake the care of lawn, they will tend to be lacking in technical skills, making it necessary to have to show them how to do things -so that you end up spending time on the care of lawn, in spite of paying people for it.
Your third option, in terms of getting your care of lawn done, would be to contract the whole project to a care of lawn company. There are many such companies, which offer care of lawn services as a package – where you just show them where you want the lawn established, pay them, give them an idea on what type of a lawn you want, and leave it upon them to ‘make it happen.’ Whilst their services are increasingly costly, the most beautiful thing about these firms is that they take the whole burden off your shoulders, and they really have the capacity to deliver results.
