• Should Lawn Care Companies Have Certifications in Oakville?

    April 7, 2016 | Blog | root
  • According to the National Gardening Association it's estimated that about 30% of home owners use a lawn care service. That's a lot. And here is the unsavory reality where grass cutting companies are concerned: a business in grass cutting requires no more then simply having a lawnmower and a business license. In Canada there is no required training or courses. For most grass cutting employees their formal training is their own lawn. They won't get to use advanced equipment right away. Probably get stuck with a lawnmower or a weed whacker. And for all intents and purposes they will probably do okay however there is a chance where little or no experience can lead to serious injury. The reality is that this could be the case with experienced grass cutters.

    Clear Cut Group suggests that if homeowners pressured local and provincial government for certifications for lawncare it could only have a positive outcome. Lawncare sometimes requires the application of fertilizer. This is a great example of practicality. People should have some degree of training when applying this - a basic certification at a minimum. Improper fertilization can be a bad thing. Understanding how lawn machinery works is a valid safety concern. While we can appreciate this isn't going to change everything in the grass business in Ontario Canada it is a step in the right direction. With some type of certification it will establish some degree of confidence. His or her confidence will be a benefit for the home owner and the grass cutting companies. It will be easier to take on new employees if they have certain certifications in this industry.

    Homeowners need to take step back and think about this for second. If you're going to hire a grass cutting company in Oakville wouldn't it give you peace of mind knowing the people cutting your grass are certified in some way? We think so and we support the idea.
