There’s a Subscription For That is a new series spotlighting subscriptions the team at My Subscription Addiction finds interesting and is excited to share with readers.
No one wants to step onto their front porch and be greeted by a dry, sickly, yellowing lawn — especially not if the neighbor's lawns are annoyingly lush and verdant. Situation sound familiar to you? Luckily, there's a subscription for that.
Lawn Serv is a DIY lawn care subscription box that's totally customized to you and your lawn. Depending on your specific soil makeup, Lawn Serv will decide what products are needed to address your lawn woes. Lawn Serv also keeps your specific location and climate in mind — people in Florida, for example, will require vastly different lawn care than people in Minnesota.
Your first month with Lawn Serv starts with some scientific experiments. The company sends you a soil test kit, easily completed with a few scoops of dirt from your yard. Some of the nation's leading soil testing labs will then analyze your lawn nutrients and create a custom plan tailored to your specific soil needs. A product specific to the season will be included to condition your soil and/or control weeds to get a quick start.
In the next months, you'll begin receiving boxes that include custom pro grade fertilizer, as well products for weed control, bug control, and pH control. You can also choose between a Traditional ($29/month), Mostly Natural ($39/month), or All Natural ($39/month) plan. The Traditional plan includes mostly synthetic with some natural products, the Mostly Natural plan includes mostly natural with some synthetic products, and All Natural plan is exactly what it sounds like — it includes only natural products. The latter two are gentler on your lawn and are recommended for those who have kids or pets.
The Lawn Serv website also offers how-to videos that walk you through to the lawn management process, as well as a lawn sizing tool that uses satellite imagery to help identify the right amount of product you should use. Take heart: in just a few months, your lawn will be looking just as good (if not better) than your neighbor's.
