How often do you mow the grass?

What if it rains?

If your yard is wet because of a recent rain then our professional lawn maintenance supervisor will make the decision base on risk and reward to determine whether to mow on your scheduled day.

For example, if your grass has not grown much and it’s not very damp then they will let it go for a couple of days or get you on the next scheduled visit.

If your grass is very long and really needs cutting but it’s very damp and our professional supervisors are 90% sure we will damage the lawn if we mow then we will keep an eye on it every day until he feels like it is safe to mow. He will take care of it as soon as it is possible without damaging your yard. 

What if my grass doesn't need mowing?

If your yard has not grown enough to be cut on any given week, we will simply be back next week when it is ready.

What do you do over the winter months?

Our visits consist of making your yard look great.  We mow and/or blow on each visit.

Your monthly installment investment takes into consideration we are mowing some weeks and compensating with other tasks during the offseason. The monthly installment is a reflection of spending more time in the summer months and less time in the winter month. The monthly cost is averaged out so the investment is the same for all 12 months. 

What other services do you provide?

We can do just about any outside project. Our guys are more available for projects when the grass slows down. So, September – March are good months for us to help you with any projects that are not time sensitive.
