Glenn is our modest owner who allows the team to use their skills to provide our community with a great lawn care experience.
How often do you mow the grass?
We offer weekly or bi-weekly mowing services we also offer 1-time mowing services.
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.

Do We Have Reviews?

Beth C. | Homeowner in Wilmington, NC
My yard was a mess before hiring Fishwater. I probably had more weeds than grass! They explained it would take several treatments to gain control of the weeds and once the weeds were gone, I should plant new grass seed so the weeds can’t come right back. I listened and had them perform their proposed plan of attack, and it worked! I can’t believe this is really my lawn now!
Sarah T. | Homeowner is Wrightsville Beach, NC
I am not sure what the winter months
Mark R. | Wilmington, NC
I own a business on S College Rd. Appearance is really everything when it comes to our storefront and the lawn and landscape are a very important part of that. It’s the first thing our customers or potential customers see. Fishwater keeps it looking great all year long and I sincerely appreciate it. The best part is I am saving roughly $1k per year for all of our lawn and landscape needs from what the prior contractor was charging.
William K. | Business Owner in Wilmington, NC
We had Fishwater come out and trim our shrubs, pull our weeds, and install new mulch. We could not be happier with the results!
Jim and Michelle | Wrightsville Beach, N
We had something really weird going on with our lawn. There were patches that looked like something was spilled on them or something. I really didn’t know who to call. A friend mentioned Fishwater and the rest is history! It turned out to be a turf disease (didn’t know there was such a thing…) but their treatments cleared it up in a matter of weeks. Back to normal!
Chris P. | Wilmington, NC
My moles are gone! I don’t know where they came from or what Fishwater did to get rid of them. I don’t care…just glad I don’t have that pest destroying my lawn anymore. Thanks guys.
Mary T. | Wilmington, NC
I have never had a nicer lawn. I’ve had Fishwater mow and treat my lawn for 3 seasons in a row and I cannot believe what a professionally maintained lawn really looks like. AMAZING!
