FAQ’s

 

Do you bag lawn clippings?

We use highly efficient commercial mulching mowers, so there is no need for us to bag the clippings the majority of the time. Our mowers are properly sized for your lawn, and do not leave clumps behind. Mulching instead of bagging recycles the nutrients back into your turf, which means you have a healthier lawn without using as many chemicals. Mulching also eliminates the waste created from lawn clippings and lawn bags from going into our landfills. However, to keep your lawn looking its best during heavy growth periods, or if your lawn is covered with excessive leaves during the fall months, we may need to bag the clippings. We will do what it takes to make your lawn look great, because we take pride in the quality of our work. Please check out our pictures page to see some of the beautiful lawns we maintain.

Can you provide one-time only lawn mowing?

Unfortunately, we can’t provide one time services. We have large number of properties we service each week, and this requires us to keep to a strict daily schedule. Due to this, we require a minimum of four consecutive mowing visits to begin service. We do not require you to sign a yearly contract though, so signing up for four service visits is a great option if you are only looking for short term lawn service.

When will you mow my lawn?

The actual weekday we will service your property is dependent on our route, and which neighborhoods we are mowing in on certain days. Your lawn will be mowed on the same day each week, however the time of service may vary. You do not need to be home for us to service your property. We avoid mowing on holidays and weekends if at all possible, but sometimes it is unavoidable.

Do you mow even when it rains?

We do mow in light rain, as we try to keep on schedule as much as possible. You will not see our crew however if the lawn is too wet to service without damaging the turf. If you have one section of lawn that drains poorly, we may service everything else and just skip that portion of the lawn. We make every attempt to service as soon as possible after weather delays, and get you back on your weekly schedule.

How often should I water my lawn?

We recommend watering twice a week in the spring time, increasing the frequency to 3-4 times per week during summer, then back to twice weekly in the fall. Obviously decrease watering if we have significant rainfall, and increase if there is a drought period. Watering during the early morning is best, and 20-30 minutes per zone is usually sufficient. Please do not water your lawn at least 24hrs before your weekly service visit.

Should I bring my animal inside on mowing days?

We must ask that you please keep all animals and children inside when we are servicing your property. The mowers and string trimmers can discharge objects at very high speeds, and we do not want your animals or children to get hurt. We also ask that you keep dog and kids toys cleared from mowing areas. We will make every attempt to pick up what we can see, but we can not be responsible for damage to objects left in the lawn.

How can I lower my mowing costs?

There are a couple of different ways you can save even more money on our services. Refer a friend or neighbor to us, and if they sign up to use our services, you will receive one free lawn mowing. Sign up two neighbors and get a free month of service! Another option is to pre-pay for the entire year of mowing up front (based on 36 service visits). We will discount your total by 10% if you prepay with cash or check.
