1. What is included in the regular lawn mowing service
We offer every week and every two weeks lawn mowing service. Our lawn mowing services include mowing the front and back lawn. Line trimming around the house and the obstacles on the lawn with a string trimmer, sidewalk and driveway edging and blowing off the front porch, back porch, and front driveway and the sidewalk.
Note: The shortest height we mow any lawn no matter the frequency is 2.5 inches
2. Here is what is not included in the regular lawn mowing service
Hedge trimming, flower bed weed pulling, leaf removal service and adding mulch in flower beds. Those are additional services that can be bought at our hourly rate of $250 per hour for a 2 man crew with a 1 hour minimum plus the price of the mulch if you wanted to add mulch to the flower beds and any leaf mulching is accidental.
Lawn Bagging is $20 per brown recyclable bag left by the curb for the city to dispose off. And this service is only available for every week lawn mowing.
Also we don’t use a line trimmer to weed eat the grass growing around the driveway seams or the cracks in the sidewalk or road. Due to rocks flying up and hitting or breaking something which causes a liability issue.
3. Long grass fee
Overgrown lawns 5 inches or taller for bermuda and zoysia grass and for any other lawn type including weeds anything 7 inches or taller will be billed at and hourly rate of $180 per hour with a one hour minimum then by the minute. At least 50% off the lawn has to be overgrown in order for it to be charged at an hourly rate.
And we Also don’t bag the grass clippings and we don’t haul them off with us but if you wanted that service added if the grass is really tall. We would just charge while we are there mowing off our hourly rate to bag the grass and to put it on our trailer we also charge 4 dollars per each bag we use note we have to provide the bags for the debris you can’t provide your own and a fee of $350 dollar per trip to the landfill. We usually can fit everything in one trip but in case we had to come back and load what didn’t fit in the first trip. We would have to charge $180 for a 1 hour minimum for loading the stuff on to the trailer then by the minute after the one hour minimum. Plus another $350 dollar per trip fee to the landfill since the landfill charges a fee and we charge a fee to drive over there and dispose off the grass clippings.
When we mow an overgrown lawn we will try to make it look it’s best sometimes. It will take a few lawn mowing’s in order for the lawn to look better specially if it is really overgrown.
This also applies to clients that skip their lawn service if the crew shows up to mow your property after you have skipped a lawn mowing and the grass is 5 inches or taller for Bermuda and Zoysia grass. And for any other lawn type including weeds if it is 7 inches or taller we will charge our hourly rate for the lawn overgrowth since it takes more time to mow it.
4. How to skip a lawn mowing service and same day cancellation and what happens if you do
We do need a 48 hour business day notice to skip a service for example if your lawn mowing day is thursday we need to be notified by 5pm on tuesday at the latest. But if your lawn mowing day is monday or tuesday we need to be notified the friday before your service week by 5pm at the latest since we don’t have anyone working on the weekends to make the change. And cancellations before the 48 hour notice or same day cancellation will result in a $15 dollar cancellation fee due to us saving you a spot on our schedule.
And you get one free skip every 6 months for a total of two free skips per year the skips cannot be rolled over to the next 6 months or the next year if the skips are not used. Once the free skips are gone we will have to charge a $15 dollar save a spot fee in order to save you a spot on our schedule. It’s just that once our route is booked up on a crew we don’t take on new clients so we have to turn down new clients in order to save you a spot on our schedule. This is due to the limited availability on our crew’s schedule and the high demand we have for new service.
We will also have to charge a long grass fee if you skip a service and we show up to mow your lawn and the lawn is overgrown.
5. How and when will i be billed
We will charge your credit or debit card on file we charge the card after your lawn has been mowed on your scheduled lawn mowing day or the day after your lawn has been mowed. Depending on what times the crew finishes their route and a receipt will automatically be sent to the email we have on file.
6. Our additional services are listed here with their hourly rate
Also we only offer our additional services to our recurring lawn mowing clients. And these services are not part of the regular lawn mowing service. Our additional services are hedge trimming flower bed weed pulling, leaf removal and spreading mulch in flower beds and for the mulch we have to provide it for you clients can’t provide their own mulch. These services start off at $250 per hour for a two man crew with a 1 hour minimum and prorated by the minute at 4.17 dollars per minute for a two man crew after the 1 hour minimum.
The hourly rate does not include the mulch for the flower bed or the haul off fee and driving fee for disposing off the landscape debris at the landfill. That would be an additional fee on top of the hourly rate but we do dispose off those things in brown recyclable bags and we charge 4 dollars per each bag we use and we do leave them by the street for the city to dispose off. We would just charge off the time it took the crew to bag and put them by the street curb for the city to dispose off.
If you did want us to haul those things off to the landfill it would be an additional 350 per trip to the landfill. We usually can fit everything in one trip but in case we had to come back and load what didn’t fit in the first trip. We would have to charge $250 for a 1 hour minimum for loading the stuff on to the trailer then by the minute after the one hour minimum. Plus another 350 dollar trip fee to the landfill since the landfill charges a fee and we charge a fee to drive over there and dispose off the grass clippings.

8. We don’t offer refunds on any of our services all sales are final
All sales are final once we have serviced your property for any of theses services here whether it be lawn mowing or hedge trimming mulching flower bed’s, weed pulling, leaf removal services. We don’t do refunds if a service could not be completed due to a dog in the backyard or a locked gate and we could only do a partial service.
