Mowing


It has become the American dream - a safe and inviting home enhanced by a lush, green carpet that serves as a cushion for your family at play. Home, lawn, children, and pets all require routine maintenance, some more than others. If you give each proper care and attention, chances are they'll thrive, grow and prosper.

When it comes maintaining your lawn, mowing may be the least-favorite thing on your to-do list. But for us, it's a means of giving back with our artistic expression. 

Whether mowing with a rotary or reel type mower, the mowing heights are based on the growth habit of the grass. Some grasses grow tall and straight, others low and wide. Have one of our friendly staff explain the types of turf your property has and what the correct height your grass is to be maintained.

Based on the square footage of the property being serviced, our technicians will maintain the lawn areas with a mower that is the proper size unless otherwise requested. 

  • 1,000 to 5,000 square feet: 22 inch wide, rotary, gasoline-powered or propane fueled, self propelled mower.
  • 5,000 to 20,000 square feet: 36-inch-wide, rotary, gasoline-powered or propane fueled, self propelled
  • More than 20,000 square feet: 48-inch-wide to 60-inch-wide, rotary, gasoline-powered or propane fueled, self propelled.

Mowing direction will change with each service to eliminate "ruts" and compaction in the soil, guaranteeing your complete satisfaction with a properly mowed appearance.

A clean and freshly sharpened blade will be used on every service visit. This helps to prevent disease from transferring between properties and gives a nice clean cut instead of tearing the blades, leaving your lawn lush and green.
