We will do our best to keep your lawn looking nice throughout the year. At the start of the growing season, lawns are slow to grow. We recommend cutting every 10-14 days. As the season gets warmer and grass starts to grow faster, We recommend grass be cut every seven days. As fall approaches we recommend going back to 10-14 day cuts.

*All hours are rounded up to nearest 1/4 hour for simplicity

We DO NOT move Boats, swing sets, trampolines, or other large items in the yard. Those items should be moved, prior to arrival or they will be mowed/trimmed around [not under]. There is too much liability to move them & insurance does not allow for it.

If there is excessive rocks/dirt/debris from your winter plowing, for example, that needs to be dealt with to avoid harm to our lawn equipment, expect additional time to deal with those issues to be on the bill, in order to remove that debris. Dirt will be removed with the lawn clippings, or relocated somewhere as to not cause a hazard to future lawn personnel.

Edging will be done upon request. Edging, If required will remain at the $25/hr rate. Also billable will be the time to remove the tailings that the edging process has created. All dirt/debris removed will be removed by trailer, and disposed of at the rate of $10 a trailer load. [disposal fee]

Snow Removal

We would also like to maintain your grounds 'as needed' this winter.

Services are provided hourly at $25/hr. with a 1.66hr minimum. + cost of De-Icer. [If required]

The snow will be removed by means of Plow, Snow Blower and or by Shovel. We also provide services to remove snow from roofs.  Generally speaking: we do not do "auto pilot' for our residential customers. That is we do not provide services merely because it snows. As a commercial customer it makes sense for you to want your snow removed at a certain depth. For Example: The Post Office needs their snow removed when there is an accumulation of an inch on the ground. If it is in our agreement, We would remove the snow to your specifications.

If salt is to be put down, it will be added to your bill. You may choose to provide salt. If you desire, we can also scrape the sidewalks off with a chipper, rather than 'just salting' these high traffic areas.


Prices Subject to change throughout the season.

If you decide to have us service your property we will need to do a walk-through before services begin.

As with our summer work; Payment is expected upon completion of work, when possible, or pre-arranged intervals.
