• How much are your services?
All of our services are tailored based the customer’s property needs, scope of work and duration of project. We would be more than happy to provide you with a free on site consultation and estimate.
• When would I receive a bill and how do I pay?
Typically with all our maintenance contracts you would receive an invoice on the first of every month. This invoice can be mailed or e-mailed. The invoice will have a due date and payment can be mailed or collected upon the next service. With our landscape jobs depending on the size of the project we would ask for a small retainer and the balance is due upon completion of the work. For your convenience we accept all major credit-cards, cash or check.
• When would you start mowing and when does the mowing season end?
We usually start our property cleanups in April and also the opening of the landscape beds. The mowing would start the first week in May. The season wraps up around September / November, weather depending. In November / December we are doing fall cleanups and closing landscape beds for the winter.
• When do you snow plow? How often? Would you sand the driveway?
Our rule of the thumb is — if there is three inches of snow, we are plowing. During some storms when we get a great deal of snow, will be snow plowing more than once. We do offer sanding, and this service would be done at our discretion weather depending.
• When should we contact you for lawn care?
The sooner the better! Our lawn care scheduled gets booked by late spring or early summer.
• Do you have a set time and date when you would service our lawn?
When we meet with you we will discuss a preferred day and time that fits your life style. Please keep in mind that the service day my change due to the weather.
• What type of services do you think we should have?
When we meet with you we will discuss what we would recommend for your property and the options available. We can do a basic lawn mowing and trimming package — or you could add other services, such as more extensive landscaping care and lawn maintenance for the season, or property maintenance for the entire year.
