Q: Do I have to sign a contract?
A: Residential customers are not required to sign a contract for any services. Commercial customers are required to sign a contract to protect both parties interests.
Q: Do you accept credit cards?
A: At this time we do not accept credit cards, only bank issued or personal checks. We are looking into that option for the near future though.
Q: Are you licensed and insured?
A: Yes. We are licensed with the state of Minnesota to apply non Ag fertilizer, as well as insured with liability coverage for personal injury, property damage, and workers compensation.
Q: When and how often should I water my lawn during the mowing season?
A: The best time to water your lawn is in the early morning, between 4-8 am for example. Watering midday, although good for cooling the plant and reducing heat stress, does allow the sun to evaporate some of the water before it reaches the soil. Nightly watering should be avoided due to the fact that the grass remains wet for an extended period of time, which can encourage the development of turf-grass diseases. How often you water should be dependent on how much rain you get in a given week. Lawns should receive 1-1.5 inches per week (minus any rain fall) during the summer months.
Q: Can you give me a quote for mowing without looking at the property first?
A: Unfortunately no, I wish it was that easy, and the reason we do this is for the simple fact that looking at the property first allows us to give you the most fair and accurate price possible.
Q: How do you determine your service prices?
A: All of our prices are based on 2 things, how long the job takes, and what it cost for us to preform the job. We don’t do square footage like some companies because its just not completely accurate. Square footage can tell you the size of the mowing area, but will not tell you how long it will take to trim/blow around landscaping for instance. A common misconception is just because a lawn may be smaller than another, it will automatically cost less to maintain. The reason that is not always true is because although one job maybe large, but have very little trimming, it may take the same amount of time to mow a smaller lawn, with a lot of trimming.
