  • Are your services guaranteed?
    Yes! We will do everything in our power to make sure you are satisfied with your lawn. But please keep in mind that lawn care is a partnership and we need your help. Please follow our mowing and watering guides which you can find under the resources tab. There are also some elements to lawn care which are out of our control. Excess moisture, shade, and lack of air flow are all environmental effects which no amount of chemicals or fertilizers can overcome. If something doesn’t look right with your lawn please contact us asap. The faster we are aware of any issues the faster we can come up with a solution.

  • How do I make payments?
    You have a couple different options to make payments.

  • How much do the services cost?
    The cost of our lawn care programs is calculated based on the total square footage of the lawn you wish to have treated.

    It depends on your lawn expectations. Some lawns are more prone to disease and pest infestations than others. Lots of factors come into play such as shade, watering and mowing practices, moisture retention, and airflow.
