Vacation Lawn Care / "One Time Cuts"

Going on vacation?  Lawn mower break down?  Want to surprise a friend?  We love talking to new customers and short-term work!

(A $10 fee is added for "one" or "two time cuts" to compensate for the extra administration)  If you schedule three or more cuts in a row the fee is free!


Contracts?

Most residential customers prefer not being locked into a monthly contract.  No problem!  We charge per cut.

If you would prefer a contract, we can easily set that up!


Cut Frequency?

Each customer is assigned a day of the week.

Weekly grass cutting usually begins in May and goes into October depending on the weather.

We come consistently each week unless:

  1. we hit a very hot dry spell and a lawn is not watered.  If we determine the mower tires might burn the grass we will skip a week.
  2. you see there will be nothing to cut.  Just give us a two day heads up and we'll be happy to wait a week.

You are not charged for weeks we skip.


Can I have my lawn cut more frequently?

Absolutely!  We will gladly schedule a second weekly cut during periods of heavy growth.  Just let us know.


What about rain days?

Our equipment works surprising well even if the ground is wet from light rain.

If we get heavy rain we will pause our daily work schedule and pick up where we left off when conditions become more suitable again.


Cutting height?

Spring - some lawn types benefit from being cut slightly shorter to allow heat to penetrate and begin to warm up the roots.

Summer - 2 ¾" is standard.

Late Fall - cutting the grass shorter right before winter discourages voles from making tunnels, reduces grass matting, and prevents snow mould.  Grass is very resilient and winters well so there is no fear of frost harming your lawn if the grass is shorter.


Billing frequency?

Invoices for regular customers are sent out the beginning of each month for work completed the month before.

For example: June lawn care is invoiced beginning of July.
