Mowing – Each mowing service will include mowing of all accessible grass areas, edging along beds and walkways, and blowing of grass clippings from walkways. A $10 additional service fee will be added if any entrance to a grassy area is less than 48 inches in width. We are not responsible if our crews show up and your gates are locked or inaccessible for any reason. After mowing is complete, it is the customer’s sole responsibility to ensure that their yard is cared for properly via water, nutrients, fertilizer, etc. to keep the yard looking its best. The company and/or landscape provider is not responsible if grass dies or becomes discolored after mowing.
