With the exception of your lawn being heat stressed, Residential Lawn Care, LLC will mow once a week. Mowing service includes string trimming. And, at a minimum, we will blow our debris out of landscaping, and off driveways and walkways. We change mowing to acceptable height for the time of year, with the range being between 2.75 and 4 inches.
We only use equipment that is easy on the turf with as few wheels on the ground as possible. we own 21” 32” & 52” mowers. Image & cleanliness are important to us. After all out in the field it’s our advertisement.
Blades are sharpened every 5-10 hours. Depending on the season and conditions, we will rotate between hi-lift, standard lift, and mulching blades.
We have established some of the best lawn care practices in the industry by alternating mowing patterns, only using sharp blades so your grass tips aren’t frayed and brown. Upon entering warmer temperatures, we will mow taller so you won’t need to water as much; if your lawn is completely heat, stressed we won’t mow. But…! Depending on your curb appeal, we may mow at a high setting to bring your lawn’s surface to an even height, while keeping as much of the plant as possible to help it shade itself.
The University of Minnesota has a great article on lawn clipping management, and they (along with many other studies) have found that it is not recommended that you catch grass clippings because it helps provide natural nutrients for your lawn. However, we can–on occasion–bag them for an extra charge.
We will string trim along your landscape edging, house/buildings, and trees. We do not string trim inside landscape areas.
