Residential Lawn Mowing Services
Green grass is the basis of a beautiful and great looking landscape. Our team of trained lawn maintenance professionals will take the burden of mowing the lawn every week or two off your to-do list. We will service your lawn weekly or bi-weekly with commercial grade mowers that are professionally maintained and blades that are sharpened often. We mow all of the grass, edge along all concrete surfaces, then string trim around flowerbeds, trees, and fences for a manicured look. Before we leave, any grass clippings or debris are cleaned off of your driveway, walkway, patios and landscaped areas. The only finger you need to lift is to pick up the phone and call Green Acres Lawn Care & Landscaping at 815-703-0873 and set up your recurring service. Then take your shoes off, relax and enjoy your perfectly manicured lawn. We highly recommend combining our convenient lawn mowing services with our lawn fertilization and weed control program.
Commercial Lawn Mowing Services
Our weekly and bi-weekly commercial lawn mowing services not only take care of the task of turf mowing but also include full grounds maintenance service. Our professionally trained lawn care technicians will mow the grass at the proper height based on current weather conditions, edge next to all concrete surfaces for a neat appearance, line trim around flowerbeds, trees, buildings, retaining walls, and fences to maintain a clean separation from the turf. Before we leave the property all hard surfaces are thoroughly blown off and cleaned of all grass clippings and debris. Like our residential clients we recommend combining our commercial lawn mowing services with our fertilization and weed control services to keep the turf areas healthy.
Proper mowing is critical to keeping your lawn healthy and looking good. Here are three things we do to keep your lawn “a cut above” the rest:
- MOW TALL
Higher mowing promotes deeper roots, prevents water loss by shading the soil, and reduces weeds by preventing sunlight from warming weed seeds. Taller grass also cools the soil and reduces heat stress. We keep our mower blades set to no lower than 3”
- MOW OFTEN ENOUGH
Be sure that no more than 1/3 of the total grass blade is removed in any one mowing. Mowing too short removes too much of the green part of the plant, leaving stalky-looking crowns and stems. This gives the lawn a brown, scalped look and weakens the grass. Recovering from even a single “scalping” sets the lawn’s growth back many weeks. Signing up for weekly mowing services guarantees that the least amount will be cut to maintain strong, thick grass.
- PROFESSIONALLY MAINTAINED EQUIPMENT
Our equipment is inspected and maintained on a regular basis by our well trained, in house technicians. Dull mower blades can rip and shred the tips of your grass blades, turning them a bleached, tan color and leaving the whole lawn looking brown. Our blades are sharpened daily and replaced as needed to ensure the highest quality and best results.
