Why does may neighbors grass look greener them mine and he uses X company?
Because they have not aerated this year at all also their grass is getting cut to short. Or letís do a soil sample and find out what fertilizer we may need to apply to get you that same look. May be as simple as over seeding or a water plan. Your lawn requires 1Ē of water a week. Let me show you how to check if your lawn is getting that much.
The lawn guy sat in his truck and did nothing but still put an invoice on my door.
Hmmm. I donít know about that company but when we come out we walk the property and take notes on how things are going. Even if your grass has not grown enough for us to cut, your yard still needs to have sticks or trash picked up. If I donít get out of the truck then I am not charging you.
Can I walk on the grass after you fertilize it? Will it hurt my dog?
Depends on the fertilizer we are using. We try to keep in mind when there are children and pets involved. We will give you an information sheet when we finish, this is to make sure you are informed of what you can and cannot do. Let us look at your lawn and see what we need.
What if it rains?
Rain is good for your lawn. We do not come out and cut your lawn if it will hurt it. It is our job to improve your lawns current condition. Usually if we have a rainout day and we cannot service your lawn we reschedule with you.
I have a locked gate can you call ahead of time.
Sure but a lot of our customers either get a combination lock for their gats or they purchase on from us. I have one on my truck right now, would you like it? It is also a good idea not to leave your gate unsecured or unlocked throughout the day. or you can make a key and give us a copy of the key.
How long before I can let my dog out.
Depends on the fertilizer we use.
Did you ever work for a landscaper or lawn company before?
Sure have, in fact I love working outside meeting new people. My job is a real rewording job! How many people can take satisfaction and say look at that beautiful yard, I did that.

I have cut one or two lawns in my time. Would you like to walk with me over your property and I will go over the things I feel will improve your lawn.

Where do you get your mower from? Who fixes it for you?
I fix my own equipment in most cases. If I am unable to fix it, it depends on where I am at, if it is a small part then I stop at a nearby shop and pick it up. As far as buying my equipment a few places. It is my job to look for great deals on my equipment in turn passing those savings on to you.
Why are you mowing or applying in the rain , why are you cutting the grass it has not rained in a month? ( nobodys ever asked me this one cause I don't do it) but other companies do to meet quota.
