Weekly Mowing and Bi-Weekly Mowing should link to the same page.

Our mowing service, whether done weekly or bi-weekly(every other week), includes mowing, trimming, edging and blowing off all paved areas.

The right way to care for a bermuda lawn in Texas is to treat it like a golf course fairway, which means mowing the lawn at least three times per week. *(To find out why, click here). *However, outside of golf courses, it isn't financially practical. *So most lawns in this area are mowed either weekly or bi-weekly.

Each year in late February to early March, we scalp the lawn. *The scalp mowing removes all the dormant grass blades and mulches them back into the soil. *This allows more sunlight to reach the soil, which produces faster green up. *This also enables us to start the season at a lower cutting height, which helps us cut grass blades instead of grass stems further into the season. *As the season progresses, we gradually increase the cutting height.

Our regular weekly service begins in late March and goes through mid-October. *In Mid-October we convert our weekly service to bi-weekly service until we get our first freeze, which is typically around Thanksgiving. *Our bi-weekly service starts late March and ends upon first freeze.

As you may notice on our service agreement, we do not allow "skipping". *Many of our customers ask us “What do you do in the winter?” *We try to stay busy in the winter installing landscape designs, but because our strategic focus is on landscape maintenance, that’s tough to do. *We have to earn the bulk of our annual income in 32 to 34 weeks. *There is a limit to how many stops we can schedule in a day, so if you’re on our schedule, you’ll be serviced. *As much as we’d like to allow customers to skip a cut every now and then to save a little on their landscaping bill, we simply aren’t in a position to allow for that. *All of our existing customers have agreed to these terms. *We feel these terms are very reasonable.

Bed Weed Control
Bed weed control consists of pulling or spraying weeds as they emerge from the bedded areas of the landscape. *This service is performed 12 months per year. *Typically, broadleaf weeds and non-crawling grassy weeds are pulled. *Nutsedge and bermuda found growing in beds are sprayed when possible. *We've found that it's nearly impossible to successfully pull these weeds and remove the roots from the heavy clay soils that are native in this area. *That's why we spray them. *Often times, these weeds require multiple treatments.

Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control
The absolute best defense against weeds is a thick, dense, healthy turf. *Our program consists of 6 applications per year and is specifically designed to promote healthy, thick, green turf. *But unlike many of our competitors, our program is also designed with the thought in mind that it's got to be mowed on a practical schedule. *That's why we only apply nitrogen 4 times per year. *We apply just enough nitrogen to keep the lawn healthy, but not so much that it grows too fast, which can easily cause the weekly mowing to be too much work. *Our fertilization & weed control product is designed to achieve maximum results when combined with a weekly mowing schedule and adequate watering habits.

Bed Clean-Up and Mulch
We use only premium shredded cypress mulch, which we have found holds it's color longer than any other type of mulching material. *The service consists of removing all trash and debris found in bedded areas, pulling & spraying weeds and laying new mulch at a depth of approximately 3 inches. *As the mulch ages, it slowly turns gray. *Many customers have us come around every year to apply a light dusting of fresh mulch to cover up the older, gray mulch.

Fire Ant Control
The imported brazilian fire ant isn't native to Texas. *It is thought to have been imported to the US by way of New Orleans over 100 years ago. *Because the fire ant isn't native to Texas, it has no natural predators. *Texas A & M University is in the process of bringing in flies from South America that prey on fire ants, but so far, they haven't survived a winter north of Waco. *The north Texas fire ant problem is here to stay.

Our fire ant product is applied once a year to the entire landscape and not only kills existing *****ies, but also prevents new *****ies from forming for an entire year. *The active ingredient is the same active ingredient used in Frontline, the flea and tick treatment placed on the back of a dog or cat's neck. *On most landscapes, we apply less active ingredient than what you'd find in the dose for a small dog.

I'll finish up later.
Thanks,
Mace Meier
