Grass Monkey Mowing Pro's

It's All About the Details

Professional Mowing

Mowing like a pro is about mastering a few key techniques to achieve a healthy, pristine lawn. We start by ensuring sharp mower blades, as they make cleaner cuts, promoting a healthier lawn. Alternate mowing directions each session to prevent grass from leaning in one direction, resulting in a more even and professional look. Setting the mower at the proper height helps maintain grass health by avoiding stress on the roots. Additionally, we try to never cut more than one-third of the grass height at a time to keep your lawn looking lush. These simple yet effective tips can transform your lawn care routine and yield professional results.

Trimming and Edging

Attention to trimming and edging while mowing is the key to achieving a manicured perfection in your lawn. Trimming involves tidying up the edges around flower beds, walkways, and other landscaping features, offering a polished finish to your lawn's appearance. Precise edging along driveways and sidewalks creates clean lines, elevating the overall aesthetic appeal. Consistent trimming and edging not only enhance the visual appeal but also prevent overgrowth and maintain a well-defined boundary for your lawn. Paying attention to these details while mowing elevates the presentation of your lawn, ensuring a manicured perfection that impresses at every glance.

Blowing and Clean-up

Our post-mowing cleanup is comprehensive and meticulous, We use powerful backpack blowers to perform a thorough removal of grass clippings and debris from driveways, sidewalks, and entryways and patios, ensuring a spotless finish that complements the freshly cut lawn. We disperse clumps of grass on the lawn evenly, promoting a uniform appearance and healthier growth. This commitment to complete cleanup showcases our dedication to delivering top-tier lawn maintenance, leaving your entire property impeccably groomed after each service.

What Our Customers Say

"I am very satisfied with this company's professionalism and they do a great job on my lawn. I thought I did a good job but these guys had my lawn looking better than it ever has! Price is very good. Would highly recommend Grass Monkey if you are in need of lawn services."

Dean Houston


"We have been using Grass Monkey for the past 3 mowing seasons.  I have never been more pleased with that decision.  Due to some health issues a few years back, I asked a couple of my neighbors how they liked their different lawn services.  In all cases, those using Grass Monkey clients were all pleased with GM's service and their lawns showed it.  We signed on with them, and even with me back on my feet, have allowed them to continue caring for my lawn.  Need a class operation to take care of your lawn, go hire a “Monkey!"

"This is our first year using Grass Monkey after having a couple of years with another company that was not getting the job done.  We observed Grass Monkey caring for our neighbor’s yard.  They do a nice job of edging without scalping areas.  Everything is blown clean at the end of the session, and they get to some of the odd spots in the lawn that were normally overlooked in the past.  Last fall they did a very thorough job with leaf removal and clean up at our neighbor’s yard, which we will definitely use.  So far we are very happy with their service."

Mowing Service Details

Mowing Season:

April 1st - November 30th. (Start and stop dates may vary according to weather and lawn conditions.)


Lawns are typically mowed on the same "target" day, one time per week. During slow growth or heavy rain periods, we may slow, suspend, or accelerate your mowing rotation to achieve proper mowing conditions.


Please let us know 24-48 hours in advance if you need us to skip or reschedule your regular mowing. If your skip request is not received 24 hours prior to your typical service day, you will be charged the full mowing price regardless of the week's service performed.

Mowing Height:

Most cool-season grass types, such as fescue and bluegrass, have a recommended cutting height between 3 - 3.5 inches. We generally cut grass at 3.25 - 4 inches because a lawn cut at this height will have a deeper root system and be more resistant to weeds and disease than shorter-cut grass. If you prefer a high or low cut, we will be happy to accommodate.

Auto Pay:

Auto Pay is required for all lawn mowing services. It saves you time and takes one more thing off of your to-do list. Credit cards or ACH accounts are charged the day of or 1-5 days after service is provided. *Projects over $999 require a 50% deposit and are billed at the time of service with payment due on receipt. Log into your account page to manage your credit card information. Beginning January 1, 2024, we are now able to accept ACH or electronic check payments.

Leaf Mulching & Removal:

In early fall, mowing and mulching a light coating of leaves provides valuable nutrients to your turf. However, as fall progresses, larger amounts of leaves can become a problem by starving your turf of sunlight and providing an ideal environment for pests and disease. Whether it is for the health of your lawn, or you simply want a leaf-free landscape, the Grass Monkey team will take extra time to bag and/or move leaves to your curb for city pickup. *Additional charges will apply for extra time spent moving leaves.
