I am very pleased with my Lawn mowing service with ABC, and everyone on the phones is always nice and   conscientious

What lawn mowing services does ABC provide?

ABC offers comprehensive mowing services.

Lawn mowing Austin

If you select our basic mowing service package, in addition to mowing, our technicians will also edge, weed-eat and blow your cut grass from your sidewalks and driveways to keep your lawn looking its best.

If and when you decide you would like more help with your yard, you can add on fertilization, hedge trimming and specialized care for your ornamental trees and shrubs. We can provide you with full-care lawn services to help your entire yard thrive, even during our hot and dry Austin summers.

What happens during the free consultation?

Every lawn is different, so ABC’s mowing experts adopt a customized approach to your outdoor areas. Once you contact us, we will send out an inspector to your property. At that time, we will:

  • Ask you questions to determine exactly which services best fit your goals and budget

  • Take a look at the condition of your grass and plants

  • Answer any questions you might have about the services we offer

After your appointment, we will send you a free, no-obligation quote with suggested services to keep your lawn looking great throughout the year. After you approve the estimate, we can schedule services at a time that works best for you.

What does ABC's lawn mowing service look like at my home?

How often will you mow my yard?

We are happy to work with you to create a schedule for lawn mowing that fits your needs and budget. The factors we take into account to make our recommendations include the type of grass you have in your yard, how quickly your grass grows and your preferred grass height. During some times of the year, we may recommend mowing once a week to keep your yard looking its best.

What is the best length to cut my grass?

Mowing can help stimulate new plant growth, but only if you cut your grass to the optimal height. Keeping your grass healthy can also protect against lawn pests. Cutting grass too short will compromise the plant’s root system, which affects the ability to absorb water and nutrients from the soil, which will stunt plant growth.

Although it used to be common to cut grass to an inch and a half, current best industry best practices range between two and three and three-quarters inches. Grass that is allowed to grow a little longer can more easily tolerate summer heat, which is particularly important in our climate here in Austin.  

Do I need to be home when you are mowing?

In most cases, our lawn technicians are able to mow while you are away. We just ask that you provide our lawn technicians with any information they might need to access your yard and that you keep your pets and children inside while we do our work.

 
Should I bag up my grass clippings?

Grass clippings decompose easily, so setting up your mower to return these to your yard can help return vital nutrients to your soil. These clippings provide you some of the same benefits that mulch can: they provide a bit of shade to your soil’s surface and they allow your plants to retain more moisture. If you prefer to remove clippings for aesthetic reasons, you can choose to compost your clippings so you can add nutrient-rich soil to your grass and plants later on.

What equipment or materials do you use on my yard?

When you choose ABC for your lawn services, you don’t have to worry about getting out the mower for the kid down the street. Our technicians bring commercial-grade equipment to your home, which allows for more consistent and high-quality results.

Why should I choose ABC for my lawn mowing?

Homeowners have been counting on ABC for decades for high-quality home services. That’s because ABC hires qualified employees and gives them extensive in-house training that allows them to exceed our customers’ expectations. Our mowing crews have the skills and expertise to leave your yard looking picture-perfect.

Because we would only want to send someone to your home who we’d want working at our own, we conduct thorough background checks and perform drug testing on all our employees. That way you can feel safe having someone from ABC working on your home. Perhaps more importantly, we are here to make homeowners’ lives easier, so we know that by providing you with quality mowing services, you will have more time to spend on the things you enjoy.
