The Truth About Bi-Weekly Lawn Mowing

Bi-weekly mowing is a request that we occasionally get. We did offer it at first, but after a few years, we have stopped under certain conditions. 

We only offer bi-weekly mowing in the summer and fall when turf growth has slowed or mowing will damage the turf. Here’s why:

  1. The price will not be any different from weekly mowing. Prices are set according to time tables. In the growing season, your grass will be x2 long, resulting in x2 time, resulting in x2 the price. 
  2. It is unhealthy for your lawn. The general rule of thumb is to never take more than 1/3 of the total blade length off at a time.
  3. The thatch layer on your lawn will be significant. Thatch is a decomposing layer of grass and microbes right above your soil. When you cut too much off at one time, this layer is too thick and chokes out the health of your turf. 
  4. It messes with scheduling. Lawn mowing is a game of efficiency. We plan our days to make as little drive time as possible. If we have to go out of our way to mow your lawn twice a month, the price will reflect that. 

Listen, we understand that finances can get hairy throughout the year. Instead of doing bi-weekly cuts and damaging your lawn and our reputation, we offer assistance in extending your billing. We will work with you on any issues you may be facing.
