MOWING PACKAGES

Erie's True all inclusive, premium mowing service.  

The price we provide includes everything stated in our Basic mow package listed at the bottom of the page.  

Landscaping, as well as mowing is an art.  It is also a science.  Elegant hires true, highly trained professionals that will assess your lawn at each service and determine direction of mow (alternating direction when space allows), proper blade height, most desirable mow patterns, as well as make any recommendations in an effort to improve health of turf and landscape.  Our equipment is maintained in an effort to provide the best possible care, which includes daily sharpening of blades to ensure a healthy trim.
Our crews are fully uniformed and our fleet is logo'd and maintained to provide the most professional appearance while servicing your property.  The difference is in the details.  Each crew has a crew leader that will ensure your property is left in a picture perfect state.  In addition, our Director of Operations performs routine visits to sites to ensure our core values and quality standards are being upheld.  You can take comfort in knowing your property will be in good hands!

NO HIDDEN FEES:  Some companies will advertise or provide a low price for just the mowing service in an effort to lure you in, then charge additional fees for trimming, edging, bagging, monthly billing, etc.   Feel confident there will be no surprises in the service, agreement, or bill with Elegant Landscaping.  We will lay everything out for you in detail, and provide you with a monthly, detailed statement of services provided. 
 
Services start at just $20 with guaranteed professional results.  In addition to our highly competitive price, we offer many incentive programs for signing up friends, family, and neighbors.  You have the potential to receive every mowing free for the entire season.  

NO BINDING CONTRACT: We do not bind our residential clients by contract.  You are free to terminate service at anytime.  You will only be billed for services performed.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER SIGNING ON FOR SERVICE:  Upon accepting the estimate and sending your signed agreement back to us, we will immediately assign you to a designated route.  You will then be sent a welcome pack that includes an introduction letter, information about the services you signed on for, contact information, and referral cards you may use to pass out to family and friends.  Routine maintenance and weekly mowing is billed the last day of every month.

    BASIC MOWING SERVICE STANDARDS  
     
    WHAT DOES OUR BASIC MOWING SERVICE INCLUDE?  
     
    Mowing-  All turf areas shall be mowed on a 4-7 day weekly schedule, or as described in the Scope of Work Section.  Typical season runs From Middle of April through November (pending weather).  
    Edging- Edges will be maintained each weekly service with line trimmers. Hard blade edging will be performed once in the beginning of the season and again later in season if needed on all annual agreement clients.  There may be additional charges for the initial edging if overgrowth is present.  Edging service is only included with annual service accounts. If service is terminated early, edging charges may be billed separately.   Please note: Hard blade edging can only be completed around fully cured concrete surfaces.  If your concrete is less than 2 years old, please be sure to inform us so we do not use hard edgers around the area.  Softer landscapes will be edged with line trimmers alone.  
    Trimming- Line trimming will be completed during each service in areas inaccessible to mowing equipment, and around all foundation lines, fence lines, and any other obstructions on property.  Unless directed otherwise, we may use post emergent sprays around fence-lines and difficult to trim areas to reduce growth in these areas.
    Blowing- All hard surfaces will be cleaned after service is complete with commercial blowing equipment.  Though we try to make yards appear picture perfect, if the grass is damp it may not be possible to clear all clippings, as they tend to stick until they dry out.
    Bagging Clippings- Included in your all inclusive rate, unless otherwise specified on agreement, is collection of lawn clippings using commercial bagger systems.  This service will be provided at no additional cost for weekly lawn clients to reduce visible clumps within the turf when the need arises.


LEAF CLEANUP FOR MOWING CLIENTS

OPTION 1:  BASIC LEAF CLEANUP 

DEFAULT:  All leaves on turf will be mulched and bagged with mowing units each weekly mowing.  This is the default package that all mowing clients are provided unless leaf service is waived or another package is selected.  Service is billed hourly or based on average service rate.

OPTION 2:  SUPER LEAF CLEANUP 

  • All leaves on turf areas will be mulched and bagged each week with mowing unit.
  • PLUS A one-time end of season cleanout of beds, hedges, and shrubs.   To be completed at end of mowing season (Nov-Dec).

OPTION 3:  FIXED RATE LEAF CLEANUP 

  • Same as option 2. 
  • Except we will provide a fixed price for the services rather than hourly billing. 
  • Customer may add other fall time services such as dethatching or aerating lawn, dead-heading plants/ flowers, grooming landscape beds, pruning, etc.

WAIVED LEAF CLEANUP

Any leaves on turf will be mulched over and not collected for removal.  If mowing client wishes to waive cleanup service, we highly recommend removing leaves from turf prior to your anticipated mow date as leaf  debris on turf may suffocate root system. 



Q: How is the hourly billing computed?
A: We will bill additional time only for the time spent removing the leaf debris.  Ex. If your average mow time is 20 minutes and we spend an additional 10 minutes onsite collecting and hauling leaves, you will be billed only for the additional 10 minutes.  We will not bill for leaves if no additional time was taken to collect them.  The additional fees vary depending on the number of trees and amount of leaf debris on your property.  A property located within the woods can expect to pay more than someone with just a few trees.  The average rate our customers pay is between $5-$8 additional per week throughout the fall mowing season (ave 4-6 mowings).   Larger yards average $10-$12 additional per week.  Excessive debris that requires haul away may result in additional charges.  

Q: I like to know how much I will be paying in advance.  What other options are available?
A: We understand budget needs so we developed a fixed rate option.  We can provide you with an upfront cost to cover you through the entire season.  The cost would included the weekly cleanup, as well as a one time end of season cleanup.   

Q: How do I make my selection?
A:  By default, all mowing customers will receive Option 1 (Basic Package).  If you wish to upgrade to another package, or wish to waive service, you must notify us prior to October 1st. You may call the office or email your selection.  Or you may check your selection on the reply that will be mailed to you (if you receive mailed invoices).
