Spring Cleanups, Fall Cleanups, and Leaf Removals

Even if you are willing to get out there and clean up the lawn and landscape, you may not have anywhere to take the debris!  No worries.  We haul all debris with us and properly dispose of it offsite.  When you hire Mowing Lawns Properly, all you have to do is enjoy your lawn and landscape.

Leaves left to hang around your lawn and landscape over the winter months tend to somehow always end up in the house!  We are just a phone call away.  Besides being a nuisance, they can also introduce disease and fungi to your lawn and plants if not removed.

Our Lawn Care Service Q&A

Frequently Asked Questions

How much are your lawn care services?

Every lawn and landscape is just a little different!  Please contact us and we are more than happy to check out your lawn or landscape as soon as possible or schedule a time to meet you there at your convenience.

Do you have proper business licensing and insurance?

Yes, we do!  We are licensed and insured to perform lawn and landscape services in Alabama.  If you would like a copy of our business license and our insurance policy please ask and we will email it over immediately.

What are the payment options for your lawn services?

We accept all major credit cards, money orders, and cash.

When would we need to pay for our lawn care or landscaping service?

All payments are due at the time of service. If you are not going to be home during the time of service, you have the option to pre-pay, leave a payment somewhere on your property for us to collect while there, or you can have us securely hold your credit card on file and we will automatically bill you once you have approved our work.

When did you start your lawn care business?

Mowing Lawns Properly officially started offering lawn care and landscaping services in 2012.  We had been doing it on the side for years before forming the official business.

What is included in your lawn mowing service?
We run the mowers over your lawn getting a nice, clean, even cut on all of the open grass areas.  We trim around edges and obstacles with a string trimmer and edge off hard surface borders such as walkways, driveways, and patios to give them that finished, manicured look.  Once all mowing, trimming, and edging has been completed, we blow off the grass clippings leaving your lawn looking amazing!
You can learn mowing about our Birmingham-Hoover Metro Area lawn mowing service and our other lawn and landscape service on our lawn services page.
How often do you cut the grass?

Weekly or every other week.  If your lawn is getting too long between cuts on an every other week schedule we will need to bump it up to weekly service until the grass growth speed slows down or charge an additional fee to make it look good before leaving.  We won't leave your lawn not looking great.  Thanks for understanding!

What if my grass didn't grow and my next lawn mowing is coming up very soon?
We don't even want to run our mowers over a lawn that doesn't need to be cut.  If we are experiencing a drought, or the grass growth rate slows down for any other reason such as the season, we will simply skip that week's service and you will not be billed. 
What if it literally rains all week long?

We certainly don't want to damage your lawn by attempting to mow it when the ground is still soft from a large amount of rainfall.  We have been cutting grass for a long time and will use our best judgment and communicate well with you if and when this situation arises.

At what height do you mow the grass?

Lawn mowing best practices recommend to not remove more than 1/3 of the length of the grass blade at a time.  We follow this recommendation.  If you think we are cutting your lawn to high or too short, please just let us know.  We are happy to adjust our mowers per your request.  

If your lawn does have slopes, we may be limited to how low we can cut the grass due to the commercial mower deck size.
