About Mowing Lawns Properly

How our lawn care service came to be…

Chris Parsons started Mowing Lawns Properly in 2012.  Born and raised in Hoover, AL, Chris spent most of his childhood outdoors playing sports and fishing with the other neighborhood kids.


When it was time to get a job, Chris was not all that interested in a ‘normal’ job!¬† It wasn’t that he didn’t have a solid education or lacked work ethic, he simply didn’t want to be stuck inside the majority of the day!


Working outdoors with the lawn and landscapes in the fresh air and sunshine sounded much more appealing!  What started as a young man with a lawn mower has grown into the lawn care and landscaping company you see today.

More about the Owner of Hoover, Alabama’s Favorite Lawn Service

Chris grew up in Hoover, AL and graduated from Hoover High School.¬† There is an interesting story behind the name of Mowing Lawns Properly.¬† Yes!¬† It is a simple statement that clearly lets our potential clients know we fully intend to, in fact, mow your lawn properly!¬† That is the only way we will do it.¬† But, MLP are Chris’ son’s initials and a daily reminder to Chris of why he gets out of bed and goes to work for his clients each day.

The Parson’s like many of us in the South prefer to vacation up north.¬† Their family’s favorite place to go is Minnesota.¬† You might just catch Chris out eating with the fam in town at Habanero’s.¬† Or pumping gas at Chevron on Morgan Rd.¬†or at the Winn-Dixie nearby.

Mowing Lawns Properly likes to support other local businesses whenever possible.  One of their favorites is Global Services Inc in Hoover, AL.  This is their go-to printer for company shirts.  They also use Southern Nameplate and Graphics in Bessemer for decals on their vehicles.  At the end of the day, Chris and his team are just happy to contribute to the local community and would love a shot at your lawn care business.

What are the payment options for your lawn services?

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

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.

If you question was not answered, please feel free to contact us.  We are more than happy to clarify any questions or concerns you may have.
