There are certain expectations a customer has when hiring a lawn company.
Hiring a lawn and snow service is a luxury, if customers are paying a pretty penny to have their property professionally maintained they’ll likely want some customer service, too.
As a provider, it’s best practice to make sure you create a checklist outside of the services they ordered. This ensures that they are not only pleased with the quality, but the experience as a whole.

When To Double Cut Your Lawn
For A Cleaner Cut
Double cutting can help give your lawn a cleaner and higher quality cut. If your grass has grown just a little bit too tall, mowing once—even if you’re following the one-third rule—can rip the blades of grass and cause damage to your lawn. Unless you’re using very sharp blades in your mower, double cutting may be a better option when it comes to lessening the stress on your turfgrass.
For a cleaner cut across your lawn, raise your deck height for the first round of mowing. After that, mow your lawn the second time with your blade lowered to the desired final height.
When Your Grass Is Too
The optimal length for most cool-season turfgrass is about 2 to 2 ½ inches, so wait until your lawn has grown around 3 inches before mowing. If you’re unsure about which type of grass you have, it’s worth asking your lawn provider what the right height is for your lawn’s specific breed or blend of grass. Just make sure you don’t mow your lawn while it’s still dormant. By monitoring your grass until it reaches a specific height, you’ll know that your grass is growing and ready for mowing!
