Due to the Monday holiday and multiple rains this week, we are obviously running a little behind schedule. After yesterday’s storm shut us down, it became obvious that we will be unable to complete all services this week. As a result, we will be adjusting our routing for the remainder of the weekend to address those properties who have had the longest time since last service. The forecast for next week is promising and this schedule change should allow us to get everyone caught up and back under control as soon as possible. We know your grass is likely taller than you would like, and we are working through the weekend as weather allows to complete as many services as possible. If you are an every other week mowing customer (especially those that are being fertilized), chances are your grass is extremely tall right now, as this is the primary growing…

This notice is being sent to all active lawn service customers. With the rain and wet conditions this week, we were only able to complete about half of our scheduled lawn services. Rain is expected to continue for the next 11 days, and only two are expected to be 30% chance or less. Most are 50% or greater. Thankfully this has dropped from 80-90% for most days that was predicted just a few days ago. Given the weather forecast, we expect delays in mowing services over the next two weeks, but we are going to do everything we can to get everyone caught up as quickly as possible. Some of you will have some tall grass by the time we get caught up but we’d rather cut your tall grass than risk rutting your lawn by putting our equipment on soft soil. We promise we won’t forget about you, but…
