Your Lawn At It's Best

Grass should be kept at an optimal length to provide shade from Alberta's harsh sun, yet short enough to provide a well-groomed look. At Clover, we assess your needs and determine a lawn care program that is tailor-made to your outdoor space (and grass type).

Lawn Mowing FAQ'S

What is included in weekly/biweekly mowing?

-       Mowing at 2.5" – 3" depending on preference

-       Professional trimming around all edges, garden beds, and corners on property

-       Mulching of all clippings (bagging if preferred)

-       Blow off all hard surfaces, walkways, patios, etc.

-       Removal of any garbage that has blown into the yard

-       Initial edging along city sidewalks and any hard surfaces grass is growing over

When mulching, all clippings are ground to small pieces that break down and feed the turf. Recommended on all lawns. (For any fast-growing lush lawns we will bag clippings).

What would my price be?

Our weekly mowing packages start at $42. From there, we adjust based on square footage. Curious about what your cost would be? Let us give you a free estimate here.

How often should I be cutting my lawn?

As often as you’d prefer!

Keep in mind with bi-weekly service the grass can grow to an overgrowth charge as it is quite a bit of extra work to have it brought back down to a maintainable length from overgrowth. We recommend at least starting the season on weekly cutting until late July when the growth slows, then switching over to biweekly for the remainder.

Bi-weekly will also end up looking a little unkept towards the second week, and is much harder on the grass. Over cutting the blade portion low will stress the plant. Leaving it more open to drying out, disease, and weed growth through the season.

We only allow biweekly service on our slowest growing lawns and will require the service to be moved to weekly if the grass is consistently overgrown. We do always recommend weekly. However, we are willing to accommodate bi-weekly if you understand the risk of it becoming overgrown, and the subsequent charge to bring it back down.

You are free to make the switch from bi-weekly to weekly or vice versa at anytime as long as we are given 10 days notice.

How long should I have my grass cut?

This can vary slightly depending on your grass type.

The standard in Alberta is between 2.5-3”. If your lawn is in a high sun area, being serviced biweekly, or is high in fescue, we recommend 3”.  If weekly, and receiving adequate water and nutrients, we recommend 2.5”

The final say is up to you! We’ll offer our advice, then service the grass to your personal preference.

Do you mulch your clippings?

Yes, we mulch all clippings unless otherwise specified. We recommend mulching clippings as they break down feeding the lawn and providing heat shade.

With mulch being almost entirely water as well as nutrient-dense, mulching is one of the most important steps to a healthy lawn.

When mulching, we recommend power raking each year to remove any excess thatch that was left from mulching over the winter.

What do you do with any remaining grass clippings?

All remaining clippings are left in your green bin for the composting facility.

How often am I billed?

We bill all of our routine maintenance clients at the end of each month. You will receive an email with your invoice attached along with a link to your client portal. We accept e-transfer, cash, credit card, and cheque. If you’d like to set up auto billing, let us know!

Am I locked into a contract?

You are free to end your lawn maintenance service agreement at anytime as long as 10 days notice is given to our office via email. You are also free to change your schedule from weekly/biweekly under the same terms.

Which day will I be serviced?

Depending on which city section you reside in, you will have a set day for service each week. We send a reminder email the day prior to our arrival. Keep in mind with weather/delays it can be a day early or late.

We will send a reminder email/text prior to your service date.

Will I be charged for taller grass?

Anything over 5” is deemed as overgrowth service and a charge will be applied to the visit. To avoid this, we recommend starting your program early in the spring when we are out for our spring clean-up route (see rates here).

Overgrowth is quite time consuming on our crews and machines, as well as hard on grass blade health.

We bill overgrowth mowing on time at $62 per man hour.  In our experience, if you think it may be a bit tall, it is likely overgrown.

What equipment do you use?

We use high end, commercial lawn mowers and trimmers. For mulching, commercial mowers are paramount in ensuring clippings are broken down well enough to leave a clean look.

Do you edge along sidewalks?

Yes! For all weekly/biweekly packages we provide an initial power edging along your walk ways. Call us if you’d like it redefined up to once a month.
