Lawn mowing is a common summer chore across the country, and a lot of people do it on their own. That makes it easy to forget that there’s a science to it. Cutting your lawn too short or too frequently puts stress on the grass and opens the door to weed growth, which requires more time and attention as you try to eliminate the weeds. It can also contribute to erosion and soil damage. You may think you’re saving time by cutting the grass shorter or not sharpening your lawn mower blades, but in the long run you’ll have to invest more time and money on your lawn to repair the damage. 

That’s not to discourage a DIY attitude, but you should know there’s a simpler way. At Better View Landscapes, we have 25+ years of lawn care and landscaping experience, and we’ve perfected our approach to lawn mowing to ensure you enjoy a lush, beautiful yard without the hassle. 

The Pioneer Valley is our home, and we have experience with the local climate, soil, and landscaping trends, backed by extensive training, industry certifications, and high-quality equipment. We’ll manage the mowing at your Amherst, Massachusetts property, along with any other lawn care or landscaping needs you have, so you can enjoy an incredible outdoor space without sacrificing your free time. Contact us to learn more about our lawn mowing services, customized lawn care programs, and how we bring experienced landscaping to Amherst and the surrounding communities.

Why We’re Your Go-To Lawn Mowing Team

We know it’s not easy to trust someone else with your property, which is why we go above and beyond to earn that trust. From ongoing education and training to well-maintained equipment and high-quality materials, our goal is to ensure you love the work we do for you in Amherst. 

When it comes to mowing, our attention to detail sets us apart:

  • To naturally fight weeds and protect the soil, we cut your grass to a height of 3.25-3.5 inches according to the University of Massachusetts extension guidelines. 
  • We sharpen our mower blades every day (most companies only do this once a week), which not only makes for a smooth cutting experience, it’s also better for your grass.
  • We communicate to find out what schedule works for you, and contact you if weather conditions require us to reschedule.
  • We’re not trying to keep any lawn secrets to ourselves here. We’re happy to answer your questions and give you the professional advice you need to keep your lawn at its best when we’re not around. 
  • Our complete lawn care services go beyond mowing. You can customize a program with fertilization, aeration, soil analysis, overseeding, and more.

Clients Appreciate Our All-Inclusive Approach and In-House Expertise

Our landscaping services are second to none in New England, but don’t take our word for it! Take a look at our reviews to see what our loyal customers have to say.

When we bought our home, the back acre had been cleared years ago but not maintained, so we had a thick patch of thorny growth and grapevine that made it impassible to the nearby forest. Initially we just wanted it all cleared, but Tory had some great ideas to make it into something far more beautiful. Now we have a meandering path through wildflower meadow, a fire pit, a fruit orchard, and a playing field that has completely changed our yard. Would highly recommend Better View for your design needs!

I’ve been working with Better View Landscapes for several years now.  They have a great system of communication by email. The work is done quickly and with attention to detail.  My lawn looks healthy and tidy.  I keep bees there, and Better View Landscapes uses only products that are not harmful to them.  I also count on Better View for snowplowing in the winter.  They’ve always gotten the job done well.  Highly recommended.

Our Proven Approach to Landscaping

At Better View Landscapes, we strive for clarity and transparency. All of our contracts are clearly outlined, with no hidden fees. We tailor your service plan to meet the particular needs of your property, so you can rest assured that your landscaping will look its best year-round. Getting started is simple:

  • Request a Quote

    Contact our office using this online form or call the office directly. We will ask for details about your property, the kind of services you require, and your budget requirements. If you fill out our form, you can expect a call from our representatives within one business day.

  • On-Site or Virtual Meeting

    Once we have determined that your project is a good fit, we will set up an on-site visit or virtual meeting, depending on your project. For design projects and more complex landscaping contracts, we will visit your property to gather information. If you require basic maintenance services, we will conduct an easy virtual meeting via Zoom to clarify the details before preparing your proposal.

  • Estimate

    For our maintenance services, we will prepare a proposal within 3 business days of our first meeting and send it to you for review and approval. Most initial design proposals will be ready within one business day of our initial meeting. Following this design concept meeting, we will prepare your agreement and pricing as discussed and send it to you for approval.

  • Your Custom Plan

    Once we have completed contract discussions, you can review and sign your design plan or care plan. We will request your installation deposit before scheduling work, and your design fee must be paid prior to beginning design work. Most initial design renderings will be ready within ten business days after your design proposal has been accepted, with a follow-up meeting(s) upon completion of the initial design plan. For landscape maintenance plans, we will provide you with an invoice in the week following each service visit, and payment will be charged against the card you have on file.

  • Agreement & Work Begins

    Once you have signed your service agreement, maintenance and installation services will be added to the schedule. You will receive regular communication from our team to ensure that any questions and concerns are addressed quickly. Our team will be available for any questions you may have after each maintenance service visit, and a comprehensive walk-through will be conducted with you upon completion of your installation project.

  • Follow-up Care

    For maintenance contracts, you can expect monthly follow-ups to ensure your satisfaction. For installation services, we will reach out to you after the work is complete to provide follow-up care recommendations and service.
