Your lawn draws attention whether it’s healthy or not. Are you known in the neighborhood for perfectly manicured, lush green grass—or brown patches, weeds, and insects? 

You don’t have to live with a lawn that’s hurting your curb appeal and leaving you frustrated as you try to turn it around. At Better View Landscapes, we specialize in lawn renovation, and we know from 25 years of experience in South Hadley, Massachusetts, that even the sickest, saddest lawns can be revived with the right approach. 

That approach starts by identifying what type of lawn you have:

  • The A Lawn: You’re already in a great place, and we’ll support your lawn with weed control and five-step fertilization.
  • The B Lawn: Your grass is just starting to take a turn for the worse with some thin areas and weedy patches—nothing that can’t be corrected with our Basic or Better lawn renovation program.
  • The C Lawn: This is where we start to see lots of bare patches, weeds, and color variation in the grass that’s left. For C Lawns, we typically recommend our Better or Best lawn renovation program.
  • The D Lawn: The situation is dire, but there’s still hope with the Best lawn renovation program. 

Our Basic, Better, and Best programs are customizable with a range of services, including soil analysis, grading, aeration, overseeding, hydroseeding, weed and insect control, and more. We start by assessing your property and making recommendations backed by our extensive horticulture knowledge and experience. When we go to work, we use the right tools and products for the job, and we’ll keep you posted along the way as your lawn improves. Reach out anytime—we’re always happy to answer your questions, and we’re committed to responding to messages promptly. 

Lawn renovation is one of many services we offer home and business owners in South Hadley, Massachusetts, and throughout the area. Contact us today to get started.

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.

Your Best Choice for Lawn Renovation

There’s no challenge too big or too small when it comes to your lawn. Whether the solution is some simple fertilization or an extensive overhaul, our team has the training, experience, and commitment to excellence required for an exceptional lawn renovation.

We know it’s not enough to complete the program. You want your lawn to remain healthy and beautiful as the years go on, so we’re here to answer your questions, teach you how to care for your grass and soil, and offer additional services like lawn care and landscape maintenance to help you.

Consider what type of lawn you have and whether it would benefit from our Basic, Better, or Best program:


This simple plan is a great way to give a B lawn the leg up it needs to really shine. There is no warranty with this plan. It includes:

  • Aeration: With a professional core aerator, we extract small pieces of soil to allow water, oxygen, and nutrients to move directly to the roots of the grass. Those extracted pieces break down and become part of your yard again.
  • Overseeding: This is done after aeration to give the seeds a chance to sink deeper into the soil, where they can take hold and grow to create that thick lawn you’re looking for.
  • Starter Fertilizer: Fresh seeds benefit from extra phosphorus to keep them developing strong, healthy roots. This fertilizer gets your new grass off to a great start.


This plan is suited for most C lawns. It includes the aeration, overseeding, and starter fertilizer from the Basic program, as well as:

  • Slice Seeding: Also called power seeding, we use a machine to cut small rows into the soil, where we’ll plant seeds. This is highly effective for filling in bare areas.
  • Biostimulant: This organic material simply makes nutrients more available to the plants, without actually changing the nutrient content of the soil.
  • 45-Day Germination Warranty: Within the 45 days following seeding, if you notice any areas where the grass seeds didn’t germinate, we’ll come back for one visit to touch up those areas.


When your D lawn needs a complete overhaul from grading, amending soil and hydroseeding, the Best program provides you a whole new start with everything in the Better program, as well as:

  • Soil Analysis: Understanding the nutrient levels and pH of your soil allows us to adjust your program to make up for anything the soil is lacking.
  • Compost Topdressing: We’ll apply a 1/4″-1/2″ layer of compost to the top of your lawn. Because compost is rich in nutrients, it improves the condition of your soil and gives your grass seeds a healthy environment where they can grow.
  • 6-Month Germination Warranty: Within six months following seeding, if you notice any areas where the grass seeds didn’t germinate, we’ll come back for one visit to touch up those areas.

If you’re not sure what your lawn needs, contact us. We’ll help you determine the best course of action for your property.

How We Do What We Do With Precision, Clear Communication, and Friendly Service

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.
