For most people, lawn mowing is a hassle. It’s a chore that takes up precious free time on the weekend. Chances are, you approach it with a hurry-up-and-get-it done attitude, which doesn’t do your lawn any favors.

As resilient as your grass may seem, it has a delicate, finicky side. If you cut it too short or too often, the stress weakens your lawn and makes it susceptible to weed growth, erosion, and soil damage. You may think you’re saving time by cutting it extra short (more time between mowing, right?), but you may actually find yourself with bigger, more time-consuming projects in the future as you try to eliminate weeds or repair the health of your soil.

Investing in professional lawn mowing not only saves you time now, it can help you save time and money in the long run, too. At Better View Landscapes, we mow lawns in South Hadley, Massachusetts with a focus on grass and soil health. With 25 years of horticulture and landscape construction experience in the Pioneer Valley, we understand the soil and the climate, and we pride ourselves on providing friendly, hassle-free service that ensures your lawn is cared for with minimal disruption to your daily life.

With a full range of landscaping services, we can take care of all your lawn and landscaping needs, from planting and lawn renovation to snow removal, outdoor living design and installation, and more. Contact us to customize a lawn care program in South Hadley or any nearby community.

Why Work With Lawn Mowing Professionals

People have been mowing their own lawns for decades—do you really need a professional to do this every-day chore? The truth is, yes. There’s a science to mowing, and working with nature’s laws ensures your grass and soil stay healthy for a better-looking lawn and reduced hassle and upkeep down the road. 

In accordance with University of Massachusetts extension guidelines, we cut your grass to the ideal height of 3.25-3.5 inches, which protects the soil and naturally fights weeds. We sharpen our mower blades every day for a clean cut that’s less stressful on the grass. 

We mow on a weekly basis so you know what to expect. This way you can come home to a beautiful lawn and spend your free time doing something you truly enjoy. We stay in close communication with you, so if weather conditions cause a delay, we’ll contact you to reschedule. With Better View, we can offer mowing, fertilization, soil analysis, overseeding, and more—we do it all under one roof. 

We take pride in maintaining an attractive lawn for you, and we invest in training and equipment to ensure we can always deliver the best results with the most up-to-date techniques and materials. Contact us today to learn more about our full range of landscaping services, including lawn mowing and lawn care.

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.

How We Manage Your Project

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:

    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.
