When you want to hire a commercial lawn care service, you need the right information so you can make the best decision for your business. Whether your annual budget dollars are in the thousands or hundreds, it’s crucial to hire the right commercial lawn care service company, one that will work for you.

You know the many benefits of having a professional landscape design. But do you know what to ask so you’re getting the best service for you and your company?

Here are five questions to ask before hiring a commercial lawn care service.

How long have you been in business?

Knowing how long a company has been around can be a pretty good indicator of its reputation. Companies with a poor reputation don’t stay in business very long.

J & S Landscaping is located in the greater Walled Lake and West Bloomfield areas of southeastern Michigan. We have completed projects in Novi, White Lake and other cities. You don’t stay in business as long as we have without building a great reputation through experience, expertise and installation skills.

We take pride in the positive reviews and comments we get on the work we do for our clients. In face, we are so confident in our work, that we are happy to share landscaping references for projects of similar size and scope in the area. And our workmanship is guaranteed for two years and plants are covered for one year.

What services do you offer?

Contacting a professional is the first step. At J & S Landscaping, our landscape designers will sit down with you and help you plan for your landscape needs while keeping within your budget. We can help you on a weekly, monthly or annual basis.

We offer:

  • weekly lawn mowing
  • weeding and maintenance
  • core aeration
  • spring and fall leaf/debris clean-ups
  • prune trees, shrubs and bushes
  • conduct annual and perennial flower plantings.

Additional lawn services include sprinkler irrigation system installation, repair, maintenance, and winterizing. Finally, we’re the best in the business at fertilizing, weeding, and decorative outdoor low-voltage landscape lighting, so your employees and customers are safe during the evening hours.

What certifications do your employees have?

J & S Landscaping is an Authorized Contractor for Belgard Hardscapes and a proud member of the Michigan Nursery and Landscape Association. This means we have the skills to install your walkway or any other hardscape feature you’d like on your commercial property. And of course we know which plantings and trees work best for our part of the country and your property’s particular soil.

And if it’s mulch you need, we are the ones to contact for premium mulch from Northern Michigan hardwood trees.

“There were a few days delay but for a good reason. They were not happy with the quality of some of the pavers and kept sending it back to their supplier until it was perfect.” ~ Stuart Turner, Michigan

Can you work within my budget?

Part of the planning process is making a budget. An experienced professional landscaping company will be able to offer the client intelligent estimates. The client determines what their budget can handle, then we work with them to keep within it.

“Professional estimates/billing – not a scribbled note as received from some other contractors – pricing was competitive.” ~ Robert Fridenberg, Novi.

Are you insured? Do you have references?

We are confident in our work and are happy to share landscaping references for projects of similar size and scope in the area. Our workmanship is guaranteed for two years and plants are covered for one year.

Although we take every precaution on the job, we know anything can happen. We are fully insured and for your reassurance, provide copy of that before the start of every job.


Our commercial lawn care specialists know the difference between mowing and manicuring. We go beyond the minimum to help you create that important first impression and when you look good, we look good.
