Reliable Schedule and Communication: You can count on Greengate to be there on the same day every week. Weather events and holidays, of course, are the exception. GreenGate will always provide efficient communication letting you know when a delay due to weather/holiday has occurred.
Sharpened Blades/Optimal Mow Height: To provide the best mowing services near me possible, we sharpen our blades weekly and twice a week during the heavy growing season. So rather than tearing your turf, the grass is “cut.” We set our mowers at an optimal height for the season.
Metal Blade Edgers: Along concrete edges such as the curb and driveway, our lawn maintenance service crews use a metal blade edger rather than a line trimmer. Line trimers tear the grass and create uneven edges. Our metal blade edgers will give you that nice, professional-looking 90-degree edge between the concrete and your turf. Around curves and radiuses, our professional staff uses line trimmers.
Line Trimming: Along the house, flower beds, tree beds, and the fence, we use a line trimmer to maintain overgrowth along the beds and proper height along fences. With thick healthy grass, you can count on your turf acting as an edge to keep in mulch and stone. For crazy healthy, thick turf, check out GreenGates’ award-winning fertilization program.
Blow Off All Surfaces: Once your lawn mowing service is complete, we blow off all surfaces, including driveways, sidewalks, and patios. Few things feel as nice as walking out onto your freshly mowed and manicured lawn…especially if you didn’t have to do it in the hot West University Place summer!!
GreenGate Employees: Many lawn cutting and maintenance companies are little more than internet websites. They use locally hired guys with a truck and a mower to provide West University Place, TX lawn mowing and maintenance services, sometimes with disastrous results. Our professional lawn maintenance crews will arrive in a company truck, wearing a GreenGate uniform, so you always know who exactly is on your property. If you have questions or concerns regarding your lawn services, our friendly team of GreenGate office staff members are always standing by. We can be reached by phone, email, or text Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
Insured For Your Protection: We staff our professional West University Place lawn mowing service with trained professionals using the best equipment available. Greengate also maintains robust insurance to protect you and your most valuable asset, your home. When our crews are on your property performing lawn mowing or maintenance services, you are protected by our liability insurance, workers comp insurance, and fleet insurance.
Professional Grade Equipment: Quality West University Place lawn-cutting service companies will use professional-grade lawn mowing machines that mulch the grass rather than bag it. Did you know that St Augustine grass clippings have 10% nitrogen in them?!!! It is important to note that grass clippings do NOT cause thatch. With our state-of-the-art mowers, we can finely mulch the grass clippings and put them back into your yard as fertile compost. As these micro grass blades decompose, the organic matter in your soil also grows, giving you year-over-year improvements in your turf’s soil health and thickness.
For lawns with a lot size under 9,000 sq. ft., we use a 32″ hydrostatic walk-behind mower with a mulching kit and sulky.
Flower Beds, Trimming, & Grooming Services
GreenGates’ lawn maintenance services are much more than just mowing. Flower beds need constant attention because we have year-round weed pressure, and Greengate has you covered. Our weed-free flower bed program includes professional pre-emergents, spraying as needed, and handpicking weeds.
Most customers choose the bi-weekly option (This means we service your weeds every 2 weeks). A 2-week schedule will not deliver “perfect” flower beds but will keep your beds nice and tidy and provides beds you can be proud of.
*Please note that we only offer this service to current mow customers, and pricing assumes you have an adequate amount of ground cover such as mulch.
Shrub Trimming: West University Place, TX lawn mowing service would not be complete without adding top-notch shrub trimming. GreenGate crews that perform shrub trimming are different from the techs that do your mowing. Our landscapers and trimmers are generally more seasoned and trained to know exactly what needs to be trimmed, how to trim, and the time of year it needs to be done.
For most flower beds, we recommend monthly trimming (at minimum) during the growing season and bi-monthly trimming during the winter months. The longer you wait between shrub trimmings, the less full your shrubs will appear after trimming because a large amount of greenery will need to be removed. Our trimming services include all shrubs/plants/ flowers and ornamental trees up to 12 feet (about one story tall).

This program is an absolute must for large mature landscapes. Our Lawn and Landscape Grooming continues to be a client favorite. We recommend keeping your lawn and landscape looking fabulous and your shrubs and plants happy and healthy once a month!
West U Lawn Mowing Service FAQ
Our lawn mowing service includes mowing the front, back, and sides of your yard on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Our mow crews will also edge along concrete surfaces such as driveways and bed outlines. We edge to be flush with the concrete - if you prefer a gap, just let us know! We finish up with a quick blow of the driveway and beds.
Mow pricing depends upon the size of your property and the condition it is in when you hire us. Lots below 1500 sq ft can be as low as $32.95 + tax if you are on a weekly schedule. Should your lawn be overgrown or out of control, your first mow may require a one-time upcharge. In this instance, we will always contact you for approval before giving our crews the green light to start your mow.
Our crews can mow up to an acre. Larger lots can be accommodated in some instances. Call for more information.
Our mow crews are equipped with a 32” walk-behind mower with a ride-on dolly attached for standard mow services. We do not use any ride-on mowers. If you prefer the use of a push mower without the dolly, an up-charge may occur depending on the lot size. Call for more information
Our mowers are equipped with mulching kits, so we will mulch up all the grass into fine clippings and return them to the yard to not remove valuable nutrients contained in the clippings. If you prefer your clippings to be bagged, it would require the use of a basic push mower, and an up-charge may occur in this instance.
We typically have our mowers set between 3-3.5” to protect grass roots from the sun, and cutting grass too short can cause a myriad of issues to your lawn. Grass blades (leaves) provide food and energy storage gained from water, proteins, and carbohydrates. Like any other plant, it uses these backup nutrient reserves in times of stress, so it is important not to scalp your lawn.
Unfortunately, the decks on our mowers are not easily adjusted on-site. If you would prefer a shorter or longer cut, a smaller push mower is required and will typically require an up-charge, depending on the lot size.
Flower bed maintenance is not included with our basic mow service but is an excellent add-on! Our weed-free flower bed program includes professional pre-emergents, spraying as needed, and handpicking weeds.
Most customers choose the bi-weekly option (we'll service your weeds every two weeks). A 2-week schedule will not deliver "perfect" flower beds but will keep them nice and tidy.
Shrub and/or tree trimming is NOT included with our mow service at this time. Trimming is available as an hourly service, or give us a call to schedule and appointment for a firm quote.
We offer fertilization and weed control as a separate 8-step program throughout the year. To learn more about this program and to request your free estimate, click here.
Unfortunately, we do not offer set-rate one-time mows at this time. We recommend that all of our clients be set up on a weekly or biweekly basis, depending on the season. However, our hourly grooming service is an excellent option for an all-inclusive mow, bed clean up, trim, and any other service you may want or need to clean up your property!
Because everyone's preferences differ, we ask clients to notify us directly of their preferred schedule changes, if any. Many of our clients request their mow schedule be reduced to once per month during the winter season (December-February); this is the only time of year monthly mowing is available. If you prefer not to have your lawn mowed during this time, that's ok too! Your regularly scheduled weekly or bi-weekly service will automatically resume in the springtime (Don't worry, we'll let you know when it's time).
