Grounds Maintenance

What is Grounds Maintenance?

Landscaping, lot mowing, and pruning are a few of the duties of grounds maintenance crews. Grounds maintenance focuses on keeping a facility’s outdoor areas neat and presentable. The end result is both aesthetic and practical. By improving the appearance of lawns and landscaping features, regular grounds maintenance preserves property value.

Grounds maintenance can be on a business-by-business basis, one building, or it can be a business park, a shopping mall, an airport, or some other larger commercial mowing services.

That’s where we come in, on the larger jobs, the acreage mowing, large lot mowing, that sort of thing. We are Keith’s Tractor Mowing, a trusted name in the Fort Worth area. Call us for more information about grounds maintenance, pipeline mowing, HOA upkeep, pasture mowing, and other commercial lawn service activities.

What can you expect to pay for good grounds maintenance?

Prices fluctuate all over the pricing spectrum.  On average, just to give you an idea, larger mowing jobs will cost about $75 per hour, but that really is a very rough estimate. There is no governing body with commercial mowing services. Prices are determined and maintained by the Laws of Supply and Demand. What the customer will pay is what the customer will pay, that sort of thing.  There are mowing businesses to be found which will work for a very low fee; there are those which will only work for top dollar; and there are many which fall in-between those two extremes.

Where do you find quality grounds maintenance?

Our best suggestion is to ask around for recommendations.  Good commercial mowing companies quickly build a reputation for good work at a fair price.  Local businesses will be more than happy to share information with you.  Ask at local colleges, local hospitals, local shopping malls; ask those managers who does their grounds maintenance.

You can also ask the Better Business Bureau for recommendations, or at least for a list of mowing companies who have had complaints issued against them. At least that way you can find out who not to contract with.

What to expect from a good grounds maintenance crew

You can expect them to be unobtrusive. You can expect them to be quick, to conduct their business efficiently, with as little disruption as possible.  The good grounds maintenance companies are quite accustomed to providing their services in a work environment; they realize that the less noise they make, the better for the customer. They realize that traffic must be allowed to flow freely for the convenience of customers.  And they carry general liability insurance, to protect their customers, because they realize that heavy machinery can cause problems, even when operated by the pros.
