You have just received a code enforcement notice from your city, and you need a code enforcement mowing company immediately. What do you look for as you contact acreage mowing companies?
We are here to walk you through the process. We are Keith’s Tractor Mowing, a trusted name in code enforcement mowing in the Fort Worth area. Call us if you have questions.
What does code enforcement mowing mean?
All cities have code enforcement regulations for properties owned in that city. One such code might be that grass cannot be any higher than two feet; another code might read that blackberries are not allowed in specific areas on vacant properties. Whatever the code is, it is up to the property owner to make sure that code is followed.
The same is true in many HOAs, or Home Owners Associations i.e. housing developments. Most modern housing developments have codes which are related to the upkeep of individual properties. Some codes are fairly lenient. Some are quite strict. Again, as a property owner, it is up to you to comply with these regulations and codes.
So how do you choose a code enforcement mowing company?
Our first recommendation when dealing with a city’s code enforcement regulations is to ask the city department in charge of the regulation. They deal with acreage mowing companies daily, and you better believe they have their “favorites.” They know who has done a good job in the past, and they know who has done a poor job. They will be quite happy to give recommendations or, if they are reluctant to appear to be choosing favorites, they will at the very least give you a list of companies they have worked with. You can start with that list.
From there you ask the businesses and/or homeowners for their recommendations. Who have they worked with in the past? Did they quote you a fair price? Did they follow through with quality work? We promise you, within the span of a half hour, you will have some very specific recommendations and/or warnings about acreage mowing services available.
One last thing to check on
One final word of warning: check to make sure that the mowing service, or brush mowing services, you hire has liability insurance. This is for your protection and for the protection of your property and possessions. Most code enforcement mowing is done using tractors and other large pieces of machinery. It is quite easy for a mishap to occur, and if that does happen you want to make sure the mowing company can repay you. Liability insurance will assure you that you are protected. At Keith’s Tractor Mowing, we carry a $1,000,000 liability insurance to cover us, and our customers, should a mishap occur. We consider that amount the industry standard and you should as well.
