not unless you want a bunch of short brown people running around your yard.

You can have your pick of one of the hundreds of lawn services out there. Just about every redneck has a mower and a pickup and considers themselves a "lawn service". Narrowing it down to reputable will be much more difficult.

Jones and Farthing Lawn and Landscape. Google their name. They have a website with contact info. They are also fully insured.

Go with Lawn Ranger, if you want to pay the employees hourly. The mexicans he has working for him get 10 an hour, and Chip, the owner, gets the rest. The best part is, is that he does minimal work. And he asks his employees to do things that he wouldn't do, because he's to scared. Make sure that if you hire him, you have top of the line insurance on your property, because his workers comp carrier will find a reason to deny a claim and blame someone else. Oh, and he charges outrageous rates.

All of those give good reason to look into Jones and Farthing's company. Both owners work right along side their employees and are very easy to work with if ever needing to file any sort of claim.

I worked for Lawn Ranger, and he screwed me over. He told me to meet him the next morning at his house, which was typical.I get injured while working for him. So, he says that I wasn't working within the course and scope of my employment. And NOW, the coward won't even talk to me. So, it's my fault that he didn't know that his workers comp ins. wouldn't cover me if I was working around his house. That says something else about him. He can't even do his own house work. He has someone else do it for him. But remember people. Say one of his guys falls in a hole on your property. Who covers that? Workers comp, but then it will get denied and the employee will probably go after your homeowners insurance. Just think about that. Always as a laborer, or contractor, if they are licensed, insured, and if they have workers comp. Then ask if all employees are working within the course and scope of employment.

I've been in the business for 8 years. I'm totally booked and can't take on anymore work luckily. I'm not one of those that takes every job then do a crappy job because there's not enough time. I would certainly NOT use the Lawn Ranger. I've picked up a few of his former clients and they have nothing good to say about him. Not going to recommend anyone because I don't want to be accused of being that person. There's a lot of good guys out there that do good work. Not everybody is a redneck or Spanish.

What are the cons about Lawn Ranger? I've seen high rates and insurance issues that have already been mentioned.

I've heard about him treating his employees poorly. One person told me about him yelling at one of his workers. Pretty poor to do that at someone else's house. At least wait till you leave for that. Another person told me he charged a lot for "extras" like picking up debris when mowing. I expect to pick up some things while mowing an would never charge for that. It's understandable to charge more after a storm for cleaning up. He also parks his truck and trailer in some bad spots making it dangerous to go around. I'm not saying he does poor work, he seems to have a lot of accounts, but I've just heard some not so nice things about the guy. Maybe he has short man's complex??:)

So, Mr. Lawn Ranger does some dumb shit. He cleans gutters. Well, he holds the ladder while other people clean the gutters. Anyways, he and his employee were cleaning a building off of State Farm Road. The ladder he rented from Farmers was about 2 feet too short. So, he puts it in the back of a utility trailer hooked up to his four wheeler to elevate the ladder about 18 inches or so. This is a three story building we're talking about here. So, it would take a very long time to put the ladder up, clean a section of gutters, and then take the ladder down to move it, and do it all over again. Mr. Lawn Ranger has the brilliant idea of having his employee stand at the top of the ladder, about 40 feet up, while he pulls the trailer with his four wheeler to save time. WTF? Talk about not caring about the health and welfare of your employees.

That Lawn Ranger is pretty laid back. All he does is walks around with a blower on his back while the mexicans do all of the work. Not a bad gig!

Go with Jones and Farthing. They do my lawn and do a great job! They have a schedule and stick to it so I never wonder when my grass will be mowed. I can also trust them to actually mow my grass and not fib about it when I am out of state for a month. I have ran into issues before with other companies/lawn maintance, where we are out of town and the guys know it so they billed me and never cut my grass. Very upsetting!
