Thank you Benny and your assistant sooo much! The yard looks terrific! I'm extremely pleased that you were able to mow and edge before the storm hits. It makes a huge difference. Be safe with the coming storm and I'll be praying for y'all's safety.

This was our first time using LawnStarter, and we were a little dubious. Turns out it was an awesome idea! We didn't even have to be home, and Abraham did a great job. The edging looks terrific. Thanks Abraham, we look forward to our next mow!

I came home today as was delighted to find that Jose came while I was at work and cut and trimmed my lawn. Even though I have not spoken with Jose since the season ended last October he remembered the details of how to do my lawn just the way I like it. He makes my lawncare worries disappear. Thank you Jose

The lawn came out great. Last week he made sure to cut it short which I'm sure made his job somewhat easier this week as the grass didnt grow as fast which my wife and I are happy about as it doesn't look like a jungle plus because its now shorter its easier to maintaine and keep it short. Great job. Thank you

As always, he does a great job! I call him the Lawn Ninja because he's fast and gets in/out in a jiffy. Thanks for all you do, my family and I appreciate you. Also, you left before I could give you your Christmas gift. Please let me know if you'll be around the neighborhood to pick it up. It's not urgent, just a small token of gratitude.

He did great! Only thing is I wish he would have trimmed the palm bush that is extending into the walkway. He did, however, say he would do it next week! He was very polite and professional. Glad we found your service.

Roberto is great. Our lawn hasn't looked so good in a long time. He changed all the trash leaves out of every nook and cranny.
