Default Hawkins - Looking for reliable and reasonable Lawn Care service suggestions.

I have a service that seems to show up at random time often 2-3 weeks apart during the growing season.... My lawn does not grow excessively so the property looks ok, but at my other property in Fenny (gardener doesn't go to Hawkins)... my service comes religiously every Friday keeping things looking just great.

I would much appreciate any recommendations for lawn care servicing Hawkins. We have a small Courtside Villa with a tiny front lawn on one side, and an equally small back yard area, that I may wind up rocking or astro turfing if I can't find someone.

Thank you.

Good luck on finding reliable lawn care, as a whole they are perhaps the worst group of service providers/contractors in the entire Villages. Yes, there are some exceptions and some people have had good luck, but overall they deserve a D- when it comes to reliability and quality of work.

I've heard numerous complaints from residents in Hawkins -- each disappointed with a different lawn care company. Several are considering switching to taking care of their own lawns.

I've not heard someone say they love their lawn service.

We use Chads and have been using them for 3 years. Good service and reasonable($60.00 per month). Somewhat surprised that my rate has no gone up and do beleive that there is too much competition to warrant raising their rates.

We have used deans on and off since 2010. Then we would try “the guy” that everyone used on our block, that was a better deal.

The new company always worked out for a while and then just disappeared in the night. Sometimes saving money is just not worth it we always go back to Dean’s, big company, always come every week, you never have to worry about them disappearing. Not the cheapest but reliable

Dean's though doesn't do lawn care alone. They have pest control service also in combo. So 60 a month plus termite and general pest extra.
