Since our founding in 1998, Lawn Butler has prided itself on ethical business practices. All workers are paid with a payroll check, including appropriate withholdings for income taxes, Social Security taxes, and Medicare taxes. Lawn Butler pays worker’s compensation insurance and unemployment insurance. We provide and require all employees to wear a uniform. We carry a two million dollar business liability insurance and are a registered member of the Professional Landcare Network. Our company is debt free and incredibly stable. We have over 25 employees. We are a business that operates ethically and strives to portray a business that cares about its employees as much as its customers, because without either, we would not be in business. If you cant trust the butler than who can you trust?...

Excellent in every way. This was a difficult job - removing an existing retaining wall and rebuilding it with stone blocks in a long, narrow area behind our house. Included the installation of wall lights and steps from lower to upper yard. Lawn Butler provided the required skill at a reasonable cost with great customer service. They also do a great job maintaining out lawn!

6/5 & 6/18/2019 The bedding maintenance crew, Amy and her helpers, are outstanding! Amy is careful to listen and implement my requests. She is great at troubleshooting issues as well. I have a butterfly garden and extensive complicated perennial beds. Amy and her helpers perpetually go above and beyond in their work to keep the beds looking their best. Well worth the $30 each for each visit. 6/20/2019 - The mulching crew did an excellent job on my yard! The back beds are difficult to access. The crew hauled individual wheel barrow loads to all the areas and raked out the mulch being careful to avoid smothering my perennials. It made the entire yard beautiful. $508 for a solid layer of mulch installed on extensive flower beds. I found the price reasonable. I paid close to that amount when I had mulch delivered and installed it myself.

When they blow in mulch, it looks better than most mulch jobs. It is hard to get them to promise to blow it in. The time before, they showed up with a crew who spread it with the usual tools. They worked hard, but didn’t use as much mulch and it didn’t look as good.

I’ve hired several lawn services over the years to mulch the extensive landscape/flower beds at my home and I’ve never been happy with the work. Every time it seems there were issues causing my dissatisfaction- the mulch is laid too thick or too thin, not placed well under the plants, ground cover often smothered, plants damaged, edges messy, etc. Many times I’ve just opted to do it myself so that it’s done well despite the hard work and use of time. But this time, we called Lawn Butler. WOW! They did very impressive work!! They came just a few days after contacted, arrived promptly, worked quickly, and did a beautiful job on the mulch!! The mulch is laid evenly, nicely placed under the plants, care taken not to smother out ground cover, and bed edges perfectly rounded and groomed away from grass edge. Then when they finished, they used a blower to clean up any mulch dropped on walkways and drive. AND, they took a garden hose and gently sprayed the gardens with water to rinse any residual mulch off the flowers and bush leaves. It looks immaculate!! Absolutely the best mulching work I’ve ever seen!! I HIGHLY recommend Lawn Butler and will always call them for my mulching in the future.

7/14 @ 9:41 a.m. Spoke with Kelly Corum on the phone and scheduled a consultation for 7/18 at 10 a.m. 7/18 @ 9:55 a.m. Kelly arrived. We walked the property, discussed a gameplan, and went over options. Left at 10:43 a.m. Very courteous, honest, professional, and timely. Knowledgeable about the issues at hand, and, furthermore, he didn't blab about things he is not well-versed in. Rather, he is actually sending another employee with a different specialty sometime next week to discuss more irrigation related issues. Very pleased with the humility and dedication to provide the best service possible. All of this at no charge. Final thoughts: A+

They were great in every way. They were very responsive, and they helped plan everything with us. Everything looks beautiful. When there was area's where they did damage to the grass during the installation they even replanted with new grass.

They were very good. There were no problems at all. They did a very good job. They were always on time and did it when they said would do it. They kept it very clean and neat. We are not actually using them anymore because we sold our lot. We would use them again in the future if need be.

I've been using them for about a year and now I'm about to try somebody new. I spent about $250 a month. They're kind of expensive and I think for the quality of what they do it's not worth it. They have great customer service, when you call them they tell you great things, but the poeple who come out are nothing like the people you talk to on the phone.

I use Lawn Butler every 2 weeks for my basic lawn care; fertilization, mowing and weed control.

Service Provider Response

As I stated in our previous phone conversation, I am sorry you were not satisfied with our services. We discussed how you were surprised at charges on your bill for work you asked us to perform that was outside of your contract. Since we did not convey that the work would incur additional charges to you, we removed those charges after you brought it to our attention. We take enormous pride in building a strong team with great people who we train well. The overwhelming majority of the feedback we receive on our team is extremely positive. We wish you well.

Our most recent project was completed on time and on budget.

Description of Work
I have used the Lawn Butler and Mulch Butler for over ten years and have found the service to be very reputable and reliable. They have done many landscaping projects for us and most recently completed work on an elevated garden bed that we can't wait to plant. They offer a year round service that we have found to be very useful. I recommend the Lawn Butler without reservation!

I started using Lawn Butler about a year ago when I noticed how consistently they serviced my neighbors yard so I asked them for a quote in hopes of consolidating 2 other services I was using for weed control and for irrigation. Their prices were right in line with competitors. The owner was super responsive and emailed me a quote within the day of what each service broke out to so I could pick and choose what worked for me. They were very flexible and have remained so since I don't like having big ticket items like Mulch or seeding automatically put on my bill. I can do things like that at my discretion. I have been very pleased with my service. I always appreciate their quick response time since I've found competitors lacking in that area.

They were very good. They did great work and they were punctual. I pay them $75 to come out once a month. I recently paid them about $1,000 to come out and clean up the mess from last year. They spent three days; it was heavy labor. They removed the weeds, cleaned the edging and the mulch bed. There was a massive undergrowth that had developed. They did a good job. I do not think they were overpriced. The only problem I have is that they do not give me an exact date when they will show up. They come out after a couple of weeks once they come out once. I would use them again in the future.
