Your Most frequent Questions, Answered.

How much does a weed pulling service cost?

Our weed pulling service is performed at an hourly rate plus the cost of debris, but of course, pricing for your request is based on the estimated amount of time that will take our team to complete your job. Things that will affect the estimated amount of time include property size, property layout, current landscaping condition, the complexity of the landscaping, and your requested scope of work. If you would like a flat rate quote, we are able to provide that after one of our experts has reviewed your property’s current condition. Give our office a call to schedule your weed pulling or get more information on getting a flat rate quote!

Can I work outside with the crew?

We ask that when you schedule our services, that you let us do the work for you. You are welcome to be home and explain what you would like done to the crew, but working too close to the crew can actually slow down the productiveness and pose a safety risk near our machinery and equipment.

Can I be home to show the crew what I want to be done?

While it is not necessary, you are welcome to stay home the day the crew is on your property. If your job has specific details and areas that you would like taken care of, those details need to be noted with the office prior to scheduling the work so that a supervisor can oversee that your requests are fulfilled. Nevertheless, we encourage you to send photos or schedule a supervisor to walk the property with you to allow for the crew to work as efficiently as they can while at your property.

What is the average cost for a weed pulling service?

Every home is different. You can expect a base charge, depending on your bed size – just like vacuuming, no matter how much or little debris is on the floor there is still time spent to go over the entire area. There is a minimum amount of time it takes our crew to walk your property and find any weed infested areas that need attention. The more weeds they find, the more time it will take, and therefore will increase the cost of service. You can expect to see an increase in your weed pulling costs during rainy and warm seasons and a drop off during the dry and colder temperatures, but it really depends on how many weeds are on your property at the time of services and how large your property is.

I have certain plants I don’t want to be touched, what should I do?

For special requests. please contact our office to make a note on your account. We have many ways we can indicate to our crews that you have certain plants you would not like our crews to touch. One of these ways includes you sending in photos that the office can attach to your job showing those specific plants. Another way is by marking the plants prior to service with a ribbon. Finally, if needed we can schedule a supervisor to walk the property beforehand so that he/she is able to communicate with the crew on the day of your scheduled service.

Can the crew pull the weeds while they are here mowing?

We have separate crews that specialize in different services that are done on different days with different tools and equipment. It is possible that you could have your weeds pulled on the day you get mowed as well, but it is not guaranteed those services will be performed on the same day. You could also sign up for one of our landscape maintenance packages, which includes routine weed pulling and mowing.

Is it a weed in my mulch bed?

The definition of a weed is any unwanted plant or flower that has grown. Our crews carry over 20 years experience and are very knowledgeable in the world of weed vs. flower/perennial. Sometimes it can be very difficult to tell because a typically desirable plant can germinate randomly in an area that was not intentional. Some perennials can also look very much like weeds. In situations where the crew is uncertain, they will leave that plant untouched unless told otherwise. The simplest test to determine if a plant is a weed is if the owner of the property asks him/herself is this a desirable plant in a desirable location. If the answer is no, it is considered a weed.

Can I schedule recurring weed pulling services?

Of course! We highly recommend this throughout the season, especially in the Spring, when the weeds are germinating and growing at a fast rate. Our reoccurring weed pulling services are available with any of our landscape maintenance packages.

Can I have you just do the service once?

Yes, we do offer one-time weed pulling services, however, weed seeds are always spreading throughout neighborhoods, and can sprout anytime throughout the season. Our landscape maintenance packages included a seasonal weed pulling program to take care of your weed problem the entire year.

Do you hand pull weeds or do you use chemicals?

Weeds larger than 4 inches in size are pulled out or dug out by hand. We typically use a non-selective herbicide to take care of smaller weeds which are too tedious and time-consuming to do by hand.

How long can I expect my property to remain weed free after service?

Although our crews may fully remove all of the weeds on your property, mother nature is always spreading new weed seeds which may germinate within two weeks.

Will you notify ahead of time before my service?

Some services are available for automatic email notifications to inform you when your home is on an upcoming route. Please ask our office how to sign up for service notifications.

Will your crew be sure to close my fence gate?

Yes, after your services we train our crews to walk the property and close any gate we opened during the service.

How do I pay my bill?

For your convenience, when you sign up, you will put a credit card on your account file. Any service we perform will be auto-charged to your card. You are also welcome to call or log in to your online portal to update any payment information.
