Mowing services are done weekly throughout the mowing season mid/late April - end of October. Start and end dates will be determined by weather. expect a 26-28 week season.
J Haught Lawn Care allows two free skip weeks throughout the mowing season for any reason. ie, lawn drought/renovation project ect... If requested to skip a third week throughout the mowing season, we will charge as normal in order for your property to remain on our service route.
Please water accordingly to avoid lawn drought.

Mowing service includes lawn mowing, trimming, edging and blowing off driveways, sidewalks and patios. Trimming is completed around beds of any kind, fences and trees. Trimming will not be performed inside mulch/rock beds or outside of lawn. Our equipment may hit a piece of material inside the beds possibly causing property damage or injury of the technician.. Edging is completed along sidewalks and driveways. Overgrown edging takes more time to complete and can result in a first time service fee of $10. The maximum lot size we mow is 7,000 sq. feet. We use small lawn mowers and cannot efficiently mow large lawns. We do not bag clippings. Clippings Are Organic Food
Standard Mowing Height
J Haught Lawn Care has standard mowing heights that are best for keeping your lawn healthy and happy.
• April-May 3in
• June-September 3.5in
• October 3in
• Final mow of the season 2.5in
J Haught lawn will mow lower by request but does not recommend lower than 3 inches especially in the heat of the summer (June-September) lower mowing request may be subject to an extra fee if extra clean up is needed.
If your lawn is more than 6 inches tall or has not been mowed in the last 10 days, there will be an additional $20.00 charge added to the normal mow price for the cut. This is an added time fee for the cut. It might need bagged/double cut or both & this takes extra time for the crew. Please note that after we cut an overgrown lawn it can take several weeks of mowing for it to look perfectly manicured.
Our mowers are not designed to mow lawns longer than 12 inches. If your grass exceeds our limit we will notify you after your first scheduled service and you will not be charged. After your lawn is shorter than 12” please let us know and we will resume weekly service.
Assigned Lawn Service Day
The Lawn Company works Monday thru Friday within designated areas each day of the week ensuring that each customer is assigned a specific service day throughout the season. We make every effort to maintain the same route every week. Once we are into full growing season and our customer base route has filled up, we will attempt to arrive about the same time each week. Several factors can affect our schedule, so we cannot guarantee an exact time or specific time range each service day.
A special visit fee of $20 will be applied to the service if J Haught Lawn care must service your property on a un-assigned day as your property will be off route adding drive time to the crew. Rain delays/reschedules on our end are not considered a special visit.
The Lawn Company works Monday thru Friday and does not take time off for holidays. If your service falls on a Monday which happens to be a holiday, we will still be there to complete the service as scheduled.
Items in the Yard
We ask all customers to please pick up all small items such as toys, hoses, pet waste, and other items in the yard before we arrive each week. Excessive items in the yard will result in a $10.00 clean up fee. The Lawn Company is not responsible for damage to exposed sprinkler lines, other lines, cable, dog fence lines and other items. Large items such as lawn furniture will be moved and mowed under. Trampolines and toys that can be climbed on will not be moved by J Haught Lawn for liability reasons.
Once you have been assigned a service day, please adjust your sprinkler schedule to not water the night before your scheduled service day as well as your service day. The dryer the lawn the better your lawn will look and cut.
Beat the heat, J Haught Lawn Care has a recommended watering schedule designed specifically for colorado lawns.
Rain and severe weather are inevitable. We do mow when it rains but only if it is drizzling. If, however, we are washed out due to a heavy rain, our schedule will be adjusted for all remaining services as quickly as possible. To avoid excessively long grass, we recommend allowing us to mow even when the lawn is wet. Typically, if it rains heavily throughout the day, we will be there the next day, weather permitting. If it rains any day in the week prior to your mow day, your mow day could be pushed forward or backward one day as we work to get back on schedule. Your patience and tolerance is greatly appreciated on rain delay weeks.
Please leave your pet inside on your scheduled service days. Please pick up all pet droppings, toys, large bones, large rocks, etc. If pet droppings are not picked up we reserve the right to charge a $20.00 equipment clean up fee per visit. If we arrive to your property and cannot mow the backyard due to a pet in the yard, a locked gate or too much pet droppings, you will still be charged. We are very careful about closing gates before we leave.
