Our Commitment to you

We value you as a customer, and want you to have a fantastic experience with The Greening of Detroit! The first step in that is letting you know exactly what to expect from us. Here is some key information about how we do what we do. We look forward to a great season of serving you.

  • Standard lawn care services includes: bi-weekly mowing and edging with clippings blown off of walkways. Other services are available upon request for additional charges.

  • Trimmings, leaves, and/or any other yard waste resulting from jobs done by the Greening are mulched back into the lawn. We do not bag grass clippings.

  • Lawns will typically be cut with a commercial zero turn mower, not a residential push mower. This may result in your cut appearing different than a push mower cut.

  • We will strive to service your lawn on the same day of each cycle, although the time of day cannot be guaranteed and sometimes the day will change.

  • We will service your lawn in moderate rain conditions as long as drainage and saturation issues allow. If rainfall is more than moderate, your lawn will be serviced on the next day. If more than 2 days elapse before conditions become favorable for mowing, you will be informed and service will be skipped until the following week.

  • Locked gates or dogs left outside may result in some or all of your lawn not getting serviced. If this results in only a partial cut of your lawn, you will still be charged for a full cut.

  • Please remove all toys, water hoses, and large debris from the lawn areas prior to service. The Greening is not responsible for any damaged or destroyed items left in the lawn area or for moving such items. Any items left in the yard on service day will be mowed around.

  • The Greening will make every effort to avoid damaging sprinkler heads. However, we are not responsible for damage to heads that are malfunctioning or not installed properly.

  • Grass taller than six inches will need to be cut twice, resulting in a fee of 30%. As with all work, pictures of the grass will be provided alongside invoice. Severely overgrown grass may incur additional equipment and fees. You’ll be notified before these cuts are performed.

  • Please make sure that all animal waste is cleaned up from the lawn areas prior to service. We reserve the right to charge a $35.00 equipment cleaning fee if animal waste is excessive and requires the cleaning of our equipment after services.

  • Any complaints regarding service must be submitted within 24 hours of the service time. After 24 hours, we will assume the service was completed satisfactorily. Please call 313-285-1251 or email We will provide before and after pictures of every job via invoices.

  • Invoices are sent out every two weeks, if an invoice is unpaid for an entire two-week cycle, the follow cycle’s work can not be performed. You’ll be notified to prevent service disruption.

  • For all work larger than typical mows, a deposit of 50% of the total amount is due before the project can begin. The remainder will be invoiced following completion of the work.

  • Failure to pay any balance that is owed in a timely manner will result in your account being turned over to a collection agency and your credit will be affected.

As a non-profit lawn care social enterprise, you’re not just getting great service from The Greening of Detroit, but you’ll also help to further our mission in our community. Questions? Concerns? We would love to talk with you! Please call or email Dave Anderson at 313-285-1251 or
