Welcome (updated Spring 2024)

Please accept our thanks for considering MARLWOOD GRASS to perform your lawn care services for you. And welcome back to returning customers, some of which have been with us for the past 20 years!​​

We recognize that the appearance of your property is of utmost importance, from curb appeal in the front to lifestyle appeal all around. We  offer  all  the  services  you  will  need  to keep your lawn healthy and beautiful.



New stuff for 2024 and important reminders:
CHANGE   Last year, we relied on our friends and partners at TRUGREEN to assist us with many lawn care services. This year we are back to doing most of the services ourself as labour availability in Wasaga Beach has improved, so it may be our own truck and staff or it may be the TRUGREEN crew doing the work. As a result of this change, there are some price adjustments as we use different suppliers.
NEW   We have added the option to order a third “Broadleaf Weed” application this year (Summer, in addition to Spring and Fall). Also, we have added the concept of COMBO services. A COMBO service is where we will “group” two of the services together. For this year we will offer 4 COMBO programs:
                “WEED & FEED”  Spring
                “WEED & FEED”  Summer
                 “WEED & FEED”  Fall
                 “PLUG & PLANT”
The “WEED & FEED” program is a combination of the Broadleaf Weed and the Fertilization programs. The “PLUG & PLANT” program is a combination of the Aeration and the Over-seed programs. Aeration and Over-seeding will be done in September, subject to weather conditions.
The COMBO programs pricing will be effective once the 2 services in the program have been ordered and performed. The 2 services may or may not be done on the same day. This saving will be 20% of the combined price of the 2 services or $30, whichever is greater, and will be reflected on your monthly statement as an “adjustment” to the charged price.
3)   FOR NEW CUSTOMERS   Prices provided on the SERVICE ORDER FORM may be based on general information of lots in your area. Factors such as the actual lot size (in sq-ft), hills, culverts, trees, fence, gate access, patios, sheds, etc. (along with customer specific requests), may modify the final agreed prices.
4)   Some customers may want different services for the front part of their lot to those services they want for the back part of the lot. Maybe the back has more sand and the grass does not grow as well as the front, or there is more shade in the back and the grass grows faster. We can accommodate this, just let us know and we can arrange the services appropriately.
5)   Some customers request grass cutting every 2 weeks or every 3 weeks, instead of weekly. Some lawns in Wasaga Beach can, indeed, be left for 2 or 3 weeks between cuts (some up to 6 weeds), but others require cutting on a more frequent basis. If you have a decent lawn, the grass may be long and it will retain water (morning dew, sprinkler system or recent rain) and remain wet during the day. When this longer grass is cut, the mower deck and wheels will push the grass down rather than cutting it, and a lot of the grass will not get cut. On such occasions, your lawn will not look good, and will not look like it has been cut. If you see this happening, it is an indication that the lawn should be cut more frequently. Call us to change your service to more frequent cutting. If you call and ask that we come back and cut it again, this second cut will be billed.
FOR CLARIFICATION   For customers who use e-transfers to pay for services, please set up your e-transfers as follows:
David Coxe       E-mail: paymarlwood@gmail.com.
Please use this e-mail address, and put your customer code or service address in the message area of your e-transfer. A lot of customers do not put this information in the message area, and sometimes it is very difficult to know who sent the particular payment, and who’s account it should be credited to. Auto Deposit is set up on this e-mail address so you will not need a secret question or a password.
Please DO NOT send payments to any of our other e-mail addresses or to any of our phone numbers, and do not send correspondence e-mails to the paymarlwood e-mail address.
E-mail correspondence can be sent to marlwoodgrass@hotmail.com.
7)   Standard lawn cutting is either mulching or side discharge (not collection and bagging). When lawns are excessively wet, it can make a mess. Perhaps consider starting your sprinklers earlier in the morning and/or reducing the time on each zone. Hopefully, the lawn will dry by the time we arrive. Try to achieve a healthy lawn by monitoring your sprinkler system and not encourage excessive growth.
8)   In general, account statements will be sent out in the first 7 days of each calendar month,
but some exceptions may exist (e.g.: a low amount to be billed or delay in job confirmation sheets). Please send your payments in to arrive by the 25th of the current month, so we can have your account credited by month-end. If you cannot do this, please email, text or call to make other arrangements.
