Lawn Maintenance - includes mowing, trimming, edging (as needed), and cleanup. We do weekly/as needed service and we service all lawns according to standard Michigan Turf Management practices and procedure. We can invoice you on a monthly basis based on the sum of services(Net 30) or you can sign up for a one time seasonal payment(best value). Average city 1/4 acre lots are $35 - $45 per service and our maintenance quotes are about 20% LESS than industry standard. We only use the LIGHTEST equipment necessary for efficient labor/cost effective service AND we also have the larger riding commercial mowers for larger properties . Call for your free estimate!

Spring/fall/storm cleanups - we clean up the mess, massive or minor, and haul it away for a hassle-free transition after a long winter/summer or a bad storm! We pride ourselves providing extremely DETAILED cleanups and/or the clients personal preferences. Cleanups may include leaf removal, brush hauling, tree trimming, ornamental plant/shrub pruning, mulching, dead-heading, gutter cleaning, power washing, and/or any outdoor "cleaning" our clients may requests!

Snow Removal - Driveways, parking lots, or any area's you need cleared. We also offer shoveling service for walkways or any area's not accessible to larger equipment. We even shovel off "Pet Paths" so your pet can use the restroom without falling through the snow! De-icing servies includes both rock salt and Calcium Chloride to protect turf area's from degradation.

Powerwashing - We powerwash decks, patios, or the entire house! Sometimes, all you need is a good cleaning to beautify your home!

Pruning/weeding - Save the backache, and let us take on the tough task. We also provide weed prevention.

Lawn rolling/dethatching/aeration - get scheduled in the spring or fall. Rolling is done with either a water-filled roller or a compact asphalt roller for those tougher lawns.

Gutter/eavestrough cleaning - prevent or cure that basement-flooding problem with seasonal cleanings! We also do catch basins to hide those ugly-dented downspouts for a clean look and washout prevention.

Mulching - cost is based on per cubic yard installed. We can bring you many samples, from wood chips to regular hardwood bark, dyed bark, or any of the exotic trends available today!

Delivery of all landscape material - just call in your order, and we will bring the "do-it-yourselfer" materials to get the job done right! We will even estimate your material need for free!

Project planning - Main Lawn and Landscape takes everything into account in planning your landscape, from drainage and erosion prevention through future plant variety maturation effects. We take the time to bring your vision to life with practical reasoning and budget awareness.

Many of our customers have us divide their project into "phases", so they can gradually build their landscape without the shock to the checkbook which is inherent in multi-faceted projects.

Any one of our customers would agree that we make the project planning as painless and as inclusive as possible. We spend the extra time and LISTEN to your specific vision, working WITH you from the first free estimate through the final walkthrough.

Seasonal/year-round agreements - we appreciate your business, and we are able to provide many discounts on complete outdoor service agreements. Main Lawn and Landscape is one company that you can call for everything mother nature throws your way here in Michigan.

I am a public school employee, providing snow removal, lawn care, and landscape services. I have been fingerprinted and criminal history-checked for the school system. I am honest and known in my community. I encourage you to ask for references, as we have many happy clients!

Current licenses and insurance ($2,000,000 coverage) documentation are available upon request; we are often less costly than the big companies with one-to-one service atmosphere. I am the one who will do your estimate, write our contract, and work on your property. We have many local references available upon request that are often in your neighborhood!

Please leave your name, phone number, address, email, and services required if you would like a free estimate. Contact me via email or phone for a same-day service. Anything from a little yard work to total property maintenance, I will beat any written estimate. Thank you for your consideration.

    I wound up hiring another yard professional this time around but Ted was extremely quick to respond with a quote for us and was very courteous in his communications. I will be keeping him in mind if I have a job in the future with more than just leaf raking.

  • 5/5 stars October 27, 2014

    I used Main Landscaping and Lawncare for gutter cleaning. Ted was true to his word and easy to get ahold of. Once the project was scheduled Ted came in time and completed the task quickly. I would use Main Landscaping and Lawncare again.

    I placed a call to them for snow removal service. No one returned my call. They must not need the business, a simple call back would of been nice. I try to keep business local but not this time . I won't ever be calling them back for anything! Very unprofessional!

  • 2/5 stars August 30, 2013

    I wish I could give them a better rating because my interactions with Ted have been pleasant - he seems like a nice guy who cares about his work. That being said, his crews damaged my property when providing services on three separate situations. One was particularly upsetting. On the first mowing, the crew mowed over a rosebush that had VERY significant meaning to my wife (it was one of the last gifts her now deceased mother gave her before she died). When I told Ted, he was very understanding and promised a replacement by the end of the week. Two months later and I am still waiting for the rosebush. Each time they came out to mow, they continued to mow over the rose bush every time they came out. Each time they did that it The mowing was inconsistent. A few times their work was outstanding; however, most of the time I could have done better work. They often left significant portions of the lawn unmowed in a rush to get their work done. When I called to complain, Ted came out immediately, brought his crew, and made them do their job (and rightfully chewed them out). They did good work the next week, but their quality quickly diminished throughout the summer. They did not consistently provide the 10 services promised at each mowing (mind you, not all of them applied to my situation so I, obviously, didn't expect those to be done). Overall, I was not happy with the service. Ted, however, was great and cared....his crews on the other hand..... If not for Ted's caring I would have given them a lower rating.

    Ted and his crew have taken care of my yard, including mowing, triming, tree pruning, and anything else I ask them to do. I have used their services since 2010. The crew is professional and friendly. I really appreciate that they ask me if I need anything else done when they are all done.
    As for snow removal, they are on top of it! I was coming home from vacation in a blizzard, and was worried about being able to get into my driveway. As I was gone, I had totally forgot to call and schedule them. I was pleasantly surprised to see my drive and walk all cleared out!
    They truly know the meaning of customer service. I highly reccomend them to everyone!

  • 5/5 stars May 2, 2013

    Main Lawn and Landscape does an amazing job! I love the way my yard looks! They are friendly, professional, and excellent at what they do!

  • 1/5 stars March 18, 2013

    Ted made an appointment with me to discuss my lawn and landscaping and to provide me with a quote. He contacted me promptly after being connected via this site, but did not show up at the designated time, did not call, and did not answer or return my calls the day of the appointment. Very disappointing.

    Ted M. from Main Lawn and Landscape LLC replied to this review on March 21, 2013:

    Unfortunately the worst imaginable tragedy kept me from making my appointment. I am a Varsity coach at Mason High School and hours before my appointment one of our student/athletes passed away. In my shock and answering the other calls of many greatly affected by this horrible tragedy, I completely forgot to call and cancel my appointment, and I take full responsibility. Barring this kind of tragedy, I would never miss an opportunity to meet with a local homeowner and I am very embarrassed as I should have at least called. I will make every effort to offer my sincere apology and either discounted services or suggest another local competitor who would provide adequate service. Again, I take full responsibility and urge any potential clients to try and understand the horrible circumstances and forgive my error, I should have called sooner. Thank you for the opportunity to explain myself, and please contact me with any opportunities where we can beautify your home or business. Ted Main-Owner/Operator;Main Lawn and Landscape; LLC.

    Ted Main owner of Main Lawn and Landscape is a CLASS ACT!! He works within your budget and listens to your needs and concerns. Promptly returns phone calls and goes above and beyond for his customers (something sorely lacking in today's world). My parents and I both use Main Lawn and Landscape for both mowing and landscaping. We are very pleased with his work!!!!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. The services most commonly requested are; Ongoing Lawn Maintenance (mowing, trimming, edging, clipping cleanup), Spring/Fall Cleanups (including pruning, mulching, fertilization, rolling/aerating turf, and debris removal), and material installations (Patio's/retaining walls/walkways, tree's/shrubs/plants, irrigation systems, NDS drainage solutions, or any product or structure outdoors).
Ongoing lawn maintenance includes weekly/as needed services mowing all turf area's, and trimming any area inaccessible to the mowers providing a consistent and freshly manicured appearance. We also edge all the borders between the turf area's and any hard surfaces, and meticulously clean the entire service area every service. As a lawn maintenance client you will receive a 10 point detailed description/standard operating practices and procedures provided by MLL every service.
Spring/Fall cleanups always have a tremendous effect on the look and feel of the property after service. After a long winter or the end of the season in the fall, we offer outdoor cleaning ranging from basic leaf removal through total property improvement involving; all unwanted debris removal, weeding, pruning, tree trimming, mulching, edge re-animation, POWER-WASHING, lawn care (rolling/aeration/de-thatching), eaves trough/down-spout cleanings, outdoor furniture detailing, pet waste removal, turf repair (seeding), and even charcoal disposal and grill cleaning. We can handle any size property and offer just a few services through many detailed tasks. Spring/Fall cleanups always have a tremendously positive effect on the property owners and the neighbors, especially the more services we are enabled to provide.
Our installations always add value to our clients property and every MLL technician is trained to use the proper practices and procedures for installation. Our hardscapes including patio's, walkways, and retaining walls are guaranteed for life. We can build anything you can dream of using a variety of materials including block, natural stone, treated lumber, or any outdoor construction product available today. All of our plants/shrubs/tree's are properly installed according to the correct sun/shade and zone specifications. Any organic installation includes a one year limited warranty on viability, as long as you water and regularly maintain your plant, we will replace it at no additional cost to you for up to one year after installation if it fails to progress. Please visit our website for pictures of our local work and get some idea's for your personal landscape. Please feel free to contact us at any time with any questions you may have about our services, products, or installations.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. We offer competitive rates, although we are often not the lowest bidder. We accept work that we are confident that we can deliver the absolute best service, using the highest professional standards. Our rates coincide with our overhead of operating a safe and ethical business including; experienced technicians paid a decent living wage, the proper insurances and licenses required (including Workman's Comp and General Liability), and all our drivers must have a minimum of a Chauffeur's License (and a clean driving record), always maintaining safe and responsive equipment and vehicles, the highest quality materials, and always continuing education for the latest environmentally friendly products, practices/procedures. Once we have thoroughly considered every aspect of your project or service, we will offer you the best rates that will enable the highest quality services and installations available. We will always advise you on any money saving techniques or alternative methods and materials if available and applicable. Senior, Military, Law Enforcement, Fire, and EMS DISCOUNTS are available for your consideration. In short, I would always advise any homeowner or business to obtain at least 3 (Three) estimates for any service or project and then compare quotes, warranties, length of operation, look at local examples of their work, and check all their references.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. Our work stands out from others because we love what we do. When you honestly love what you do, even the hardest of days (physically or mentally) still end up being great days and just another progression becoming the best we can be. Unfortunately this profession is plagued with incompetence and sometimes those who posture professionally and just want to make quick money. They are easy to spot, here one year and gone the next. We operate based on the principle that money is what should ENABLE you to provide the best product, and money shouldn't be the REWARD, but a RESOURCE used for consistent quality. Our team members go the extra mile for our loyal clients, we consider and employ great people before we consider the person who makes us the most money. I believe in plain speaking and up front conversations fully disclosing every aspect of a project or service. If you really want to find out, either ask us for one of our references or just give me a call. Detail, Passion, and Integrity is what stands out the most differentiating MLL from other services companies. We value our legitimate competition, and we humbly appreciate any challenge. We've "talked the talk" please let us "walk the walk" and choose MLL for any landscape service or installation.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. I wish that new customers knew that although my chosen profession doesn't necessarily require a degree or even licensing, that me and everyone who works for MLL are college educated and have extensive knowledge about Michigan lawn and landscape services and installations. This AND we are licensed and certified AND have extensive practical knowledge. I wish that new clients didnt have to be so skeptical about our abilities, but I totally understand why they are after seeing some of the horrible business practices of some of these business's. The reverse is true as well, we value our competition and some business's are really really great to compete with and they make us even better.
We want our clients to know how much PRIDE we have in our work, and how much we take their input to heart. From the simplest job to the largest multi-faceted life consuming projects, we challenge ourselves every day to win the hearts of our clients. All of that really matters to all of us, from the new hire through our owner, we want you to think of us as a valuable asset.
