First class services at reasonable prices. First Class is a lawn, yard, and home care service company designed to help you get jobs done around your home to free up your time and schedule. Formerly First Class Lawns and Ricks Lawn Services, it is a part-time summer business run by Tony, who has been a full-time educator since 2011. Beginning in 2015, Tony began doing summer lawn care services in North Alabama while not teaching full-time. He enjoyed this work, and also found occasional work in assembling pre-designed structures such as gazebos and children's play sets (See images/reviews). In 2021, Tony relocated to West Lafayette, Indiana for a job to teach Professional Writing at Purdue. As he did in Alabama, Tony is interested in connecting with people in his new home in Indiana and finding out how he can be of service to his neighbors. First Class is a customer-focused small business. Tony personally communicates with all customers and handles scheduling. Tony's values include open communication, responsiveness, timeliness, and doing excellent work. Please reach out to Tony at First Class Services today!

Tony was very friendly and easy to work with. Him and his daughter worked hard and were very thoughtful on making the swing set safe. My little girl didn't ene know they were there which was a big help in keeping it a surprise. I would recommend and use his service again.

Tony and his help came out to assembly a 12' X 14' Screen house that I had purchased from Costco. They arrived on time and Tony was very courteous. The job took a little longer than estimated, but Tony came back the next morning to finish the job. He honored is initial quote, but was willing to give him some extra since it was a big job that I was not willing to do myself. We are very happy with the way the screen house turned out. Tony was outstanding. I would highly recommend.

I contacted First Class Lawns an approximately 8:00 am. He stated that he would arrive at 10:00 am the same morning. He arrived at exactly 10:00. He worked for approximately three hours and charged what he quoted. It worked very well.

Details: Residential • One time only • Medium (1,000 - 5,000 sq ft) • Standard grass (under 6 inches) • Front yard/lawn • Back yard/lawn • Side yard/lawn • No - Mulching is fine • No, I don't need to be there

First Class Lawns did a great job on my mulching job. They were reasonable and very professional in their work. I will use them again in the future.

Total yard care, cutting, edging, trimming, mulching, seeding/sodding. Tony is reliable, dependable, and communicates exceptionally well. I feel that he cares for our yard like it was his.
