FAQ's Of Rooney
Leading Arlington Heights Landscaping Contractor



- Yes, mowing can occur before a spring clean up. Early season mowing schedules fluctuate as the weather does. Have no fear, your spring cleaning will happen.

- Mowing: 27 appearances is the average here in Chicago. You may find that Rooney has shown up more (and in some cases less) than this exact number. This is typical based on Chicago weather patterns. We take pride in making your landscaping the best is can possibly look through the season. Sometimes, we opt to stop mowing for a week to let your landscaping revive due to extreme heat or rain.

- Why did I get billed in November when mowing stopped in October? With our new billing, we divide your payments into equal installments due at the first of the month. These start in April and run through Nov.

- Mowing days may vary at beginning of season. Typically by the middle of May the mowing schedule is consistent.
