Give yourself a break and let us tackle this chore for you. We service properties throughout Salt Lake County. We leave your yard looking great, with no visible clippings left behind.

When our customers use Cheronimo:

Creative Gift Option

Vacation

Injury

Home Transition

Mower Failure

Our focus is on being a trusted and reliable go-to partner, on-demand. That means we do not seek out full mowing season contracts with customers. There are plenty of do-it-yourselfers that need a break once in a while, get injured and need a short-term substitute, go on vacation and need a one-time fill-in, or move into a new home and need the prior home maintained until sold. We also help real estate agents maintain homes during that transition period.

Our customers love us not only because we are really good at making lawns look amazing, but because we can be counted on to be there when needed. Allow us to be there for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

(if your question is not addressed here, check the bottom of the home page)

  • Is a deposit required prior to the start of this service?  There are some unfortunate realities to modern society that we need to protect ourselves from, so we do require a pre-authorization on a credit or debit card of your choosing.  This is simply a hold on that account for a set amount, but no money is actually withdrawn. Upon completion of service, that hold will be removed and you'll pay using your preferred means (cash, venmo, debit, or credit).
    The hold amount equals the total cost of the service.  So, for example, if you book a 15-minute appointment, the hold amount would be $20 (Tier 1) or $35 (Tier 2).  For appointments where you do not intend to be home during the service, there are instances where we will waive this hold requirement and send a payment request after-the-fact, but you should expect this hold requirement to apply by default.
  • What does full service lawn mowing include?  We use an advanced eco-friendly EGO Power+ 21" battery-powered, low-impact, walk-behind lawn mower, and we bring along a string trimmer for those areas that a lawn mower can't reach. We'll of course also keep walkways and driveways tidy by clearing away stray clippings with our 480 CFM Blower. We leave no visible clippings behind. We either mulch to such a fine level that you won't even notice the clippings in the grass, or we bag the clippings and haul them away. We will also perform edge trimming as appropriate.  That adds time, and thus cost, so if your lawn has not been edged ever or for a long time we will only perform that if you ask us to. If edging has been done in the past, we will assume you would like for us to maintain all edges unless you state otherwise.
  • Do you offer recurring full service (weekly, bi-weekly, etc.)? In short, yes, but with a caveat. There is a segment of the market that wants or needs full service, but only on occasion and typically at unpredictable times. This market includes do-it-yourselfers that wouldn't mind a week off every now and then, want to go on vacation but don't want the grass to get out of control while gone, have a family or medical situation arise that prevents them from tending to the lawn temporarily, or any number of reasons for needing a temporary full service option. There are also real estate professionals that want to keep the yard looking nice for homes on the market and no longer occupied. These are the markets we specifically target with this service. We offer peace of mind to these individuals that they can turn to Cheronimo at any moment to get their yard taken care of and at an exceptional level of quality. This is kind of counterintuitive as recurring lawn mowing business is good, reliable money, and that is certainly tempting to pursue. But that comes at a cost, which is eventual capacity constraints and an inability to respond quickly to the markets mentioned above. Cheronimo is at its best when you can rely on us randomly and at a moment's notice. So that is what we are hyper-focused on staying true to. With that said, if you were to make a booking for full service lawn mowing every week throughout the mowing season (or however frequently), there's nothing we can do to stop you and we'd be more than happy to be your recurring hero. We just do not do any legwork on our end to establish a recurring schedule for customers.
  • What is "edge trimming" and is it necessary?  An "edge" is anywhere that grass stops and pavement or concrete begins. So, along driveways and sidewalks primarily. Edge trimming involves using an "edge trimmer", which is a specialized tool similar to a weed wacker but with a metal blade positioned vertically that digs down into the soil an inch or so. The edge trimmer is used along all edges to create a small but distinct separation between lawn and hard surfaces. It is by no means necessary, but we recommend it. Over time, your lawn will grow outward and over top of these edges. At the extreme end of allowing that to occur over decades, the grass will completely overtake the hard surface and you'd never know there was pavement there at one point.  Visual appeal is degraded, and poor visual appeal actually negatively impacts your home's value. So an easy way to boost the visual appeal of your yard, and thus your home's value, is to simply perform edge trimming.
  • How do I know how long it should take?  You can estimate this based on some averages.  This assumes normal mowing conditions though. If the grass is overgrown, mowing time increases considerably.  The average mowing pace for our customers is 125 sqft/minute. The average lot size for our customers is approximately 0.17 acres, or 7,405 sqft. Mowable area is typically far less than this because of the house foot print, driveway, walkways, garage, trees, bushes, trampolines, pools, etc. Average mowable area for our customers is 33% of the lot size, or 2,444 sqft. Take this assumed mowable area of 2,444 sqft and divide it by the average mowing rate of 125 sqft/min, and you get an estimated total mowing time of 19.5 minutes.  So....for you, a rough estimate could be calculated as follows:
              Lot size (sqft) [if you have it in acres, just multiply by 43,560 to convert to square feet)
              x mowable area percent
              = mowable area (sqft)
              Mowable area (sqft) / 125 = estimated mowing time
    Another method of estimating the total mowable area is to use Google Maps or Google Earth. Both have measuring features that allow you to measure the square footage of specific areas on the map.  Either way, give yourself some wiggle room initially until you've got a formal average mowing time established. And if you plan to do some weed wacking with our included String Trimmer and/or cleanup with our included Blower, you'll want to make sure to allow time for that as well.​
    Lastly, keep in mind that these estimates are based on one week elapsing since the last mowing. The more overgrown the yard, the longer it takes to mow, trim, edge, clean-up, etc. It's really hard to put a number to that, but a very rough estimate would be 15% longer for every additional week since the last mowing beyond one week. So, for example, if it would take 30 minutes if done weekly, it might take 35 minutes if done every other week.​
