A good lawn care service?

overgrown grassC. emails:

I am looking for a reliable lawn care service/individual in the area around Colonie Center. Basic mowing and fall cleanup. Can anyone suggest someone? Thank you for your help.

It sounds like C. isn't looking for stuff like fertilizing or weed control -- just mowing, basically. It seems like there are a bunch of services out there that do this -- both companies and single-person operations.

So, got a suggestion for C.? Please share! And we very much appreciate it when you include a sentence or two about why you're suggesting that company or person.

You should get some goats. Or rent some goats. You'll definitely need some goats.

Rob Bickford, Bickford Landscaping. We've used him for 2 years now, he does spring and fall cleanup and other landscaping, as well as weekly mowing. http://www.facebook.com/BickfordLandscapingLLC or 620-MOWS

I use Todd Below for both my lawn mowing and snow removal. He is reliable, affordable and does the job well. I highly recommend him. I found him because my neighbors in Albany use him and I was impressed by his work. You couldn't go wrong with him.

If you are over 55 years old, The Colonie Umbrella program may be able to help.
Do a Google search on Colonie Umbrella.

Where would one rent goats in the area?

No residential service tho - they may know of a goat owner near you perhaps.
