At Mr. Tree and Lawn Service, we aim to help local homeowners take back their weekends and leave the tree and lawn care to us.

  • 85 million American households have private lawns.
  • 22 million homeowners outsource their lawn care to a professional lawn care company.
  • Americans spend approximately $30 million dollars a year on lawn and garden maintenance!
  • The average American homeowner spends 4 hours a week caring for their lawn.
  • Homeowners in cooler climates spend 150 hours per year on lawn care. Predictably, homeowners in warmer climates (like those of us here in Florida!) spend 208 hours per year on lawn care.
  • When you break those numbers down, it equals 5-8.5 days out of each year. You can probably think of a few things you’d rather do with those 8 and a half days than grass cutting and bush pruning, right?
  • The average size of an American lawn is 1/5th acre.

Whether you have a huge expanse of lawn to care and want to spend your Saturdays doing something other than endless laps on the lawnmower, or you have a mere postage stamp of a yard (and storage to match) and don’t want to bother with storing and maintaining the proper landscaping equipment, our Gainesville lawn service company is here to help. Just give us a call to set up a free estimate and say “Hello!” to relaxing Saturday mornings!
