In 1989, two guys with an old push mower mowed their first lawn together and Northwest Lawn Care was born. Early on, all they did was residential lawn care – mow / trim, fertilize, lime, etc. Over the years, God blessed and the company grew in size and scope. Founded, and still based in Ashe County, NC, Northwest Lawn Care also serves Wilkes, Watauga, and Alleghany Counties. In addition, we have expanded our offerings to include the full complement of professionally designed and installed landscape, hardscape and irrigation systems. We also do snow removal, offer pressure washing, stain and seal.

Certainly, we extend our services to all the residents in our four county area. But for two groups of residents, Northwest is able to offer bonus features because of where they live and how often they live there – they are our Seasonal Residents and our Subdivision Residents.

Northwest has been in business since 1989 and during that time has earned a reputation for accessibility and honest dealing. From the beginning, when it was just two guys and a push mower, we determined to give our customers their money's worth, to return their phone calls and to do what we say we will do.

Over the years we’ve done our best to do these things for our customers. For those of you who are now looking for help with your grounds, you probably want to see some credentials. With so many lawn care companies to choose from, why would you want to choose Northwest? What makes Northwest different? Maybe it’s a combination of many things – things like:

Residential Clients are not listed for privacy reasons but they are a major part of our business. However, some of them have offered to say a kind word about Northwest:

"We purchased our 'get away' cabin in 2003.  We always did our own lawn care because we liked doing it but we also are perfectionist.  We soon realized since we are not permanent residents our time was limited when we went up to the mountains and wanted to enjoy the area instead of working on the lawn.   We contacted Tom at Northwest to help with cutting and maintaining the lawn and Northwest has done a super job.  They have helped us in tree cutting and removal,  reseeding, fertilizing and several other jobs as needed. Northwest has been reliable, courteous and price reasonable in all our dealings with them.  When we had an ice storm, Tom helped us find someone to salt our roads even though he didn't do that service.   We are totally pleased and recommend them often to others. "
- Andy and Bunny O'Sullivan

"Northwest has done an excellent job with our lawns for over 20 years.  Their friendly staff, reasonable rates and dependable service have made our lawn care worry-free.  I recommend them without reservation."
 - Michael Bell, Greenhouse Crafts


Because of our busy schedules and the demands in our lives, we sometimes do no take the time to just say Thanks for the good services we enjoy. I have used Northwest Lawn Care for a year and a half and have been very pleased with the good service they are providing. They have always been professional and respond to my needs and requirements.
-Hal Moats, New River Lodge


Thomas, a thank you to you and your crew for the work you have done in our development here in West Jefferson and the work at our home. You and your crew were prompt, courteous and respectful with all the work you did.  Look forward to having you and your team continuing to do work for us in the future.  Could not be more pleased with the work you have done for us.  The best to you and your crew in the future.  Thank you so much, - Jimmy Copeland

I had several large and small trees that were blocking my wonderful view, so I called Northwest Lawn Care to get an onsite estimate. Their representative, Thomas, came out and gave me a great price on topping some of the trees, trimming some, and completely cutting down others.

On the day work was scheduled, I was told they would be at my house by 8 AM, but to my surprise, they arrived at 7:30 AM with a full crew, and all the equipment needed to perform the work.

They were careful with the surrounding trees as they took out the ones we had agreed upon, and the workmen worked liked busy bees all day in my yard. Each one courteous and respectful to me, my yard, and my home.

Before they left at 5:30 PM, all sawdust and clippings were blown away or hauled away after chipping, and my yard looked great.

Other than the new view I now have, you can't tell my yard was ever disturbed.

I'm a very happy customer, and will certainly use Northwest Lawn Care in the future.
