Are You Ready to Roll?

Spring brings birds, barbecues, bike-riding and … lots of grass to cut!
Watch as Property Preservation expert Charles King gives tips on how to complete the perfect property preservation grass cutting ...


Video recap

  1. Find out the size of the lot you will be mowing. (There are a few different ways to do this, but make sure the measurements will be accepted by the client.) 
  2. Take a photo of the street sign where the property is located.
  3. Photograph the front of the house and the address.
  4. Measure the height of the grass in two or three places and take the average of the cutting heights. (Take pictures of your measurements.)
  5. Take some action photos of you cutting the grass.
  6. Take photos of the grass height after you have finished doing the cut.
  7. Pay attention to details.  Make sure to trim the borders and that you sweep cuttings off walks and driveways.

Not All Tools are Created Equal

Our survey results are in!

We asked you --“When heading out to a job, what are the tools that you just can live without?” -- and we got a variety of replies.  In fact, there were more than 100 different tools property preservation experts said were vital to their jobs.  We’ll give you the Top 10 in a minute.

But first, we thought you might like to see some of the more unusual tools mentioned.  These tools we put in our special “Only in the Property Preservation business” category.


“… what are the tools that you can’t live without?”

  1.  “Truck-mounted Prochem Blazer”
  2.  “Sledgehammer”
  3. “Myself”

The tried-and-true drill came in as the most “valuable” tool of all. It was so popular, in fact, that its tally was double that of the second-place item -- the generator.
