About Us

Our MissionTo exceed our client’s expectations by offering honest creative landscape solutions with timely personalized services coupled with the highest quality materials while offering opportunities for advancement and growth to our employees and business partners.


The story of our company starts 20 years ago when it was just a boy and a push mower.  It started as a part time job to make money while in High School.  In 1998 Ben decided to create Hawcott Lawn Service and grow the business.  We learned early on that a commitment to honesty, personal relations, and quality products and service would take us where we wanted to go.  Since 1998 our company has seen growth every year thanks to these guiding principles.  What started out as a small mowing company has now blossomed into a full service lawn and landscape management company.  We offer our clients all the services and products they need to keep their lawn and landscape healthy and beautiful.

Why Hire Hawcott Lawn Service

We are a small local business which means you are not dealing with a giant corporation where it can be tough to get personal attention.  You have access to our supervisors at any time.  Their mobile phone numbers are posted on our contact page.By dealing with us instead of a franchise company or giant corporation the money you spend with us stays in the local communities strengthening the local economy.  Much of our money is spent in central Iowa and 90% of our money is spent in Iowa.

Our salaried employees have degrees in horticulture and all of our employees pass a rigorous hiring process, attend continuing education classes, and instructional training.  This means you will be working with some of the best trained and most pleasant people in the horticulture industry.

We are members of the Iowa Professional Lawn Care Association where Ben is a board member and the Iowa Nursery and Landscape Association.  This helps to keep our company up to date with current regulations, trends, and industry practices.

The fertilizers in our treatment programs are custom blended for us.  This enables us to make sure the products we are applying to your property are the best quality and best suited for your site.  See the difference our fertilizers make.

Our grass seed mix is custom mixed for us.  We look at the NTEP trials and select the highest rated grass varieties to use in our mix.  This allows you a turf that will have better color & texture, better disease resistance, and improved drought tolerance.  Since we started offering our custom seed mix a year and a half ago we have sold nearly 3000 lbs of our seed.

The pumps we use in our water features come with a three year warranty.  The nearly 5 oz landscape fabric we use can be exposed to the sun for 5 years and still function.  The concrete pavers we use are some of the most durable and consistent on the market.  What it all comes down to is this.  We will ALWAYS focus on the quality of a product before we focus on the cost.  We want our customers to rest easy knowing that the best quality product has been used on their job.

All of the plants used in our landscapes and that we have available to our customers are purchased from suppliers and growers where the plants are grown in Iowa or Northward.  This means the plants we install for you will be more winter hardy than plants that were grown South of Iowa.
