Bruce ( Lakemore, IL )

This is my first year with Billy Goat I couldn't be happier with the service.James is on top of things from the get go. He has been very helpful throughout the year specifically getting a huge tree removed that had fallen on my house. If you need anything done he will do it or make sure its done. Online billing and communication make everything easier for me and saves time THANKS FOR EVERYTHING GUYS

Amy ( Johnsburg, IL )

I originally called 5 companies to get a quote on weekly cuts. Two never called back, one left quote on door handle a week later, one called a week later and Billy Goat called from my yard with a quote the same day. Jim not only quoted me an excellent price he cut the grass same day! He even had to cut it twice because it was so bad! This was over 3-4 years ago. Jen and Jim are a great team! Great company, Great service & Great family! Thanks for all you do!

K Skjolaas ( Ingleside, IL )

Great service. Excellent at communicating with their customers and very convenient online bill pay link directly from the invoice email.

Ryan Regan ( Wauconda, IL )

This is our first year using Billy Goat and are extremely happy with their service! It is so nice finding a company that shares our philosophy of all natural organics. I am very happy with Jennifer's great response time via email, online payment option, and Jim's valuable expertise when we discuss options on site. When they say they are flexible and will personalize your package program, they do! I look forward to continuing service with Billy Goat.

Joe Kinnerk ( Johnsburg, IL )

First time user myself, got a high recommendation to use them and has been every bit of what they said. Like the email updates/approval for other dates if works with scheduling, also love the online payments as on the road alot. Looking forward to continuing service along with additional if needed, thanks

Beth & Rich Gozdecki ( McHenry, IL )

We found Billy Goat Lawn Care earlier this year and are very pleased with their service. Jim started out with a soil test to determine exactly what we needed. The test results and proposal came back quickly. The work was authorized and performed as proposed. We appreciate being able to use a company that embraces organic practices. Jennifer is always very prompt in responding to our e-mails. We are looking forward to a long relationship with Billy Goat.

Nicole Conway ( Spring Grove, IL )

This is the first season that Billy Goat Lawn Care is taking care of our yard. After quite a few negative experiences with other lawn care providers, I truly appreciate Billy Goats reliable service. They come when they say they will and complete the work that was agreed on. They also provide great communication if e.g for weather related reasons the schedule is messed up and they need to come on a different day. Additionally, any questions I had got answered right away. Thanks, Jim and Jennifer.

Brandon ( Antioch, IL )

Awesome service!! My yard is one for the record books of needing work done and I’m excited to see how this all turns out!! Great company would recommend them to everyone!!

Sean Ryan ( Johnsburg, IL )

Billy Goat gets it done right first and always. They involve the home owner every step of the way and make logical recommendations to improve the properties they are involved with!

Kay ( McHenry, IL )

Transparent about products and services. This is true no pesticides or herbicides unlike some major brands that reveal in their fine print they use some chemicals in small amounts when situation warrants. Huh? Accessible. Informative. Responsive.

Joe ( Johnsburg, IL )

Anne M ( Johnsburg, IL )

Contracted with Billy Goat for spring 2019 yard cleanup of remaining fall leaves and debris from winter. The quote for this service was reasonable and the service was prompt. James & Jennifer did a great job of readying my yard for mowing. James provided helpful advice to making the lawn healthy and attractive again. Billy Goat Lawn Care will be doing weekly maintenance and maybe some seeding down the road.
Thanks to James & Jennifer, the yard looks great!

Great service and great people!!! Very thorough & great to work with.

George ( Lake Villa, IL )

They provided great service at a reasonable price. My lawn has never looked better.

Betty ( McHenry, IL )

I truly appreciate the extremely prompt responses to my questions and to setting me up for weekly service after the contract was sent over and approved.

Since, I moved into a new home with new turf that the builder watered for weeks without cutting, it was probably very challenging to cut the first time. Then we had a week of rain and it was long and wet again. You did a great job of cutting it and came by a day early to cut it. I greatly appreciate the hard work and response.

Lastly, you’re organic and with the state of the Earth these days, I want to do anything I can to help with the pollution.

Betty ( McHenry, IL )

Billy Goat Lawn Care is extremely reliable and has also been flexible when I had a recent scheduling issue in my backyard with a patio project. Billy Goat came a day early to cut the grass for me that week.

Lisa ( Johnsburg, IL )

Would definitely recommend; great service and takes time to explain their service and answer any questions you have. Our lawn looks better already!

Katie ( Spring Grove, IL )

A great family company!! They did an awesome job and my lawn looks great!

Anne ( Johnsburg )

I have been very pleased with Billy Goat Lawn care since we started doing business with them three years ago. Prices have been kept reasonable and communication is excellent. You are kept in the loop if there needs to be a change in service due to weather which is always appreciated. Jim & Jen are approachable owners who work at pleasing the customer! Hoping to have them back in 2022! Have a safe off-season.

Tatiana ( Trevor, WI )

Excellent thorough and most importantly reliable service!!! Can’t wait for next season!

John & Cindy ( Johnsburg, IL )

My lawn looks better than its looked for several years even in the draught we've had this summer so far. The bigger franchise companies don't compare and generally cost more. I have had bad experience with Lawn Doctor and Grounds Guys.

Billy Goat Lawn Care did an amazing job on our lawn. We would highly recommend them

You let me know what you were doing and you were at my house on the day you said. So simple but so important.
