A contract is a formal agreement between a buyer and seller in which each party promises to do something for the other for a fee. Generally one party promises to deliver goods and/or services, and the other party promises monetary payment in exchange.

A lawn care services contract allows a client to formally agree with a lawn care contractor for lawn care services in exchange for payment. The lawn care contractor will commonly provide lawn mowing, hedging, clipping, tree trimming, plantation and maintenance requests from the home owner.

The lawn care maintenance services are generally provided on a scheduled basis, especially for commercial property owners or caretakers, with the clients paying a recurring weekly, monthly or yearly amount.
