The Senior Lawn Service provides free lawn care for senior and handicapped residents of NPU-S who have difficulty maintaining their yards or affording a paid service.
This program is funded entirely by donations from friends of the NPU. We'd like to thank the following donors:
- Mr. Adassa
- Jeff Elrod
- Lydia Crabtree
- Nick Hess
- Theresa Baker
- Councilmember Andre Dickens
- Councilmember Cleta Winslow
About the program
Who Qualifies?The Senior Lawn Service is open to all senior residents over 62, and handicapped residents. You must be a resident of NPU-S - that's the communities of Oakland City, Cascade, Venetian Hills, or Bush Mountain.
How Does it Work?After you register, an NPU-S volunteer will call
you to confirm your interest and gather any additional details. After that, you will receive a packet with coupons good for lawncare services and a directory of people who accept the coupons.
To get your lawn mowed, pick a person from the directory and set up your appointment. Once they're done, give them your coupon - that's it!
What Services Are Provided?
Different services are provided by different people, but in general we offer lawn mowing, hedge trimming, and leaf bagging. You can negotiate for additional services with your provider but the NPU will not pay for those services.
