Lawn Jox vs. Master Lawn: Comparing 2 Lawn Care Options for Memphis, TN & N. Mississippi

When it comes to lawn care, you have options. We don’t pretend to be the only lawn care company in Memphis, TN or Northern MS and we recognize that you are comparing us to others in the region. In fact, we invite you to do this, as that’s exactly what a wise consumer should do.

All that being said, you may not know how to compare one lawn company to another. After all, you might assume that they’re all quite similar? What really makes one lawn care company different from another?

While on the surface they may seem similar, lawn care services in Memphis, TN and Northern Mississippi can really vary dramatically from one another. Everything from the services they offer, to how they package them, to the structural makeup of their company can be really different. And that can mean that your results can be significantly different as well.

The best way to compare lawn care companies is to do your research and look at them side-by-side. You should do this with any company that you might be thinking about hiring.

One of the lawn services you may have heard of in Memphis, TN and Northern Mississippi is Lawn Jox. We thought it would be helpful to give you some info as you may be comparing Lawn Jox to Master Lawn so that you can get a better sense of how they stack up.

Who is Lawn Jox Memphis, TN and How Do They Compare to Master Lawn?

One of the first things that you should do as you perform some research is read about the company that you’re considering. According to their website, Lawn Jox got its start in 2006 as a lawn mowing service. 

Today, they have expanded into other services. They list these as lawn care, mower maintenance, core aeration, landscape and property maintenance, tree and shrub care, mosquito/flea/tick control, mole reduction, and turnkey raised garden beds.

Service Area Comparison

Lawn Jox has a service area similar to that of Master Lawn’s (Memphis, TN and Northern Mississippi). However, they do also appear to have a branch in Arkansas.

At Master Lawn, we are committed to a smaller area because it allows us to really get to know the lawn types we are working with (which really can vary as you get too far outside a defined service area). 

Service Comparison

Lawn Jox does offer some services beyond the scope of lawn care (we’re assuming that’s what “property maintenance” means). However, if you were to need a design/build project completed or some more serious lawn renovation work, you’d have to call another company.


One thing that our customers say they like about Master Lawn is that we have a sister company, Michael Hatcher & Associates, a full-service landscaping company that we can bring in when clients do need services outside of our scope. This allows us to remain solely focused on lawn care (what we excel at) while still being able to connect homeowners with additional services that they may need with a staff of experts we know very well.

Program Comparison

Lawn Jox Memphis has a single lawn care program, which has 8 visits. They also have a list of add-on services that they can add to this program.

This is quite different from how Master Lawn structures its lawn care programs. 

We offer 3 different program options so that there is something for every lawn. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Homeowners want choices (and deserve to have them).

Among the choices that we offer is a hybrid option, which homeowners tell us they value. Our hybrid approach includes organic, bionutritional probiotic soil additives to reduce the need for pesticides over time.

Team Comparison

Homeowners also like to research the people that make up a lawn care company they’re considering hiring. Who are the people that they’ll be working with and how will they meet the very specific needs that you have?

There’s not too much information on the About Us page for Lawn Jox that addresses this and they don’t have a team picture, either. Even their blog is made up of stock imagery, not that that’s a “bad thing.” We use stock photos in some rare instances, too. 

But we also take the opportunity to show off real team members and customers as often as we can. We recognize that homeowners do like to get a sense of who we are and what we’re all about before they hire us. Nobody likes a mystery when they’re paying for a professional service.

Online Review Comparison

A final way to compare companies is through their online reviews. Online reviews give you the chance to see what other customers have thought of a company’s service and results. These are performed on a 5-star scale. 

Keep in mind that stars and the number of reviews both matter. That’s because it’s more difficult to maintain a high rating as you get more and more reviews.
