Is there a difference in landscaping and mowing?

    For what it is worth your insurance company sees them as separate items. If you only cut grass you are a lawn service not a landscaper, but if you own a shovel or a wheelbarrow you will certainly be paying landscaper rates.

    Mow = lawncare
    Installation = landscape
    Repair/replace = property management
