Top Cut establishing impressive reputation

MILLEDGEVILLE — Heavy rains and summer temperatures have many Baldwin County yards in dire need of clean up.

If a homeowner would rather let a professional handle the outgrowth, Kevin Kirby’s Top Cut Lawn and Landscaping outfit has the tools and the know-how.

At just 18 years-old, Kirby started cutting grass early.

“I first started when I was 12 years-old just doing yards around the neighborhood,” he said. “It expanded more after I got my driver’s license.”

Kirby started Top Cut in early 2012. It made his Georgia Military College Prep sports career tough, but he still managed.

“It was tough for a while. I actually used to play high school sports, and I had to stop,” Kirby said. “My last year I decided to play them again.”

Maturity helped Kirby juggle a small business, school and that final football season.

He credits Danny Burgess at Bed Rock for helping advance his landscaping knowledge, but Kirby is mostly self-taught.

Top Cut’s specialty is landscape maintenance including trimming, mowing and hedge work. Kirby can also complete sod and irrigation needs as well.

He recently became a Hunter Irrigation Preferred Contractor. Top Cut maintains a licensed and insured operation.

Though Top Cut hasn’t filed a claim in three years, this safety net should put current or potential customers at ease.

“You want to make sure that insurance will be provided in case something does happen,” Kirby said.

Top Cut uses mostly Husqvarna equipment Kirby pulls with a 16-foot trailer working the Milledgeville and Baldwin County area. The lake neighborhoods are his bread and butter right now.

Kirby said the convenience of Top Cut’s payment system and having a website sets the business apart.

“Most companies require pay after service. I do monthly billing,” he said. “It makes it more convenient with the customer.”
