Right now my husband does it. But, our neighbor had a neighborhood kid do his yard for like $30, and he’s got about a half acre. Not sure what a company would cost you

I live in a gated community and our maintenance is $ 261 per month (required) which sucks but they do everything. Our grass gets mowed every monday, palm leaves picked up, things tidied and it includes the water in the sprinkler system that is typically ever ynight depending on the drought conditions

@kerensa:

I live in Ohio too and have 5 acres, I couldn’t imagine paying someone to mow it! However for kicks and bc Darling Husband was being lazy and not helping I asked a friend who owns a landscaping business and his print out says for your size approx $50-75/mth for 2 mowings, edging and trimming.

I think we’re getting ripped off, we pay $15 every week for just our front lawn & its just a standard size lawn…and they don’t landscape it, just mow, weedwhack, edge, and blow.

We have a company come in every week and mow, weed, sod if needed, hedge, and maintain the lawn for $150 a month.   It’s totally worth it to us as we’re a bit of work-a-holics and the weekends is all we have to spend time together.

It’s at least $35.00 each time here…so I do it myself with a push mower, or wait for my neighbour to get fed up with my lawn and do it for me!Cool

we only have grass in the front and its a tiny little thing. so our gardner charges us $25 a month cuts weekly & we also have 2 hedges he trims… i actually want him to pull a old rose bush & bush to plant new roses. i know it will be a little more money but reasonable

its worth it i hate doing yard work

AnnieAAA :  I live in Baton Rouge La and pay $60 a week for very tiny front yard and not even a half of an acre in the back, and he weeds my flower bed, edges everything, and prunes my flowers as needed. I also tip him $20 …July 22, 2016
