Lawn Mowing – The Going Rate

What’s it worth to you to skip mowing the lawn for a week?
Depending on where you live, a typical lawn trim will set you back anywhere from $35 to $67.50.

Mowing companies tend to charge more for detail work around garden walls, fences and other edges, or when there are steep slopes or tricky access issues. They often blow clippings, leaves and other debris from patios, driveways and walkways at no extra charge.

$40 for a 10,000-square-foot lawn ($4 per 1,000 square feet)
“People are really into their lawns, shrubs, trimmings and all that good stuff.”

$36.25 for any lawn up to 3,000 square feet (about $12, or more, per 1,000 square feet)
It’s better to use a basic, 21-inch mower rather than heavy-duty commercial equipment to avoid compacting soil. The service changes direction each week to avoid creating ruts and encourage healthy growth. “And aesthetically it looks cool.”
