Approximate price of a lawn mowing job

A lawn mowing job will cost you about $84.46. This is for an average-sized lawn that requires a standard maintenance routine including grass cutting, sidewalk edging, trimming, and removal of debris and grass clippings in the curbs, walks, lawn areas, drives and patios. If you need additional services, ready your pockets as you’re likely to pay a bigger amount.

What causes the price to change?

Lawn mowing costs depend on the business that you will hire. Companies that are insured, reputable, and experienced normally charge higher rates for their services. This is because they can assure you of professional and high-quality work.

Also, some lawn mowing businesses offer just the basic mowing and trimming routine, while others provide more than that. Be prepared to pay extra for any add-ons such as fertilisation, soil aeration, and weed control.

In addition to that, the size of the lawn and the amount of work that needs to be done also affect the total cost of a lawn mowing job. The longer it takes to finish the tasks, the more you’ll have to pay.

Lastly, if you’re going to hire a lawn mowing specialist to do the job on a regular basis, you can expect lower rates. On the other hand, a one-off job will cost you a higher amount.
