I grow a lot of clover/dollar weed so I may need some weed, feed, and seed consultation as well. Although I would like to maintain it.

I pay $50 a time for my grass to be mowed (just over an acre), the ditch bank and other areas to be weedeated, and the driveway to be edged and blown off.

Have that done about every couple weeks, so like $100 a month... It was $40 each time up until this year...

I am starting to try to work on my yard, and am still looking for a grass feed, and weed killer that will work for centipede.

 

Having a bit of a hard time honestly.

ya, my last place was about 2.5 acres of grass to cut...I did it once with a push mower like that when my old ride-on was broke.  As soon as I was done I was in the truck to the store to buy the Country Clipper!!!

 

she's bad ass....52" , triple blade deck and I seem to recall a 28HP engine...throw on the bagger with the blower in it and I can make any lawn look professional in minutes, although I usually operate with the mulch blades and don't bag!

Cool. We pay $140/mo for 42 weeks. Includes seeding, fertilization, weeding etc.

 

I think that is pretty standard.

That isn't bad, actually... The dude that does mine is actually a state trooper who just does this yard work on the side for the extra money... He doesn't do any seeding or fertilizing, and basically just handles the general cutting/trimming/edging and the subsequent cleanup.

Oh yeah thing I love is that they get rid of all the leaves in the fall.

 

I hate doing that
