HOW MUCH DOES LAWN MOWING COSTS?
 
For many of us lawn mowing isn’t one of those fun jobs many of us like to do. Which is why outsourcing to a lawn mowing business makes sense – you get a regularly manicured lawn, without having to do the hard work yourself. And the good news is that lawn mowing won’t break the bank. 
 
Calculating the Cost of Lawn Mowing

There’s no set fee for lawn mowing. That’s because the price you pay will depend on your location, how often you have your lawn mowed, how intricate the layout of your lawn is (how many edges it has), and the size. 
But size isn't everything. A small lawn with a slate stepping stone path in the middle and lots of garden edges may take longer to cut, than a much larger lawn with very few edges.
Maintenance is key. If you let your lawn run wild, the lawn mowing service will have to spend more time getting it back to pristine condition. So keep it mowed regularly and your costs will be lower over time.

As a basic guide to lawn mowing costs, it is misleading to use an hourly rate. They really need to see your job to quote accurately. 

If you have the lawn mowed regularly - say fortnightly or monthly – the rate is likely to be at the lower end of the range.
