Hi all. I'll be relocating to Louisville area and hopefully buying a house next year. Can anyone tell me (in general) about how much it cost per month to hire a lawncare service to mow/trim an acre of land? Trying to decide if I want a little back yard or an acre of land. A ballpark figure is fine. Thanks.

50-75 per mowing. Mid-April to Mid-November... weekly through June, bi-weekly through September, and thrice monthly thereafter.

Hmm, sounds like anywhere from 150 to 300 a month (in-season). Might have to do little back yard. Thanks.

That's what my grandma was paying a guy to do her 1/3 acre block (front and back yard combined), just mowing and hauling away the clippings, about 5 years ago. That didn't include the weed-whacking/trimming or picking up the bazillion sticks that all those trees (water maples and something else...) would drop during windy days/storms (just sticks, not really limbs).

I think it depends on the area you live, the size of the yard/block, and who you get to do it. and of course, you get what you pay for. She was fanatical about her yard (typical of that age group) and threw a hissy-fit the minute autumn arrived because of "all those d@mn leaves!!" Of course spring was just as bad because of "all those d@mn 'helicopters'!" (helicopters = water maple seed pods, they whirly-bird down to the ground).

**sniff** miss my MawMaw griping about her yard..

Had to agree with your "MawMaw" about those doggoned helicopters. Those things are a royal pain in the butt. And, if you don't get them all up, it's amazing how fast little trees sprout up (even in your gutters!).

hehe.... yeah, I know! They are pesky things. Almost every trip home I'm pulling baby trees out of the gutters on the house and garage--heck they even grow in the planters on the front porch. Moms got balance issues and I don't want her up the ladder, falling and breaking something.

They're fun when your a kid, though. We used to climb the neighbours tree and shake limbs just to see a storm of them come whirling down all at once. He was never very pleased; it was almost always after he'd gotten his yard looking nice again! All us kids were devastated when he finally gave up and just had the sucker cut down.
