    If you have someone that comes regularly to mow/edge your lawn how much do you pay, if you don't mind sharing please?
    I just paid $40 for 2 men who have their own business doing this stuff to mow/edge/blow our front yard. He doesn't have set prices but would rather you pay what you think it's worth.

    Our backyard is a jungle right now (thanks to a lazy dh) and weeds are 3ft high. It's a big backyard so I expect to pay a lot for that. Put it this way, once he saw it he said, "oh my god". :lol 4 hrs work he said.
    We have a rider mower but the kids took the key and it's around the house somewhere. Tim will have to get gas for the thing and try using a flathead screwdriver to get it started. Hopefully that'll work and save us some $$. They are coming tomorrow to hack/mow/edge/blow tomorrow and it will cost us $150. ouch.

    $25 to mow, edge, weed-eat the front and back yard. Trimming the hedges is usually an extra 15-20, depending on how long it's been :bag. In the spring, a full cleanup job is about $150.

    We pay 30.00 and we pay extra during the pruning times of the year. We pay a little extra for picking up leaves a couple times a year also.

    I pay 15 a week for four guys to come mow, weed-eat, edge and blow everything off. Of course we don't have a big yard either but there is plenty of things to weed-eat and edge.

    We use Ostrander I said...15.00 for front,side and back..mow, edge, weedeat and blow everything off. We dont have a big yard and they have most of the houses on my street so I'm sure that affects their price.

    We pay 20 and they mow, edge and blow and done very quickly as well. I think there are 2-3 guys. We do it every other week, you just gotta tell them to cut it shorter and be sure to get water to it afterwards.

    We use Eden Landscape.
    We pay $25 each time they come. They mow, weedeat and blow the front and back yards. They come with 3-4 workers and get it knocked out in 10-15 minutes.

    Tim's got a friend coming next weekend to help with the backyard. I found the key to the rider mower but the gas line is broken. He will get a replacement.
    How would Cullen get over here?
