How Much Should You Pay for Lawn Mowing in Colorado?
Of course we all want a bargain wherever we can get one. This is especially true when we're paying for a weekly lawn maintenance and mowing service. So how much should you pay for lawn mowing service here in the front range? We can't give you an exact figure but this post should help inform your decision on whether or not you should be paying for mowing service.
Depends what you get
Let's start by understanding what it is you should get when you pay someone to mow your lawn on a regular basis. After all, you could be cutting it yourself, right? So if you go with a professional, it's reasonable for you to expect better results. At a minimum, you should be getting:
- reliable service on a regular, predictable basis
- quality, professional service
- a lawn that's never too long and never too short
- honest, professional communication
Depends where you live
Where you live is an important factor. It's no secret that services in rural communities cost much less than they do in an urban communities. That's not to say that services offered in the city are more complex and specialized. Instead, the primary factor here is economics. There are more people in the city so demand is much higher. According to one prominent consumer review site, the average cost to mow a standard lawn in the United States is $30-$45. In Kansas, the average is $31 but here in Colorado, the average is $40. Clearly, Colorado has more urban homes than Kansas and the demand for services is greater.
Depends on your lawn
No two lawns are exactly the same and that's a good thing. Your lawn is the first thing someone sees when they visit your home and the last thing they see when they leave. Maintaining a beautiful lawn is the first step towards maintaining a beautiful home. That's why it's important to hire someone who can get to know your lawn and take good care of it. Far too many lawn care businesses come and go without giving grass the time and attention it needs to look it's best. When hiring a lawn care company, don't make your decision solely based on price. Talk with the company about their lawn maintenance process, make sure their prices are fair, and put more emphasis on how much effort they put into understanding your lawn and it's needs.
The cheapest services out there tend to yield the poorest quality work. If you want quality, professional lawn care service, understand the averages in your area and then pay for the level of service you want. And remember, your lawn is the first and last thing visitors to your home see.
