There are many reasons to consider hiring a professional lawn company to mow your lawn weekly. And there is no doubt that professional grade equipment results in a professional looking lawn. Today we are going to focus on the cost of owning and maintaining the equipment necessary to achieving a professional looking lawn.
Here is a list of some of the equipment needed and a mid-range price for such equipment:
- Professional mid-range zero turn 54” mower: $2995.00
- Gas powered string trimmer/bush cutter: $195.00
- Electric 22” hedge trimmer: $45.00
- Gas Powered refurbished 22” hedge trimmer: $135.00
- Broadcast Fertilizer and seed spreader: $60.00
- Hand held gas powered blower: $150.00
The list above only includes the equipment necessary to prune shrubs, mow, trim, and blow off the cuttings. You still need the usual assortment of garden tools such as shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows and various hand tools. This could easily add up to another $1000.00.
Once you add up the cost of all the equipment you then need to figure in the cost of maintaining that equipment (i.e. sharpening blades, oil changes, mechanical work) as well as the gas and power to run it.
Besides the cost of owning and maintaining the equipment. There is the cost of time and energy that it takes to care for your lawn on a consistent basis. Consider the ways you envision spending time in the yard such as playing with your kids or grandkids, cooking on the grill to share a meal with friends and family, or just relaxing in the shade with a good book. Are you giving up the things you would enjoy doing in your yard because it takes up so much of your time to care for it.
