Why hire an acreage lawn care company?
Anyone with a lawn mower can mow an acre or more of lawn. There is no doubt about that, and there is nothing preventing you, or any other property owner, from mowing their own large lawn. So why hire an acreage mowing company? Why spend money when you don’t need to do so?
Industry averages give us these times for mowing one acre:
- Push mower – two hours
- Riding lawn mower – forty minutes
- Tractor mower – 18 minutes
Please note these are average times, and they are based on a “no problem” lawn, flat, smooth, and without obstacles. But let’s use these times to make our point. The first reason for hiring an acreage lawn care company is because it saves you time. The most common mower homeowners and property owners have is a push mower. Spending two hours per week on each mowing is a huge time commitment. How many homeowners have that much spare time to dedicate to the mowing? And how many business owners or property owners have that time?
The next reason for hiring such a company is the money you actually save by doing so. Time is money, and time spent mowing acreage is time taking you away from your regular job/business. The average cost for lot mowing is between $50-$75 per hour. Compare that to your value. How much is your time worth to you? And then consider the cost of equipment. Mowing an acre or two will wear out an average mower very quickly, and then you are faced with the cost of purchasing a new mower, be it a push mower or a riding lawn mower.
And then consider that a professional grass cutting company will do a much better job than you can do, simply because they are professionals.
What should you look for in an acreage lawn mowing company?
Ask for references, and follow-up on those references. Go look at previous jobs that company has done. Talk to the local Better Business Bureau about the company. And make sure that the company has general liability insurance because accidents do happen, and there is no way you should pay for their accidents.
