What is acreage lawn mowing?
In this case, the definition is truly in the name. Anytime one mows a lawn which is at least an acre in size, it is considered acreage lawn mowing. It should be noted that this definition only applies to a lawn and not to a field of hay or an unkept field. A football field is considered acreage lawn mowing; a forgotten acre on a farm is not, and that distinction is important when deciding what kind of equipment will be used to mow the area.
How much does it cost to hire acreage mowing services?
It actually is impossible to answer this question for all areas in all counties in all states. The price is set by competition in any given area. Supply and Demand will dictate price, so you need to shop around and find out what the going rate is for acreage mowing. Some companies will charge by the hour. Some will charge by the acre. And some will do one of those plus add surcharges for distance traveled or additional equipment used on a job.
Generally speaking, and this is really a very rough estimate, an acre of lawn will usually cost in the $75-$100 range but again, we caution you, that price is nothing more than a very rough estimate. A few phone calls in your area will establish a norm very quickly in your area.
What equipment is needed for lot mowing?
For a straight-forward mowing job, usually a tractor mower is used. Modern tractor mowers can make short work of an acre, finishing it in less than an hour. The only other piece of equipment which would possibly be used would be a brush hog, a mower attachment used to cut down small brush and vegetation other than grass.
Beware of any commercial mowing service which does not use a tractor mower. To use a walk-behind mower for such a large job would take far too long to complete, and if you are paying by the hour, that is not good for you, the customer.
How do you choose commercial mowing services from so many?
There is no better way to choose from the many options than to call around and ask for recommendations, or ask the companies for former clients you can contact. It won’t take you long to establish who the good mowing companies are and which one cannot be trusted. Yes, it will take you time to do so, but that time will save you money and headaches in the long run, and we highly recommend that you do so.
And that is really all you need to know about acreage lawn mowing. By taking the time to educate yourself, and by taking the time to root out the good from the bad, you can hire a very trustworthy commercial service and have great results for many years.
