What does mowing big lots even mean?

Although you won’t find a specific answer to this question online, within the commercial mowing industry we consider any mowing job over one acre in size to be big lot mowing or acreage mowing if you prefer.  You might sometimes see it referred to as lot mowing.  In a nutshell, in layman’s terms, it means any mowing job too large for a residential, walk-behind mower to handle.

The many types of “big lots.”

The inexact nature of the term “big lots” means it covers all manner of mowing job.  It can refer to ranch mowing, cemetery mowing, church mowing, pipeline mowing, HOA mowing, industrial mowing, right of way mowing along highways, farm mowing, even baseball field grass mowing.

Each type of job requires specific equipment and knowledge.

And this is the key point to understand if you are looking for commercial mowing services to handle one of the jobs listed above: each one of those jobs requires specific experience and specific equipment.

An example: a farmer is looking for someone to do some pasture mowing for them.  What length should the grass in that pasture be mowed at to stimulate maximum growth? How often should it be cut? The height of the grass, and the frequency of the cut, matter with regards to natural seeding and weed control.

Another example:  pipeline mowing requires large machinery capable of going “off-road” to follow the pipeline.  It also requires the expertise to operate large machinery on uneven, rugged ground.

Another example: A baseball field needs mowing. How do you mow in a diamond shape? What length should the infield be cut at? The outfield? These things matter to the players and managers, and need to be done correctly.

Bottom line: specific mowing jobs require specific knowledge and experience. Before you hire a mowing company for your mowing job, make sure they have the experience necessary. Ask for references from other ranchers if you are looking for ranch mowing, or from other pipeline job foremen if you are looking for pipeline mowing.  And then follow up on those references to make sure what is promised by the mowing company can, in fact, be delivered.

And for the love of Pete, stop doing “mowing big lots” Google searches.  Type in the keywords necessary to narrow down the list to only people who claim they can do the job you need.
