Cost Of Mowing the Lawn
Mowing is one of the most common lawn care tasks for which you might bring in a professional. In the summer, this is a job that might need to be completed as often as once each week, and without a riding lawnmower, it can take hours. Homeowners should expect to pay roughly $61 for professional mowing services, but the exact price will depend on where your home is located as well as the total size of your lawn.
Cost Of Tree Trimming or Pruning
Tree care is often overlooked when considering lawn care, but healthy trees are integral to an attractive and appealing landscape. Pruning trees each winter ensures that there are no dying branches, and it stimulates green growth in the spring. Expect to pay anywhere from $170 to $333 for tree trimming or pruning services from a lawn care professional.
Costs Of Weeding
While many people enjoy gardening as a hobby, others would prefer to hire an expert to handle regular weeding around plants and flowers. Professionals who undertake this job would need to come back on a regular basis, or they can use weed killer as a more permanent solution. Costs for an hour of weeding can be anywhere from $12 to $40.
Costs Of Winterizing Your Lawn
Another common expense in lawn care is winterizing your outdoor space. This ensures that your entire lawn doesn't die with the first snowfall, and it can prevent that unattractive brown lawn come spring. The cost of professionally winterizing your lawn is an average of $404, but that will vary depending on the severity of your region's climate as well as the total size of your lawn.
