I pay $15 per mow to a couple of "guest workers" I met in the parking lot of the Home Depot. No pruning or weeding or treatments though.

I'd pay more if she is hot and wearing daisy dukes

That's a great idea. Have a lawn service with hot girls mowing lawns and pulling weeds. Neighbors may even chip in for that show.

Right now the wife gets the lawn cut for nothing! I keep telling her I need a raise.

If anyone uses a lawn service for weeds that is environmentally friendly, please post the info. Thanks!

My company has several environmentally friendly lawn care products. Weed control is nearly impossible, but thickening up the lawn through rigorous fertilization. This includes non-phosphorous products. The products are a little costly compared to traditional methods, but may suit your needs. You can find us in the Patch directory under Turf Management, Inc. or we are also on Facebook.

Our residential mowing starts at $30 per cut for season-contracted services, or about $750.00 per year. This is for lawns 1/2 acre or less. For larger lawns, we quote for free. Generally, pruning is not included but paid for at an hourly rate, as well as weeding. For lawn care, rates start at $30.00. For a free quote, contact me at 262-939-8060. Turf Management, Inc. has been in business for 25 years and maintains all of Caledonia parks, the village hall and the community center, as well as providing the Weed Commissioner services for the village. Tou can also email me at turf414@gmail.com.

When I moved to Caledonia over 20 years ago I decided to hire a lawn service to mow my 1 acre lot. I forget the cost but the grief and irritation wasn't worth it at any cost. They screwed everything up. My favorite was one day they came after a few days of rain and decided to mow the grass in the ditch beside the highway. They had some huge push mower that sunk in and got stuck! When they finally got it out deep ruts remained. That was the last straw. Shortly thereafter I purchased a large garden tractor and have been doing the job myself ever since.
