What would be your bid to mow and blow?



2 hours of edging, 2 1/2 hours of mowing trimmed 3 hedges. By the time I was through, it was about 110 degrees (Noon). It was getting hot. Not to complain, Do you think $200 a month is worth it?

Where are you in AZ? Sounds like an old scottsdale or fountain hills yard.

To me, only if you had to do it once a month. Once a week, no way. Do you think busting your butt in the heat for 4 1/2+ hours for fifty bucks is worth it? If you do, have fun. If not, walk away.

Why does it take you 2 1/2 hours to mow a 10k lawn? That should take a half hour or 45 minutes at the most. There must be a landscape issue or difficult entry.
