Hi, I am looking for someone to mow lawn and may be take care of the whole landscape. I know this forum is for people who own business ..but more people come here than assisting owner forum, I decided to try here also . I have a small lawn in a front and large lawn in the back, total size is about 3/4 acer. This lawn went in last Novemver. I've got few quotes , it ranges $435 a month to $900 a month. I didn't know it was going to be that expensive to maintain , therefore I am still going through a shock stage . Someone here adviced me that instead of giving up a hope, I may be able to get in touch with landscape people in my area (Bend, Oregon) who come to this forum and they may be able to give me a better quotes or advices on going prices around my area. Come to think of that few quotes I got were from rather large landscape places, may be someone here may be interested in taking care of my yard . Any advice is welcom and appreciated!! Thank you very much.
