Anyone have another LCO mow their own lawn?

    I know it sounds ridiculous, but sometimes I wish I had someone to mow my lawn so I wouldn't have to worry about it.

    I feel the same way, I only wish I could afford the exorbitant prices that those gosh darn landscapers get! :)

    I hear you! I cannot afford those astronomical prices either. ;)

    I wouldn't pay more than $15 for someone to mow my 1 acre Zoysia lawn...but I will blow $40 on a prime rib dinner in a heartbeat...oh, wait, I'm begining to sound like some of the tight wads that ask me for bids...must be the humidity...what am I saying??? :laugh:

    I don't, but after a long day, and then having to mow my own yard, I admit, I have thought about it.

    My employees cut my lawn. I have not cut it personally since last season. I think If I didnt have employees to do it I would hire someone else!!!! Last thing I feel like doing after working 12 hours is coming home and mowing my own lawn!;)

    JohnG...lol !!!

    This is my 1st season back in the business and I am part time. However, I worked for an lco while in college and I would mow his lawn when he went on his annual 2 week summer vacation.
