    Somehow saw a thread about the lowest price for 2018 mowing, so figured I would make one about the highest. For the sake of it, I’m wondering about mowing/ trimming etc only. Not including a bundled package for chem apps or mulch.

    Mine is a $350 weekly cut on a very high end estate in Kansas City near plaza. Two acre property with a ton of landscaping and trees to go around. Trimming takes the longest and this person is very particular, but pays well for it. What about you guys?

    I have a 8 foot by 12 foot section of lawn I maintain at a condo building. I get $175 per week for it. That's for mow only. Biggest factor for the price is the lawn is on the roof top! Lucky it's a low hight bluegrass (Bella bluegrass) so it never grows to tall. Only take the trimmer up the elevator with a blower takes all of 15 minutes from pull up to pull off.

    It's safe enough to throw parties on! They have rented it out for weddings and whatnots. They have a safety wall/rail so it's not like your just going to fall off unless you wanted to! It's not a super tall building and the view is of the taller building next to it. When it was built you could see the lake.

    I wish I could say I had several at this price range... Most average $60-80. And only have a handful in the $150 area. Nothing in the 2’s. I would rather be on this one property vs doing 10 $35 minimum cuts any day.
