You’ve finally made the decision. There’s no way that you are wasting a moment of summer mowing the lawn. As an avid grass connoisseur, I cannot say that I share your sentiment; however, I appreciate your desire to do what you enjoy and minimize time spent on chores.
I assume you’re not going to ask me over every week to eat your grass (your loss), so you’re going to have to find some other way to keep your lawn looking fresh and neat. If you’re seriously considering paying a professional lawn maintenance company to cut your lawn for you, let me help you consider what that means, dear human.
The cost of a lawn service
You’re looking at paying someone at least once a week to cut your lawn, and unless it’s a dry summer, once a week is likely not enough. The cost associated with those visits also varies widely on everything from the size and typography of your lawn to the location of your home (yes, lawn care companies do charge higher rates to cut yard in swanky neighborhoods).
In addition to the costs, you have to consider the experience level and reputation of the lawn care provider you select. Someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing can tear up a lawn faster than a goat (I would know) and cost you far more to rehab their disaster if they’re not properly insured.
One more thing: do you care when they show up? Sure, you can schedule a specific day and window of time if the company uses one of those fancy scheduling apps… But what happens if it rains, the baby goes down late for her nap, or your kid brings half the neighborhood over for a backyard soccer match just as the lawn people are pulling up? You can’t depend on your life syncing well with the business owner’s schedule.
I bet you’re reconsidering having “the people” come take care of your lawn, aren’t you? Thought so.
The reality about robotic lawn care
Maybe it’s time to consider the coolest new thing I’ve seen since onion grass smoothies: robot lawn mowers! Just like their indoor cousins, robot vacuums, you can program robot lawn mowers to operate during specific hours or cancel midway through. But unlike the indoor versions, you won’t have to empty chambers or change any bags because a robot lawn mower will redistribute the clippings to naturally and organically fertilize your lawn.
Traditional lawn services can spread pests, fungi and weeds from lawn to lawn. Your dedicated robotic mower eliminates these threats. And it’s better for the planet. To see one of these engineering marvels in action, head over here.
Consider this: a base model will cost around the same price as a full season of average lawn care service.
Does a robot lawn mower sound too expensive for your budget? Think again. Consider this: a base model will cost around the same price as a full season of average lawn care service. Monthly payment plans actually begin below the cost of one lawn service cut. (According to manta.com, the average cost for lawn service is $38 in the St. Louis area.)
