We have a 1 acre yard. In ten years I have killed 3 new lawn mowers and 4 second hand.ones. I have a push mower (non gas/non-electric) but the blades go dull very quickly and it takes hours longer to cut.
So here's the delimma.
We know a guy who is willing to cut the lawn for $50 cash every two weeks with his ride on. (He has a business). BUT we are his only client on this area of town and will have to pay for his tolls as well. He also has us at the end of his list so it might be a month before he comes. esp if it rains and then his other clients get done before us....
We can either pre pay with the tax money for the season or tighten our belt and get our own ride on (which I can't drive- yet) for $1500.
So what is better $800 for the year or $1500 for the machine? Please bear in mind that my city will fine you no less than $85 for an un cut lawn as it is considered a health issue.
All other lawn services charge $80-$150 for our lawn. Though some might lessen it a bit if we prepay for the season. But then we could use our cards.
