Can anyone give me an idea how much they pay to have their lawn mowed and how big their lawn is? I'm considering paying someone to cut it and have no idea what the going rate is.

We pay a guy to mow the yard of our house in Texas, he charges $30 to mow/edge/blow 1/4 acre yard.

I think he does it once a month March/April, bi-weekly May-Sept, then once in October.

It's in Denton, just north of Dallas. My wife has friends in Pearland, she grew up in Sugar Land just southwest of Houston.

She thought about bailing due to the early nature of the day, but she told me today she's decided to come.
