A.H. asks from Murfreesboro, TN on April 03, 2009
I am looking for an affordable landscaper to do some yard clean up now and mowing when it is time. I am taking over the task of hiring someone, b/c he simply wouldn't cut it on a regular basis and I am tired of asking. The landscapers I talked to seemed expensive. Does the lawn really need cutting every week? Can it be done every other week? And is $120 a month a fair price or high? Can anyone recommend some affordable landscapers in the Lombard area?? Help!

Contracts are based on weekly basis. All lawn care is that way. I use to try to save also but noone will touch the job without weekly maintenance. You can get people for preseason lawn cleanup. That's a different fee but cleanup is done on entire yard; bushes, hedges raking removal etc. I use FAVELA LANDSCAPING ###-###-####. Free estimates and just aeraited my front and back for way under $100. Give him a call, he's reasonable. I told him I would use him next year because I'm already contracted with the people that did my yard for the past 2 years.

We have someone come to mow every week during last summer and it was $25 each time. We went through Bill's Landscaping in Bartlett

I have a great landscaper who is very reasonable. He actually lives in Lombard. His company is called
MAV's Exteriors,Inc. His name is Mike Virgilio and his number is ###-###-#### or ###-###-####. Give him a call for a free estimate, he is reliable and honest. Give him a try.

I hear you...I'm so tired to asking my husband to do it! It really bothers me when our lawn gets long but doesn't bother my husband a bit! Yardwork is just not his thing. Anyway, some of my neighbors get theirs cut by services and since I'm always inquiring about it, I know that they pay between $25-28 per week (they come every week). I ended up asking our teenage neighbor to do it and he only charges $20 & just does it whenever he cuts his lawn, so about every 7-10 days. He doesn't do the trimming/weed whacking & edging though that the services do so we still have to do that. So, you could probably find a service closer to $100 per month or maybe find a teenage neighbor to do it? Good luck! Was just thinking the other day that I'm not ready for this battle to begin again this year! :)

cAll the city hall or churches in your area. They often have lists of teenagers who will come and do this cheaper and/or they have community service hours to do. My son did that a few years back and helped in the fall also with leaves. We also ended up babysitting for these people. So who knows. Enjoy your family!
