Default Garden mowing service cost

Hello everyone.

want to check if you could share your experience related to what is the reasonable on-going cost to do garden mowing (grass cutting) for the area approx 1000 sq m? Want to get an idea, so nobody could take advantage of us

Thanks in advance

I have 2673 sq metres of grassland which I have strimmed every three weeks From April until the beginning of October. It's done by a father and son who take just under two hours to do the lot. Costs me 8000 HUF but doesn't include raking up the cut grass.

What will make a difference is whose machine is used. With the example that Sachina quoted above at 4000 huf / hour I would expect that to be their machine and fuel. If it is your machine then I would expect not more than 1500 huf / hour. The problem with 1000 sq m is that it is a small area so possibly more travel time than work time.

Last year we had a chap who worked after his regular job and charged 1500 / hour with my machines and 2500 / hour with his strimmer - which I thought was v. good value so when it was tractoring it was my tractor but strimming I reckoned it wasn't worth the wear and tear + fuel to use my strimmer so I paid him to use his machine.

Additional hours may be needed due to the height of the grass if not mowed, strimmed or whatever regularly.
