Every client has different requirements based on their home’s condition and what they are looking for.  For example, Landscape Associates has one client that wanted our mow crews to be quiet near their commercial building when we were mowing so we wouldn’t disturb the hotel guests.  What we did for that client was use specialty electric equipment that runs on batteries.  Using this specialized equipment, we are able to provide an individualized service to meet the needs of our client.  Landscape Associates also has clients that want the mowing pattern to be crisscross.  These are examples of individualized wants and needs of our clients that will affect the pricing of our lawn mowing service.  Anyone you hire to mow your lawn should be insured and any lawn care professional that is applying a pesticide should be certified through the state of Wisconsin otherwise they are breaking the law and could be endangering your family, themselves, and the environment.  Make sure that the lawn care professional that you hire to mow and take care of your lawn meets professional standards.  You can read more about that at the Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association Fox Valley Chapter website.  The size of your lawn, degree of slopes, and shapes of your lawn sections will all factor into the cost of hiring a professional to mow your lawnApproximate Professional Mowing Cost: $50 – $900 per mow.

How Much Does Holiday Lighting Cost?

I remember when I was kid having to go out every December, in the cold, and spend hours putting up the holiday lights in our landscaping.  It was cold, I would have to fight the knots, figure out where the burnt-out bulb was, and then have to take it all down a month later. Normally, I loved to work in the landscape with my dad but I always dreaded the hassle of putting up holiday lights.  Starting around $600 you can hire a professional to take the hassle out of holiday lighting for you.
