Looking for an inexpensive lawn care service to cut my grass.
Lawn mower is broken, and grass hasn't been cut in over a month.

Fix or replace the mower, it will pay for itself in a couple of months.

I have to agree with REL, however, it will be MUCH less expensive if you fix the mower and do it yourself. My guess is that most of the lawn care services are competitve pricewise.

Thanks for the replys. The reason I'm looking for someone to cut my grass ( I hate to pay someone)
is that the grass is high now and I was able to borrow a lawn mower. When mowing the front yard I was attack by wasps and stung 7 times. I looked like a wild woman running around the yard the mower went one way and I was running the other way
from a swarm of wasp. OMG the pain was really bad!!

So just looking for a service to get the grass down, and I can look for the nest and pour gas on them.

Yikes! That sounds HORRIBLE! Be sure to warn whomever you get to mow. I don't know what the liability might be. Anyone know? It might just be considered a hazard of the job. I have no idea.

I saw a mowing service yesterday and those operating the power equipment were.......white! Times sure must be hard.

I must see 5 or 6 different mowing companies working downtown on any given day. I can't vouch for any of them but if you want to know were they hang out try the QT on Chapel Hill. Seems there's always one parked parallel to the street with their guy inside eating those day-old burritos and hot dogs.

Oh, and on the wasps, its a liability if you knew beforehand and didn't tell them.

Thanks for the info. I don't mind mowing just don't want to get stung again.:) Someone said to mow late at night - ◦Wasps are active during the day and dormant at night, which makes night time the best time to spray. Do not spray at dusk or dawn, even if the sunlight is minimal, as wasps are more likely to attack in any sunlight. Wasps are extremely reactive to light, so when spraying in the dark, do not use flashlights or artificial light of any kind. Long-range wasp sprays, which can be applied at 20 feet, are safest when spraying in the dark.
◦Spraying is most necessary in the months from August to October, when wasps are most aggressive and more likely to sting. Wasps will die out in the winter months, so if a nest is discovered in the late fall spraying may be unnecessary
wasps cannot fly in temperatures below 50 degrees, spraying is safer and more effective if the temperature is below that mark.

wasp remedy: go to auto parts store. buy four big cans of carb cleaner. grab friend. two cans per person. one can per hand. walk up to nest. blast the crap outo f them as they fly around. carb cleaner knocks them down instantly.

lawn problem: fix lawn mower. take it to all types repair on bankhead. man's name is eddie. very good pricing and does not rip you off.

any other problems?

Are you for real? Get some wasp spray from Lowes and spray the yard. But I didn't know wasps lived in the ground. Yellow jackets do. And a new mower can be found for 150 bucks if that!

There are so many aspects to taking care of a lawn. When they are all done right, any lawn can look awesome and add value to a home. This makes me grateful that we have lawn services that help people have nice looking yards.
