LD:" I’ve seen so many lawn service trucks and trailers with lawn equipment on seems there are a lot of people too darn lazy or unwilling to cut their own grass. "

I cut my grass for years and years. And cut grass growing up in NJ..... when I lived in VA, I had no grass to cut......either on my hilltop in Lynchburg VA or at the townhouse in Arlington...... (townhouse corp cut what small areas of grass there was there).....

When I moved to TX, I cut my grass for a while, then was traveling a lot after I retired. Here you have to cut grass every week in summer. Hired someone to do the front/side and I would do the back inside the fence. Did that back grass for a long time, then it got to be a hassle as I traveled......

After 20 years of cutting the back grass, I paid the front mowers to come inside back fence. Wow - an extra $5 for that. Hmmmmm...... got rid of lawn was 25 years old....more hassle than it was worth. For $20/month savings......

Yeah, I pay $80-120 a month for folks to cut my grass. Can't take my money with me.

I also pay for someone to do the pool. Nice 'salt system' that keeps it clean, and if I go away for 3 weeks, I don't have to worry about coming home to a swampy pool. Another $100/month during the summer.

the roads are full of lawn service trucks around here.

My neighbors do their own. Well, think west neighbor now has lawn service. No fun cutting grass at 95F and intense sun in TX......and later near 100F.....
