Be sure not to mow too often. If you mow too often, it's gonna hurt your grass.
Very small yard ... Currently paying $30 for mow, trim and blow.
I need a mowing on Wedndesday, October 12, 2016. Then none until previously scheduled November 3, 2016.
Careful of the black raspberry canes. They have thorns. Parts of back yard will probably have to be done with string trimmer. We're removing excess berry brambles and some of the raised beds. Hopefully this makes your life easier as well as ours.
Should include trim and edge. Need mulch too (separate item)
