Not around here (New England). The kids just don't want to work. The
last quote I got from a "pro" was $70 to do my lawn which I can do with
a propelled mower in an hour and a half. So that's about $50 and hour,
considerably over the minimum wage.
Depending on the size of the yard and how much you're willing to spend, this
dictates what mower to get. For up to 1/2 acre, a regular push mower is
fine (with self propelled drive) Craftsman, Lawn Boy or Snapper with a 22"
cut. I prefer a mulching blade, not much of a clean up and you don't have to
worry about getting rid of the clippings.
For larger yards a rider or walk behind works well. 42 - 48" cut. Troy
Built, John Deere ect.
Regardless of what mower you get, proper maintenance is key to keeping the
mower running. Check the oil before you cut, change it when necessary; tune
ups at least once a season, and keeping the blades sharpened.
I've had my Craftsman for 6 years and it starts every time. If and when it
dies, I'll buy another, for me its reliable, I cut my grass on average every
