In our area (relatively but not excessively high labor cost area) - for independent one-man outfits about $10-15/hour, for commercial lawnmowing outfits about $15-20/hr per person - so typically $25-35 per mowing visit for a normal sized yard, including weed-whacking and blowing the debris off the drive afterwards. More for heavy spring or fall pickup cycle where there are a lot of twigs/branches or leaves to handle.


My recommnedation - Search the List under Lawn and Yard Work and ask a couple of well-rated ones to come bid your job (assuming this is for continuing service) - and have them bid by the mowing or year, not the hour - that way you are paying for exactlyi the service you want rather than labor time, which can really vary by the vendor and may invite "milking" the job.


One thing to be careful of - are they collecting the mowing cuttings or letting them drop, and if collecting and bagging are they leaving the bags for you to dispose of (at your cost/effort) or hauling them away - some of the low bidders do so by leaving the bags for you to pay the trash company to haul away (at typically $1-3/extra bag) so not really comparable to a company which hauls them away and disposes of them themselves.
