Neighborhood kid $10-15/hour, individual (likely no insurance) typically about $15-25/hr, organized, licensed and insured lawn care company typically from about $25-35/hr in cheap labor areas to $35-50 in urban areas.

Search the List for a couple of yard care or lawn mowing contractors in your locale with good ratings and reviews, then ask them to come by and give you a quote on your yard. Usually you should not pay by the hour - tends to drag the work out and no incentive to get the job done and one to the next customer. Better to get an initial cleanup and trimming quote, then a biweekly or monthly rate for maintenance work after that, with maybe a special charge for fall leaf raking and blowing and for spring cleanup after snow is off the ground.
