What Is The Real Cost Of DIY Lawn Maintenance For Your Sydney Property?

Keeping your lawn looking beautifully smooth and green is a labour of love. And you might think that taking on this task yourself is a good money saver. However, considering the total cost of lawn mowing for your Sydney property, you may be surprised at the actual outlay.

In this blog, we will take a look at the different costs involved in having a lush, green lawn and compare this to hiring a lawn maintenance service to do this task for you instead.

Specialised Equipment

Keeping your lawn in top condition requires an array of expensive equipment (assuming you won’t be trimming your edges by hand!). Look at this list of items available on the market these days (although you don’t necessarily need every item.

  • Lawn mower or mulching mower
  • Edge trimmer
  • Leaf blower
  • Lawn edger
  • Lawn aerator
  • Broadcast spreader
  • Garden sprayer
  • Tools such as rakes, sprinklers, hosepipes and more

Time Commitment

Time is a precious commodity, and weekends spent on lawn care might not be everyone’s idea of a weekend well spent. Also, this valuable time could instead be spent with family and friends, enjoying hobbies and interests, or simply enjoying a relaxing weekend. 

Products And Treatments

If you check out the lawn section in your local garden store, you will see a myriad of lawn care products. You will find fertilisers, herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, pH adjusters and more. Not only do these products come at a cost, but using them incorrectly can be detrimental to your lawn instead of improving it. So, knowing which product to use and when is often a mystery.
