Default In Need of Lawn Care

I finally got up to my house in Gunstock Acres and was horrified to see the state of my lawn. I don't know why I thought it would only be slightly overgrown at this point, but I assumed the grass growing would slow down along with the rest of life these days....
I need a reliable person who is willing to cut the grass for me as I simply am not up to the task; it would be a one time, possibly two time, job as I am closing on the house in 3 weeks.
If you know of anyone who is looking for work, please let me know. Thanks!

I think your best bet would be to watch for mowing/landscaping companies in your area as they should be working everywhere now.
Stop and talk to a foreman or worker and tell him of your plight.
With commercial machines they can cut your grass quickly and efficiently. It may cost you a bit more as they would be interrupting their schedule to accommodate you, but thatís the predicament you are in.
I have done exactly this when I mowed commercially.
Your next best option would be to ask a neighbor or neighborhood kids to mow for you. Do you have your own mowers?

You might check with your realtor (if you are using one) to see if they have a trade available to help you out. Most realtors have "a little black book" of trades for situations just like yours.

Good luck.

Thank you Hill Country and Camp Guy! Both excellent suggestions.

I actually got a very quick response from Paul from Tiny Tractor Projects LLC who is going to see it done. He has been extremely responsive and excellent about getting back to me when he says he will. Last summer I couldn't get anyone to even return a phone call, so he is already way ahead of the crowd!
