Why I stopped cutting my lawn.

Growing up, I always thought people who hired a “yard guy” were rich, lazy or both.

The idea of hiring another human being to mow your grass just seemed ridiculous.

For the first 8 years of my marriage I did all the yard work at the Acuff compound. It’s really less of a compound and more of an estate. A micro estate.

But then something weird happened. I started to do freelance writing and consulting. One Saturday after spending two hours killing myself in the yard with allergies that were donkey strength, I did some math.

I realized two things:

1. I could make more hourly than it would cost me to pay someone to mow my yard. If I took those two hours and helped a client, I could make a lot more than the $40 it cost to have a yard guy.

2. I travel some. If I’m not writing and working with clients, I’d rather hang out with my wife and kids.

It ended up being win-win. (Though the Michael Scott “win-win-win” eluded me.) Either I made more money by not mowing it or I got to spend more time with my family.

There are going to be situations as you hustle with your dream that you need to do the math. Can you make more than $20 per hour on your dream? Is your time worth more than $20 per hour? If you have the money, put up the lawnmower. It’s time to hire someone else to do the yard hustle. You’ve got other things to work on!

    So tough to do for guys like me who grew up in a DIY house in a blue collar MA town. But so true. It’s a great way to spend time working on business and family. We just got a new house and I’m thinking of hiring a yard guy too for the same reasons. Once the 3 feet of able melts of course.

    I was given a riding mower and so cutting the grass doesn’t take that long anymore. However, this is making me think about what is taking time away from what is most important. Time to cut some stuff out.

    This reminds me of managerial economics. If it takes me one hour to do something and a company pays me $100 per hour to do it and Joe can do it for $30 an hour and it takes him two, the company is better off having Joe do it.

    Harvard Business School did a piece that showed that Tiger Woods could pay something like $2.7M a week to have his yard done and make more money (net, after taxes) if he did a promo spot for a company instead of yard work. Why? Because he makes like $5M for those.

    That being said…yard work is my sanctuary and one place where I fill up on information and generate ideas. I actually miss it this time of year, although it is replaced lately by snowblowing. It’s also great exercise. I get out in the sun for 4-5 hours and love it. Most times, Tara and Aracelli come out to help, so it’s a family thing.

    So 75% of the time I have my iPod in, podcasts playing and I am generating ideas for my business, which makes me money in the long-run. And the other 25% is family working together time.

      I cleaned houses in college so I could buy books and have some spending money. Now I have someone clean my house. I am willing to give up other non essential items to have my whole house clean on the same day. I do like knowing that I am also creating a job for someone who like me who needs it. Not to mention that as moms there is always something that needs to be cleaned up.

    I hate yard work. So this concept helped me a few years ago be more ok with outsourcing. I’d rather do others things (not just work, but also be with my kids), instead of spending an hour-plus doing stuff in my yard each week.

    Plus, as someone else mentioned, I get a chance to give someone some work. Most recently, I’ve been able to give one of my football players $25 each time he cuts my yard. Takes him about an hour, and he did it twice a month last year. Win-win.

    I’ve had people say “It’s not worth it for me to as I make more….” That’s all fine IF you actually are doing something with the time that it would take for you to do the . If you aren’t billing, or spending time with the family then it becomes a simple “I don’t want to do that” choice.

    My husband got me on board with that concept a few years ago when I first started freelancing – Lawn mowing was one of the first, but I also look at grocery shopping and other conveniences from that angle – for example, if I buy pre-cut veggies/fruit or pre-cooked items from the store, I know I’ll eat and use them right away, but if I buy them whole, I have to spend time cutting them up, cooking them, etc. it’ll take me forever to use them, they’ll go bad, etc.

    Of course, the trick is actually using that time to work or spend more time with family, not just see it as more “free” time.

    To this day, the smell of freshly cut grass brings fond thoughts of my father. We were busy playing outside, anyway, and there was something comforting about knowing he was there in the yard and my mom was in the garden. My parents have always done their own gardening and enjoy it. I would never want to take that away from them and I’m sure it helped them keep an eye on us. Your advice makes sense if someone dislikes the yard work, but for many it is a joy and a comfort. Now if you want to tell me to hire a cook so I don’t have to be in the kitchen, that’s advice I can get behind!

    It’s hard for guys to give up that part of their identity, especially if that is part of their worldview. If THE MAN is the person that does all the “DIY” projects and yard work is one of them … then somehow they are less of a man if they don’t do it. People don’t have a problem paying to get their hair cut (except the few that are on this post that will comment, “I don’t pay to have my hair cut”)… but most people don’t mind paying to get their hair cut. Your grass is the hair of your yard. Get it cut. … Also… the cost of keeping up your mower, gas, time, trips to the Home Depot add up. Just pay to have your yard’s hair cut. It doesn’t make you less of a man… (no matter how hard you hide behind the premise that you LIKE cutting the yard.)

    My husband cut grass all through high school and into college as a side job. He had up to 30 regular accounts at a time and sometimes hired buddies to help him with his workload.

    The allergies are what got me when I would do it. Let’s see you have a micro estate, I used to have a pico (look it up) estate that would take me about 45 minutes to cut and bag the grass. After that, I would shower and then lay on the sofa for about 6 hours trying to get the energy back. A guy at work decided to start a lawn business at a flat rate. Pay <$90/month for about .5 acre yard at my new house and he does a much better job!

    Several people have commented that Jon’s idea here is okay “as long as” you’re making good use of the time saved.

    Um, no. It’s just okay, period. We are called to be good stewards of the money with which God has entrusted us. There’s a whole lot of gray there, dependent on each individual families circumstances, and how God reveals “good stewardship” to those individuals.

    I pay to have my house cleaned each month. I could do it myself, but I hate it, it takes me far far longer than a professional, and we can afford it. We’re supporting a local business, being part of our community, opening our home to guests without the stress of dust removal, and just living life in the way we think is wise. If God wasn’t okay with this, he’d tell us. It’s stewardship, not black/white right & wrong.

    I have a housekeeper for the same reason. She comes every other week, and cleans my house for $120. It usually takes her about 4 hours.

    Here’s why:

    1) My wife and I hate cleaning
    2) My wife and I make more than $20/hour in our business
    3) Even if we are not producing income, this is time we could spend doing fun things
    4) Our housekeeper is better and faster than we are at cleaning houses. It would take us 6-8 hours to do what she does.

    It’s an easy decision.

    You know what though? I like ironing. I am more than happy to spend time on laundry day ironing my shirts. I spend the time watching something on TV, or listening to a podcast, and escape, just me, my shirts, and my iron.

    But I don’t blame anyone at all for having shirts done at the cleaners for $1.99 each.

I don’t like feeling like a nag or having to ask to get it done when he keeps putting it off. This isn’t to blame him–he avoids it for the same reasons listed above. So the price of peace in our home is a lawn care service, and I’m happy to spend the money.

Another point is that there are also people with aspirations of owning a landscaping/lawn business and you’re helping them achieve that which is pretty cool. No allergies for you and a person gets the satisfaction of making a lawn look beautiful or earning a quick buck.

    I despise yardwork, and get very sick in the heat. Girls *could* do the grass, but don’t. Husband has horrible allergies- so to work outside, it takes way too many allergy pills, ending with Benadryl, so then he sleeps all day if he’s not wheezing and gasping for air. Plus, he usually throws his back out, so that’s $20 for the chiropractor plus a lost day or two from allergies- not even counting the yardwork itself.

    We actually save money and get more done indoors by paying someone to cut our grass for us.

    My neighbor gives me a $50. gift card per year to care for her front and back yards. It began when her mom had alzheimer’s and I can understand that, but her mom has been in a home 2 years, yet she doesn’t touch her yard (right next to my townhouse). On the other side of my house a new neighbor moved in. The weeds are a foot and half high and it’s spreading onto my lawn. I saw a municipal worker stop, take photos and go in to talk to him, but he only cleaned up the back yard once. Not the front. I don’t get it. Someone in back must have complained about mice. I’ve seen other neglected lawns in the neighborhood, always vacant properties or young adults. I’m a writer (as it appears the new neighbor is) yet I take time out to keep the neighborhood a nice place to live. I also wonder why people with dogs don’t arrange for their poopers to do it on their own properties instead of mine. Okay. Thanks for the opportunity to vent :~)

    How about you just don’t mow your lawn or have a yard guy do it. That way you get your time back and you don’t have to pay him.

    Real Men cut their own lawn. Period. End of sentence.
    Only lazy, elitist shits PAY others to do it. Know why? Because they think they are ABOVE operating a lawn mower (much less a push one!) and they believe that lawn servicing is for PEASANTS and the working class. They believe that’s their Place in life to SERVE the upper (lawn owner) classes.

    I know what I’m talking about because I live in a town raped by Right Wing Authoritarian Republican a-holes who moved in, destroyed the forests, put up wall-to-wall McMansions, and hired everyone imaginable to do every imaginable (and unimaginable) service for these lazy shits.

    The town is Old Tappan in NJ. Check it out sometime. It should technically now be called New Tappan because the Old is long gone along with my best neighbors.

    They play an elitist game of having these clowns over Every Week to spend Hours going around in circles with back pack gear on making droning Noise and spewing fumes everywhere. If one neighbor has them, the Others All Follow Along to prove their worth. You should see these clowns with their trailers parked everywhere–it’s an obstacle course just driving around them now. They walk around in circles blowing the same leaves around over and over again wasting time and gasoline (I guess if One misses one the others will grab it but it doesn’t work that way!).

    It’s about Prestige and Power. When you think about it I can appreciate and understand people who cut their own lawn obsessively–at least it’s something of a hobby and challenge, not a matter of keeping up with the jonses and proving you can afford to waste money on wasteful butthead services!
