FAQ About Lawn Maintenance in Altoona

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

In the Altoona area, maintaining a lush, green lawn involves a number of things, from consistent mowing, to weeding, watering, fertilization aeration and more. The average lawn size here in Altoona is 10,874 square feet, which typically takes 98 minutes to mow if you do it yourself.

Additionally, you'll want to fertilize your lawn 7 times per year, with each application tailored to that time of year. It's also a good idea to get a soil test done once every 2-4 years to ensure your soil isn't lacking key nutrients. Professional fertilization in Altoona averages about $51 per application, and includes spot weed treatment.

Aeration is a process that relieves compaction, helps grass establish roots, and allows air and nutrients to reach the soil. Ideally, you should aerate once per year, every three years at the very minimum. Despite it's importance, only 3 percent of Altoona homeowners get aeration. Aeration in Altoona costs $126 on average, but depends on lawn size, and should be done in spring or fall.

Finally, watering is critical. You'll generally want to water in the morning before 07:07 or in the evening after 20:06 so the water does not evaporate. Altoona does not have watering restrictions.


How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed in Altoona?

While the average cost of grass cutting in Altoona is $38.11, the price depends primarily on lawn size and mowing frequency.

Here is the average price in Altoona by lawn size:

  • 1/8 Acre: $36.5
  • 1/4 Acre: $45.5
  • 1/3 Acre: $45.5
  • 1/2 Acre: $61.2

Here is the average mowing price by frequency:

  • Weekly: $30.87
  • Biweekly: $42.68
  • Monthly: $46.87

Two other factors that can increase price are corner lots and gates. In Altoona, 65% of homes are on a corner lot, and 47% of homes have backyard gates.


Can I get fined for not cutting my lawn?

First, you'll have to check your Homeowners Association rules. In Altoona, 57% of homeowners are part of a HOA, and most HOAs have restrictions on grass and overgrown bushes.

Kelsey, the guys that came to work on our lawn were very professional and they did knock on the door to let us know that they were here. We appreciate that. Everything looks great. We would like them to lower their lawn mowers a little bit next time so that the grass will not need to be mowed as often. Let's leave it scheduled at this point for next Monday. And then hopefully we can go to the every other day every other week. Thanks.
