Best of 2000: Best Low-Cost Lawn Care

    Jensen Maintenance
    (619) 287-4034

    "The basic package would be mowing and edging, trimming the bushes, fertilizing, weeding beds, and pulling crack weeds from the driveway and sidewalk," says owner Hans Jensen. The cost averages $25 per visit, though additional labor, such as sprinkler repairs and trimming flowers and large bushes, can increase the cost. "We also do brush-fire prevention. Cleaning up a canyon or a dry field bed, that has to be done to fire-department specs. We'll clear dry dead bushes and foxtails, set up a fire break below a property line, and do weed abatement." This service can run up to $300. Sometimes a customer needs 24-hour "emergency" response. "I had to get up out of bed and go solder a pipe that got cracked. But that's rare; you don't see too many lawn-related emergencies."
