I need at least 57″ of clearance through your gate to get into your back yard with my mower. This is typically a double gate but can be a wide single gate. If I need to use my walk behind, my price has to go up from a normal $40.00 (for the average lot) a cut to $45.00 per cut. This is because I need to send out special equipment for your yard and not everyone is trained in the use of the powered-walk behind commercial mowers. A normal cutting season lasts 24 – 26 weeks and this comes out to around $260.00 dollars a year in extra costs.
The cost to widen your gate opening varies widely depending on what type of fence you have but a good rule of thumb is as follows:
- Chain Link Fence around $225.00
- Wooden Fence around $450.00
- Plastic Fence around $500.00
- Iron Fence (needs to be bid)
Give me a call if you would like a bid on widening your fence gate opening.
I’ll come out and look at your fence opening and give you the best price I can to make it wide enough for our equipment.
