Here at Lawn-Mat Lawncare Services we have never had to charge any sort of trip charge for time or fuel for reasonable distances. However, with the looming $5 a gallon gas again, it is a must. The high cost of fuel is cutting deep into our livelihood, as gasoline is at the core of our expenses, gasoline to power the mower, gasoline/oil mixture to power both the line trimmer and blower. And gasoline to power our vehicles to get us to the site. A minimal charge may be charged when any lawn is considered outside of our normal South Austin territory or in excess of 10 miles. Charges are subject to change or may not even apply. If you think that you might be charged for trip/fuel, please Contact Us.
