I think there would be a lot of time involved to get the lawn mowed completely, and the sheep wouldn’t discern grass from flowers or plants you wanted to keep. They used to do it for the White House lawn back in the day, but they also had to provide them with food (I don’t know much about it, but I’ve seen a few horses eat an entire overgrown summer over just a few months).
If you had the space and the city allowed it, it would make more sense to have a goat, sheep, or horse to eat your grass on a regular basis instead of getting a hired one, though you’d have to supplement its food…but I don’t think it would be economical considering the time spent to haul the sheep around to place to place.
