I've noticed around here that I see a lot of add on services down here in Florida. Does anyone just mow? are there standard add ons that everyone expects? It just seems like all the companies I see down here are full maintanance. Any thoughts?

I have two companies

Simply mowing
mow, edge, line trim, blow
1/4 acre lot $25 weekly service billed to credit card
add $5 for corner lot
add $5 for canal front
add $7.50 for EOW service
add $5 if between 1/4 and 1/3 acre
no lots over 1/3 acre

Gross lot size. I don't care what the turf dimensions are unless there is no house.

No other stuff done by this company.

Second company
Precision Lawncare

Basic package:
Mow, edge, line trim, blow
ornamental trimming
weed control
fertilizer / turf pest control
irrigation maintenance

ala carte

seasonal color
mulch

Starting at $225 per month

one time items
sod
general clean up
tree trimming
tree removal
inside pest control
Irrigation repair
grading
landscape installation
Landscape removal
bobcat work

AND no I don't do all those things myself. I sub stuff out. But it all goes through my company and the client just wants it done with one phone call, so I do it and they pay.

Round up at $5?????

3 oz per gallon mix rate

cost of chemicals per application
$.64

labor 15 minutes billed
@ $30/hr $7.50

Just an illustration, you are barely covering your costs / losing money once you figure in overhead and equipment.
