Sounds like you're right in there. At least you're not charging $20-$25/acre like some of the ppl. on here.

Toledo area is pretty depressed, direct hit from the automotive industry

id have to charge 25..... 30 in some nicer communities in the area....

i can get 35 or 45 an acre here, that seems to be the threshold of pain for people.... but if you can do an acre in a half hour.... and trim in 5 or 10 min, that puts me in the buck a minute category.....:cool2:

florida, resort area, retirement area, lots of financially secure people.... 40 bucks for a small lot.....

my brothe inlaw pays me $30 to cut and trim there yard in are small town.when i was there wednesday had a older woman come up and ask what i would cut hers and there open lot for.hers you have to trim more because of all the flowers,maybe two passes with rider.the open lot is maybe 5 min trim and the rest wide open.told here 35 for each because they are the same size as my other there.out of 25 people on this street they have been there 30 or more years and it looks like i will be getting most of them to.it takes about 45min to do each one.
