I looked at a job today to clean up a residence. This same person awarded me a contract for his daycare a couple of wks. ago. He's having some sod installed at his hs. and plans to let me have his house for a contract and maybe a couple of rental properties also. His yard is about 1/2-3/4 acre and has a pool. Basically, the wife used to maintain it and it has been severly neglected for the last couple of yrs. They went nuts with the plant material. It's one of those homes where they seem to have two of every plant species in the world, flower beds everywhere-all around the pool and hs. and everything needs severe pruning. The yard will need mowing and some major edging to the flower beds + pulling tons of weeds. I'll probably suggest pulling out all the old straw and replacing with fresh materials. I plan to use one guy to help and predict us being there a full day. Any suggestions on price would be greatly appreciated.:)

You really need to price the labor cost, add profit margin and go from there. That is the way I price all my fall, winter and spring cleanups.
