Based on my prospection of this question I do not have a price list. In the landscaping industry every job is different and if you had a price list you may take 2 hours at a job and make $100.00 or take 4 hours at a job and make $100.00. :laugh: Now I know some landscapers when they first start off sometimes have an hourly rate they charge the customer for extra services such as bush trimming, clean up, ect. But once you learn to estimate pretty good I would go by the job and not by the hour.:weightlifter:

I am interested in starting a Lawn mowing service in 2010. However I do not know what to charge. If there are general prices like cost per acre or cost per job as very generic rule, that would be great. Also what are some of your absolute minimum prices for the smallest jobs?

$25. min, and thats if I cut every 7 days, $30 for 10 days, $35 for 14 days.

If someone wants grass cut over 14 days it's $50 or go find somebody else to do it. I don't want Customers that want Grass cut once a Month if it needs it or not. :nono:

Depending on what type of grass the customer has I sometimes take bi-weekly customers although I don’t like to but I will not take every 10 day cuts. When starting out it may be ok but once you have a customer list the every 10 day thing messes you up.
