I am looking to get into the lawn care business and have a few questions. The first having to do with price point. If I was looking to offer a 4 month lawn care service for residential customers, including one lime treatment one fertilizer treatment and about 14 cuts, how much should I charge? The second question is, how many average size yards (about Ĺ acre in size) would I be able to cut per week with a 3 person crew?
Please note, the reason for the 4 month lawn care service is because thatís all that is needed here in Nova Scotia, Canada.

$75 per cut...somewhere in there. Maybe $50.00 if its a neighboring property

Price can vary drastically from region to region; it would be best for you to call a few compainies in your area for an estimate on your house.

How much do you think for a yearly rate? I was thinking $500-$600 for an average house.

The only way to find an accurate answer is to get estimates. You aren't even in the same contry as most of us.

Thats $500-$600 for the whole season by the way.........I may have to just do what dubleedge said and just get a few quotes on my own lawn.

Ditto. Prices vary from town to town never mind country to country.
