Hi guys, I am up here in minnesota, I am pricing my first spring cleanup, I went an looked at the property and it is around an hour to mow with a 48" deck john deere rider. I am estimating around a 3 hour cleanup. I am wondering If i can get any ideas on what to charge for a spring cleanup. It looks like some light raking around the edges, and basically just going over the lawn and bagging up the leaves, there isn't a whole lot of leaves on the lawn, some areas no leaves, some areas have leaves just enough to cover the grass. It will be a one time 30 mile round trip, so I am figuring it will cost me 10 to 15 dollars fuel cost for truck and mower. I don't have any payments on lawn equipment or any kind of overhead etc. I am just a solo guy doing this on the side. I will be hauling the stuff to my house for a compost pile. Any ideas on pricing would be great. Thanks Also any ideas on fall cleanup with the lawn being covered in leaves?
