I overseed lawns this time of year. A few customers want me to set up sprinklers on timers so it's automatic and they don't have to deal with it.
I'm looking for suggestions on how to charge for that -- them basically leasing my equipment -- the hoses and timers and sprinklers.

Thanks!

I would charge like you'll never see that equipment again. In advance. Or at least get a big deposit.

After that it's just a matter of equipment & labor costs.

I would go out and buy what is needed and it is theirs... maybe you could own the timers(possibly even the sprinklers) but I wouldn't be hauling a bunch of hoses around for people... that's just not cool at all... :)
