Thanks for your help fellas....
Animals? I suppose there are a few party animals on here.
At any rate, make sure you get into the biz because you like to do it and do a good job of it. Don't do this out of desperation will only lead to problems down the road.
I would not put a fixed rate on lawns for mowing, unless the lawns you are targeting are very uniform in size. You really need to speak eyeball to eyeball with prospects to earn their trust and biz.
