I price each lawn by the amount it should be. That means if it's 31, 37, 53, 72 dollars that is what it is. If I need to raise the price I will raise it by the amount my costs have gone up.
Thing is I don't want to handle coins. So when I give the price I always round it to the nearest dollar. Say a $30 lawn is $32.59 with sales tax. I'll tell the customer that pays me cash the price plus tax is $32.59 just give me $32 even and I'll make up the .59c. Worth it to not handle the coins and most likely the price came out to $29.** and I just rounded up to $30 even any way.
Now my commercials pay me by check so that $30 + tax will be charged $32.59.
