You can make money at a lower price but you want to run a company or buy your self a job you need to make enough money for days when you don't have work also

I do not price my trucks based on $100 a day for gas but I do have an hourly cost for all the expenses and it is not much different.
Do not install weed block from HD either as it is garbage compared to a nice heavy # 5 fabric. I do not use fabric under mulch. I use it under rock but not mulch. Just use more mulch to block the weeds.
$25.00 an hour is a loser game and you will not make it.
