I was thinking about charging $4500 a year as well but do you think I should charge $4800 instead or is it fine where it stands?
I would charge the going rate for the area. We do a few propeties in the middle high end neighborhoods. A little bit bigger than the average lawn @ $50 a cut. We only get about 30 cuts a year here so If you can get in that place for that you are doing a great job.
By the way, has it cooled off down there yet?
