We are looking at the Butler area to move to, is this a nice area for yard work? Also, how long is the mowing season up there? Down here it is May to Nov or so, but it can slow down in July and Aug do to drought. I too will be getting insured and doing everything right, this being said, what is a fair price for the average lawn up there? Down here I would say it is 30-40, but there is always a illegal alien who will do lawns for half this! And when customers see my price they say, "the last guy did it for half that", which I would always reply "then call him". But they couldn't because he was usually out of business.
Thanks for any advice.
Welcome! your pretty close on your numbers and times for mowing but we usually start mowing in april. last year it was the second week of march. butler isnt a bad area but southern butler near cranberry has more work and more money than northern butler. the farther north you go the farther apart yards are
