I'm with you DA......when I think lowball I think scrub and when I think scrub it's not necessarily about prices. could be no insurance, no license or using home owner grade equipment.

You charge $25 a lawn?
Good luck to you and your buddy! I would go out of business if I charged that little!

well your a great example when I say the market varies from location to location. me and my friend are both from IN and we both run very successful businesses.
I've been at it now for 7 years and my buddy has been doing it for 13 years.
those are the min prices though. doesn't mean every lawn I have is $25. for it to be $25, I'm probably in and out in 30 min or less and most likely using a 21 incher or 36" walkbehind.
my average lawn is $32.
