Newbie seeking advice
I'm interested in starting a lawn care service, and have some questions regarding logistics. Based on some of the polls I've seen on this site, it appears that most people charge about $35 for a basic mow/trim service.
How do you work out the scheduling? It doesn't seem like it would make sense to drive too great a distance for a single $35 job. I can see how it would work if you had a bunch of jobs scheduled in a smaller area, but when you're just getting started you only have one or two jobs here and there, and they can easily be spread out across the city.
How did you deal with this logistical issue when you first got started and didn't have the volume? Also, for those of you who have larger operations now, how do you handle scheduling based on regions or zip code?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
