Usually my or yourself's work is always good therefore that seldom changes.
So u charge the same price per k for a 3k lawn as you do a 30k lawn?
We have a price break as the lawns get larger.
I think every business does wether it's painting laying asphalt or lawn care.
Time and fuel is a huge cost if I can do 15 acres a day vs someone doing 150k a day that is worth a lot to me.
Plus larger lawns should help you increase your buying power and that helps even more.
We charge about $5.50 per k on a 10 k lawn. That is right where most everyone is in our marketing area.
We can't charge $5.50 per k on a acre. No way!
We are down to $3-3.50 on large lawns and making good money!
