Prices

So what does everyone charge for the lawn service. I charge $30.00 per yard front/back trim/blow for yards under .20 acre! Just wondering if I'm unreasonable or average.Thanks in advance to all who answer!

Sounds like you're right in there. At least you're not charging $20-$25/acre like some of the ppl. on here.

NW Ohio

Toledo area is pretty depressed, direct hit from the automotive industry

id have to charge 25..... 30 in some nicer communities in the area....

i can get 35 or 45 an acre here, that seems to be the threshold of pain for people.... but if you can do an acre in a half hour.... and trim in 5 or 10 min, that puts me in the buck a minute category.....
