A good price for a regular lawn.

I live in Conway, AR. I am starting a lawn service. What is a good price to mow a lawn, just mowing?

If you would have read my title it said a regular lawn. Meaning flat, small with few trees.

Are you going to be licensed and insured? How big are your mowers? How much money do you need to live? Do you have any expected recurring costs? How are you going to bill your customers? Do you have any special software you need to buy? What are you going to pull your mowers with?

There are 1,000 different items that go into figuring your costs. You can't begin to know how much to charge if you don't know your costs. No 2 LCOs have the same costs so how can you expect to know how much to charge by asking here?

Claws,
What is your standard rate per hour? What is your mode of cutting.......pusher, ZTR, belly mount?? How many obstacles are you facing on this lawn and are there hills?
After you have done a few different lawns and learn the time needed for each, then you can factor in your hourly-base rate for a particular lawn..
In Arkansas you do not have to charge tax on mowing unless you are selling a product with it and of course, unless you are doing commercial and industrial properties.

OHHHHH... a regular lawn $84 here. Some guys get $85 though. All of our regular lawns are at least 75,000 square feet with 12 trees, 2 kidney beans, 1 100' stone wall and a 20 degree incline on the 21,000 square foot front lawn. People pay weekly and we are all rich. Any more questions?
