Excellent point. For some reason, some people think that everything should be $10/hr. cause the illegal day Laborers charge that. It's a fight you will most likely never win cause even when you explain cost of biz, etc etc, they still think 10/hr.

Can't think that way. Some jobs I would have lost my butt at 200. Never bid site unseen.

i usually double or slighty less than double a regular mow price for spring clean ups. i just blow out all the beds and under bushes getting the leaves and sticks in the yard then pick them up. i have a thatcher system too that save a lot of time. thats for my average lawn my bigger lawns/businesses usually get 2.5xish regular mow price.
