When estimating mowing prices you have to think about more than just the time to actually perform the service, namely your windshield time. If a $40 lawn takes you 30 man minutes to cut but, it takes you 5 minutes of drive time off your route and you've got two guys in the truck well now you've got 30 + 10+ 10 or .83 man hours which now takes you from $80 a man hour to $48. The size of the property is also a major factor. A large property can be charged at a lower rate because you have more production time in comparison to a small property. So $60 to $80 per man hour is not really what it first appears. Don't cut yourself short.
