Last season here in a wealthy town in Massachusetts I was charging $60 for mowing(solo) and $35 hrly for landscape work ie: mulching, pruning, edging etc. I was probably right in the middle of the pack with my rates for the area, and quite a bit less than the big companies around here. So to me your rates sound decent.

As I mentioned, these are AVERAGE rates. I have one that takes me 2.5 hrs and I charge $85 for that. Thats only $34 hr. Im not looking for a MS degree in business and accounting answer. Just a simple andswer to a simple question and you answered it. What does it cost YOU to mow a yard? Simpl as that.

Great discussion.
