BILLZ, what were you charging for watering at the condo's? I did a dry run and it will take around 1.5-2 hours each time. Thanks.

is this a good time to follow the $1 per min thumb rule? if so, then just figure $90-120 a visit....

bill them a bill for the season @ $6,000-8,500....

$90 X 3= $270 X month (4weeks)= $1,080 X 6 months (April-September) = $5,940= $6k

OR $120X 3= $360 X month (4weeks)= $1,440 X 6 months (April-September) = $8,640= $8,500 ( maybe round down and give them a free water visit, if they pay cash up front b4 the seasonal of visits start)


$120

I feel it is one of those services that if u charge to much there is no chance in getting it. You'll have to come up with the minimum u would ever want to get and go with it. Figure out if the minimum meets your standards and still gets you enough money in pocket.

With the towns that water the flowers around here, the employees are hourly salary and regardless of what they are doing still need to be doing something.
