anyone from Solon area, or work in Solon?.....reason im asking is i have a few lawns in Solon, and it is pretty high end. Much more high end than Canton area i know. Was wondering what is the going rate you guys are getting for mowing alittle less than 1 acre in Solon (high end residents)which is most of Solon i guess.LOL............i have an idea, but rates have got to be alittle more competitive there i imagine. Any help would really be appreciated

Yup I am from solon. Basically it depends what area of solon. But the basics still. 35bucks is min per cut. Obviously if your driving from canton i would consider if that would pay the bills. And if there truely highend Then your best bet would be to sell them on full matainance contracts so you can get all the bed work and stuff added in there too. But most places anywhere from 30-60 vary rarely is there a house here with more then 2 acres

Well pocket is hurting some from this winter, but i've lived here long enough to know i'm OK with how this winter has been, and OK with it almost being over...........I am really ready for spring and summer and the work to start this year.This is going to be my year man i am pumped, and cant wait!!........hope everyone has a great year also...........I know hardscaping pretty well, but i'm going to check into any seminars in the area to see if anything new is going on. Anybody know of any seminars off hand? (in Ohio i mean. I'm not wanting to traveling much to go to these..hahahaha)

I just went to the Techo-Bloc Showcase here in Columbus. It's worth going and checking out. They have a sweet product, I'm in to stamped concrete but love there paver and wall system. Our huge Home & Garden show is at the end of the month. I had a booth last year but they jerked me around on price this year, and no snow moneys.

This winter sucks, just like this business. lol

I'm not looking forward to mowing this year, I'm pushing to get enough work to have a crew mow and I can do landscape work just a couple days a week and focus on other stuff.
