Lowest price residential lawn

Just curious to know what your lowest price residential lawn cut is. Mine is at $25 per cut for a home. I am not talking about a double wide mobile home in a trailer park. I am not asking about the size of lawn , just the lowest priced. Thanks to all those who respond!!!

$25.00 not really worth your time to drop my gate for much less than that

I do one that is only a small front and side yard for $15. . . but it's maybe a 5-6 minute job, tops. The lowest full-sized lawn that I do is about $25, but my average is more in the $30-$40 range. . .

I won't mow for less than 30....other than a couple of people in the 25-29 dollar range that signed up when I first started and stuck with me, less than 30 is the minimum. Generally my lawns run 30-40 per weekly cut

Mine is set at 25.00, but I will make exceptions at my own discretion. I have one I do for 20.00, its a townhome in a tight neighborhood. I basically just trim around the house.

I have one at $26.00 that takes me 16 minutes from opening my door to hopping back in the truck. Everything else is in the $30-$90 range.

$20 for one half of a Duplex. about 2,500 sq ft. 10 min mow job.
I'll go as low as $25 for family but $30 is about norm on your average city lot.

I have one sorta of like that. About 16-20 min total, but the sweet thing is that I charge 40.00. Thats one of my best jobs.
