Central florida prices for lawns

I have been doing installs and renovations mostly. I need about 25 lawn contracts to fill the cracks. Anybody care to help on pricing out lawns in central florida? Thanks

lowballers. At that rate, it's best to sit on an intersection and have a sign. You'll make more dough.

Sorry, just thought it was funny. Seriously, how can anyone make money at $80/mth for a residential??? HOW?
