not true. The bigger they get, the cheaper they get. Brickman mows for mid $20s here. We are doing all we can to hold to the low $30s for maintenance work.

I think the over head all depends on the equipment, and how efficient the worker is. A guy this spring complained that I charged 20 a hour for raking out his flower beds lol I am trying to be in the 40-60 range. Most guys in my area are 40 or less. I do not understand how they can do it when their gas mower suck 2-3 gallons a hour. Thats $8-$12 a hour in fuel. My diesels suck 1 a hour at the most. I know this is the best year I have had so far. More lawns in the same area so less fuel cost all around. I can see 60+ in more urban area's though. My prices change according to the skill and equipment level.
