How much do you try and generate per customer

For a lawn mowing customer,do you try and make a certain amount per season per customer? Lets say you want to make for ex.$1,000.00 per customer. Lawn cutting makes say,750.00 do you try and sell 250 more in work?

The goal is 45x52+extra's throughout the year more like 3000 per customer per season not hard when you add weed control and fertilization and all the other goodies like leaves and stuff

Our area ,if you can get 25-28 cuts per season that's good.

There are advantages to living in the south, like year round cutting and landscaping

Hmm...kinda hard to say what you want to make per customer cause there are too many variables. I price properties for good profit and try to get all the extras.

I am all over the board with pricing, I'm sure cause at the start I turned down nothing and I still got plenty of those six years later. However, fertilization , weed control, tree cutting, mulch, and powerwashing all make that customer look allot more valuable when I run the numbers on them at the end of the year.

Never considered it in those terms.
As far as residential is concerned, it just a per event deal.

I completely agree.

I try to get as much as I can but no two properties are the same so the prices are all different.

try for 36 cuts x 30 minimum on residential, 30 being base price doing cuts/trim only. Spring/fall cleanups are considered add-ons along with anything else.
