My minimum is usually $45, sometimes if I have an elderly neighbor next to an existing customer I'd cut them a break. Average price is $55 which is competitive with most. I have 2 year round weekly accts one at $125 and the other at $150 that are the highest. Those are with 2 pinestraw applications and 2 hedge trimmings per year factored in. (also extremely loyal customers)
