It doesn't matter what I charge. If you have a 2,3,4 or 5 man crew, my pricing wont work for you. I do like the $1 a minute rule. 32vld seems right to me.

But I guess if you had employee's you'd have your pricing figured out.
All equipment is wore out. <- Never mind. All equipment has been repainted and with new decals. It's like I have new mower's again!

<- That's how I feel at the end of the day.

About $75 is what we'll charge.

So would I be in the ball park to say

1/4 - 30-40
1/2 - 45-55
3/4 - 55-65
1 acre - 70-90

all involving light to medium trimming?
Do you have or plan to have employees? I would factor that in too. I would personally do the dollar per minute thing. Be fair to yourself!

Now this all depends on the level of services you provide: for the high end market I service, we charge $2 per minute. Granted we do exclusively maintenance contracts only and no "mow and go" accounts anymore. But you don't want to carve out your niche as being the "cheap lawn guy." If you are providing a quality service, you should receive a good wage for it

So what are your prices?

All I know is that I was never getting the above half acre property's last year. So i had to adjust my pricing.

It has improved my success.

Easiest thing to do is figure up how much you want to charge per hour based on costs per hour. Going by the acre is never a good idea unless you're bush hogging or mowing a field which is still based on hourly costs. We're at $75 an hour here with a $35 minimum for two guys.
