Just wondering what rates you guys pay? I think I have read that it is somewhere in the 3.5 - 5.0 % range, for basic lawn maintenance, nothing like going up trees or roofs.

Also not sure about unemployment insurance in MI, is that something automatically taken out of payroll and you don't have to get special private insurance for that?

Thanks for the replies!
I left you a p.m.

So is anyone still waiting to hear back from contracts as the winter has been a long and drawn out one? Seems like people are sleeping on their contracts for this coming season. I have a few that get re-bid in the fall that signed right away, but the ones I re-bid in Jan/Feb seem to be taking their time.

Man, what a winter. I usually start advertising hard the first week of March for spring/summer services. I think I will need to hold off a few weeks considering the unusual weather.

Is anyone else delaying their advertising campaigns in anticipation for a late spring/ mowing season?
