Job Pricing!!!

When you experienced guys started out did you find it hard to figure out how to price jobs. Such as aerating, fertilizing and just lawncare? Thanx in advanced...

I was in the same situation when I first got started. You need to figure out how much you need to make and also what your customers are willing to pay.

Just add up your material costs, figure what you need to make per job or per hour to cover those plus business expences.
