    I'm at $500 a wk for lawns, only 23 weekly and 2 bi weekly. about $33 bucks and hour, actually maybe a bit less than that.

    This is my first year, actually I'm only nearing the 2nd month lol of lawncare but I did about a month of spring cleanup before that.
    I realize I'm an underballer but you got to learn somehow to cut lawns and now I realize how much there is to learn. I'm quite happy dipping my toe in this field and I think I will be making some serious cash soon for fall cleaning and really have my act together next year.

    I will also be adversting hard for new lawn clients in a week or two (also window cleaning customers) and will be pricing them properly (or more properly) then I will raise prices on some of my current customers, I don't even care if I lose half of them.

    $1200 a week 33 full time 3 everyother week prices range from $30 to $65 for full timers and one of my everyother week account is $75. Wanna tip. If you see a house for sale with tall grass, CALL the realitor. You will get it, (unless the owners are really cheep) and you allso will make a great conetion for networking. My first year on my own and pulling in over $4800 a month mowing. Then add in side jobs $$$$!
