    Hey I am from Michigan and I need some help in starting my own lawn care company next summer. I need help with the fundamentals. For example how much to charge, how to bid and give estimates to the customers, billing etc. if anyone from Michigan that is willing to show me that would be great just let me know.

    I just think that it takes a lot of experience over time to price something. I feel that there isn't a right or a wrong way, only your way. And once you figure it out, it may take some years, you will be a happy person

    Just look at the size of the lawn, the person you are giving the estimate too,and what you are willing to except. You may even get additional referrals. Do it with bulk
