    Man your going to get hit here asking that question.

    What experience do have? Equipment? Just you or employees? Is this gig part or full time.

    What accounts do you currently service? Insurance? Tight route to expand to commerical or driving alot? You commmerical to say you have commercial? Reqlly just need more info.

    LS is helpful but alot of people always asking how, what, when, why and where and they get a few anwsers and now there KING of all LAWN care and start bashing with there experience. Best of luck!

    Enough that you can cover the costs of the job, your overhead, and profit.

    Hope that helps

    Make sure you allow a little extra time. Showing up and mowing for 2 hours is good, but it really takes you a little longer. Unloading, loading and driving to the site. Tight routes are nice, but hard to come by when you first start.
  7. there really should not be a problem its the same grass as on residential yards.

    You should try again with a well-phrased specific question.
