    I just started a lawn service last year to help me pay for college, and have fairly good success by only word of mouth. Typically i bid a job for 30/ hr for any light landscaping (mulch.. digging beds out so on).. but i found myself getting a lot of customers asking me to weed..

    Generally do you guys bid the same.. 30/hr per person for that or less?

    I charge the #$%^ outta people to weed, Simply because were an older crew and all that bending kills us.

    it will never fail, weeding leads to other things, and when ya do it. after a couple of weeks they will call and say HAY THE WEEDS ARE BACK. and want ya to come pull them for free....
