    Hi all,

    I'm new to this site and the lawn care business. I've been doing lawn care for 1 year. I don't have the equipment for large contracts right now but here are a few pics of a clean up job I did last year. ANY suggestions and advice in the business are welcome. The lawn was AWFUL on these pics so the pics don't show stripes or anything.

    I think you did a fine job for just starting out. It went from being a jungle to park material. Good luck with your biz and welcome to Lawnsite! :waving:

    Thank you! I just used regular lawn equipment, lauper (sp), shears, saw and some gloves LOL and a 22" Toro push mower. I only charged $200 for this job. I know that's probably not enough though. What would you have charged? It took 5 hours front and back.

    Women can do just as good of work as men most of the time. Just make sure to always provide excellent work and soon people will not doubt you anymore.

    You said it took you 5 hrs. 200.00 bucks. thats 40.00 per hr. so I'd say you did ok. Did that include the time it took you to haul away and dispose of the debris? From your pics, I'd probably tried to get 300.00 to 375.00 including removal and disposal. But again, you did ok for 40.00 per hour.
