    how much do you all charge to cut townhomes? about 2 weeks ago i went into a neighborhood with townhomes and put up business cards on peoples mailboxes. keep in mind these are small yards. takes anywhere from 10 -15 minutes to mow, weed eat edge. im charging between 8 and 12 dollars a yard. does this seem about right. ive gotten a lot of response. does this mean im not charging enough

    If you can make a profit on what you are charging then you would be doing okay... right?

    Try to make $1 per minute

    It all depends on what you need to make to cover your expenses and make a profit. townhouses can be some quick money if you line enough of them up together.

    if they are townhouses that 9 times out of 10 they are controled by an assosiation, which means they will most likly hire one company to to all of them. so if u see the same lines on all of them then dont bother to flyer...just a tip

    Ultimate - Why soooo low. You could increase your price by 50% and still be significantly lower. You're leaving a lot of money on the table!

    Wow, I say buck a minute here even if it's $10-$15 you'll still be the best rate around...$8 come on I know they are close but $2 more dollars each ain't gonna break their banks and it will help your bottom line especially if you get the whole street.

    THE REASON I AM CHARGING $8 IS BECAUSE THE LAWN SERVICE THAT DOES SOME OF THEM NOW CHARGES $9
