    I have heard of companies going by square foot but most do not….well, unless you are applying a material or something to that affect.

    We charge by the hour and sometimes tack extra amounts on depending how complicated a property is….like extreme hills, an area that collects lots of trash, swimming pools or landscape ponds that grass can get in, and lots of landscaping.

    This post shows how to come up with your hourly amount to charge….please don’t forget….i just used some numbers off the top of my head. You will have to figure in your amounts but the formula stays the same….. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=301525
