Okay kids, I have done my searches on here today and I'm done with THAT, thank you very much. I see many charge their rates by the hour. Does anyone charge by the job? I understand each job is different, etc., but I'm getting the business plan together and am figuring the on average charge to be $40.00. I can't conceive mowing for less than $30.00, and of course the sky's the limit. My average x lawns per week gives me my weekly gross. Any thoughts?
