    the average subdivision yards in my area are 100x200.
    how many could you do solo with a 60"great dane chariot and
    a 36"snapper gear drive per day?
    most just have a few small trees.
    most dont have fences.
    maybe 5 minutes of drive time to and from each lawn.
    im not in the business yet.will start in spring full time.
    those are the mowers that i have now to work with.
    i have talked to people and they say they pay $35.00 per much would you charge?

    If they are paying $35/cut, then go for $35/cut. Dont try for $25/cut, because you dont want to underprice your work when you are worth more than that.

    Working solo I think I could get 1 house done every 1/2 hour. (wide open houses only)I would definitely try to stay with the wide open lots so you can put that Great Dane to

    If you get two houses next door to each other that are the
    same size but one has a fence, the guy with the fence is not
    going to want to pay more than his neighbor.He knows the lot
    size is the same and the fact that he has a fence is not
    going to change is mind.If you take on this man`s yard expect to take 50% longer.

    If the homeowners are the ones telling you what they pay, I
    would stay as close to that number as you can.(assuming you
    trust what they are telling you).
