    so your a member of local 571,what did you take a withdrawl and you must be just paying your dues each month.being a 478 member myself i took a withdrawl and i keep up my dues.as far as price i would figure out what you need per hour and then when you estimate a yard you could judge how long it takes to mow and trim and use your hrly to set price.dont drop your gate for less than $40.

    yeah, the economy is great. dont drop your gate for less than $40! good advise. you said your yards are a tenth acre and take 5 minutes each and there are 25 in a row so $40 each is just right.

    oh wait, you didnt provide any info. I drop my gate for much less than $40, but never less than $40/hr.

    walk each lawn individually and estimate how long it will take you and price it accordingly
