    I know this might wierd, but I have a customer that wants me to water his property on a regular basis, I told him it might be better to install a sprinkler system. Anyway what is a good price to charge to go and water his property. It is about an acre, I do the lawn so it would be to my best intrest. any input would be appreciated:cool2:

    If the customer is wanting you to come out regarly and pull a water hose out and set up a sprinkler and want you to move it around all the time they yolu would be WASTING YOUR TIME!!!

    Install a irrigation system or have someone else do it and be done with it.

    Just run the numbers. Calculate the hours of watering needed based on the property size and water supply. Unless you work for minimum wage, a sprinkler system is a better deal for the homeowner.

    I was thinking a charge something along the lines of "an arm and a leg" would be justifiable. Put in an irrigation system and then the time saved would allow for many other things to be done. Money WAY ahead in the long run. :)

    This is exactly what I suggested is to install a good sprinkler system, as always good info. :cool2:
