It will be $ 25.00 to $ 30.00 . Yes its true , you may not believe it but if you realy think about and talk to any one in the business for any length of time they will tell you. I have been reading all these posts , pricing and professionals etc, and been sucessfull in the business for over 25 years , trucks have increased , insurance has increased , grass cutting sure as hell hasnt. The minimum charge in 1984 was $ 25.00 and we were turning work away . Today the minimum is $ 25.00 and every body wants to be a LCO . This year I sold my cutting accounts , concentrating on irrigation and general construction . The handwriting is on the wall. A 43 year old professional wont play the lowball games of a novice , plus there is a whole lot more demand for new houses and home improvement than grass cutting .
