    I have an established lawn business and i am looking to expand. I want to add 50 to 100 lawn accounts in the Marlton area and looking to add 50 to 100 lawn accounts in the Bridgewater/Middlesex area. I am willing to buy some if not all the accounts if the price is right. I am also looking for other suggestions on how to go about expanding my business.
    Thanks in advance

    Mountain View,

    I cant really answer your question but you are about a half hr away and am curious what you charge for a yard. Say around 10k sqft. Probably about 30 minutes for one person to cut, trim, and blow, with a 36" mower.

    Im going to be charging $35 and was hoping to see what you charge to see if Im too low.

    Thanks for any help.

    In other words, he's looking to add between 100-200 accounts this year ... for only 2 years in this business i would be concerned about that kind of growth !! Quality of work and employees is worth alot !!
