    I have done about 50 estimates (48 single family and 2 townhomes) which included weekly mowing among other services in the past month. To date I have 7 signed contracts that include mowing. Two of them are for townhouses on very small lots. I charge $30 for a townhouse which is my minimum. The townhouse owners didn't blink when I told them my price. Many single family homeowners want me to mow 5 to 10 times the turf of the townhouse for the same $30. Why can't everyone be like the townhouse owner who understands the cost of getting something done?
