    No place for lowballers in this industry. If you need some help being competetive, call me and I will help you figure out what you need to be charging to make a profit.

    QPC, the first thing you need to do is figure out what your costs are and break them down to an hourly cost. You need to include cost of equipment & depreciation - so you can buy replacements when they wear out, advertising, labor, maintenance, etc. Now add your desired profit margin to this, and you have an hourly cost. Figure out how long a yard will take and you know how much to charge. There are many threads on this topic if you do a search.
