    Yeah, say for instance you're looking at a 3/8 acre lot, what I would say is 'this type of lot costs 35 dollars to cut and trim.'
    If they say yes, great.
    Otherwise, I would say 'thank you for your time' and turn around and leave.

    So, give them the price they requested, yes or no, and thank you.
    It's very simple.

    yeah id go with what the people are willing to pay....at 30 bucks or more...

    a dollar a minute for you to go around and cut, trim and blow, i gaurantee youre looking at least 30 bucks even for a little lawn

    when i bid on big jobs its still 55 to 75 an hour but thats usually with a helper
