    Couldn't be mine, I'm not in business until 2014. Getting geared up to start after I become legal in January/February.

    i would wait until april 1st. i mean it doesn't really matter but unless you plan to do snow removal you most likely won't get much business in the winter.

    I don't plan on doing any winter business, the plan is to register as an LLC & become insured around Jan/Feb so that way when I mail out my EDDMs for spring time I'm not lying and saying I'm an LLC when I'm not lol right now just getting all the ducks in a row.

    Hi Smallstripesnc,

    Sounds like you might be in ... NC? We are in Maine with shorter season, and might be higher hourly wise. We also get 2-6" deep leaves in the course of 3 weeks when Fall really hits.

    Our minimum is $200 for a FCU. Our per man per hour rate is $65-$75 per hour. We also have calculated that our FCUs tend to run 7-10 times our mowing price. So if a lawn is $30 to mow, it might be $210-$300 for FCU.
