Hi, I plan on getting insurance and going legal (and "big") next year so I was browsing through our newpaper (windsorstar) and I can't believe what i'm seeing. Theres a company in here... well i'll just type out the add; PONDS & LAWN, Aerating & Fertilizing starting at $40.00 (would that be both or each?) Weekly lawn Cutting starting @ $19.95, free estimates blah blah 10% off for seniors. Now those are Canadian prices so 40 cdn = 33US and 19.95 cdn = about 16 something US. I am 15 and i already charge alot more then that! Im sure those prices are for small 5k sqF or less yards but i was thinking my minimum would be 35 cdn next yr for the small lawns and about 40 for fert and another 40 for aerate for tiny lawns... What do you guys charge for small 5k or less yards? im sure you dont charge 16 bux, hell! you would lose money! what do you guys think of this? are they low ballers or is that the going rate im going to have to compete with??
