    I've spoken with a guy that has been in business for awhile...He spoke with a finnincial advisor and was told to raise the minimum to $200/month-----he lost some clients, made more than he did before, and worked less until he grew huge a few years after doing so!!! My minimum is $80/month right now...I want at least $120 for each one...I have over 60 year rounds and many seasonal and other jobs...

    Any experience on this?

    What are your minimums???


    I live near atlanta.

    80 a month seems really cheap! around here i think the min a month is 110! and 45 is really cheap! but the yards must be really small!

    $25.00 is my minimum charge per cut--and I am talking about in-and-out 10 minute jobs. Most are around $40.00 per cut. $200.00 a month is easily attainable if you apply chemicals too.
