I had an idea today while I was trimming a client's sable palms. I live in FL where we mow year round, but only every week 7 months of the year. In the winter I was thinking of marketing a palm trimming service. This would help me fill the empty days that I am not mowing in the winter. It would also help me get in good with the potential customer. It will help me get the customer's confidence in my work, and I am sure I will be able to sell some yearly lawn maintenance contracts. My question to you is this: How much do you guys charge for trimming an average size (15-20ft) palm tree? I charged the customer today by the hour, but 99% of customers would die if they knew my hourly rate. I was thinking about $10-15 dollars per palm. Tell me what you think, or don't think!
