    just some questions for anyone out here if they could give their input.

    whats the market like in these times? are there generally enough jobs? to many? or is it hurting not enough jobs? just want to get an idea please.

    what do you guys normal charge around here per lawn these days? base it off of size (certain cost per size) or normally just price it off time? i know what i used to charge as a kid but i would like to get a better idea of this. rather not under cut people and find myself on a hit list o.o;

    I charge 30 a lawn. 1/3 acre average price. I still have 25 for some lawns too. Depends where and who. I give great prices for seniors. They are almost always 25 unless lot is very large and alot of wacking then 30. Front yards only are 25 wont unload for less. Bi weekly 30, monthly 40. Calls after May are all 30 more if it hasn't been cut. At least double.
