    Do yall have a minimum to lower your gate? Mine is $40 and you would not believe the people who frown on that. The good thing is I dont get any cheepies this way they are just glad to have good service.

    Mine is 25 bucks.

    If it's something that costs less than that I just won't do it.

    I only have one weekly account that is 25 per week though. Small(I mean REAL small) front and backyards. Takes me 18 minutes solo to mow, trim and blow.

    I told you wrong I have 1 widow i do for $30, but the rest are $40 and above. As for the name of my business its just that, a name it does not mean i work for free. I will tell you i have very good customers, with 28 full time accounts in my first year. If someone asks me for a bid I always tell them my minimum is $40 and most of the time that is ok.

    Fiveo you said yours is $25 for 18 minutes, but almost everything around here is 30 to 40 minutes thats the reason for the $40 charge, Like I said my minimum is $40 because 99% of the time it will take at least 30 minutes.
