    Hey,

    I have a quick question guys..

    What is your average charge for monthly maintenance for a customer? How do you charge for your monthly maintenance? You just calculate how many hours you think you'll spend there? ie) 2hrs for everything + disposal?

    Keep plants/shrubs/tree's neat.
    remove dead branches
    prune overgrowth

    Just some of the basic maintenance for monthly package?

    I presently have a few customers that are anywhere from $80 - 100?

    I think that it really depends on the property...number of plants, how big the lawn is, services you plan on offering, etc.

    The easiest thing to do is just break it down into how much you think that you are going to spend on each service, and then times that by the number of times you are going to do that service

    well, then I would break down how long you think its going to take you on each shrub. Trees you should only have to prune once if that.
