Every one that mows lawns for a living, parttime full time or for a hobby must charge 25.00 and up. If you do not have a standard price its not worth your time. Most of us pay anywhere from 300.00 to 900.00 for a 21'' mower 250.00 to 500.00 for a trimmer 150.00 to 500.00 for a blower fuel, oil pickup, dumptruck, car trailior or whatever you use I can go on and on and on but the bottom line is most lawn and landscapers are in high demand today and if a product or service is in high demand what does that tell you? DO i have to explan? just say you have 5 customers on the same street and you figure Ill only charge them 10.00 dollars each and say it takes you ten minutes to do each yard so you made 50.00 in 50 minutes now subtract your trimmer, mower blower truck and trailior depreciation $3.00 for mower, $1.50 for trimmer $1.50 FOR BLOWER STRING TRIMMER LINE THAT was used and this subtration should be used on every lawn you mow oh yeah lets not forget about the fuel you used so 50.00 - 6.00 on each yard and thats not including fuel in your truck to get there and to the next area or home so in reality you made 20.00 for 50 minutes not including loading and unloading. like i said i can go on and on about cost. so you can stick a $1.00 a minute up someones ass cause it dont work like that you might think so but your wrong so next time you go bid a lawn think again long and hard before you sale yourself short I know I have been there.
