    just wondering what everyone is going to be charging(rough prices/mins etc)

    last year i was getting :

    mulch $85/cubic yard delivered/installed
    mowing $35min- $44 average
    fall cleanups $300 average + hauling fees if required
    fall leaf pile pickups $100min, $125/load
    firewood $250/cord
    compact tractor work $80hr/$100 min

    if there is an service you do and would like to add it i would love to hear it!
    obviously some are rough prices, lawn sizes vary for mowing/cleanups etc mine are for .5-2 acre lots. just wondering what everyone charges.

    Thats fairly close to me.

    Mulch Installed at $80.00 per c/y installed.
    Mowing - $35.00 min for anything up to 7500 sq ft, then it goes up in $5.00 increments depending on the square footage.
    Cleanups and landscape maint - $60.00 per hour

    The feedback won't be very useful unless it's from other LCO's right near you... I mean I don't know what an 'average' lawn in your town is...5000sqft....3 acres???

    Right on. I live in the Midwest and I have had people on the east coast laugh at me when I told them I had a 35 minimum. They said I charged way to much and wouldnt get away with it over there. People in California tell me Im to cheap...

    spelt out for you in my orignal post, most of my lawns are from 0.5-2 acre size. obviously there will be some descrepancy due to size lawn, obsticle, state or region, im just looking for a ball park. rather the critizing my thread how about just list were you live and an approximate price. mulch is simple if you charge per cubic yard, how much do you get. thanks in advance

    seems about average for around here. Mulch is a tough sell @ $85/yd unless you're using premium stuff.

    I normally sell mulch for $65 or $70 per yard installed. But I suppose its all dependant on how much you are paying for the mulch.
