Need some help here, did searches before about condo's but this is different. This condo development has 20 yards, each yard is postage stamp size (front yard has about 200sq foot of grass, one to two passes in between the houses and back yard is about 500sq foot and no trimming at all except around the house and driveway, in other words no trees or beds). Someone that lives there is giving me the scoup on what the current company charges roughly because the people don't like who did it last year and they dont have anyone set up yet and are looking for a more quality company rather then someone to bust it out and leave. Last years company was charging $145 per week for all 20 yards, about $7.25 a yard. Too cheap for me. From what I hear it only would take them 2-2.5 hours one guy cutting one guy trimming and push mowing to do it, now then you figure hourly and that is fair (not too far off for my area, its about 35-45 a man hour around here). I am thinking more on the lines of 12 a yard or $240 a week (alittle more but from what i gather the people are pains in the a$$'s so I figure the little extra will be since I'll take my time on the job to make sure its up to their standards. How do most of you guys price condo developments? Per yard, hourly? Any insight on pricing would be great. I figure for the size of the yards 10-12 dollars a yard would be plenty since it would take a total of 10-15 mins per yard, and since business isn't too well right now this would be a pretty good income for me, plus with mulch, shrubs and plowing it would be alot of good extra work too. What do you all think?
