    Dan,

    First, welcome to lawnsite, lots of information here!

    Next, click on the search button above and there a couple hundred articles here that address your question. Before you can determine a price you must know your costs and how much money you want to make per hour/sq ft/acre.

    Lastly, typing a message in all UPPER CASE is considered shouting on a message board.
