Hi, just joined this website and I have a few questions about the Landscaping business. I live in the Central Florida area and would like to start a lawn cutting business here. There are lots of landscapers in this area, but I suppose there's always room for one more. I already have a John Deere 48" cut lawn tractor, a self-propelled standard lawn mower, a Ryobi gas powered wire-edger, an electric leaf blower and an 8x4 foot landscape trailer, so I probably don't need to buy anything. I would like to start getting business by passing out flyers in different subdivisions in the area. I would like some input from any experienced landscapers out there, as to how much should I charge for simple cutting, edging, grass clippings blowing...etc. for Small Lots (like the houses close together-less than 1/4 acre) Standard Lots (1/4 acre), Medium Lots (1/3rd to 1/2 acre), and Large Lots (1 acre and above)? In addition, how do the contracts work (weekly, bi-monthly, monthy, yearly)? Would anyone be willing to show me examples of them. I need to do this with a minimal additional cash outlay. Thanks for your answers and suggestions.
