    anyone from Solon area, or work in Solon?.....reason im asking is i have a few lawns in Solon, and it is pretty high end. Much more high end than Canton area i know. Was wondering what is the going rate you guys are getting for mowing alittle less than 1 acre in Solon (high end residents)which is most of Solon i guess.LOL............i have an idea, but rates have got to be alittle more competitive there i imagine. Any help would really be appreciated:drinkup:

    Yup I am from solon. Basically it depends what area of solon. But the basics still. 35bucks is min per cut. Obviously if your driving from canton i would consider if that would pay the bills. And if there truely highend Then your best bet would be to sell them on full matainance contracts so you can get all the bed work and stuff added in there too. But most places anywhere from 30-60 vary rarely is there a house here with more then 2 acres

    I just went to the Techo-Bloc Showcase here in Columbus. It's worth going and checking out. They have a sweet product, I'm in to stamped concrete but love there paver and wall system. Our huge Home & Garden show is at the end of the month. I had a booth last year but they jerked me around on price this year, and no snow moneys.

    This winter sucks, just like this business. lol

    I'm not looking forward to mowing this year, I'm pushing to get enough work to have a crew mow and I can do landscape work just a couple days a week and focus on other stuff.
