    what are the average package rates? if i have customer that wants to pay for basic lawncare service from the month of april to september and have their lawn mowed, trimmed and edged weekly what are the average rates for a package deal like that? i figure for basic service (mow,trim,edge) for 6 months, weekly and its an average yard would be $960. any advice?

    we have a basic and premium service. basic (mow,trim,edge) starts at $30 and thats for a small yard. premium service includes all basic services plus organic weed control up to 4 times a year and fertilization up to 4 times a year. we have additional services such as mulch, flower bed design, gardening, small shrub care, gutters, etc. i need to know what the usual rates are if someone paid me up front for 6 months service april-september

    Most of my commercial accounts are like that. Annual rates are nice because it can help you budget. It also helps the customer budget. I only give discounts for prepay service though.
