I am making up my contracts for residentials for tomorrow. I would like to offer 2 different payment options, 1.) Pay for the season upfront and receive 10% off. This is great for people who travel, will get me some cash flow for start up, and less money to hunt down during the season. 2.) I would also like to have a steady cash flow throughout the season, but am not sure whether to bill monthly for lawn mowing or to have 3 or 4 equal payments. Monthly is a lot of paperwork. They are residentials so I think that people would rather not pay every month. I'm really struggling on pricing these lawns. The neighborhoods are your average neighborhood, most houses cost 225,000 to 325,000 and up. I am think 25 per cut. Does this seem low. I figure if you go for 50/hour adn the lawn takes 30 min, then 25 per cut. My neighbor got a contract for his lawn, 540 for the 30 week season. This would only be 18/cut. And it doesnt say anything about tax so that means hes not legit or tax is included, which is even less per cut. Sorry for the long post. Any suggestions?
