    Hello, I just started my own Landscaping Maintenance business. I have a property management wanting me to do a 1 time clean up. I'm not sure on how much to charge it will take between 4-5 hrs. to do this job. They used to have a maintenance man doing this place but all he did was mow, edge, & blow. So this place is all over grown weeds, bushes, trees, planters everything needs done. What would be a fair price to charge them. I was thinking about $450.00 or does this sound to high or too low. I will also be doing the weekly maintenance on this property after this first time cleaning at $150.00 a month. Please I need some help on prices to charge!!! I have over 20yrs. exp. in landscaping and maintenance but no clue as how much to charge for my services. I don't want to cut myself short. One more thing what is a fair price to ask for an hourly rate. :confused:
