    I am looking to get into the lawn care business and have a few questions. The first having to do with price point. If I was looking to offer a 4 month lawn care service for residential customers, including one lime treatment one fertilizer treatment and about 14 cuts, how much should I charge? The second question is, how many average size yards (about ½ acre in size) would I be able to cut per week with a 3 person crew?
    Please note, the reason for the 4 month lawn care service is because that’s all that is needed here in Nova Scotia, Canada.

    $75 per cut...somewhere in there. Maybe $50.00 if its a neighboring property

    Price can vary drastically from region to region; it would be best for you to call a few compainies in your area for an estimate on your house.

    How much do you think for a yearly rate? I was thinking $500-$600 for an average house.

    The only way to find an accurate answer is to get estimates. You aren't even in the same contry as most of us.

    Ditto. Prices vary from town to town never mind country to country.
