    I just started my business this year and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how much they charge in this area. I already spoke to one of the lcos and he charges $70 per mower hour. Minimum of $35. I already have a few yards that I did last year at $35 each and I recently aquired some more equipment. Just wondering. Didn't want to be a lowballer.:usflag:

    It could depend greatly on what part of TX you are in. Central TX is a big area with vastly different income classes, from the Lakeway and Westlake area to say.... something not so high class elsewhere.

    What you charge is dependent upon your overhead - not someone else.
    Different socioeconomic classes are a multiplier or detractant governing final price beyond your profit margin.
    Out of curiousity, where are you located?

    If your in the DFW area you might just want to focus on business properties, there is to much competition around here. Most cuts go for $20 bucks and some will go as low as $15.

    I am in Burnet/Marble Falls. Most of the companies in Marble Falls are higher (Horseshoe bay area is full of high dollar homes). We did a pretty large yard last week, and it took us 18 min from the time we dropped the gate until we left. She paid us 40, and said that was cheaper than the last company who did it.
