I am starting in business in North Louisiana in the spring, maybe a few before winter sets in, and was wondering what the going rates where around here. I talked to a guy at the lawnmower shop, and he said nobody was getting more than $35 for a residential lot in town, and a little more if you went out of town in to the country. I think he was full of it myself. Does everyone charge businesses more for the same amount of work? Does it require a license here?
