I apologize for the long post. New user to the site, but have been reading for sometime. I have a small lawn business going in NC. Been doing it part-time for 3 years while still holding down a regular job (gotta have that regular income and healthcare). I am hoping to move into it full-time within the next 2-3 years. I have found this site very helpful. One thing I have noticed is the dislike for lowballers on pricing. I was looking to find some information on pricing in my area. I want to make sure I am fair and not losing jobs, but I also don't want to steal work from other companies just because I am lowballing and I definitely don't want to be a fly by night business. I fear I may be one of these low ballers. Basically, this is my standard for lawn service. Minimum charge is $25.00 for 5,000 square feet. It goes up $5.00 every additional 5,000. I usually try to take into account for slopes, gates, etc, but have found that I really can't charge that much more. Any advice would be great as I try to learn as I go. Also, if anyone has any good suggestions on a standard for estimating, that would really help too.
