    I am new in the business and do not really have a good idea of what the lawn market dictates is a fare price to charge for service. How do you all charge? By job? ie $35.00/acre mow/trim. How do you charge for mulching? hour+materials? Also any logo Ideas. The company is is "Eagle Landscaping" Thanks in advanced! Bryan

    How much will it cost you to produce an hour of work.
    How much will you pay labor for an hour (plus burden) (even if it is you)
    How much will you want your business to profit.
    Add it all up and that is what you need to charge.
    Next question is will your area support that rate
