    Pricing survey:
    Hi my name is Duncan and I live in Williamsburg Virginia. I'm doing a survey for my high school economics class and my business. I'm gong to contact 5 services in 3 different sized cities in all 50 states, so any bits of info you can give will save a ton of time! Thanks everyone.

    What is your company name and location (city and state).

    How long have you officially been in business?

    What would you, on average, charge for a perfectly square and perfectly flat 5000ft lawn with 100ft of edging that needs to be cut regularly?

    How many customers do you cut grass for?

    How many additional customers do you take on each year?

    How many mowing do you do for a single yard each year?

    Do you work more for Middle or Upper Class customers?

    What is your company’s average income after expenses in a given year?


    Thanks again for your help!

    Dont waste his time if you dont want to help dont, Hes got a lot of data to collect. It will make his report more professional if he can say company x from y in the state of z provides....

    instead of a compony in x does this for this cost.


    its all about presentation and professionalism.

    sounds to me like a stalker of some sort. :laugh:

    i wouldn't give out any personal information to anyone on here like my company name and how much money i make every year and such.

    it's none of the world's business. if you want responses i would remove the first and last questions.

    Good luck with your project... Anonymity would speed things right along. Doubt you'll find that many people willing to share that kind of personal info. It's tough to get some of these guys to share experience on bidding jobs no less their bottom line. Want naked pics of my wife too?
    Sarcasm of course... Ambitious project. Likely to deter you from the lawn care business.
