Hey fellas, I'm 19 and have been doing lawns since I was eight or nine. This year, I started getting serious with my lawn maintenance business as university study ends early april, and I have the rest of the season in Canada to work untill september. I wanted to get some opinions from you professionals and other guys like me, to see what you think of my rates and how they compare to yours. My quality of workmanship is equivalent to or better than the large companies who have 60+ residential clients... In case you are wondering, I run around in a 1991 reg cab s10, with wodden railings on the side for packing all the grass. I use a 21' honda hrc216, stihl fs85 and a stihl bg55 blower. All my properties, I mow (including bagging the grass) edge horizontally and vertically and blow the concrete and walkways free of clippings. No I am not insured, and no I currently do not collect sales tax. I am doing this to make money for school and to save $ up over time for when fly the nest. All my lawns I maintain are nice properties, as I have only given estimates to those who water and maintain their yard frequently. In turn this results in is less wear and tear on my equipment, saving me from the homeowners who want there **** lawn mowed twice ever month or lawns that are infested with weeds, or littered with rocks, branches and other depris. Here is my schedule and prices, let me know what you think.
