I have been a Lawn Site reader/poster for about a year now and I have learned a lot from all the information available. In several posts I have seen lots of LCO's stating that "I get a dollar a minute". Well thats all well and good if you can get that but I have had "0" luck in my attempt to charge and successfully get a dollar a minute. I have top notch equipment, I've been doing this kind of work since I was 13 so I got a handle on this stuff and still the dollar a minute eludes me. further, have several friends in the business which are my competitors. We discuss things like this over lunch regularly and as a group we are lucky to get thirty five dollars an hour per man. Maybe the market in central NC is bad? Anyone in NC please provide a little input if you can regarding your success and the elusive $1.00 a minute.
