    I am new the lawn care business and I'm wondering if there are standard industry costs i.e. cost per square feet for mowing...60" ZTR, 24" walker with a bagger. Sting trimming amount per linear feet of side walk etc...

    Is there a web site or orgnaization I can look to for this information?

    Thanks for your help

    Yes there is such a thing as an Industry pricing standard, and this would be the Web site.

    You have to come up with your own prices. What someone else charges might not work for you. To be successful you have to be able to drive up to a house and know how much you will need to charge to make a nice profit. It's all about the bottom line.
