    Well ive realized that my prices are VERY Low. So im trying to get some ballpark price figures on services i offer.

    REMINDER!!! These are just ballpark prices, property obstacles, land forms and other stuff will consider price

    -Lawn Maintenance- (Mow-Trim-Edge-Blow)

    1/4 Acre/Average $20.00
    1/2 Acre/Average $30.00
    3/4 Acre/Average $35.00
    1 Acre/Average $45.00

    Then I was thinking as stated above $45.00/1 Acre, mayb like $40.00/Acre Above 1 Acre?

    -Bush/Shrub Trimming-

    $30.00/Hour & Mayb Like $5-7.00 Per Bag (We dont have a truck yet)

    Storm Clean Up/Chainsaw Work

    $40.00/Trailer Load Of Debris

    How Do These Sound? I know some are proboably low some may be high.

    Oh Yea Next Year Im Hoping To Get A Pressure Washer, I was thinking $0.13-$0.15 Cents/Sq Ft?

    Aerating? Minimum $30.00?

    Sorry For Long Post!

    Aeration should at the very least be what a person would rent it + the cost to get it to their house. If they can rent it for 75 a day, figure 10 hassle to bring it to their house and then add in money because people are lazy. Make a 90 minimum, and then go up from there.

    $90.00!!! That seems a little steep for a minimum, the place i would rent it from does like 8 hour days, so i dunno 60-75 to rent proboably. But i think mayb $55.00 for minimum but $90.00 Seems Steep. Thanks For The Reply! -Mitch-
