What I have noticed in my area is that most lawn service guys are under cutting. I once considered it, but I see the effects it has on the industry as a whole. There should be certain standard we live by. I had an offer for a lawn mowing, edging job. The lawn is a little over 3/4 of an acre. It has a steep slope in the front yard. In between the street and the side walk is another island with grass. The client wants everything edged. I calculated it is 60 feet from garage to where his property ends. This is not including the island in front. Basically, I have just started. I have a push mower and edger and blower. It would take me basically at least 3hrs to get the job done. I offered $100 to do the job, then came down to $75. Just to find out that another guy offered $50. How in the world could the job be done for $50 is confusing me. Even if you have a rider, it will take you at least two hrs. Am I charging to much and being frustrated because I do not have a rider to do the job quickly or do I have a legitimate beef!! What should I charge for 3/4 acre.
