    First off I would like to say hello as this is my first post. My question is that I am using a bid calculator from the lawnpro software and was wondering what I should pay myself if biding a job hourly? Since I will be covering all of the expenses of the buisness including my help should I charge $25-35 a hour? This will be my first serious year in buisness and was wondering if there is a industry average? I don't want to be the highest bid and I dont want to cut my own throat. I would appreciate any help you can offer.
    Thanks

    HOPPER
    If you figure out all expense to do certain size yard. You will find that each yard you are doing is different in their own little (PITA) way. Everyone has their minimum price ours is $35.00 1/4 acre and add on to that. If your talking maintenance you should have a number by the hour per man.
    I hope I answered your question.
