    Just thought I'd throw this out to find a national and regional average...

    Let us know where you're located and what you charge (base price, hourly, etc.) for the following:

    - Weekly Mowing
    - Leaf Removal/Pick up & Cleanups
    - Aeration
    - De-thacting
    - Snow Removal
    - Mulching
    - Pruning (bushes, shrubs, etc.)
    - Field Cutting/Bush hog
    - Fertilization
    - Gutter Cleaning
    - anything i missed....

    Answer all or some, curious how prices differ across the country. Also, trying to reset my pricing guide. Thanks!

    For maintenance work we needed to be about $55 on residential and above $40 for the large commercial to stay afloat. So I always worked to be above that point.
