    I want to know what everyone does in various catagories and how and what you charge for each.

    1)Basic Weekly Lawn Care
    2)Spring Cleanup
    3)Fall cleanup
    4)Aerating
    5)Power Racking

    I really suck at estimates...I always under estimate for people.

    I hate trying to figure out liner ft and deciding on a fair price per foot.

    Most of my business is suburban houses in preplanned mass produced neigborhoods with lots of about 1/4 acre to a max of 1/3 acre.

    I am looking to expand some of my services to spring/fall cleanups aerating, and power racking and am looking to see what the going rates are so I can be competative yet still make a reasonable profit for myself. I work alone for the most part with occasional help if i need it.
