    Our lawn mower broke yesterday & we are sure it is a sign from God to hire a Lawn Mowing company! :) What should we expect as a bid? We live in Maryland & have 1/3 of an acre. We would want weekly mowing. Just wondering what we should expect when we get a couple of estimates.... thanks for your help!

    I think A+ is on the money. I would do a quick trim around the house as well for the same $35.

    It sounds like good money but remember there is some overhead involved,

    Work truck , trailer, mower, weed eater, gas (for mower and truck), and drive time to get to the location. 35 sounds like a good bit of money but it is not all profit.

    insurance, postage, oil, electrical tape, tires, ................. it goes on and on. But it wouldnt take an hour either.

    If it took an hour, it would be more than that. What "bidness" are you in?

    generally its a $1 a min up to 60 mins, then its a diff. ball game :waving: some LCO even complain about the $1 per min. and charge $1.50 per min.
