    I am a wondering what a good starting price would be for the following. I have a couple neighbors that want me to cutting their lawns, edging around the sidewalks and driveway, and possibly fertilizing. Our lots are around 1/4 of an acre. I want to give them a fair price, but I want to be able to make some cash to pay off my Hustler Mini Fastrack so I can start purchasing more equipment to possibly build on my client base. Thanks...........Striper

    As far as price it will need to be what makes you money what is your time worth and what is the equipments time worth? How long will it take you to do each one. You will see anything from $25.00 to $65.00 but it depends on your cost to make a assesment as to how much you should charge. If you can make money at $35.00 then do it but if you need $40.00 charge that $5 is a big differance over a season.
