I got this yard when I started two years ago and it was my first yard that I got when I started in the business. The yard belongs to my mothers brother. When I started, I was doing the yard for $60 a cut then this year I went up to $65. He was not happy and even mentioned to my mother that he thought I was a little expensive, but sense I was family he would let me keep on doing it. I am 40 years old and he is still calling my mother and telling on me. The yard takes 2.25 hours which means that I am only making about $29 an hour. After learning a ton for everyone on LawnSite (THANKS FOR ALL THE ADVICE), I have come to realize that this price is way low and needs to go up. I have gotten two new yards in the last week and a half. These have been quoted at $40 per hour with the minimum of $50 per yard. The question is how do I get him from $65 to $90 per cut, every two weeks (needs to be done weekly - but he want go for it)? Or do I just leave the price alone and figure its family and its only one yard. He is on a nice lake and one of the new yards was his neighbors yard and I made out good on his yard. I did a $300 clean up last week and started his yard this week. It took 1 hour and 10 minutes and I billed him $55 (but he tipped me on both jobs - the clean up was $275 - he paid $300 and this week I billed him $55 - he paid $70). I also had another neighbor call me ... so do I just leave it alone or go up and hope he stays?
