    I realize this comes up quite often in threads, but seeing that a new season is upon us, I thought I would ask this. What is the least amount you would charge to mow a yard? And please, let's try to refrain from arguing. It should be interesting to see what parts of the country get what prices. Mine is $30/cut.

    I charge $20 right now cause I'm only a kid but eventually I want the prices to go up to about $30. $20 satisfies me right now and it helps beat out the other landscapers trying to get business. Once the people realize that I do an excellent job they will have no problem paying for $30 a cut.

    $30...but then again, it takes longer to get the equipment off the trailer than it does to mow the yard. Any body else have those kind of jobs?

    Heck yeah...it takes me about 2 minutes per account to juggle with equipment. I can tell you for a fact that it is a pain moving 1 36" , 2 48" , 1 61" Z....and a21" push not fun if you need the 36" which is at the front will take a few minutes to unload onto the street which looks bad .

    Mine minimum is $30
    cut, trim, edge and blow NOTHING with a 21" either with 36" or 60" ZTR and now I have a new 52" Turf Tracer to mix in.
    My neighbours I do for 20-25 but have 5 of them and I have cut them for many years.

    Not to pick on anyone in particular but Lawnkid said that he is starting at $20 and would like them to go up to $30, even with doing an excellent job you probably wont be able to jump from 20-30 very easily with customers you have serviced before.

    I have 1 acct. that takes me less than 5 minutes to Mow, trim, edge, & blow. It is right on my route, so I charge $15 per cut. This customer also has me do bed clean-up, mulching, leaf removal. etc... so it to me is worth a stop for $15.00

    With the account I do have. I have to make $30.00 an hour
    to cover cost.

    So yes.... if it takes me an hour then I would say $30.00 is
    profitiable......:confused:
