I'm new and want to acquire clients on yearly contracts. I would like to offer total yard maintenance all year round and have a set monthly price. I'm in the south, lots of leaves, hardly any snow (maybe an inch or two once a year. I have a Walker 48" GTS, 21" toro, and Stihl blower, hedgetrimmer, and weedeater. I would like to offer as a standard package mowing, edging, trimming, shrub trimming, light pruning, leaf removal, planting bed maintenance, and dethatching as my standard package. I will be going to my customers house every week throughout the year doing something. I realize every area and yard is different, but am looking for an average monthly price for a 1/2 acre yard and I can adjust the price up or down after considering the factors for each yard. I'm thinking around $200/month seems about right. Any thoughts on this. I would like to also offer fertilizing and aerating as a yearly option and add this price spread out into their monthly payments. Also, how much would be a good average price for a year of fertilizing total ( how many times a year ) and the same question for aerating. Remember, just for and average 1/2 acre.
