  1. Business Operations
    I'm having clients(current and new) asking for me to set their irrigation systems to water the required psi settings in our area for the grasses we have(warm seasonal). I tell them how much they should be watering weekly. So usually I would have to set out rain gauges to get the readings, then...
  2. Lawn Mowing
    We get a lot of leaves starting around the beginning of Oct until around December. We stop our regular mowing season mid November. Do you all charge extra for the leaves during your mowing season? We mulch and bag during this time.

  4. Lawn Mowing
    New to this site, but I wanted to get an idea of what you generally charge for mowing. We generally run a 2 man crew on most jobs. Me, and my partner. We both own 50% of our company, so we don't have an hourly rate. All the money goes back into the business, and we take what we need when we...

    I am reaching out. I kept having to charge my machine to keep it running. I finally found time to start finding the issue.

  8. Lawn Mowing
    So I have a relatively new mowing and buckthorn removal business (www.mikes-mowing.com) and I am unsure how I would go about charging people. I have heard 1$/ minute is something good to go by, but I have also heard that charging per acre is the best way to do it. I just don't understand how I...
  9. Lawn Mowing
    I was mowing last night with a JD 757 w/ 25HP Kawasaki and I noticed the charging light came on, which was followed by a "hot" electrical smell. I shut it down and found the connector to the clutch was melted. I clipped the burnt/melted connector off and took an ohm reading across the coil and...
