Hey, Michael Wright Lawn Service Inc. here. Been in business for 28 years. Located in the Florida panhandle. Gulf Breeze, FL. I have 15 employees. 200 regular customers. Even though I have been in business a long time, I still am uncertain about charging per hour or by the job.

Heres how I look at it.

If you charge hourly thats all the potential the job has. You are limited by this.

If you charge by the job, the job has much more potential to make better money.

I've been bidding jobs for 15 years, not once have I made so little, that I wished I would have charged hourly.
