    Dont charge by the hour since the better you get at it the quicker you will get it done and the less you will make. :waving:

    But, if you are going to charge an hourly rate, take the hourly amount you would like to earn, then multiply times three to cover overhead. A $20/hour guy would bill out at $60.

    If you are using a 21" mower then this probably wouldn't apply, but if you are using anything bigger, shoot for a dollar a minute. If you are only using a 21" then I'd say shoot for 30-40 an hour. (gross)
