    Are my prices high, low, or right on. There is 5-10 different lawn care services in my area, and there is plenty of work (especially dethatching :hammerhead:) to go around.

    $35 - 30 min of work - mow (bagging), trim, and blow.
    $75 - around 1:00 of work - cleanup, mow, etc.
    $100 - 1:30+ of work - dethatch (and dethatch cleanup), mow, and minor cleanup.

    Labor costs for 30 minutes is atleast $20, correct? Sounds too low to make a profit. In my area, with 3 guys, a 30 minute job must bring $75 min. We shoot for $60man/hr, but sometimes come up a short. Obviously your market could be different.

    If you are getting every job you bid, the answer is that you are too low.
