    You've got to add reading comprehension to your "to do" list.

    Do you realize how you are making yourself look? People giving you genuine advice and all you do is talk back to them. You need some respect and learn to humble yourself

    I only have two lawns that I have slightly under bid. And that’s because the backyard is like the side of Mt Everest. They could used about a $15 bump in price. All of my other accounts are above or spot on.

    As for raising prices. I keep my long time customers at their present/pass rates. And mark up the new accounts. To offset the cost of fuel/inflation etc..

    They say that the annual inflation rate in this country is about 2% typically.

    It really doesn't make sense. The only thing I've seen go up dramatically in the last 20 years is property/homes. I mean, prices go up, but I can't think of too many things that have gone up 40% in the last 20 years, and a lot of things are cheaper.

    I find it hard to believe that you're as old as you claim.
