I have come up with a little formula that seems to work for me in estimating basic lawn maintenance work by the square foot. I want to know if anyone else uses a similar method and what it might be.<br> I start by measuring the lot with a wheel then I subtract the square footage of the house and other areas that are not to be maintained, this gives me my grass area. I then multiply that by .oo2. That number is the price for one cut. I then multiply that # by the average number of times per year that I visit. Lastly I divide it all out by 12 months to give me my average monthly price to bill the client, ie. $120 per month. <br> The formula looks like this:<br>(sq. ft. X .002) = price per cut<p>(price per cut X avg # of visits per year) divided by 12 months = average monthly price<p>I am usually making between 35 and 40 dollars per man hour with this.<br>Chris H.
