I know that things in FL are priced differently than in other parts of the country, but how low do you have to go?

I am looking at getting back in the biz, but I want to make sure it makes sense from a financial perspective.

I live in an area with a bunch of little lots and would like to get an idea of where other FL guys are pricing lots along with mowing time.

0-5K sq ft (several in my area)
5K-10K sq ft (tons of these)
10K-15K sq ft (seems rare)
These are just some general prices:
0-5K sq ft = $20 Per cut
5K-10K sq ft = $20 to $30 per cut
10K-15K sq ft = $30 to $45 per cut
Now these prices don't include obsticles you need to charge more for those.
and even sometime, when i know the size of the property i will charge a one time mow just to see how long it will take before i give them a monthly price.

It would work out the same but it would suck cause your profits are cut in half during the winter. Yearly contract broken down into monthly payments is the best way to go. April-October is your weekly November-March Bi-weekly.

42 cuts a year so if its $25 a cut it would be $87.50 a month unless my math has been off this whole time :p.

I'm not sure what my lot sizes are but in central florida 22.50-25.00 a cut is the going rate, takes about 20-25 minutes in and out.
Yep! Thats how you got to do it (yearly contract) same price all year long!
