    I charge between 30-35.00 for an average 1/4 acre property, each one takes about a half hour..should I be charging more?

    Are you making a profit after your expenses? If not...then charge more.

    I shoot for a $35 minimum. Though I have a $30 property.

    Sounds just right. I have $35 minimum, even if it takes 10 minutes.

    Are you turning a profit at your current price after all your expenses are taken care of?

    $40 is my bottom, even if it takes 5 mins.

    I'm making a profit, but I should be making more..I don't want to be recommended because I'm "cheap"...Think I'm going to raise prices next season

    Thanks for all the input
