very very low. you need to shoot for atleast 50-60 per hour or it will be a waste of your time. also, dont waste your time with bush trimming. no one wants to pay what its worth.I live in Norfolk, VA and I would like to find out how much to charge people to mow,edge and line trim there yard. I have heard about $20 an hour for about 1/3 acre, and what about bush trimming
Man..... take it easy...the guy was on asking a question?Nope!!!!!!!! 1/4 acre's range 40-45. You get stuck in the Norfolk traffic. 20$ an hour,Your kidding. We make over a $100 an hour. Someone lied to you bud. We work in Norfolk, Suffolk, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach and P Town. Go to O.D.U. and get a degree in business management. It will help alot. Have you ever worked for a landscape firm? If not, go get some experience.
I think its great that you are trying to join the industry and that you are trying to learn. However if you dont know how pricing works you will end up hurting yourself. My opinion is price what you need. Meaning if your over head is high then price higher and so on.I live in Norfolk, VA and I would like to find out how much to charge people to mow,edge and line trim there yard.

^^^^^^Damn good advise^^^^^^Before you start estimating any jobs you need to sit down and figure out your costs. You need to think about fuel to get to the job, fuel for the mowers and other equipment, insurance costs, maintenance/unexpected repairs, and a profit for yourself. Best of luck.
