I would like to know the rates for mowing lawns here in NC? I'm still getting calls from flyers I passed out months ago to mow my lawns. I picked up a few good suggestions on offering my areating services here in NC. 60.00 for up to 5000 sf and 10.00 for each additional 1000 sf. The client is pretty imppressed when I pull out my measuring wheel. What are the going rates for mowing lawns here in NC. Sometimes I hear your rates are too high. I think the best way would be to measure the property and then give my price. How much should I charge per sf to mow the lawn?
