Hi everyone, I have an issue I hope I can get your opinions on. I've been landscaping for a large residential estate property (12 acres of ornamental gardens) for the last 4 years. I don't tend the lawns, but the landscaped garden areas. I charge $25/hr at this property (haven't raised my price since I started), which I know is low to a lot of you guys, but it's also my most steady work. I'm usually there at least 2 full days a week. After reading the thread that Sean posted in the general discussion forum, I've been thinking about how I could transition the account to a monthly flat rate, instead of hourly. On average, I gross around $1600-$2000/mo in the Spring and Summer months, and $1100-$1400 in Winter (mild Winters here). This is my biggest account but it's hard when the numbers fluctuate so much, and I make less per hour here than anywhere else. However, I don't think that my client would agree to simply paying more per hour. You guys know what a tough sell that can be. Basically, I'm trying to figure out how I could be there less per week, make more per hour, hopefully lower the average cost for my client, and provide the same (or higher) level of quality service. Any ideas from more experienced business owners? Am I even asking the right questions or thinking about this right?
