What is your minimum charge and what does it include?

For mowing mine is $30 includes basic mow trim blow done in 15 or less.

For squirt and fert I'm at $50 per app for basic 6 step program. Covers up to 1000sqft.

Gardening is $125 per hour usually sold per job. If power tools need +$25.

I'm $30 min on mow. Stop charge now on apps $30 plus a per k sq ft charge. Other services are billed per man hour which right now is $40 but that's going up to $50 possibly $60 next season. Mulch and sod are a set rate per cubic yard or per pallet respectively.

$40 min for mows. Mulch and sod are X amount for cubic yard and per pallet.

The weeding and stuff is usually $50 minimum and that has to be under 30 minutes

Side note... Still related I think. Picked up blades not too long ago. These are now running $50 a set about twice what they were 8 or 10 years ago but I can promise you I'm not getting twice what I was per lawn in that same time frame. Maybe 20% more.

$30/min on mowing, it's gotta be something where I'll be there 10-12 minutes.

$60 minimum for fertilizer (plus cost of product)

$75/man hour on mulching/trimming

$100/man hour on landscape install.
