    Hi there,
    I'm from Indiana and I'm a Landscape Designer working for somebody else.
    I'm trying to do my own thing and I just thought doing some landscape maintenance (mowing) is a pretty good way to start with.
    I know pretty much how It is to mix up out there in landscaping (installation) business but don't know how it works on the landscape maitenance or mowing business.
    I'll start with asking if anybody there knows how much to charge for a service in Indiana.
    any tips would be highly appreciated. thanks.

    Do you live in Ferdinand? Prices per hour vary depending on your overhead. Probably 35-40 per hour would be appropriate.

    I live in MERRILLVILLE, INDIANA (lake county)and 35-40 sounds fair enough but do I have to set a minimum amount per visit? 20-25 maybe. I mean if the property don't take me an hour atleast to knock out.
    thanks ATV. appreciate the tips.
