Well Im not really what you would call commercial but the other day I got my first commercial account and think I did pretty good, just looking for some feed back on the pricing. It is a private park in a subdivision, the park is 3 acres and I have to do 2 empty lots, I got the job for $450 every 10 days plus I charge $200 extra when I plant new flowers in the gate entry flower bed and touch up the mulch, this is labor only. Anyway the mowing trimming only takes me about 5 hours. So how did I do?

$90 an hour....how do YOU think you did? Don't forget to deduct gas, insurance, depreciation, etc etc and blah blah blah. So now you are paying them $3 to cut their lawn.... just kidding of course.

Well there is a lot of trimming due to some wet spots so it might not take that long when the rain slows down, as for the mower type I have a Dixie Chopper, Echo blower, edger and trimmers, and a 16' enclosed WW trailer.
