This year is looking up for me too. I do this part time, so I dont make a whole lot due to time constraints with my full time job. last year I brought in 6700 for the year. This year I am currently doing $2500/month (which by the way is more than my full time job). I will more than triple my income. I landed some big accounts and am getting calls daily for lawn care. I also have a website that people are finding constantly on google, yahoo, msn, etc. So, i believe it will be a good year also. As a matter of fact am going pick up my brand new Exmark AS 48" ZT either tomorrow morning or monday afternoon. I cant wait. But, like lawn connection, my minimum is $35. I dont do bi-weekly's. If you cant afford me, dont hire me. I have one yard that I charge only $20 and it's because she's right across the street from my house and it literally takes me 10 minutes to do her yard. besides that I agree that lawn connection is a lil cheap, but hey if you can pay your bills and do what you have to do off of that then more power to ya brother. I dont have over head, so i dont need to make a certain amount. so i can cut prices here and there too so i get a lot of accounts like that too.
