I want to thank everyone on here for their posts. It's become very useful to me but I have a question regarding pricing and I was hoping you could help. I've done mowing for years in the midwest and just got paid little because I was growing up and didn't know better. But I've started my own lawn business in Portland, OR and would like your input on what to charge. Right now I've been going with $45 as a minimum price depending on the size of the yard. Usually I can get a yard mowed, trimmed, and edged in 90 minutes. Now I know that everyone is stuck on their $1 a minute pricing, but I'm using just a push mower so it takes me longer than those with walk-behinds. I was thinking maybe $45 for the first 2 hours and then $20 every 15 minutes after that. What do you think? Also, I serve Portland/Vacouver, WA so I have a larger area to travel than someone normally does with a small lawn business. What do you usually charge for travel? Maybe charge for anything further than 10 miles away? Thanks for your input. I know everything there is about lawn care but the pricing is something I haven't dealt with before. I appreciate everyone for helping me out.
