    Ok Guys, we need your help!

    This is our first year. We have 12 residential lawns so far. We prefer to mow every 7-10 days. We have a few customers who want their lawns cut every 14 days. We think we need to charge more for the 14 day cuts. What do you all think? My real question is, how much more? 50% more?

    YES charge more, or don't even do it. It really is too much of a pain.

    If you really want to do this to get customers, then I would charge at least 50% more, maybe even double.

    Charge more. Let them know that either a) Their lawn will not look its best cutting every other week in the spring and fall, or (b) you are going to have to catch the grass. This should help them understand the increase in costs. 50% should be a safe bet to start.
