I started a pressure washing / deck staining business last summer. This spring we are starting lawn service. 9 of my pressure wash customers have already indicated interest in full-service lawn care and I'm still pulling those strings. My other advertising consists of Facebook ads (I've spent about $50 so far) and flyers door-to-door (I'm a college kid neighbors don't care if I put flyers at their door.) So my questions are about pricing and equipment for lawn care service. For pricing, my region is suburban DC where people tend to have a good amount of $$ to spend. The lots are typically around 10,000sq/ft. (normal suburban house size and property and a good amount of trees. For our full-service lawn plan, which consists of weekly mowing, blowing, trimming, edging, and fertilization 3-5 times per year, I'm thinking about charging $395/month with another few hundred a season for spring/fall cleanups. (obviously this can be adjusted based on size of the property) It should take me and my buddy less than a hour to knock off each house once a week, so what do think about our prices. Do you think we can go even higher than $395/month?? Also for equipment, I'm looking for cheap but effective. I need 1 good lawn mower, 1 leaf blower (doesn't even need to be a backpack blower for now), 1 edger and 1 trimmer. I already have a Toyota pickup truck. Maybe I'll get a trailer but for now those 4 pieces of equipment will be my biggest expenses, so if I can keep the price for this equipment down to a minimum that would be ideal. If anyone has any suggestions for cheap but decent equipment let me know please.
