    i hav been doing this lawn for 4 season i haven't raised the price its $3000.00 for the season it takes about 1.5hrs to do, 3 out the 4 season i hav cut 13 times or less ,out of my contracted 26 weeks, so i'm thinking about raising it just wondering how much should i go :waving:

    If you are only cutting it 13 times and still getting $3000 for the year then I wouldn't raise the price any. I don't know if this is the case. Your post is kind of hard to follow.

    I Agree with Grits, if you're contracted for 26 cuts and only doing 13 and you;re still getting 3,000 for the season, i wouldnt raise it any. if i was your client and you only did half the work i contracted for i would have dropped you long ago.

    You are making $150/hour at that price. Why would you risk losing the customer to someone that will charge less? I am assuming this is a good customer that you want to keep. Stick with the $3000!
