    If you charge by the cut I would go a bit more than that. 25 cuts per year that would come out to 20cents a cut raise. I charge monthly and do $5-10 about every other year depending on how much I like the customer.

    We usually tack on a buck per cut each year,but we do it every year. There are exceptions though.

    Yeah, i don't raise prices every year, but I do base it on the price per cut. Say this year I am cutting a lawn for $37.00. Next year it might be $37.50, $38, or $38.50. It just depends on what I feel is best.
