    It needs to dry up so I can at least get started on my landscaping jobs, so I can have them about done before mowing starts. I just paid out about $5,000 for insurance and it has put a hurtin on me!!

    Looks like we may be a little late getting started. It's calling for about 1" of snow here in Clarksville, TN.

    Noob from Knoxville here. Just wanted to drop in, started doing part time work to help pay for a new 48" scag I just purchased from Broadway Power in Maryville (Great Business). Mainly purchased mower to help ailing grandfather with very large lot and replace my 28" snapper RER. Have picked up 2 clients from full time job that want their 1/3 -1/2 acre lot mowed, trimmed, and blowed. What is a good going rate for these clients? I am by myself and just looking to help pay for the mower now and pick up some extra cash down the road. Thanks fellow Tennesseeans and I'm looking forward to learning from this website.

    Hey I'm fairly new this is my first year and I have mis bid a couple of jobs just from lack of experience but if you make a dollar a minute you should be fine if you don't have a bunch of overhead expenses.I'm about a hour away from Knoxville and my area I'm sure is cheaper than it will be in Knox good luck

    That was the rate I was considering. I did one coworkers lawn last week and it took around 45 mins for everything from unloading to loading and leaving. I quoted her $40 before starting and I think it was pretty fair (her yard is the larger of the 2).

    Anyone else?

    Sounds pretty fair my minimum is 35.00 but most of my lawns range from 45.00 to 65.00 so far its going decent slowly but surely building up competition is tuff around here because of all the beer money mow guys doing 60 yards for 20 bucks.lol

    Knoxville here. Can anyone recommend a place to dump green waste on the west side of town? All I found online is the county recycling center on Proctor Ave.
