    If you know your cost per hr to operate your business you take that number and add the % of profit you would like to make.

    I get paid by the job. I know what I need to make and what it costs me to do the work!

    Gross mowing rate is $80hour as a target. Early spring might be lower mid to late summer may be as much as $100/ph.

    Mowing only I shoot for $100 per. Usually averages that on the books. Some weeks it's $120+ never drops below $80
