    I have to give a estimate on a small lawn today, I will be in and out in 10min. What would you charge?

    With my route filling in I will not bother with any lawn under $30. The only exception to this would be a small yard in a neighborhood I already have accounts in. Even then it would not be much less than $30.

    It should be 1/2 of what you would charge for a 20 min lawn, 1/3 of a 30 min lawn, etc.

    What did you quote?

    Where is it?

    That would be the key, for me.

    Right now, I don't have anything that I bill out less than $50/per for. But, I do more than "mow, blow and go". I'm not saying I wouldn't service a lawn for less than that....if the circumstances were convenient.

    Won't drop the gate for less than $40 a cut (with discounts on yearly plans, that rate drops). Doesn't matter where it is. I mow all my neighbors yards, no travel time, no wear on the truck, no gas to get there. two are $40, one is $50.
