Here is a great article on how one lawn care business performs and bills for holiday lighting and decoration services.

http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2010/nov/29/scott-garske/

In the article they hit on a few important points.

They use only their decorations.
Each job starts with a decoration consultant offering suggestions on what would look best.
The average charge is $300 - $600
The highest priced job was $35,000
Some of their high end work has the holiday lights dancing to the sounds of a radio broadcast you can hear from your car's radio as you drive by.
The decoration bid includes the cost of removing the decorations at the end of the season.
They do some free decorations for returning soldiers.


Does this get you thinking on a better way to perform this service and bill for it?

Are you offering this service now? If so, what do you think about it so far?

No, I'm just starting the lawn care. Been a week and a half in yet. Hoping next year I can add this for my customers.
