I am looking at how to estimate the cost/profit of mowing, trimming, blowing a lawn with a honda push mower, weed eater, blower. I would like to make $30.00 per hour to do this type of service.

Welcome to our forum!

First I would suggest start off with the average size lawn you will be mowing. Then figure out how long the job will take you to perform based on your equipment. You can use the lawn care estimators (http://www.gopherforum.com/showthread.php?p=43299#post43299) here.

Then I would figure what your expenses are by tallying them up.

There will be some fixed costs as well as some variable costs depending on how many lawns you are servicing.

I'd love to see what you come up with.
