This is for lawn maintenance (mowing, trimming, blowing of debris).

I'd like to know the highest price you are able to charge, before clients begin to 'complain' about your service being too expensive.

Please state whether your price is per month, or per visit.
e.g.;

$75 per month

It all varies on the size of the yard but all my accounts pay per month because they are on yearly service contracts. So on average per house for just mow, trim, and blow is $126.00. But this is also in the off season when I'm not mowing.

As far as estimates go, it seems like $40/cut is a resistance point.

If it is a quote that is under $40 per cut, I get it 60%-70% of the time. Often I will cut it when I do the estimate.

If it is a quote that is $40 or more per cut, I get it closer to 40% of the time & those tend to call back later ( like they are getting other quotes to compare).

Cheapest (residential) weekly cut I do is $22, the highest is $130.

But $45 seems the going price point this season so far

I'm assuming most of these prices are per cut, not monthly?

Are your clients 'weekly' or bi-weekly?

How big are these lawns?

/

What would you price the average 2000 square foot ( OF LAWN ONLY ) property?

Too small for me - probably would not even quote it unless it was 3 or 4 together. I try to stick to $30 as a minimum anymore.

I have more problems with prices with small yards. You tell someone $30 for 10 mins of mowing and they start haggling or shutting doors.

One of the most informative and comprehesive bids I have heard. I have seen all kinds of different ways to bid but this is the best

stevef1201 I find it works well I walk them throw why their lawn is $40 and if they want to save money get a bigger gate
