Hello My name is Jimmy and I am just getting started in the Lawn business. I am 55 years old and live in the upstate of South Carolina. Any advice would be greatly appreciated especially what do you charge to cut, to mulch, to trim hedges.

Hi Jim,

Welcome to our forum!

What got you interested in starting your own lawn care business?

Have you checked out the estimators (http://www.gopherforum.com/showthread.php?p=43299#post43299) yet to help you with pricing?

It has always been a passion of mine, I love the outdoors and I worked for a manufacturing company for 30 years before I got laid off 2 years ago. So at 55 I said now or never.

I don't have any pictures as I am just starting to set my business up such as getting liscened, buying equipment, finding a CPA, etc. I was just trying to get an idea what the going price in upstate SC is for spreading mulch and cutting grass and trimming hedges.
