Alright, so say you have a new customer you just gave a quote for mowing and trimming. But they say they want you to weed the garden every visit or every other visit. How would you tag that on to the monthly rate along with your mowing and trimming? say your hourly rate is 35. If that helps any.

We simply charge by the hour per employee, some months will have a lot of weeds, others very little, also explain to them when you stay on top of the weed issue it costs less time as compared to doing it two or three times a year.
