    Disposal you should know. Before starting a business you should have some experience in the field. To not know to bring stuff to a landfill/transfer station is telling.

    Price wise you want to make a dollar a minute minimum. Anything high risk cutting trees, gutter work, pressure washing , try $3-$10 a minute.

      I will charge 12.50 every 15 min or 50.00 per hour for lawncare. I also do tree care at 100.00 per hour with a 2 hr minimum if I cant land the job for that I wont do it. And thats why I dont do much tree work . Trim ups weed outs 40.00 per hour and you should be fine add 55.00 per full load taken to the landfill that will cover the dump fee and put a lil gas in the ol tank!
      If you can't be good..Be good at it!

        It will all depend on how much time it takes to perform these jobs. As you are doing these services, keep track of the time they take you and then as you get future jobs, you will better be able to estimate the time needed and the cost to perform.

        and also what to do with the clippings? where to dispose of the stuff what to charge for that??
        Do you have a local dump you can bring them too? Find out how they charge and then make sure you include these costs, plus your time and gas to dump the clippings.
