Quote[/b] ]Yeah I was talking to my dad about it today and he was like you need to charge by the job, so they know the total cost,
Thats what I meant. Figure out the total time its gonna take you to do a job then figure around $60/hr. Multiply that by your estimated time to come up with your total.
I'm sure you know this by now.
If you are going to be doing alot of flower beds I would even add some extra time on top of the total. You can easily end up spending 30 min on a very small area when cleaning out beds.

wow, now what would we do without you. With how busy I've been for today I didn't even really think about it! (again 2 kids, lol) Yes I will be dressing up, and we will be trick or treating this evening.
I'll get on making some flyers, I just bought candy for trick or treaters, I'll bag up the candy with flyers and hand them out as we go!!!!
Yay, I decided to make mini flyers, out of print your own business cards. Put a big happy halloween, have a safe holiday from: Sarah's Lawn Care and Flower bed beautification.
And made the bottom like a coupon for parents. A keep this card for $__ off any service. And obvously listed services.
I should have sent a bunch in with my daughter to school today for her classmates!!! agh!!
Well at least I know what I'll do for the christmas season...these mini flyers with bags of candy, happy holidays style.
Also there was even a girl in her class last year who brought in candy with a thanksgiving theme for her classmates...so I'll have some time to do that one I suppose.
Well just shareing my ideas.... Hopefully all this brainstorming will help others as well!!
Yeah I'll try to get a chance to edit out personal info and post a basic idea. I'll probably be able to get it up tonight.
This morning I sent all my leftovers (since we were out later than I thought we'd be) with my daughter for teachers, lunch ladies, etc!! Told her to give them to whoever she wanted, friends, staff, daycare staff/friends.
Last night I started sending her to the door with the business card size flyer to hand them when she got candy, LOL!! She's really outgoing, more so than I, plus she's cute, so figured it might go well!!

What kind of reaction did you get? Did you get any jobs because of it?
Well I'm kinda shy unless I know they want the business, I was pretty much stuck in the street with a stroller, so I couldn't walk up, but I did see them reading the card when my daughter directly handed it to them.
So far I haven't heard anything, but that might be because halloween fell in the middle of the week which was pretty hectic. I know it was for me anyway!!!
