Just remember when you do this that you bard financing your work out to get a paycheck 12 months.

I just did a new one yesterday for one of my customers.

34 mowings x $40 each
5fertilizations x $40 each
$768 to mulch
$120 a month to maintain beds
There were a few other things in there as well but you basically figure what you would charge for something, how many times will you do that service is a year. Add it all up and divide by twelve. This customers came our to 322 a month.

If the place is in rough shape I charge extra for the first month.just be sure you double check and male sure you covered everything that customer wants. If you sign the contract for 200 a month, and forgot to add in mulch, your screwed. So just double and triple check.

Every new customer I get is given a paper that says what services might you be interested in this year? And that can read through the list of services and check some off. But what you do is give a slight discount on what services you can, to maks the contract seem like a better deal.
