I'm assuming most of these prices are per cut, not monthly?

Are your clients 'weekly' or bi-weekly?

How big are these lawns?

What would you price the average 2000 square foot ( OF LAWN ONLY ) property?

Too small for me - probably would not even quote it unless it was 3 or 4 together. I try to stick to $30 as a minimum anymore.

I have more problems with prices with small yards. You tell someone $30 for 10 mins of mowing and they start haggling or shutting doors.

One of the most informative and comprehesive bids I have heard. I have seen all kinds of different ways to bid but this is the best
