Did you say you had worked in the auto sales industry, in another post? When you were working in that field, what did you find was the best way to advertise there?

Your website looks very nice! It looks like you put a lot of energy into it.

It's going to be based on a number of factors. What your overhead costs are. What % of profit you can add to that, based on what your local going rate is for lawn care.

Have you played around with the business calculators yet to get a feel for what you should be charging?
