B-2 Lawncare is on a distinguished road
Default Hello From Wyoming.

Well hello out there.
I hope you guys well over look my spelling and grammar. I've spent to many years in the oil and gas industry. This is my first full year of ruining a Lawn care business. I have a small client base but hopefully with some marketing i will pick up some more work.
where i am at in Wyoming we get most of our precipitation in the spring as snow. But so far we have had a very mild winter. I run all John Deere equipment. At this point in my new career i have to use lawn tractors. I cant justify buying a mower that i cant use year round. I have one tractor with a snow blower and the other one has a front mounted snow blade.
I take care of two Home owners associations the post office and the new old folks home here in town. I have a question for you guys out there? For year round care what would you guys charge to mow about half an acre, along with taking care of a small pond and snow removal of a thirty car parking lot?
Look forward to talking with you guys let me know what you guys think.

Welcome to our forum.

I would say your first step would be to break down the jobs and figure out how long the jobs would take with the equipment you have.

How long would it take to:
Mow the half acre?
What do you need to care for the pond and how long would you spend per week doing it?
How long would it take to plow the driveway?
