Hey everyone.

Just wondering what everyone is charging for about a half acre with a small amount of trees. Just a simple mow, weed whack, and edge.

It would take about a total of 45-60 minutes. I see I had no other responses. I am not trying to low ball or anything just curious to see if I was bidding around the norm.

dont ask other companies what they charge to base your prices off of

calculate your total overhead and find your minimum base charge
then increase that price as you wish.

one companies price may be 40$ and ones may be 135$ just because of what there company needs to survive. Find out what yours needs and base all your estimates off of that. It will help you in the long run..

What is your hourly fee? Could you go with $45 to service this property? More or less?
