Probably $55 just to mow. If you want the edges touched up also.. another $20. If you want him to blow..$20 more. You also want the shrubs touched up? Thats another $25.
You total for the monthly service is only $120.

Was this a legitimate company? Could you tell? Did they seem to have insurance? Or was this a fly by night operation?

I think any "lawn" was the key word.

What I mean by "key" word is the $55 any lawn price just tempts people to call, then they find out that it is only for the lawn. It cost more if they want other things done. I would imagine he doesnt do more than 1 or 2 $55 lawns. He makes his money by upselling for the edging, blowing, etc.
I would even bet that if someone came to him with a huge lawn and wanted the $55 service, he would probably tell them he is booked, so he doesnt have to do it.
