Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
No kidding, I mean $19.95 a week for a lawn up to 6,000 Sq. Ft., WOW. $30 per week is my minimum, no matter how small. This just seems absolutely too low of pricing. What do most of you charge? and for what size lawn front & back?

I've only measured a few of my customers lawns. I charge one of my customers $70 for about 4000 sq ft. and another one $50 for about 2500 sq ft.
They must have some sort of system where it works out for them though. I didn't check how long they've been in business.

I try to have a $150 minimum for the month. There are very few exceptions for this. For example there is a small deli/restaurant about a block away from my house, and they have a tiny piece of lawn only. I will stop by there and mow it real quick for them, and in return I will get free lunch once per week. I think it takes me a total of about 10 minutes including loading and unloading.

Thats per cut.
They have on there size of lot before improvements. A house, driveway, beds, and other things can take up alot of sq ft. Maybe this standard works out good for them.
