Default Lawn Packages

Hey guys does anyone here offer different packages for there lawn service? If so what type of packages. I'm thinking about offering three different packages from bronze silver and gold but not sure what I should include with them. Pleasegive me some input.

Justin how did those different lawn care packages work? Did you find people were interested in the higher end packages?

I like the different services you offer to really make as much potential profit as you can per stop.

Would the dog waste cleaning be an add on for all the packages? Have you thought about how much you would charge?

Yea I'm going to offer the dog clean-up as an optional for any package. If i'm there cutting grass to I figure $10 would be enough to cover it. Unless they have alot of dogs it should only take like 5min to clean up a yard.

Will you be charging an additional fee per extra dog? I have seen that on sites from businesses that offer that service.

Yea. I just found a website that I put on the doggie franchise thread. I was looking at it and they charge for multiple dogs. They also have a first time charge and for the customers who don't want to sign a contract he charges more. I never thought there was money in poop. But it looks like it would be great filler work.

Are you going to charge a first time charge and will you charge more for a customer without a contract?

I havn't decided yet. But I think if someone just wants a one time deal its gotta be $30 or more. You've got truck, gas, labor and materials. So i think its only worth your time if you can do it weekly
