There’s 3 factors that come into play when I quote landscaping maintenance.

1.) Itemized price
2.) Hourly
3.) Gut feeling

I add all 3 prices, then divide it by 3.

(after a while you don’t even have to do the math, it just comes to you)

By a stop watch and start timing everything.
Create a standardized price sheet in excel so you can have a reference on how much your prices are.

I went from a broke minded employee with zero money to invest to starting my own landscaping company.

The Landscaping Employee Trap

Whether you dream of starting your own lawn care, snow removal or landscaping business. It’s all a lot easier than you think.

You don’t need $20,000, a big bank loan or 5 start credit.
All you need is a will to win.

With a basic understanding of even shrub trimming, tree service, horticulture, garden maintenance, arboriculture, flowers, botany, gardening or any of the above combined with a will to succeed it’s all very possible.

    SOOO true! I can name 10 other companies, some are my competitors, some aren’t that I know for a FACT they just pass on paying taxes. I asked 1, how do u not get screwed come tax time. His response “EASY! We haven’t filed in 3 years lol”. Meanwhile I’m over here like 😱.
    I’ve noticed they also seem to be a lot less stressed than a honest tax paying landscaper like myself.
    New HD trucks, 60” Lazers and trips with the family are all things they dabble in routinely. Life ain’t fair..
    I hope I’m still around when the IRS comes to take the clothes off their children’s back. I CAN’T WAIT!!

    How many of those are you doing a day? We avg 2 a day at 450 each. We upsell the shrubs at a later time and generally sell the mulch and bed work with it. Yes we blow out leaves from them etc but why include them your losing money. Only thing you're doing there is finding something to do while the guys work. At 250 paying what I can see at least 2 guys and then yourself plus a dump fee how are you making any money. Let's not forget taxes. The company is technically a 4th employee. This just seems off. If you truly want to teach people what to charge for a clean up tell them the formula. Not what works for you.
    Add are your Bill's, expensive, overhead and anything else you can think of. Now add 10% because you certainly missed something. Now take that number and multiply it by 12. Once you have that number divide it by the amount of weeks you can work. Just because theres 52 doesn't mean you work all of them. For me its 35. So I take that figure and now know what I need to make per week to cover my basis. Times that number by 2.5 cause you want to make a living. Now divide it by 40. That's what you need to make an hour. You'd be shocked what it really is and how easy it is to obtain once you know your business. You cant possible tell what someone needs to charge to make their living.

Yep I have gotten bitter in my old age. Desposal cost same thing per hour till unloaded and returned to shop. Crap is not free.
