How to Price a Lawn Care Job

By Brad Behr from Copper Creek Cuts

Hi guys, Brad here from Copper Creek Cuts, and today I wanted to share a quick tip on something we all ask at one stage or another, and that's how to price a lawn.

While there can be a bunch of variables in it, for me the main pricing is very simple, as I show you in this video.

As I mentioned at the start of the video, for me it comes down to two things:

  • How long do you think that job is going to take you?

  • What's your desired hourly rate for that job?

Taking these two simple questions will help you arrive at how much you need to charge for that lawn job.

For example, if you think a job will take you one hour to complete, and you want to make $60 per hour, then you'll charge $60 for that job. If you want $75 per hour, and you think it'll take two hours to complete, you'll charge $150 for the work. And so on.

Then all you need to do is make sure you know how long each different service, like irrigation, clean up, etc., takes, as well as what materials you need to account for, including pick up or delivery fees to the job site.

Then there's maintenance on equipment, insurance, taxes, etc., and that's something I'll dive into in a future video.

I hope this video helps, guys, and let me know how you come up with the rates for your jobs!
