How much to charge Landscaping Prices Hourly or By the Job

There’s 3 factors that come into play when I quote landscaping maintenance.
1.) Itemized price
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.
YES, I under-quoted many times and STILL DO.
YES, I’ve let customers take advantage of me.
YES, I have ADD and Low Self-esteem
YES, I feel like a piece of crap because I don’t have nice cars and a fancy house to come home to.
YES, I have horrible anxiety issues and constant racing thoughts.
No One is ever going to save you so get to work and get that business off the ground.
I went from a broke minded employee with zero money to invest to starting my own landscaping company.
My last year as a landscape foreman I was stuck in a dead end job, made $24,000 and barely had enough to make the bills let alone pay off debt and student loans.
Coming home to eviction and shut off notices and fighting with my wife over money problems.
I remember being out to eat at a restaurant with her and some friends one evening and I was in so much financial anxiety over the bills that I excused myself into the restaurant bathroom and had an emotional breakdown.
My friend Dave taught me some valuable small business tips that changed my life forever and in only 6 weeks I was making enough money following his advice doing side jobs that I replaced my income and ditched my grass cutting job.
My first year in business I doubled my income,
2nd year doubled it again, 3rd year even more than that.
Finally, I’m humbly here to teach you the methods I learned
to end the suffering and start your own dang 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.
