How commercial lawn care pricing is determined
To put it simply, commercial lawn care pricing is determined by the Laws of Supply and Demand. In other words, the market will support what the market supports. You can find commercial lawn cutting for $75 per hour. You can find it for $30 per hour, and every price in-between those two extremes.
There will always be those customers looking for a great bargain who will gladly pay the lower rate, and there will always be those customers who believe that a higher mowing price means a better job done.
In a down economy, like the one we find ourselves in now, 2022-2023, there is a plethora of shoestring operations cropping up, people who will do lawn care for much less than the established norm. That is understandable. We see it every single time the market takes a downturn. Our only word of caution is to make sure that the low price you are paying does not reflect the quality you are receiving.
Who regulates commercial lawn care pricing?
In a word, no one regulates the commercial lawn care industry. There are regulations concerning unfair labor practices, and there are obviously regulations governing scams and blatant cheating of customers, but the pricing is something which simply regulates itself. As long as customers are willing to pay low end, or high end, the price has a way of going whichever way the market determines.
The only smart way to approach hiring a commercial lawn care company
With the pricing being something, at times, which resembles the Wild West, it is a classic situation of buyer beware. How do you, the customer, know that you will receive a quality mowing job for a low price? Or for a high price? The only way of ensuring you get what you contracted for is to do your homework, ask for references, and then follow up on those references. The simple truth is this: anyone can claim to be a commercial lawn care professional. All it takes is a business license and a mower.
The proof, however, requires some investigative work, and that investigative work falls directly on you, the customer. Ask others who have had commercial lawn care. Check with the Better Business Bureau. Call the references you are given. These are ways to make sure you are getting what you pay for, the only sure-fire way to do so.
