One acre is 43560 square feet, the average house is 3000 square feet so now you are down to 40560 square feet, lets say the house has a pool, and its 24' round, so figure close to 500 square feet, down to 40060 square feet, give extra for a driveway maybe 30*15 so take out another 450 feet, so the average 1 acre lot has 39610 square feet of yard to maintain so with all of that, (and I was very generous) there is 0.909320477503907 acres of property, WAY to much to charge $25 for. I get $25 for a 1/4 acre lot that takes me 15 minutes. I mow with a 38" walk behind mower and it is quite small for an acre. 48 and + would be much better
