It depends on who you ask.
If you ask the "undocumented workers" who cut grass with dull blades, their rate per man hour is around $20 - $25.
If you ask the low baller who doesn't know his costs who might provide a quality of service that could range anywhere from poor to outstanding, they won't know what you are talking about but you can calculate it out to be about $30 - $35 per man per hour.
If you ask an average lawn company who provides an average to below average quality of service, their rate per man hour is around $35 - $45
If you ask one of the better lawn companies who provide an average to above average quality of service, their rate per man hour is around $45 - $55.
If you ask one of the lawn companies who provide outstanding quality of service to select clientele that expect only the best, their rate per man hour is $60 and up.
