Your price to mow this overcrowded yard? (pictures included)

Mow, blow, edge (with sting trimmer), and weedeat. This is pretty steep incline in the back yard. There is tons of obstacles in the back which makes it a pain to mow with a ztr. What's your price?

takes me about an hour and a half solo. There is also some areas on the side of the house that I have to take out the 21 inch.

I'm not seeing the steep incline. Is there a pic of it? Does it have to be done with a string trimmer or 21"? All I am seeing is a gentle slope going down towards the water or do my eyes deceive me?

Hour and a half and you have to use the 21", I would charge $75. Mowing around all that crap and looks like you might have to move some lawn furniture out of the way every time you cut, that's going to get old quick.

oh man, big minus for lawn furniture, that's extra If you have to vertical trim around those trees, i'd take that into consideration. 60 is about what i'd say.
