2 Acre Lawn Estimate

There is someone who is looking to have their 2 acre yard cut once, I typically do seasonal contracts so I provide cheaper prices per cut. What would you guys recommend? Considering the one cut I'm sure its a bit out of hand.

For big mows, I base my price on my hourly rate. Then for one time cuts, add at least an hour. Be sure you look at it first so you don't agree to something thats over your head.

Sounds good, what is your hourly rate? Mine is $35 right now.

Dude, 35 is way to low. that would be a 2 acre job around 70 bucks which is no good. My hourly rate is about 60 and I can and will adjust that up and down depending on the jobs but never severely

I won't waste my time unless a job is 30, only reason I'd do less is if the guy lives in my neighborhood and I can walk their
