So, you get $160 per acre for mowing?

So no one figured out that mowing 4 times a month for 150 each time is 600. And mowing every other week for 300 each time is still 600 a month. So how are they saving money?

for my area that's a very good price. I do a 2 acre property for an even $100. and everybody elses prices are about the same around here because there is so much competition.

don't know about the OPs area. but in my area, I could drive 1 mile and see 10 lawn trailers, on a sunday. not even exaggerating.

I would have accepted the $300 price.

yes we get it the price is the same either way. the point is either way they are getting ripped off by the lawn company mowing their yard. average price is $50 per acre where i live. that would be $200 a mow bi weekly which would be $400 a month. i can see the $150 a week price. that makes sense to give them a discount since they are getting it done every week.

if they want to pay less they should get you to do it for $200 every two weeks.

Different areas bare different prices. No one is getting ripped off. Why are trailers in the southern states a grand cheaper?

Built here with non union labor, close to the ports where foreign steel is off loaded, no transportation cost as the dealers usually pick up. Some manufacturers will sell to the consumer directly.
