Yeah, say for instance you're looking at a 3/8 acre lot, what I would say is 'this type of lot costs 35 dollars to cut and trim.'
If they say yes, great.
Otherwise, I would say 'thank you for your time' and turn around and leave.

So, give them the price they requested, yes or no, and thank you.
It's very simple.
