What services and average size of yards to do that in this time frame by yourself? It takes me around 1 to 1 1/2 hours for 1 to 1 1/2 acre yard with a small WB by myself - and that's to trim, edge, cut, blow, and walk around pick up trash/dead branches/roll up hoses and so on.

You can't charge extra because it takes you twice as long to do the job because you have crappy or outmoded equipment.

And, if they don't pay, put a shovel upside their head.
