I've maintained a cemetery for many years and it seems to be you are fretting too much about the work needing to be done. Establish and hourly rate, give them a ballpark estimate. Do the work, fine tune your price and stick to it. Work is work, doesn't matter if it is a cemetery, church, whatever. I would not let them lowball you, if they don't want to pay then walk away. Simple as that. I'd jump on the job if I were you! Do a good job and you'll pick up more business from the church goers who see what a good job you do!

I am a solo operation and the biggest mower I have is a Gravely 52in ztr.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
It would be cool if you could use Google maps for the property and then post the pics for people to see..
