1000 sq.ft = Mow $29.00 Fert. $18.00
1500 sq.ft = Mow $30.00 Fert. $18.00
2000 sq.ft = Mow $31.00 Fert. $19.00
. blah blah blah
. blah blah blah
. blah blah blah
22,000 sq.ft = Mow $64.00 Fert. $51.00

does this sound pretty accurate??? Or does everyone pretty much say... "Yeaaa.... this lawn will take me an hour... gimme' $30.00"???
that 22k sqft price sounds about what i charge...the fert sounds a little high tho...

Your mowing prices sound a little high to me..at least for this area and the fert. sounds a little low. No way could I get $30 for 2500 sq ft. I do have a minmum $25 and would follow under that. I would charge something like $55 for a 15K sq ft lawn to fert and squirt.
