$35.00 min for me. Unless you could have them sign a 1 year contract and offer savings if they prepay. High profile customer that has high profile friends that could give you lots of referrals, I would offer some type of referral savings to give them some discounts while adding loot to your pocket.

To just mow and go.....$35.00

$30-$35 using my 48". btw, you can't justify higher prices because your equipment is smaller.

Is this your formula for any size yard to include an acre?

Nope that is just for regular size lawns. any larger has different prices. For me that is just an easy way to bid.

$35. I think you can justify a higher price bobby if the customer asks you to use a 21 vs 48 inch mower.
