    Same here, I'd LIKE to get 60 and I've tried for many years and 60 really IS what an acre should go for...
    But, I get 50 :laugh:
    Sometimes 55.

    I get $35 and people are upset about it. Other guys charge $50 in the area but because I am not a big company they think it will be for nothing. I work in NY on my other job sometimes maybe I need to move.

    I think it would depend on the acre.. lots of beds/walks to edge or trimming to do? I have a lawn that's about 36,000sf that I charge $75 because of the aforementioned.

    If the acre was a nice, clean, flat piece of lawn without any obstacles I'd do it for 40.

    If it's littered with trees, plants, and flower beds the price goes up simply cause it takes longer.

    I will wave hello to you as you drive by.

    A clean acre of grass takes less than 30 minutes to cut and be loaded and headed to the next job.

    For one acre I'd probably chare about $50-65 depending on obstacles. But for multiple acres it goes down.

    When you talk about a one acre lawn, are you talking about an acre of grass, or is one acre the total property counting the driveway, house, natural areas, etc.?
