How much does one charge to cut one acre?In the NY area.
i cut an acre for $50.00
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
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 got one word for both of you guys LOWBALLA. I barely let the trailer gates down for 35.
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.?
