    What to charge a guy to mow 3/4 of an acre, no trim, no blow, just cut. Twice a month. He's too old to do it, claims it straight land, just wants a price.

    Thanks :)

    what kind of equipment you using??
    what condition is the turf/grass/weeds?
    is it rough?

    I would assume you have not seen the property yet, that this was a phone call, right? Sounds like someone looking for the cheapest on the block, not at all interested in quality or company. I would not give a price to anyone without first seeing the property. If he says, " well, just a ballpark price will do, I won't hold you to it"..., RUN fast, and don't look back...you know he is a PITA in sheep's clothing waiting to suck you in..lol
