Long story short, my father in law has mowed an old cemetary since he was a kid. That got passed onto my Wife, and once we met...passed to me. It is 2.7 acres, seperated into 2 sections by the driveway. One side is much larger, with less stones. For the past 9 years I have mowed the smaller side, which is much older (very soft, sunken graves!) and stones placed in varying rows...nothing even. This past fall I got the whole cemetary by default, the commercial operation who did the large side gave it up... I do pretty well with the mowers I have, a 33 inch Cub walk behind, the chinsey Lowe's special Toro 42 inch z-turn, and a few Echo weedwhackers... I operate solo, with nothing but Gatorade, Skoal, and my MP3 player....start to finish...7 hours. Mind you I am not rushing through to get to the next contract, this is the only lawn I do for now (looking to branch out next year), so I do not mind taking what I consider to be a long time - there is ALOT of weedwhacking...... The kicker was when I got paid for the first time doing the whole thing...... $100 bucks a side! $200 bucks for 7 hours work! Next year, the price goes up!
