    Need mesurements to even give you a "guestimate" .

    Even then it's a tough call without seeing them ... The only 2 that I didn't look at in person last season(went by square footage that a friend in the spraying business had of the property's) and lost on them..will never do it again. You have to factor in many things ....size ... degree of difficulty .. lin. ft of trimming ... how much weeding ...how much garbage... is it irragated ..number of cuts in the season ...cost of spraying...cost of fert... spring and fall cleanup.

    Go from past experience of how many square meters a hour you can cut ...same with the trimming .lin meters per hour... heck ... I m still learning this maintenance game... do a search ...Im sure there is tons of info on it.
