    I have a client that wants me to bag their clippings, how should I charge. Going to look at lawn tomorrow. Client states yard is approximately 1 acre.

    If you dont normally bag, I would charge about 30% more than normal.

    When I bag, I double the price of a normal cut.

    I charge double because it takes me AT LEAST twice as long...even with my Ultravac.Usually though,once I explain to the customer how unnecessary it is and that the lawn will look just as good after mulching(unless it's real,real thick) they tell me to just mulch it.

    I agree, I heavily favor mulch and if they want me to bag no matter what I charge for time and removal. What a pain!
