    I have residential yards but what about businesses. What can you tell me about the bid process for businesses and what is a ballpark figure to charge per acre?

    Hi Adurham,

    Things you may want to consider is how long would it take you to service this property and how much do you charge per hour?

    audurham - what kind of overhead do you have? what kind of mowers? how fast can you move? gas prices? insurance? paying employees? repairs? mainenance?

    it all adds up and it is all different for each company. you need to charge what YOU need to charge.
