    Does any one measure areas of grass to be mowed then figure sq. footage? Then charge by sq.foot. If so ballpark how much per sq. foot.

    There are too many variables like: neighborhood, slope, type of grass, decks, toys, fences, dogs, sizes, clientele, routing issues, type of equipment, on and on and on.

    Pick an hourly rate that is profitable and estimate your time on the property.

    so just figure your expence per cut .
    then how much do you want to make.
    add them together.
