    I was planning to target larger properties for next year when today I received a call for a 5 acre bid. I am not looking for prices... just what kind of time you would base your price on. How many man hours would it take you or should it take you. If you want to state what you market will bear... feel free.

    Other factors to consider: This job is 16.3 miles (or 20-25 mins) one way. No other jobs in this location.. none on the way either. Lawn is fairly level... but as is typical here.. a pretty bumpy ride.

    I have 8 pictures to load.. so wait 'til they do.

    Here's the left side

    I use a 61" and my guess is 3.5-4.0 hrs from start to finish. I would charge about $225. Doesnt look like theres a ton of trimming just a lot of mowing. Looks like a nice kick back and relax job.
