    Charge what the market will bear and what you want to make.

    I'd guess $150 (depending on your bagger size. . .and assuming you would use a 60" ztr) + trim, edge, and blow time.

    $150.00 huh?
    Good luck with that price...........................
    That's why people with acreage don't get it bagged.
