    Please give a little more information. One time mow / weekly service / biweekly?? If one time mow, how high and what type of grass? Rough cut or finish cut?

    I try to bid all my "regular service" mow jobs at $1.5 / minute +/- based on any other work might be involved. Since you are mow only at this job, if it took me 2 hrs. I'd probably charge $180.00, as long as it's clean i.e. no rocks, sticks, a lot of crap to mow around etc. Hope this helps.
