    I am thinking about bidding on mowing this property. A couple years back I worked there and we use to mow it on our own, with 2-3 guys it would take just about a day to mow and weedwack the whole place. I was wondering what you would roughly charge per week to mow this? Some places won't need to be mowed every week as the grass doesn't grow all that great in certain areas. Here are some pics, you can roughly tell what areas need to be mowed.

    Let me know what you think.

    it takes 3 guys 8hrs to cut it? that means it would take me 24hrs solo. 3 days. $1000 per cut at least.

    Have you measured it out? If so how many sq ft is it?

    No, I have never measured it out. The pictures are kind of deceiving as some of the areas (esp. in the second pic) are steep slopes with brush on them and those don't need to be mowed, but it still is a pretty good sized area.
