    goodluck but you will never get a job charging that price per acre doesnt matter how much trimming is invloved. Man hours doesnt really matter in mowing some guys may take 30 hrs for a 5 hour crew that screws off but a real crew that works diligently could get it done in 22 hours.... 36 acres is a lot of grass to cut. At highest you could charge would be $50 an acre for that amount of acres. and if you guys are mowing at 30/pr man hour you might as well stop mowing because thats low balling
