    The research on Lawnsite, was roughly $1/linear foot. +/- based on your overhead, and tool(s) of choice.

    Figure your time. I woman stopped me while out doing lawns and she asked me how much to cut her place. I stop by and the back is overgrown pretty bad but the honda can handle it and a little over growth in the front. I usually charge 30-35 well I tell her $45 and when I come back in the future only 30. her place isnt that big now she wants me back every week. So if you dont make your customer feel like they are being screwed it will pay dividens later.
