    Are you just knocking down the weeds or are you going to fix it up? The lot looks rough. Are there bed around the trees or roots?
    What is the sq. foot and what is the trim edge and string trim area. If that is all there is I think you should be able to get this done in under an hour, solo, with a 48". What about leaves in fall as those are big trees.

    Thats all of it, no there are no beds around the tree's and yes, the leaves will do me good in the fall.

    whatever you decide to charge, be sure to include a fee to cleanup the grass growing in the cracks between the curb and the street. this would complete the job

    not trying to be rude or anything...but i would ask him why he wants it bagged...it doesn't look like "nice" grass. i would probably watch out...he may let you do it every week for a while then want every two or three and you would be taking 2 or 3 times the grass off. Just a thought.
