    I might go 10% less if the customer and the lawns don't appear to be a hassle.

    man, i'd love to get $78-87 per acre around here. based on your 260-290 per average.... i priced it at $135. shouldn't take more then 2 hours and if it does then i need to work on my estimates.

    I'd be hard pressed to get $120 for it in my area, unless the folks are just loaded.
