    How would you price a lawn job the took 2.5 hours to cut with a 36 ferris walkbehind and requries about 45 minutes with a weed whacker.

    figure out your bottom line. once you found that number out decide on how much you'd like to profit from that job. if it was very labor intensive then charge a little extra.

    Somebody with a 60" deck would probably do it in 1 hr 15 minutes to 1 1/2 hrs. Probably charge $75 to $90.
