    I would have rented a brush mower, like $80 a day. Then mowed the spots that were grass with a regular mower. Also could use a brush blade on my trimmer for hard to get areas.

    Probably charge around $500 bucks, but that's just a guess from the pics.

    Any dumping of those old tires and stuff would be extra.

    What exactly did you have to do at this job other than the brush?

    No junk removal, just mow and basic trim.

    It took you 1 full day? What did you end up charging?

    Total time was 4 hours.
    Billed $260, and they gave me $50 tip.

    Had a tire go flat, no big deal it had 1300 hours on it. And lost a lynch pin, also no big deal all it did was hold the deck stand in the deck. So that's a buck. And I used 4 trimmer lines on my brush trimmer.

    I think I would have been at around $350-$400. And I would have tossed a brush blade on my trimmer for some spots. I don't like projects like these, so I price them high enough that if I do get the work, I don't spend the whole time wishing I were dead.
