    Had to laugh when I saw a bid for that price for a bi weekly cut/ trim.

    I'm at 2x that amount.

    all I can say is good luck.

    You're doing well. My best one so far is .57 acre at $45.00. Minimal trimming and objects in the way.

    In my area I try to average between $50 and $60 an hour for mowing, now this does not include drive time, just unloading and mowing.

    Bi-weekly?

    This time of year you need it every 4-5 days.

    I mow at least once every week except during dry spells.

    1/2 acre depending on how difficult ranges from $35-$55/cut for me. Thats just about .5 to .75hr pull up to pull away.

    I just got a weekly 18,000 sq ft for $45 but he wants me to bag and haul, neither of which I do. I told him I would bag around the pool area but mulch the front and sides and he could see what he thinks of it. If not I'm going to have to time it with his garbage day:rolleyes:
