    How much would you charge to mow, trim, and edge this property?

    Is it off barron road? Looks like your in my neck of the woods.

    $35-40 depending how close your other accounts are.

    Assuming we can get into the backyard with at least a 52" mower, our cost would be $38-45.00 per mowing based on a weekly service. However, the first thing I would rec. to you is to determine what your cost per hour of operation are for your company based on your equipment and overhead. Then put your price to it based on that. Although many of us seem to be very close in pricing, everyone's use-rates, costs and overhead are all different. Take the time to know yours and price the job accordingly.

    With all due respect to all my peers on here, don't trust us to price your job. If we could trust our competition for pricing our jobs, the failure rate for the industry would not be so high. Just think about it.

    Make it one yard at a time and they all add up!

    Good luck.

    Ahh yes, the pricing game again.

    Like others here, I would price in MN at $35-$40 for this type of lawn.
    Well cared for property, hence edging must be done.

    The reason I said 12 dollars a week because he asked how much to charge this yard a week... For christ sake, Just bid it what do you think it worth. how long would it take to do it.. Don't ask us how much we would charge for it.. We can't go by the pics.. Something like that would cost about 35 dollars a week.. and I charged minimum of 25 dollars for a tiny yard..
