    I have charged anywhere from $30/acre for flat wide open easy mowing to $55/acre for lots of obstacles and a higher degree of difficulty.

    I have a property that I was maintaining this past fall for $165/cut for 5.5 acres that took just under 2.5 hrs. I also had a site that was the highest degree of difficulty and it was $175/cut for 3 acres.

    Hope this helps.

    In this area, the going rate for a nicely landscaped 1 acre lot is 70.00 assuming all or most of it can be mowed with a 50" - 60" ztr type machine. If it involves a large amount of trimming or edging, the price would go up $10 - $20 .:)
  5. where im at the people who hire an acre or more are most times the rich.IF its in the richest village we have charged 100 an acre and that to our surpise was the lowest bid on three different properties .But in most areas around here its 45 a half acre as that by far is what most people have
