    I would be interested in knowing what you guys charge per acre? I starting asking around 75.00 per acre but ran into a lot of resistance. It takes me right at 1 hour to cut and around 45 mins to weed eat, edge and blow off the sidewalks. Most people were happier with 55-65 vs. 75.00 dollars

    I charge $40 on most of my lawns, and the overall lot is 1 acre, but there is about 1/3-2/5 taken up by wooded areas, the house, and driveway(s).

    We charged $55-60 an acre. I always asked the customer where we stood with the estimate, majority of the time they said "right in the middle".

    What kind of mower do you use if it takes you 1 hour to mow an acre? and 45 minutes to weed eat. The one acre parcel i do is 1 hour and i am outta there.
