    If your mowing is a total time of 30 minutes (15min per man) then I would have charged her $25/cut or $800 for the season. If your talking 30 min each (60 min total) then it would be billed at $32/cut or $1024 for the season.

    Your SCU appears to be 1.5/hrs x 2 man crew = 3 man/hrs or $90

    Your FCU appear to be 6/hrs x 2 man crew = 12 man/hrs or $360

    The Ornamental Bed Mgmt extra curricular activities will probably eat up approx 20 man/hrs or $600

    Fert Program incl. Lime would be $300 for 9 apps

    I came up with around $150 w/12 month contract. Maybe I mis-calculated.
