    For that half acre, I'd charge around $45 with trimming (as long as there isn't a substantial amount). If it's wide open, it should take you 15min to mow and maybe another 15 or 20 to trim and clean up.

    If that church is 2.5-3, I would charge between $150-200 without much trimming (maybe a tree here or there). If there is a lot of trimming, then figure out how much you would need to charge per hour, figure out how long you think it would take, and then add that to the estimate. Good luck
