    $60/hr clean-ups. Minimum of $35/mow. $60/acre on large accounts up to three acres, $50/acre after that. Around here guys are mowing for as little as $20/mow on 1/2 acre lots, I don't see how they survive, hopefully they won't. Anyone who won't pay my prices I don't mess with because that is what it takes for me to make money and that's what I'm in this for. I have people who haven't even sneezed at my prices, but there are some that tell me they will think about it, of course you never hear back from those, but I already have 62 properties in one month of being in business so I'm not too high.
