    Like it has been said by quite a few people, I think you need to decide on your hourly rate you want per man and do figures from there. Each lawn is so different. A lawn with a swing set, a dozen trees, a trampoline, etc has to be charged differently than an equal sized lawn with nothing in the way. Things have to be done individually. It might be a bit more of a pain up front to measure and check things out, but in the long run you're probably doing yourself a favor doing some extra calculations.
