    that's not an answer, it's a question. like i said, "what would YOU CHARGE to mow this property."

    The type of mower that can be used on the property makes a drastic difference in the amount of time it takes to mow. And since most people charge based on the time it'd take to mow, clarification is needed.

    When you are searching for an answer to something you OBVIOUSLY DON'T KNOW, then it would behoove you to find out why he asked you about your equipment. How about this....how much did you charge? and why?
    Bids are made, usually, by how long it will take you to do the job and the size of mower will determine that.

    wow, did i punch in the wrong info, and end up in a mental ward? ok, i'll try to make it even simpler. i'm assuming blade-o-grass lawn service, owns lawn mowers. ok, using blade-o-grass's lawn mowers, how much would blade-o-grass charge, to mow the above mentioned property?

    I'm relatively new to this forum but the way you to talk to people after asking them for advice... I don't see how you haven't been given the boot from this forum.

    Anyhow. It's a simple question. What kind of mower will this lawn allow? Some lawns require smaller mowers to get into tighter spaces, through fences, or just due to owner preferences.

    It's a simple question and you're spending more time trying to belittle other members than it would take you to just answer it.
