    Two And A Half Acre With A Semi-steep Hill Covering About 1/3 Acre.the Front And Back Are Pretty Flat. No Edging Just Trimming And Blowing. I Charged 75 And They Pay 80$. Just Starting Out With A Newborn Child At Home, So I Need To Be Up To Par On Prices. Thank In Advance From Both Of Us.

    As said before, I would probably double that. Usually the way I price is by the hour. Fromt he time I pull up to the time I leave can be either $50/hr or $60/hr. I am pretty sure nearly 3 acres would take close to 2-3 hours with the blowing and trimming included.

    In your area you should be able to charge more than that. I would get 125 to 175 depending on the amount of trimming. Only one I can and will do cheaper than that is my church. God gets a steep discount from me.
