    Hi guys I was wondering what the going rate is per acre?? I herd and go by $60-$65 an acre.So what do you charge payup
    Also what do charge if the grass is higher than normal??

    I know this has probably been posted a million time's before,but I'm not 100% sure on my price's??

    $75 for 2 to 2.5 acres because of all the damn scrubs around here. I have a $35 minimum.

    Down here guys seem to be going with about $50 but that is only if there is more than one acre involved. Kind of like when you buy more the cheaper it gets. You figure if you are mowing a property with 6 acres you will make a little less than if you were to have to drive to 6 seperate 1 acre lots however by mowing 6 at one stop you have less down time in travel meaning you are not paying guys to ride all day and you also save in fuel. You also may need to adjust the price according to how much detail work is involved.
