    I think $80 is about right.

    Did you get the homeowner's permission to take pictures of their yard to post online?

    Didn't you just post a bunch of pictures of a yard you didn't do? Besides why on earth would you think you need permission to post pictures of a yard on the Internet. Oh wait you apparently feel its ok.

    That's amazing that a 16 year old knows what the market can bare in his area or are you just guessing?

    I would say 70$ min just think how much if the yard was totally empty and then add $ for all the headaches. So for me I would say 60 + 10 to 15 $

    Here's the rule of thumb-You can't go by what people on here tell you to charge. What someone charges in Connecticut is going to be completely different from what you'd charge in Ga. You can only charge what the market will bear and what you think your customer will pay. You have to feel the customer out and that's something only you can do. You also have to charge according to your overhead and what you are willing to mow it for-you combine all those factors and come up with a price. If you charge based on others opinions, you'll be out of business in no time flat. Good luck.

    I'm seeing a 25-30 min lawn cut with my set up with a 2 man crew. The back yard would be easy as can be with my ZTRs id bag it. It's shade and weak I wouldn't even get a full barrel on the trac vac from it. I could do the entire yard with my 60 inch lazer and my employee would trim edge and blow off in that time frame. In summer that may even drop to a 20 min lawn.

    probably 65 for me, and like kelley said looks like the whole thing could be done with a 60" mower so 25 mins probably quicker, the front looks pretty small.
