    Hello!

    We have never serviced a cemetery so any helpful advice would be appreciated.

    What would a good ballpark price be to quote this cemetery? There doesn't seem to be a ton of headstone, but possibly a fence.. haven't seen it in person yet.

    Thanks in advance

    $1,000......

    We can't answer this. You haven't even seen it yet. We need WAY more info before even trying to provide an educated guess....

    What kind of equipment do you have?
    Are you doing this every week?
    Are you doing this monthly?
    Is this in every other week property?
    Do you have to trim around all the headstones every week?
    Are you limited to certain days or hours of operation?
    What's the spacing between the stones?
    Is it only mowing work?
    Are you insured?
    Do you have the capacity to bring on a job like this?
    What's your operating cost per hour?

    Thank you for your response. I should clarify a few things:

    I'm not looking for a deep dive into my numbers for an estimate from the people on here, rather I am looking for a rough guess for example: $200-450. Nothing concrete.

    There won't be any limitations on when we can service it and yes trimming around all headstones.

    Again, thank you for replying!

    answer this.. do you know if they want it cut weekly, every other week or once a month.. that is the base important question.. you can not develop a basement price before anything else till you know that requirement..

    Easily $1,000-1,200 a month. Even then... time yourself... and you might be tight.
