    well we get $35 for 1/4 acre so $140 an acre $280 for 2 acres $420 for 3 acres a week i usually do an acre for $100 and ever acre after that is also $100 so 5 acres $500 a week. but you got alot of stuff to mow around depending on how long it will take is how i would charge though

    The last cemetary I drove past I thought to myself "Man how do those guys mow that?" I wouldn't have the slightest clue how to bid that but just think about all the trimming if there are a ton of headstones. THAT IS A LOT OF TRIMMING. You might wanna ask this in the commercial thread area. Those guys might know a little more
