I have a 4 acre one thats yr round. Don't know if your looking yr round or per cut. I know its crazy but I have cut this by myself a time or 2. With yours you are probably looking 3hrs cutting and 1.5hrs trimming. If I were you I would charge and hrly rate. (These time are by yourself)

Don't forget also an .5 to 1.0hr picking up before you start. And if you don't already know it is a load of work but it can be good $.

3x normal rate for same amount of turf.


You may not get the deal, but anything less and you will hate yourself everytime you cut it.
