If you do that already then why can't you figure out a price for the 5 acre site?

It's gonna take you around 2 hours if its mostly open area. Knowing that you can now add your hourly rate then tack on a $ amount you want to profit. Good Luck! Bigger lawns can be a huge profit loss if you lack the experience in bidding.

Seems to me at 60 per hour you will make out

So you cut a 5 acre complex already and can't figure out what another 7 acres will take?

There are two ways to figure it. 1- take te price for the 5 acre complex divide by 5 and the multiply by 7. Should give u the price.

Or

Take the time it takes to do the 5 acre complex divide by 5. That will give you what you an mow in and hour. Then do the math to figure the 7 acre place

Prices vary tremendously on this site. You will find a range per acre of $20-200 per acre if you search.
