    Just kinda curious as to what you guys are charging per acre (average). My rate is usually around $50 per.

    I don't charge per acre. The mowing part is the quickest and easiest part. Determine the amount of weedeating and edging to determine your price.

    Haveing a "SET" price list or minimum for me and my crew, especially when I (the owner) am not there. What you have to remember is the extra time and cost involved in weed eating and edging things like flower beds, fences, and the sort. Make sure on flyers with price list that you note these prices are minimums and that extra stuff cost extra. Good luck
