    everybody will answer you different on this one. Do a search and put in "price per acre" and you will get numerous threads. Depends on what your overhead is and how much you want to make per hour. Good luck

    i think that the best answer i've heard for this is that "IT depends" b/c you can't go by the size of the property considering you have to factor in how many trees you must mow around, hills to mow, etc. and etc.. You can have several properties at an acre but different rates for each of them.
    but like sooner said, do a search and you'll find MANY other answers as to figuring out rates!
