    Hi I am new to the buisness and haven't started yet and I don't plan to start until the spring. I have a friend that has been doing landscaping for few years now and was telling me about some of his accounts. He has one in in a very rich neighborhood. It's a 2 acre lot and he only charges $40 a week to mow it. I told him thats way to low that he should be at about $100 for that customer. He told me that was way to high and can't get that much for 2 acres. My question is what is the going rate around NH. What would you guys charge for an average 2 acre lot.

    $90-120 depending on how many beds/walks, etc. needing trimming
