    I just want to know, what you all charge per acre? I have a job that is 3 acres and I am curious what a good estimate would be to charge to mow, trim, and edge every other week.

    If lawn is smooth, flat, few trees, edging and trimming is lite. Then, a minimum of $135 per week with an annual agreement of course. Every 2 weeks add 50% of the weekly cost then round-up. Good Luck. :D

    It also depends on the size of the mower as well

    I usually get $50 per acre with minimal trimming. I am in the northeast. The going rate where I live is between $50-65 per acre. I am a solo operator.
