    This is a very difficult question to answer without some assumptions. Assuming there is no obstacles, no edging, no bagging, and no trimming then forty to sixty bucks per cut.

    It would help if you provided more details.

    i know :laugh::laugh: you should try to give a answer that really confuses people to the point that some think your serious some think your joking and some are just lost.

    all the "what do i do with the leaves" questions start at this time. so im telling every one that "we just call a day in advance for a burn permit and burn them on site, its best to burn them on the driveway or paver patio because the hard surface make clean up a breeze" it gets good replies.

    Do they want it to look nice. Being only twice a month it could get kinda tall. If they want it to look nice you'll probably have to bag it or cut it more than once so be sure to take that into account

    since it's a little more than an acre and you won't be getting the every week cut then I'd say $110/cut would be a fair price.
