    If it requires some type of drive, that is more important than what you quote them. How much extra time and gas will it take to get to this yard? Probably much more time than it takes to do the yard.

    I do mine for free. It takes me about an hour and a half.

    BS. I honestly think you have no idea of what you are talking about. Part of the cost is not just in the lawn, it is the drive to/from and loading and unloading of equipment. Whether it is an acre or 5,000 square feet you still have the cost of the drive and the time wasted loading and unloading equipment.

    if they are wanting weekly and it is around other properties of yours on the same days then 25. If it is bi weekly 30. If it is a one time job charge as much as you possibly can. A lot of times a nice car in the driveway can give you an idea of their budget.
