    i was bored so i did some figuring and my best lawn i do comes out to about .0023 per square foot. most of my regulars only come out to about half that number. so, give your best numbers. price/area.

    600 on a 6 acre lot which equals to 100 an acre.

    6 Acres is not a lawn. there maybe a lawn in there. but most would call that property or acreage or land, or rough cutting, or any of the other things it would be called but not a lawn. Not trying to be rude. Just from the information you gave that is what most are going to come up with.

    I kind of agree. 6 acres is very different than a yard. Most of my yards are 1/4 to 1/8 acre parcels. And that is what I am targeting with door hangers as well.
