    Time, not size, determines price. It's easier (and faster) cutting a 1 acre empty lot, than a 1/2 acre lot with a house , pool , swing set, garden, ect.

    I tend to bid a little higher than a comparable residential job. It's a line item business expense to a commercial account that is a write-off for them.

    sf for mowing = $1-5 per/m
    lf for trim/edge = .50 - $1 per 100/lf
    cut per acre = $28-55
