      That could easily take 2 full days to complete with all that trimming. So if you figure it takes...oh lets say 20 hrs to complete and if you base it on $60/hr that would be $1,200.00. That would be my lowest price doing it solo with a crew than a lot more. But I'm new too so don't take my word for it, that's just what I would bid.

        I currently do 15 mobile homes in a park I live in. I charge $20 for each one. None of them take me more then 15 min to do by myself. I am new to this business so I don't know if thats a good price or not. I did it at that price to get some costumers and referrals and it has worked for me. I still make a profit off of each one but it is very small profit but the referrals were worth it. Hope this helps.

            $15 -$20 seems reasonable. if he wants to know how much for each. go and make a list of the ones that are smaller and have less trimming. those price at $15 and the bigger ones or with more trimming price at $20. It's hard to imagine them taking more than about 20 minutes to mow.

            You are looking at $1050 - $1600

            approximately 18 to 28 hours worth of work... 2 to 3 days depending on how fast and how long you work.
