This is my first commercial property to bid on it is 3.80 acres of grass cutting and trimming around a large factory building and trees.

Trimming will take about 1hr.

What would a good price be for this type of job? How much should I charge per acre? How much should I charge per hour?

I was figuring on $75.00 per acre. for a total of $300, is that to much or too low? Should I charge extra for all the trim time?

I need alot of advise on this one guys!!!!!

Hi Paradise Lawn and Pool,

Welcome to our forum.

How long do you think it would take you to service the entire property?

My best guess is between 3 to 4 hrs. to do the entire job. Maybe even 5 hrs.
