    Calling all lawn people out there..

    What would you charge to mow a soccer field.. it is hard to say how big it is.. but we just mowed it and rode one of those zero turn radius mowers at mostly full speed.. for the last 4 hours.. what would you charge to mow it weekly..

    it is all field with a few trees around the edges.. pretty smooth.. not alot of bad stuff now that we mowed all through it..

    On large parcels I usually charge 20 dollars an hour, small ones with a lot of trimming it goes way up to 60 dollars an hour. When I get the five foot mower after it I can do around two acres an hour. I know it sounds high but you have just moved your maintence costs on your equipment way up.

    Have you tried calling around to see what others charge? That would probably give you a good idea. Also see what kind of equipment they are using. Make sure you factor in equipment maintenance in your price.
