$25 sounds about right to me.

Both are electric - they are set to meet me Monday (mom w/the teen), I'll see what the teen says when he sees the areas. Thanks for all the opinions.

$10/hour sounds about right. Minimum 1 hour weed eating, mowing. That's what I would charge and I'm not a kid.

Neighborhood teen? Homemade cookies. Dr pepper and slice of pie. If they do it all summer long, maybe toss in a hundred at the end of a season. That small amount should just be a good deed for the day. Take maybe 10 min if you described the area correctly.

It'd take 5, maybe 10 minutes to push the mower around that yard. And no equipment to lug around? That's a $10 job.

I'm still waiting to meet up w/the mother and teen. She said she was coming by Tues. evening @ 6:30 - nothing, no phone call, etc. (I made sure she had my number) - She sent me a FB message @ midnight that the day got away from them, etc. - Anyway, I plan to ask first what the teen thinks, neighbors were over that evening an think $10 is plenty because they said it should take more than 20 mins. - I'll see........
