I would say 150.00-175.00 depending on the amount of trimming for a weekly mow price.

Are you including blowing the parking area and picking up trash?

I would say $850 a month, no less than that.

doesn't look like anything to "spring clean" up to me...

Do you get the snow plowing too? That would be awsome cuz thats a good sized lot. I would emagine they'd Cheap out on the plowing since their business is obviously seasonal.

By looking at the arial pic, job looks like it would take 2 guys about 45 min. If I'm in the ball park time wise, I would charge about $85-90 a stop.

I can't say the price for sure from the pics, it's just too hard to determine the area, thou I'd say it looks to be a good acre lot, maybe more.

Only thing I would like to add is the grass would be a prime candidate for some core aeration and seeding, if that's what they mean by spring cleanup, but I also don't get what they mean by that otherwise. I'm assuming 1.3 acres here, so seeding and aeration, throw in some fertilizer and calcium, 400 dollars for the spring spruce up (I think you might can get away with that, call it a booster treatment, but explain it to them lol, not saying pull a fast one, just saying it stands a chance).

Grass cutting, 65-75 in my neck of the woods, just cut and trim. Parking lot is extra, don't know if they want that, but likely another 20-30 dollars, depending.

On the fall cleanup, I don't price leaves until they're on the ground, and I really like to price them after I'm done cleaning them... Either way, I don't give prices on fall cleanups in the spring, it feels too much like a blind bid, and I don't do those anymore. But, figure 15-18 grass-cuts via the above price (so about 1200), then add 800 to the total and that covers you for leaves, plus you might can throw in some mulch and also it will cover trimming of bushes, etc.

I'd guess 2-3 grand a year, but again I don't know for sure, hard to say...

$ I would guess the $150-200 range . Looks like a lot of trimming . They may want you to bag the grass around the pool area for an additional fee. Looks like 2 people can drive up and be finished and re-loaded in 2 hrs or less. I have a simular prop that is about 1/2 that size that pays $75 mow & trim that takes my son and I 45 min.

Judging from the pic, mowing, trimming, and bi-weekly edging around $720-$750 per month. Mowing will take a little extra than normal cause you can't discharge toward the pool, and there isn't much wide open mowing. Lots of trimming. The trimming will probably take almost as long as the mowing. Make sure to ask if the require bagging, if so add another $360-$400 to the monthly price. Find out when nobody will be there so you can mow.

Can't tell what would be needed for a spring cleanup, but it looks like there are some trees in the mix, just make sure to scope it out good before you bid on that. Try to get them to purchase an aeration cause with alot of kids playing on it etc. it will probably need it.
