a long story short, I bid a resi job for a lot that is 50 x 160ft.
there is a small house on it and a bit of trimming.
I bid it at $40.
the lady was shocked and said that she had bids for 55 to 70 dollars.
its all level,

I guess I am to low, anyone have any thoughts for my area market?

Gates? maybe if it all requires a 21"

Round here the big companies with cheap laborors charge $22 for a 5K sq ft lawn.

I'm north of Pittsburgh. I'd probably bid it about 40.

ok cool, so I am right around the average.
when she told me 55 to 70 I couldnt belive it.

I will try to find out who bid it at $70.

maybe they didnt want it.

thanks for the replys.
