maybe the grass cutting/basic maint is a lost leader so to speak. get the basic mow blow and go @ cost, and then you get first crack at the "no bid stuff" tree work, flowers, planting, sod, ect....and make it up on the back end...

@ 40bucks an hour that 207 hours...17 hours each week for 12 weeks... or 2 employees one day each week...

even if he screws the pooch and bails on the contract after one year the city has saved 10K, and lowered the pricing down significantly for the following year.

definitely low...but it would be interesting to see what kind of work they do..
