Also why some guys make it, and some don't.

Those rolling wheel things look very professional and all. But as stated, they don't replace experience. Walking the property is an essential part of the bid. A few minutes spent on the front end can prevent an awkward situation if you under bid because you were too lazy or busy to walk it and see what's really there. Once I give a price, I stick to it. So yeah, I measure, but that's only one part of the equation. Hills, slopes, number of mature trees, gate size, irrigated or not, estimated trimming and edging time. Even parking and yard access for material delivery are worthy considerations.
