Weed eating job.

Never had to bid on a weed eating job before. I think it will be a good chance to get my foot in the door with these people. Long story short they own a crap ton of rental property's and a few business uptown. How long do you think it will take to weed eat all the red areas. There all fence lines and allot of post to weed around. Some of the area along the woods I can mow but still have to weed eat.


Thought on how long it would take you to do it. And curious on what u would charge.

That's what I'm having a problem with. The time I feel is needed is 6-8 hour of trimming. At 60$ a hour. I thought about throwing the bid out at 400$. I don't wanna lose money but I want my foot n the door to get in with these people.

Way too much time to trim 11 acres. I agree with the others 45 min to 2 hours depending on how tall the trimming is.

Some of the sections has briers. Some of its 2 foot grass. Some of its thick weeds.
