Big fish

Does anyone frequently bid on larger landscape and irrigation projects? I'd say larger as in 50k +. How do you determine your limit?

you determine your comfort zone by the number of employees you have and the size jobs you have done.

$185,000 was highest bid ever. big walmart expansion. local low ballin co did it for about 2k profitt, probably. i been fixin a lot of their jobs, so im waitin for the call. had a few others over $50k, but those went to that lowballin co, or else the customer was smokin crack and thought it could be done for a couple hundred $$$. ive even bid on $100k/year mow/maint jobs, but again, the desperate people that like to limbo do it as their full time job.
