Trying to please a new customer

Hey guys I have a new neighbor that I approached about doing his lawn maintenance. He signed on but he wants me to power wash and either stain or brighten his fence(depends on the cost). The fence is 5 foot tall 3" dog eared cedar pickets and he wants both sides done a total of 600 linear feet can anyone shoot me a price for each one for power washing one for spraying the brightener and for stain. Thanks

For cleaning and staining, not including cost of stain, you want to gross around 1.25 -1.75 per sq. ft.

Do you mean linear foot because $1.75 sq ft for 600ft x 5ft would be over $5000.00 dollars. He told me he was gonna do it himself anyway because another guy bid it at $450.00 just to powerwash and he thought that was high so i never gave him my price because i didnt want to lose the mowing business. Sounds like my new neighbor is a tight**s

Sounds to me that your neighbor is high not the price and who ever gave a price of $450 is too!
