Bidding on weekly cutting at a local pool

Just got a request from a local pool to cut their grass on a weekly basis. I have to submit a bid, anyone have any experience with cutting a private swimming club grounds. It would be weekly, but a wierd times, most likely early weekend mornings or something as guests use it throughout the day during the summer....any suggestions?

Hi vac

I agree that you need to vacuum bag as much as possible and I would not do it on a windy day as previously stated. If you plan on a different manner of cutting, I would talk it over with the management and put a clause in the contract that states that your opinion is this and if you fail to follow the recomemdation, you assume the risk of not accepting professional advice.

its a mid-size area, it tends to be more of an issue of an oddly shaped area with picnic area with grass on one side, grass by kiddie pool, grasss at back of property, and grass area with cornhole boards and volleyball court
