Quick Thoughts on Bid

I am bidding few apartment complexes for 1 management company. One is about 350,000sqft. There scope of work is mow, trim, & blow only! Does $460/mow sound reasonable? I figured it would take my men 4-5 hours to do (3man crew. Thanks in advance!

A lot of variables. How much trimming? Blowing parking lots and sidewalks? Bagging around the building? Irrigation and fertilizer?
