People with brains come to the realization that they don't want to babysit and understand they will have to pay for no headaches. Bid your price I think you may be surprised in the outcome. Best of luck to you.

Yes. It is needed. There are a lot of plants. We are there for 32/MH per month. Keep in mind we don't cut the grass either.

Wow, impressive property.

I saw the property owner has banks? Is he a real estate guy, a banker? What is his occupation because I am in the wrong field! Lol

Yes its doable in a day, but with how many people? Your not going to do it solo in a day or even two. Be lucky to get the trimming done.

I'd be in the $1400-$1600 range.

How long does it take you to mow 85 acres?

$1865/cut. 43 cuts/year=$80,195

80,195/12=6,682.92 per month

Apply primo maxx to entire fenceline and obstacles after first trim to keep your labor and sanity

Nobody cares how hard you work, they care how good it looks
