    i'm knew at commercial properties how is the best way to bid Apts? there is a new complex here in our small town. It has 4 large buildings setting on about 5 acres, most of it is just flat ground. The Buildings and sidewalks and parking lot are all right in the center of the property, so really all to mow is around the property and a few small areas in the center. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated THANKS

    Welcome to Lawnsite! You will learn a lot here. Since most topics have been covered before the best thing to do is click on search in the upper right of your screen. I did this and found a thread that might be of some help to you.
    If this does not answer your question try another search. If you still can't find the answer then post your question again.

    Good luck,

    Hi welcome, I do several apts and like doing them. It all depends on the equipment you have. i have a 61" mid mount Great Dane Z.
    Dependind on the veriables Id say from 175. up to 400. would be tyhe price rang it depends on where your at, the going rate in your aera, just exactly what they want.
    No one can give you an exact quote over the net. Just an aproximation.
    One I have similar I get 250.00 for.

    We would calculate the acreage at 28-32 dollars per and then multiply it by a degree of difficulty (1.5 up to 3) depending on how terrain was, obstacles, people, objects to move etc.

    Here is how we calculate trimming and edging. Hope this helps too.

    Welcome abaord!!
