    Hey! How is everyone?
    This is the first time for me to post, but I have read your post for six months or so. I have learned alot. I pretty much stick to mowing but get ask to bid on a few landscape jobs. I dont mind but I cant seem to get the bidding down for landscaping. I just bid on a residential home. Pretty big. About 300 feet of beds. They wanted all of the mulch removed. Well over 3 in deep, about 200 shrubs trimmed, old landscape border removed, replace all mulch with landscape gravel. I bid a four man crew at 100.00 an hour and I figured about 51 hours. The bid was 5,350. Anyway after I submitted the bid the guy emailed and said he was going to get other estimates. He was all about me until I submitted the bid. Is this high? Thanks Ron

    A linear foot. Two in front that is about 100 ft long. One in back. I would say that they are about 4ft wide.
