    When figuring a mowing bid should I add the cost of the liabiblty insurance to the bid or should I just take it out of my hourly mow rate which is $50 hr. for me. I'm solo.

    It comes out of your hourly rate. Its part of your operating costs. (General Overhead) Direct costs should be included in the bid.........materials used for that particular job.

    That should be included in overhead which should bring you to your hourly rate needed and then ability to bid
