pardon me if this question is asked all the time, but i'm trying to come up with a bid. i'm new, so getting the job is important. i work with two other guys and we figure the three of us can finish the job in 6 hours. we'd like to charge $30/hr...so would it be outrageous to charge for $30/hr for 18 hrs? we'll be trimming bushes, trees, hedges that have been neglected for 5 some years and filling in some tiny bare patches on the lawn with seed and hauling out the rubbish. Is $540 for the whole job ridiculous? do people spend that much for maintaining their plants? i should mention this is just outside of the metropolitan area where the more affluent can afford to live in gated communities and all are *very* well off. i really need some solid advice on how to do this bid and some feedback as to how $540 sounds....how would you handle this situation?
