    Think about the time it takes to edge and blow when cars are parked up to the curbs, and somehow they want them to be spotless. Bid it high.

    $10k per month.

    Lol.

    Imagine the commercial as however many residentials put together, without the drive-time between...

    Bid on how many hours you think it will take x the amount you want to gross per hour.

    If you are not bagging or mulching, you need some good insurance. Car dealers will come after you for every scratch and dent they find. It would be hard to have them keep cars away from curbs, you will do alot of trimming. Bid high, it will take longer than you think.

    they were paying about $1,000.00 a month for cutting it twice a month. its about 5 to 6 acers not alot of edging but there is alot of trimming.
