I found out about a bid on a cemetary that needs to be put in by the 31st, and need a little help finding a correct price. I live in a rural area and lawn care doesn't go for as much as in the city. My former boss had a cemetary that we mowed for the past 4 years that was 16 acres with 4 acres being open and the rest had stones sticking out of the ground on it. He charged 340 to only mow and 525 each time he trimmed it which is every other time. The cemetary that I want to bid on is about 7 acres with 1 acre being open and the stones are sticking out of the ground. I talked to the guy taking the bids and asked him if he wanted it bidded on every cutting or a lump sum for the season, and he said lump sum. I asked him how many cuttings to bid the lump sum for and he told me thats up to me. I then asked him how many cuttings there were last year so I could make some kind of figure out and he told me he doesn't know but he thinks its over 12. He gave me horrible info but I guess they just want a low price. What I don't understand is someone can think they are going to cut it 12 times in the year and bid 3000 and then somebody can think they are going to cut it 15 times and bid 3750 and the guy with the lower figure would get it, correct? This bid is really frustrating me because I want it bad!!
