    I want to bid on a commercial scattered site of 1,700,000 sq ft. roughly 40 acres. Can some one give me an approximate of how much to charge?? The sites were previously maintained last season so there isn't really much to prep out there. when I say " scattered sites" I mean they are in one general location. Please help!
