Commercial Mowing Bid Hello everyone. I have been getting a ton of great info from all of the members on this site and it is a great tool, especially if you are just starting in the business. I have been in the business going on 3 years now and we have grown from year to year. We are adding more commercial accounts this year. Anyways, I really need some ideas on how to bid our latest commercial account. It is a multi-apartment community on an old air force base. Many of the residential lawns are small, but they have huge commons areas behind the units, sort of like a huge courtyard. We went and picked up the bid packet today and it states that there is about 360 acres to be mowed. Any ideas on how to charge for this? The property manager also stated that the last LCO to mow for them had a 6 man crew and that it took them 2 complete days to mow and trim. I hope this is enough info to get some replies. Thanks everyone!
