    How would you price out this job? Specs- 22ksqft thick lawn 470 ft of trimming -clippings need to be collected and dumped 20 to 30 feet on another side of a stone wall. I was given this job and now almost wish I hadn't taken it. more info 2 men with 52 hydro w/b 45 minutes of cutting ( 90 total) 5-10 trim- blow
    Thanks for any info

    45 min for 22k sq of cutting w/ 2 men? 90 TOTAL!?! One holding each handle of the w/b?

    Seriously though... if this isn't a joke, a 22k sq lawn usually takes 45 min for me alone... bagged. Add 20 min to trim (including edge)470ft of trimming is nothing... and you can dump the grass there!!! For free... Whats the problem?

    I get $75 for a high end 22k lawn bagged here... grass dumped in woods. Keep in mind, this is a super manicured, ultra-meticulous, walker-cut, edged-beds-every-week-lawn. If its an s-hole... it should be even faster, maybe $60. In my neck of the woods, $55 is a little on the cheap side... although you can dump there, so maybe not.

    i would bid 65 per cut and would not bag. mulch clippings is better for lawn. 70-75 to bag
