Most of you guys probably are saying 'who cares.' Still, for a small solo like me, I care Managed to get my hometown dental clinic on board for seasonal mowing and apps today. Highly visible, nicer lawn upon coming into town. I wanted it bad. I called to follow up. Office mgr said one guy's prices were lower. Thats good I am thinking, I don't want to be the lowball. 3/4 acre give or take of grass, average trimming, not too much weed pressure as the previous LCO did an ok job (but the guy was not local, thus the reason they were shopping). I bid $165/app last fall. Upon thinking now, was probably a little high. Office mgr. says low bid came in at $120. Jeez louise! I asked how many sq ft this guy came up with, mgr said did not list (thus probably did not measure either). I offered to split at $140/app and it was accepted. I figure I should have been $150 or so originally. Mowing went for $55/cut. I wanted $60-$65. I took a little hit on that, but can still make money solo. I wont even tell you what the other guy bid.
