    I went to give an estimate on a trucking terminal. Here are the specifics:

    There is approximately 5 acres to be mowed.
    The ground is basically flat.
    There is one building that is 300' x 300' and another that is 400' x 400' for weedeating, along with about 6 trees.
    There is 3 very small islands on the property.
    There is approximately 800' of road frontage with a small ditch the whole way (over half can be done with the mower)
    The property has a ditch (400') running along the entrance that will need a weedeater.
    There is a bank (16' x 200') that cannot be cut with a mower.

    I was thinking about $500/cut if it is cut weekly and $600/2 weeks.

    Is this price too low?

    Thanks for the input
