I have been providing maintenance for a while but had a customer ask about a renovation. I worked up a bid and based on what I have read on this forum I am way too high. I don't have a quote but I read in a thread of someone charging $10 per 1000 to renovate. That's what my costs are 14k = $140 seed $100 fert $25 gas, not to mention wear and tear, replacement costs, etc. $15 profit $0 I was going to bid $360. This would have included going over the yard with the verticutter, go over with Walker to vacuum debris, aerate (some clay is soil), seed, and fertilize. So... am I missing something? I am new to this but want to make sure I do a great job for the guy. Do you guys have a set fee per 1000?
