I've been in the landscape/maintenance field for 3 yrs now since I graduated college. I have had a few large commercial accounts come and go over these 3 years. Does anybody have a standard that they use for cutting grass do you bid it by the square foot (if so how much) or do you just guestimate how long it will take based on past experience. The reason I'm asking is I know I have been low balled before but this year I can't seem to get any of the accounts I've been bidding. I am probably high on pruning and pinestrawing. Also do you guys just include pruning or do you charge extra. By including I mean do you bill for cutting year round and stop when the growing season ends and then just let that extra money include your pruning. Thanks for any help.
