    Do you guys bid your lawn edging buy the foot if so whats the going price? Also do you bid your mowing by the square foot?

    try calculating mowing using these figures:

    - use 44,000 as an acre
    - multiply your square footage by your pricing structutre
    ie. 3.50/m sf
    - multiply this number by a degree of difficulty
    from 1.5(easy) to 3(difficult)

    Good Luck!!

    try calculating edging using these figures:

    gas or stick edgers
    - multiply (x) 50 cents per 100 linear feet(lf)

    line trimmers (turf-curb areas etc.)
    - multiply (x) 75 cents per 100-l.f.

    line trimmers (along chain link fencing)
    - multiply (x) $1 per 100-l.f.)

    Good Luck!!
