    OK,

    I am bidding a project (my 3rd of the year) and I think I still need help. I had a post a week or so ago, and I got tore up for bidding $300/week, I ended up at $135 and I got the work.

    Anyway, I have a new deal now with about the same sq ftg (just over 33k). There is a heavy mulch line that borders the grass in a lot of areas, which I can see being a pain but what do I know. Avg amount of trees and a pretty easy mow overall. I am thinking $150-160/wk. (mow edge, Blow)

    I just bought my mower (44" toro WB), so I am thinking it could take me 3 hours to get out of dodge when I trim.

    Am I getting any better at this? Dosen't feel like it, but I am appreciating the opportunities!!!

    Thanks guys!

    B

    Yes, they do want me to wait untill the snow melts before I start working on it.

    i dont live in snow country but I am thinking you are going to have to wait for the snow to melt before knowing what you need to do for the spring cleanup.
