Well after years of small stuff, Im looking at moving to larger contract jobs, but am having trouble getting anything close to accurate pricing/time/cost guides (no I haven't spent big money on landscape maintenance software as yet - need my first contract first). Any Help is appreciated - Essentially heres the type of isses Im trying to price out Regular Mowing 375 Acres - 41 times per year (30 growing season, 11 off season) Lawn edging 159,000 linear feet - 41 times per year Fertilize - 375 acres - 2 times per year Semi-improved grounds mowing - 549 acres -25 times per year semi-improved area edging - 300,000 linear feet - 11 times per year emergency job orders - 300 labor hours - 4 times a year Thats just part of it, pest control and specialty stuff (mangrove tree trimming) have to have licensed pros for that so getting estimates from them. Im guessing right now $55 per man hour, and for mowing 45 min per acre and 1/2 foot per second for edging (1800 feet per hour). Other things Im not so sure of is how long per bush from shrub trimming and tree pruning (about 2,000 trees and shrubs - once a year average) Am I in the ball park as I will have health care and 401k costs (taxes etc) to build in for the employees also. Thanks!
