    i have a difficult job i have been doing for 5 years. it is 190,000 ft sq of turf. it is almost all a 40%grade that is about 1500 ft long. there is about 200 trees on berms in a row with the hill. 1.5 miles of trimming approx.( this includes approx 3/4 mile of edging ) it is irrigated and all.

    just wondering the range of prices for this type of job. it is weekly finish mowing. and on another note, what crew size would yo send and what mowers would you incorporate to use?

    thanks, the grassman

    ah come on, somebody take a stab at it, tons of guys give you way less info and you guys price it out. i just want to know what you think, and after a few posts i will tell you what we get. and what we use to cut it. i may even get some dormant pics this weekend to show you.

    ok, i will get some pics, i thought i had enough info posted to at least get some ranges you all might charge. we are doing it for way less than 760. maybe it sounds worse than it looks, know what i mean. will get pics in the morning for this, but the grass wont be green.

    I would say around 500 would be a reasonable price to charge. I would run a three man crew on it. (9 hours total labor time /w travel??) How many labor hours do you all average on site for this job? What has your current crew size for this job been?

    Thanks. Have a good one.
