    that do you think i should charge to mow this property? mostly open in the back of the long section. it jets in and out a little next to the homes.

    there are 15 units in total. i'm bidding on "mow and blow" only.

    If all 15 are average sized lawns, I would bid 400-450.

    can't you see by the picture that they are not 15 individual lawns?

    Why don't you do your research and bid your jobs according to your cost and how much profit you want to make. Your response to the other poster, "Can't you see that they are not average size lawns." Actually without going to the property and seeing all of the variables, NO we can not tell what kind of yards they are. With over 1200 post, it looks like you would know how to bid a property.

    bigger jobs are harder to judge time. just looking for second opinions i guess.

    i don't get very many oppertunities to bid town homes. being part time, most of them are too big for me to handle.

    Why dont you just measure each property out and go from there how you would normally price a house maybe giving a better price since you have no drive time?

    By looking at a satellite photo its a little hard to get a good estimate for how big they are...

    If I were you, I would do two things.
    1. Ask how long it took the previos LCO's to complete this property.
    2. Then, try to find out how much the LCO's before you were getting.

    Finding out either one, or both of those would help you to price that job.
