    and your profile states you have been in business for 14 years, i think you confused that with your age.

    very hard to say with no info or pics but if you dont think you can do it and make money dont sign the contract and just say your to busy in order to keep your professional image. i have done it a few times myself.

    re read your initial post and ask yourself if you think that gives ANY information?

    I can say that we bid on some city parks this year ranging from 7 acres to 27 acres they went as low as 14.25 per acre. We were the next lowest bidder at double the price. We told the winning bidder that he could have bid a lot higher and still won the bid. We told him that to give him something to think about over the next 3 years. If he is still in business.

    For standard commercial it shouldn't be that low but bidding on city work well, we chalked it up as time wasted.
