    Here's how the game is played. You look at the screen shot and the maintenance listed below and come up with a bid. Now I trust that you won't look below at other bids to ruin the game.

    Okay Here it goes....

    This will be bid a monthly price. This maintenance requires:
    Mowing/trimming once a week
    Mulch maintenance
    Shrub/small tree trimming
    Spring and Fall clean up

    Now, this is for fun and answers are only ballpark guesstimations so a 100 nit picky questions to this will ruin the game. If you want to ask a ton of questions PM and ask me to change it. If you want to complain about this game and what's wrong with it then go have no fun on some other thread.

    i'm going to go out on a limb based on the small picture and not seeing any detail that this job should bring at least 7400 dollars a month in maintenance alone...

    i didn't figure out cleanup because i can't tell what the property really looks like... i figured roughly 13-15 acres....

    i wish i could see a better pic but what the heck.... i'll bite

    Would like to chime in but can't tell the area to be mowed. Can you outline it for us? And also how often are the other services to be performed?

    Right about 100,000 a year, make that $8,250.00 a month, also I need payment upfront and I reserve the right to discontinue services anytime.
