I'm starting to get a little discouraged this season. I bid on a 4 acre Lawn maintencance job. Residential. A few trees in the the way, so it wasn't wide open field. I bid a $185 on it that includes mowing and trimming. After I submitted the bid I thought man I should of raised that a little. To my suprise I was to high. It seems I've been getting outbid alot at the beginning not just for lawns either. It seems everybody in my area are price shopping real hard this year.
