I usually don't ask bid questions but, here it goes. I have been asked to bid a couple properties that are larger than I normally do. I work alone most of the time. I am using a 48" 23hp Hustler super walkbehind with a bullrider sulky and a large accelerator bagger (if needed). I usually trim and edge everything each visit with a trimmer that has an "edgit" on it. then I mow, bagging only if the growth is so much that the clippings don't disperse well. I run double blades on the mower. then I blow off the walks with a hand held blower. The first one is a town house/condo type. I think its four units. All one building. Just over 35000 sqft of turf on a almost 50000 sq ft corner lot. 2600 linear ft of sidewalk and drive edge. Mostly open areas but there is a drive around the back and out the other side. I'm not asking for a price specifically because I know that can vary from area to area, but how much time on average would you figure for this property? They are also asking for a fertilizer bid because they want one company to do both. I figure about 2 to 2.5 hours for mowing @$40 per manhour (that's high per manhour here so don't tell me how you get $60!) = $80-$100 per cut About $170 per application for a 5 step fert program with weed control. What do you think of the mowing times I am figuring?
