    Bid this;

    One account = 15 units or houses with 1,000sf each, all of them fenced in = 15,000sf, plus 5,000sf of common aria with a totle of 20,000sf all together.
    1 hour to trim, 1 hour 45 min to mow, and 15 min to blow off, all done with a 21'' toro
    One man, thats what it takes.

    It's hard to estimate your costs, but going by what you had indicated, I would say right around $250 per cut

    Figuring on about 4 hours round trip, loading and unloading, driving etc. and using my base figure of $60 per hour.

    Sounds like a pretty good deal, with everything grouped together. You may want to go a bit lower depending on the ease of the work, but without seeing it, I'd have to put my bid as this.

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah, but that's $60/hour with a PUSH mower. Good luck.
