Is there a certain "standard" for bidding a contract? I know it probably depends on what area of the country you're in, so this may be for my East Texas com padres. A certain rate per acre? Length of time to complete the job? Difficulty completing the job? Obstacles? Haul away clippings or not? (would need a bagger) Per hour? Week? Month? I'm just staring out and could use all the help I can get. Looking at Exmark mower, Shindiawa trimmers, blowers, edgers, and hedge trimmers. Chain saw and pruner/pole saw be a good investment right now?
