I have been mowing a lot of residential properties by estimating the hours involved, and am satisfied with my bidding so far. I want to bid on a commercial property that has several thousand square feet of grass. (An old Walmart Property with a large island in the center and large strips along each side). I have a measuring wheel, but don't know what the standard rate is for square footage on commercial properties. Fertilizer applications may follow, which is another reason for the square footage bid. Could some of you smart people give me an idea. I'm not trying to be a lowballer on this project, but this will be my second commercial bid, and the other one was small and I made my bid by what I figured would be a good hourly rate. Help!!
