    I was asked to bid on a townhome neighborhood. It is like 6 blocks long with two streets branching off. it is absolutely HUGE! Do companies really pay tons of money to have these mowed?? because i am thinking it will literally be about $1500/week for me to mow this. it is pretty nice grass (for rental property) with huge back yards and sidewalks (lots of trimming). i will try and take some pics so you guys can help me bid this....hopefully i am not bitting off more than i can chew!
