If you don't win this bid, ask to see the winning bid. Unless this job has many small areas not accesible by large mowers,you will be shocked. Again, I don't know anyone in this area who mows that many times. You don't have to trust me, ask some other area contractors. 27-30 is the norm. That would be 9 months or a little more of mowing every week. It doesn't happen around here, unless the spec sheet calls for it and I have never seen that. I find it much easier to get higher prices per square foot like the ones you posted on jobs of about 5 acres and under.
