thats what insurance is for. not a very busy center, most of the grass is away from the shops. the property manager knows they over paid and the landscapers did not do sh!t

Just my 2cent if they paid the other company 38 and they didn't do a good job,your price should stay the same but do a dam good job.

I wouldn't take a big cut like that,remember you out too make money.

Mowing will be 4-5 hours, trim/blow 1 hour(2 people working). i was thinking about $30,000, march-october. that includes fert, bushes, mowing. i know you do not know how big it is, but just by my time estimates, low or high $. i believe they spent 38,000 last year.
You came up with $60 an hour just from experence doing bushes, you should concider your self a lucky man doing work for people then telling them the price afterwards.

thats what happens when you got good customers and have been dealing with them for many years. if you come off as trustworthy ans honest then your customers will like you. if your a scumbag and do not do good work then you do not get that kind of treatment.
