    okay. i know it's been asked before, but looking for bidding advice. i have potential commercial job. maybe 3 acres of mowing. lot of trimming and edging. 2000 ft of trimming and at least 4000 ft (.8 miles on odometer) of edging. and dont forget the blowing it all off. thinking job is $250-350 price range per cut. no mulching the staff takes care of that. am i in the ballpark or am i over pricing?? ok price for southeast north carolina?????
    not trying to make a killing just extra for the family.

    $250- $ 350 is a very wide range. How long do you think it will take. Know your cost per hour to run your business,add your profit.

    just think how much you want to make and how much it takes off the life of your equipment and BAM your price
