I'm not a "newbie", have been at it long enough where I can usually eyeball a job and give customer a quote from walking & looking over area to bid. But, today i received a call to bid a job for a ladies elderly grandmother and this one is difficult to gage & would like some input from everyone. Originally call was to bid : weekly mowing/trimming, when I arrived at property was caught off guard.... large lot approx 2/3- 1 acre with probably 40-50 mature trees to trim around, long drive, a couple of mulch beds, a lot of things to trim around besides the trees. A ton of branches down from the fall/winter, some will need chain saw to haul off. I'm thinking: We will do Clean-up for Approx $250-$300. Maintain yard $80 per visit?
