    need help bidding on a commercial account. (this is my first).
    area to be cut is 209,154 s.f. with about 65 young trees spread throughout. 2 parts of the area are large water drain areas with slight hills the front of the property has a decent hill to it.
    the property manager says they usually have students cut it.

    the parking lot has about 200parking spaces that need to be repainted.

    I tell ya It's weird................I look at many different threads about your pricing in the states and your pricing is about the same as ours in Australia.
    Just a little strange I think with the diff in our dollar value.

    How much is a pack of chewing gum for instance, in the states??

    Flatlander: I would be just about right on with dvm on this one 225- 245.
    Is that the whole account in your pics?..............Is there turf around the back?
