    Went today to measure some parks. The first one was 690,480 sq ft the second was 423,950 sq ft. Is this possible to quote by sq feet or would it be
    better to just guess on how many hours it will take and just do a flat hour rate. My problem is the quote comes out to be outragious and I know what the quote was last year and that why they got bad service. I think who ever did it last year found out that it was bigger then they thought. I made sure I measured everything. It seems when I measure small properties the sq ft comes out, but when I get to big ones the sq ft formula does not work, and I am better off to go to a hour rate. Any help.
