    I'd do that job for $435. But tough to say without seeing it. Especially on the cleanup part.

    Jason, Don't forget there is weekly mowing involved. Is the $435 for the cleanup and edging only or would you include the aeration and the entire seasons mowing in the $435. There is allot of leaf debris.

    Hey, everyone, I am not asking you how to bid this. I know how, and already have bidded it and lost it. I gave everyone the stats to see how you would price it. I am not a lowballer and probally loosing to the lowballers or just cheap customers. I am sure seeing my share. Please work it, I know itis a busy time of the year. Thanks, Dan
