    pretty good size shopping center. stop and shop, with about 15 other stores, my partner owns one of the stores in the center. his yearly bill states that the center paid $45,000 for landscaping. cant tell you how much grass there is, a good amount though. not too many bushes to cut, alot of islands (mulch and whatever). not going to be a winter job, just march -october. what would you bid for this.

    this company also owns another center they would want us to do, around same size. i would just double the bid.

    iy would be a one day thing for each center. probably 3 hours of cutting then 1-2 hours of edging and blowing. what else do you need. planting would be extra.

    its only me and my friend, we make all the profits. it would be about 350-400 a week for just cuts.

    Second that. You better do alot of measuring before you return with something or you'll be shooting yourself in the foot.
