Last year, a HOA asked me to bid on mowing the grass (weeds) in front of their neighborhood. The city had been doing it for them and it was getting rather expensive. I had previously sent out flyers to the neighborhood and someone decided to give me a call. Well, to be short, I don't do commercial mowings. I don't even do residential over 16,000 square feet (usually) but, for some reason, I gave them a bid of $90. It's a little over an acre. They did some clean up work and so they requested a new quote because now the lot was a little larger. They also told me that there was another company that was bidding. They wondered if I would like to adjust my price. I told them that I would. I increased it to $100 per mow. Then, they accepted my bid. They told me that they wanted it mowed every other week. I told them that my price was for weekly service and that the new price would be $125. They had no problem with that. I mowed the lawn for the first time on Friday. It took 25 minutes.
