    I am gonna bid on this small resturant, the bid is $400 every month for 12 months and it includes grass cutting from april to nov. and also includes snowplowing in the winter months, is that sound like a good bid?

    depends on what your doing for $400 a month. You say grass cutting and snow plowing but what about shrub trimming, spraying, fertilizing, and so on. We don't get much snow around here but where your at thats another story. We may get 10" of snow a year if that but PA averages several feet a year at different times throughout winter. Around here clearing the lot of a business after 4-5" inches of snow is around $200 + a pop.

    Make sure you have a cancellation clause in case they cancel early. That's why I don't do yearly contracts, only seasonal. Winter & Green Seasons.
