I have a bid here for 5.6 acres housing developmen., It is broken up in to 4 larger areas, two around entrace ponds, two in the back and then smaller areas between town houses and along the perimeter of the the development. They want trimming and lose garabage pickup also. They also have mulching job and the trimming of hedgerow along the road. I am about to bid $600.00 per cut, once per week. That is $75.00 per hour if it takes me 8 hours. I will also include mulching for the reciept cost of the mulch and trimming of the hedgerow free of labor if I get the bid. If they pay for one half of a 28 week period up front, I will throw in a free mowing. What do you think? This is my first large bid, so I am rather green. Thank you.
