I would never even consider an account that size unless you have the current labor without hiring in an entire crew for a property that size. It's inevitable that at some point you will get outbid by another company. Especially if they want year to year contracts. Again I don't know your situation but losing an account that size and trying to fill that void of loss of income would sink alot of small to medium lawn care companies. For me the investment in equipmentand labor wouldn't be worth it in this business with no real guarantee on return with a year to year contract.
Partner in the lawn maintenance side owns a temp service. Labor is not a huge issue.

Another input. Currently on the largest property were at 1.244 man hours per acre. This is a waste management property with some lagoon mowing.

This sounds like a fun job. Pictures of said areas would be great to be of more help with a price.

Is the 700 acres mowed once a month or is the limb pick up and that stuff once a month?
700 once a month.

Mowing 28 times. That's about 2 mows short of weekly for the season.

I forgot to mention specs say it's mulching or bagging only.
