I need some help with a bid for a large property bid. Total area 4.7 acres 20k around house turf thin with lots of Oak trees. 3 acres open old pasture land. The balance of the area is the entry with driveway in the middle and several trees. He wants the 20k fertilized/weed control and seeded in the fall. Mowing will be done weekly. Leaf removal with dumping on site. He also wants year round service. No snow removal, but anything tree limbs that come down etc, is to be taken care of. My thoughts mowing 25 cuts @ $200 = $5,000 Seed 20k @ $1,200 Fert/weed control per application $80.00 @ 4 times $320.00 Leaf removal @1##%!! property surrounding with Oak trees - don't know how to bid. About 38k will need leaf removal. Leaf removal three times at 10 man hours? 10 x $40 = $400 @ three times. Total $1,200 Off season visits twice per month Dec-Mar. $75 assuming I will not find major storm damage etc. Total 6 visits $450. Total $8,170 12 months at $680 per month. The owner will be out of state for work-Three years total. I may be able to store a mower on site in steel building. Please give me your thoughts. This could be a great deal for me, but if I am off in my bid I will hurt myself.
