    Same here, $7500/year for the next three years on 30 acres (not open field mowing) 15 bids. The guy said the last company had 3 mowers and two whips for a whole day and they skipped it 6 or 7 times last year because it was two wet. I wonder why that happened! Will these people in charge start looking into the companies more instead of going for lowest bid and complaining about the quality? We're already at the bottom dollar on prices I'm going to start charging to just kill off all of the grass and then they don't have to cut it anymore.
