    I am not looking for any-ones prices or what they would charge and I know that it depends on obstacles and all that stuff. What I need is a little help with time. I am very solid on my times with smaller jobs but I guess I need a little reassurance with this bigger estimate. What I am looking at is approx 49000 sq-ft of sod divided into 23 small lawns around buildings with sidewalks on most sides and a few trees to go around, the lawns are between 850'-6000'. This is mowing and edging with a 2 man crew. I am mowing with a 42" walker, How long do you think this would take to mow, I have an idea what I think but I would like a few opinion's.

    The second part is approx 25000 Sq-ft of shrub beds to keep up. How long do you think for that.

    How many man hours for each part.
