    Ok heres the deal. I got invited to bid on a commercial property. I really don't want to eff this one up because it would be my biggest account. First off, I'm in southern new hampshire. There is about 100,000 sq ft. to mow. A lot of open areas from the specs i saw (stupid snow), and quite a bit of push mowing (25 12 x 6 ft islands).What should I charge for a mow? Is $500 a cut too much.($.005 per sq.)? I'm taking debris with me too. I was thinking goin a lil lower just so I can get a better chance of nailing the acount. One more question is there is 65 yards of mulch to be spread( Hemlock)? Ive never had to charge for 65 yards spread.Is $3900 too much? Any ideas as to what I should charge? All responses will be greatly appreciated, thanx in advance.
