Back yard is tri-leveled which will mean that the mower will have to be picked up and placed on the elavated area to be mowed. the turf will also be at 3" per the request of client. What would be your bid to mow and blow?

    2 hours of edging, 2 1/2 hours of mowing trimmed 3 hedges. By the time I was through, it was about 110 degrees (Noon). It was getting hot. Not to complain, Do you think $200 a month is worth it? :dizzy:

    Where are you in AZ? Sounds like an old scottsdale or fountain hills yard.

    To me, only if you had to do it once a month. Once a week, no way. Do you think busting your butt in the heat for 4 1/2+ hours for fifty bucks is worth it? If you do, have fun. If not, walk away.

    Why does it take you 2 1/2 hours to mow a 10k lawn? That should take a half hour or 45 minutes at the most. There must be a landscape issue or difficult entry.
