    I'm asking what bidding methods people use that work for them not prices unless you want to share but what method do you use and is it accurate for the price you want.
    Example of methods i've used: walk around all the property to be trimmed and multiply that by 4 that gives me a pretty accurate per min or hour time line. now i'm trying the findlotsize.com for figuring square footage and comparing it to other yards I have but im finding big differences in time and money there.
    What do you do?

    i eye ball everything.

    no measuring of any kind. unless your talking edging. then i use a wheel.

    otherwise i just look at it and know.
