I got a call last night to give a bid to a homwowners association to cut pulic areas in the neighborhood. The total square footage was 330.000 sq. feet. Flat, with one sidewalk and a playground to trim around. A few small trees. I figured up it was approximately 7.5 acres. I gave him the price of 340.00 per cut. The guy was a littled shocked at the price. He wanted to know if that was per cut. I told him yes. He is a very nice guy so we got talking. He ended up telling me that the company currently doing the cutting was doing it for 65.00 dollars. He was looking for someone else because the homeowners assoc. thought they were cutting it when it didn't need cutting. I could hardly believe this. I questioned him and we went to the see the president of the association. She came to the door and she confirmed that the current company was doing it for 65.00 dollars. This is the sh!! that kills the rest of us. There are 3-4 mexicans (nothing against this group) that is cutting it. They have nice equipment. I have seen them before while I was cutting a lawn I have in the neighborhood. $65.00 for 7.5 acres!!!!!! This is assenine!!!!!!!!!!!!
