Park 1- twelve acres of mostly wide open mowing, soccer fields and a couple of pavillions My bid $380 Park 2 - Four acres three baseball diamonds no outfield fences Bid $165 Park 3- 1/2 acre playground park. woodchip playlot minimal trimming Bid $40 park 4- 1.6 acre retention pond sidewalls only not really a park just vacant ground but sloped rather steep Bid $80 Park 5- 1.5 acre playground park very flat bid $70 Total bid was $700 per cut.total of 19.5 acres. being very close to home I would like to have it. I have concentrated in the past on almost strictly residental mowing and it has served me well in the past, however due to the so called economy jobs have been increasingly difficult to come by. Three years ago in the spring I prayed that the phone would stop ringing the work was so overwhelming. Last year I prayed the the phone would just ring. Lets hope this cycle breaks soon and we can go back to the old days and rake the cash like oak leaves in the fall.
