  • Nursing Home Bid

    Here is another property I am bidding on. It takes 2.5 hrs to complete. The red shaded area is to be cut every week while the green shaded area is to be cut every 2-3 weeks. The 2-3 week mowing is billed separately which I am thinking $60 to cut and trim.

    The courtyards inside the building are to be done with a weedeater and will take about 10 mins each.

      I need to get $60 per hour. The $60 i mentioned in the orginial post was only for the area shaded in green that is cut every 2-3 weeks.

        Sorry but witch is it every 2 weeks or 3. Grass can grow a lot in a week and takes more time to cut. I would give them 3 prices weekly,2 weeks, or every 3 weeks. LIKE $60 $75 $85

          Ok that makes sense for that part. What do you think for the weekly area?

            Also Clay, do you have any idea what the dimensions are of these different property areas so readers can compare them with jobs they currently are working on to help you better?

              The main portion of the property, red, is about .65 acres including all areas.

              The every 2-3 week cutting, green, is about .85 acres.

                  Clay,

                  I know you mentioned that the total area would take you 2.5 hours to mow and trim but how long will the red area vs the green area take? Knowing this can help break down the bid. Also, is this a bid for a certain specific season or do they just want a per month price?

                    The red area will take about an hour and half longer simply because the green is just straight forward mowing and is not ask much trimming.

                      Ok so that would mean:

                      Red area total time = ?
                      Green area total time = ?

                        Red- 2.5 hrs.
                        Green- 1 hr.

                          Red area $60 x 2.5hr = $150 per cut
                          Green area $60 x 1hr = $60 per cut

                          How does this sound?
