Please help me bid this job. She just wants mowing, weed eating and blowing. Using a 42" ZTR

I absolutely have no idea where to begin. It included bothe homes in the pictures. Back to the barn, and all the way to the fence.

Thanks!

How many sq. ft. of lawn is this? How many linear feet will you have to line trim?

Personally I'd be in the $120 weekly or $160 biweekly range. It looks HUGE, but then again yards in my area are tiny.

Not sure of the sq footage, to be honest. I know its more than 1.5 acres, but it's easy to mow. Not a lot of trees or objects.

Linear foot shouldn't be much. She just wants it done around both houses. There is no grass around any of the trees to trim.

I know it would take longer with my 42", but I'd like to bid on the "job", not "per hr". She would be a contract customer, and I don't want to bid too high or too low.

Thanks for the range. I was guessing 140ish before I posted on this forum. So it's good to know I might not be off by that much.

They did say that they would like it done every 10 days.

I would be careful with the every ten days thing what a pain. 7 or 14 only, that way you know what day of the week it falls

$175 about every 10 days. Give or take a day or two.

I'd also suggest you measuring out the property, either pacing it or using a surveyor's wheel so you have an accurate measurement of how much you have to mow and trim. Then you will be able to use those measurements and prices later when you bid on other properties.

If you dont measure the property theres not much advice people can give you. Theres a reason why every trade measures.
