Default Simple estimating

I have the opportunity to bid on a 278,784 square ft. soccer feild complex but I'm not sure on how to go about it. The whole thing is wide open with only four goals to move & a split rail fence around the whole thing. It is a complete square, 528 ft. on all sides. I really want to get this thing, it could really give me the boost I need to jump start my two year old lawn biz. Any help!

I really dont want to do the math, how many acres?

You'll need to factor in round up for the fence line every month, but that will cut way down on your line trimming. Out side of that it's just time. How long do you think this will take?

It comes out to be about 6.5 acres. As for how long I think it will take? I'm not sure how to figure it. I have a 36 in. deere & I know that is to small for this gig but I am able to purchase one more mower & put someone on it.
