Default cemetery bid

Well I have mowed little league fields before and they usually took about 40 minutes give or take. Theres 5 fields here plus a soccer field. The nice part about the fields is they are brand new and have a lime border on both sides of the fence in 6 inches, so that should greatly reduce trimming time. I am headin towards 250.00 per trip for all the fields, still working on the cemetery bid, lol

And you are saying it will take you 40 minutes to mow each of them x 5 fields = about 3 and 1/2 hours.

You are looking at $250 per visit ?

So would that be $250 / 3.5hrs = around $71 per hour? Or am I missing something else?

Default cemetery and ball fields

Hey sorry bout the delayed response, been pretty busy. I guess I forgot to mention that there are about 4 acres surrounding the ball fields thats added into that. I'm figuring 3.5 hours for the fields and 2.25 for the area around the outside of the fields, around 43 bucks an hour.

Ok that fills in the blanks for me.

Do you have an overhead image of the property? I'd love to see it.

Keep us posted on how the bid goes!
