Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Have you measured out how many sq ft the lawn is?

What about how many linear feet of trimming you have to do?

How did you come up with 2 hours per man?

Would you have any bid suggestions from looking at the property on the map?

I looked at as much as I could.... not much as it only gives curbside view. I can't determine how deep the property is.... If his calculations are right for 2hrs and 100 takes care of his O.H.&P then I say go for it.

I think we need a little more info. What exactly has to be cut (front, sides, athletic field) and what is the square footage. There are alot of trees by the road that will have to be cut around and possibly trimmed. Do you have to edge. There is easily a 1/4 mile of edging by the looks of it not to mention all that trimming.
