Not sure on the square footage of all of them. The biggest one I got is 15 acres but when we measured what had to be mowed it was more like 6 acres. I had the square footage just dont remember it right of hand. All I measured what had to be trimmed blown an edged. Then I figured a rough estimate on hrs to get my bid. I think I got it now. I was thinking to hard on something that was very simple.
I used your estimating software to get my totals. I like it alot an its almost exactly what I figure with out it but your way is much faster. Thanks everyone.

This brings up a very important point. The vast majority of new businesses end up failing with the biggest reason being the inability to make a profit.

There are many members that join on here who we won't hear from again after a certain point because they underbid their work.

As a reader, please think about this when you are out there bidding. If you aren't making a profit, reconsider your bid price.
