i have been reading this post, and thought i might add a complex also to get advise. I have never put in a bid for a big place like this. I was going to see how to price it, not sure on the acres. I know they want mowing, edging, weedeating, and blowing the parking lot. I have a exmark 60' triton and a 42' walker with a bagger, and weedeater, edger, and blower. Any advise that is helpful. Any Questions i will try to answer them the best i can, i just know its up for bid

What would u think it would be with 2 people and proably 2 mowers going at the same time just by looking at it

Hi landonkade,

I asked Keith to jump in here and offer you some suggestions. Or maybe Troy has some thoughts too?

ok, looking forward to see what they have to say, the botton portion of the map is no included, just a little in the back of the apartments is where it ends

Hi pnplawn,

Any advice as to how you break down such a large area to create your bid? What are the steps you take to come to a final $ amount to service the property?

I based that price on each unit. There is 98 units located there. I charged 7.65 per unit per cut. Takes about 10 minutes each unit to cut. Then you x that by 98 and you get 749.70 per week. Then I times that by 4 you get 2998.80 I rounded it to 3000.00 per month.

can u give me a round about figure for the apartments of mine above. Like total charge for the weeks cutting and a bi-weekly cutting price with edging, weedeating, and blowing. There is a little back yard on the very bottom part where u see a field

or anyone any suggestions

PNP - You're awesome. That's great the way you break down the larger job into managable units and then multiply upward to get your final price.
