Little Blue Lawn Care is on a distinguished road
Default Need some advice

Hi guys,

I got a call today to do a bid on 3 duplexes, mowing/trimming, and an area along the back of the duplexes that is about 220ft long and 60ft wide.

The 220x60 area has not been mowed or anything for probably 2 months, grass and weeds approximately 2-3ft tall and the owner needs it cleaned up.

Now, I can bid the duplexes ok. I have no idea how to figure what to charge for the clean up of this large area.

I only have 2 21" mowers, trimmer. I'm a one man operation, so I'm not sure if this is something I should even take on.

Any thoughts or advice much appreciated

Hi!

Let's break this down so others reading it can compare your view with theirs and offer their opinion.

I got a call today to do a bid on

3 duplexes, mowing/trimming per duplex:
How long would this take for each to Mow? =
Hourly charge to mow? = $

How long would this take for each to Trim? =
Hourly charge to Trim? = $

The 220x60 area has not been mowed or anything for probably 2 months, grass and weeds approximately 2-3ft tall and the owner needs it cleaned up.

How long (approx) would this take to Mow? =
