$250 to $300 to me.


Recently I got $100 for an average corner lot that was over grown but real thin.
I mulched the whole thing, took two guys 40 mins.
Local customer.

BINGO!! I have nearly NO P&P work and this is one of the reasons i have cut most companies loose. This particular company i have been trying to give the boot for almost a year but they keep sending a job here and there and MOST of these jobs pay good..............

FWIW my handy "Corelogic Grass Cut Guide" allows the following for 17,000 square feet:

42"-47" $225 net
48"-54" $250 net

Although I wouldn't hesitate to bid it at $350.

They pull that crap all the time with. I tell them my bid stands! Some do get reassigned ,some get approved at my price.

I tell siblings when HUD starts buying my equipment and maintaining it ,they then can tell what I can bid!:D

I sure do not allow them to cut my lawn bid. I do all the work on my equipment and know how hard it is on it too accept low ball prices. I have had a few I have had to go and clean up after there CHEAP vendor couldn`t complete it. (happen about a month ago) Craftmen 42" riding mower trying to cut 36" tall grass (thick) got to love the FNG`s. only a bushhog or commer. mower is going to cut that.

I`m sure some you all have seen this too!

Stay informed of what the city charges in your area when they have to send a crew out to do a knock down of a yard. In our areas, it is usually $250 minimum and that is just a kid running a tractor over the yard and give it a pasture cut. If your prices are at least in line with the city you can give them the option of paying for quality professional work with you or letting the city cite and lien the property for crap work.

That is why I live in the sticks, but sometimes you have some leverage when the city is ready to cut it for them if you don't.

Depending on how good the tape measure pics looked, I would bid it at about $320... BUT their counter offer, aka "amount approved per HUD Guidelines" would be somewhere around $200
