I made a similar post in the lawn mowing forum, but this post is strictly about landscape maintenance.

I have recently been asked to make a maintenance bid on a 500 unit apartment complex that is over 40 acres. It has dozens and dozens of small beds planted with yaupons, annuals, and azaleas. THey want pine straw replaced every 12 months.

They want weeding and trimming.

Do any of you have any guideline rates for this large of a job? How do I begin to calculate the labor? I have about 25 maintenance accounts that involve this type of work...but they pale in comparison to the large scale of this job.

Can you give me any rough figures? I'll try to post pictures later.
