New Business: Help to Bid on an Account

Hey guys,

I am 19 years old and am going to college for horticulture and turf management. This summer I will be running my own turf maintenance company at home in Northern Maine, and I have one account that I am bidding on that requires the following services:

Mowing
Spring and Fall Clean-up
Prep and Seeding of Plow Damage
Weed Control to Turf and Island Areas (1 app.)
Fertilizer to turf areas (1 app.)
Lime to turf areas (1 app.)
Pruning of shrubs

The property has 14,791 sq. ft. of lawn area, and while I didn't measure the beds, my guess would be about 3,000 sq. ft.

I am having trouble coming up with some numbers and what products to use, so just a few questions for you guys if you could help me out:

1. What would be a good weed control product to use for the turf/island areas? Cost? What should I charge for this sort of service? By the time I have to provide this service, I will have my Master Applicator's License, so no worries there.

2. Same question as above for the fertilizer? Cost? What should I charge?

3. What is a good way to estimate seasonal clean-ups/reparing plow damage?

Any input would be appreciated! Thanks!
