Seeking advice for bidding on a Strata in Pitt Meadows

I am a new one-man lawn and garden maintenance outfit in Pitt Meadows. I have experience working for others providing ultra-premium service in the industry, but not much bidding experience (particularly for strata).

I have recently been asked to do a bid for a 25-unit strata in which a member of my church owns a unit. The current groundskeeper is an elderly owner and wants to retire from the position. He estimates that he puts in about 8 manhours avg/per week on keeping the common areas mowed,16 beds (3'x5') weeded and cedar hedges (30@8ft, 90@4-5ft) and approx 20 rhodo/azaleas pruned twice per year.

My question is: What is the typical hourly rate companies bill to stratas in this area? Would $1100/m over 12 month period put me out of the race? I would include all gardening materials (mulch, seed, turf, herbicides, etc) as part of the quote.

Please advise... Dr. New Earth, you are from the area, do you have an opinion?
