Need help with sample Commercial bid

Can someone help me with this? I am putting together a bid package for a government job and I need a professional looking bid. I have purchased 2 different "lawn care" packages that include sample bids ect. These look like my 12 year old wrote them. Stay away from "summer101" that one is the worst. In all the years I have been doing this work I have used a standard bid form. I just feel that this job is worth a bit more. I really want to make an impression and can use any help I can get with samples. Thanks in advance.

I don't think the standard looking form is as important as the content. I start with a letter stating appreciation along with a list of what the bid packet will contain ex: work specs. cost sheet, proof of insurance, a brochure. The work specs should be detailed as to how the job is performed, ex:
Mowing
7-10 days
pickup trash and limbs
remove clippings if necessary
trim
edge
blow
