    What are you going to do, do you have to cut the grass, prune the shrubs, blow the concrete? What about mulch, pinestraw etc..? How often are you going to go out there? Do you want a montly price, yearly, one time thing?

    How is the terrain, distance between the objects, cars/people that you have to avoid? A lot of details needed.

    Not enough information...

    how many visits? What are your total expenses per visit? Conflicting data. 4 1/2 hours...3 people every week? What materials are needed each weeK?

    48 visits, labor and equipment expense $34.50 per hour. I assume it will take 4.5 Hours. My total cost would be $155.25.
    I am assuming I can charge $525.00 per visit maint. and $225.00 per month for shrub trim.

    GCS, If your cost are 34.50 per man times 3 men= 103.50 per hr.
    times 4.5 hrs. 465.00 a week? Not much of a hospital? Something dosent seem to add up.
