    I've been cutting a 25 unit subdivision for the realtor this summer and the other day a lady approached me and said that they would be establishing a Home Owner Association and would I prepare an estimate.

    Well I sent her a letter stating that I would be glad to prepare an estimate after they established the association where we could as a group define the common areas and I could explain what it would take to maintain the property.

    I am thinking that I will approach this with a simple cut and trim to include the fall and spring cleanups as the annual contract and add things like the mulch and entrance landscaping, snow removal, Etc... as add ons.

    Any comments? Thanks. Chris..
