    Right now all my jobs are lawn maintance. Mow, edge, weedeat, weed kill and blowing surfaces. I have been asked to bid on a neighborhood entrance maintance. Along with the lawn they want me to include rotation of annuals, streading pine straw, trimming hedges, ect. Any suggetsions on how to price these services? I was thinking I need to change out the annuals and freshen pine straw twice a year. Any suggestions. I will be doing all the work. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Measure for needles--- how many bales times your rate per bale times two--
    Add
    Cost of plants with mark up and time to change out times your rate times two.
    Add
    Hours to trim shrubs times your hourly rate times how many times per year
    Add
    Mowing fee
    Total
    divide by 12 for price per month
