    What kind of bid? Maintenance or a clean-up job or an installation job? Commercial or residential?

    Well, it's been 5 years or so since I have bid on commercial work. And these are fairly simple proposal letters. Probably not as detailed as you'd get from lawncaresuccess.com. But if you're just looking for some simple (and free) forms to get you started, you are welcome to use the following files I am attaching. Feel free to use or alter them as you wish.
