I am way out of my league on this one but I'll ask anyway? I was called by a municipality to bid on spraying (weed control)what totals to be 10 areas ranging from 8K to 650K sq ft of weed/grass mix adding to a total of 35 acres. The areas are boulevards, parks and ballparks. The brunt of it are 2 parks one is 465K sq ft and the 650K sq ft both relatively flat but in an urban setting. I have ideas of my own but have any of you bid on this type of work? Is it more profitable and safer to stay with the small residential apps or the municipal stuff. The current applicator is a lowballer and is equipped to do this work, however the city knows he does marginal work and would like to change if the numbers come up right. Would you bid on this and if so how? Would you bid on each of the 10 areas and present it or would you bid on the whole 35 acres? If you want to include numbers for your part of the country please do so. I am a very small co. (me) and even wonder if I could do this myself. I am licensed and state certified for spraying. I have used Millennium Ultra as well as Dissolve on my properties using an 8' boom sprayer. I can have access to a skid mount 200 gal sprayer if needed. One last question. What would be the minumum equipment that you would use? There isn't really a timeframe to be completed by but I know they would like to start the spraying about 2 weeks into September. Any insight from your experience would be appreciated.
