    That place obviously get's premium care.

    You need to be able to fertilize and provide weed control.

    Also use high quality equipment.

    Lot's of time is spent just keeping those shrubs in line.

    Look at the edge around the beds, it's perfect.....

    They are willing to pay for seasonal color, that's a great sign.

    I'd start by figuring your cost's to maintain the grounds. Square foot of turf. Area of beds to mulch. How many plants to trim. How many plants for seasonal color. How much fert. How much squirt. Leaf clean up.

    That's a high dollar contract, I'd love to get that.

    More pics please!

    Those small shrubs look as if they are done often with a small electric shrub trimmer - one handed type. That's the only way to get that perfect and clean. High maintenence all the way down the line. Nothing wrong with that.
