    I put this thread up in the landscaping forum but wasn't getting any input so I thought I would put it over here.

    I already put the bid in on it but I wanted to see what other people would say.

    OK here goes.

    36823 square feet of beds 50% plants
    75 different beds in total
    2" of mulch spread
    Plenty of room to dump on site

    5200 feet of light bed edging (just pulling the old mulch back a few inches from the curb)

    5200 feet of trimming
    57 trees to trim around (1.5 miles in total walking when trimming)
    35,000 square feet of mowing. in 37 separate areas
    50% would need to be bagged or mulched
    25% would need to be done with 22"
    25% with a 36"

    spaying for weeds in beds and parking lot. ( very little just would have to do a walk threw and keep them in line)

    Plus roughly 500 linear feet of hedges to be trimmed 4' high

    This job also will include a major renovation (shrubs, flowers, etc.. etc...) that will be for latter.

    How much would you charge? There are so many variables, I have come up with several different numbers and I'm just trying to narrow the field a little before I turn in my bid.

    thanks guys, All input is appreciated.

    I just saw that my post says "spaying" for weeds instead of "Spraying". Spaying the weeds might be the better way to go seeing they wont be able to reproduce. lol!!
