    Just a general idea guys,

    What's your range for your strata buildings? I just recently had an invitation to bid on a housing from strata. This strata is a mini me complex.. 63 units!

    Weekly mowing I was guessing like $45-50 weekly.
    Weekly garden bed maint I was looking at like $60 a week?
    trees/shrubs pruned/fertilized twice a year
    lawn limed once a year
    lawn fert twice a year march/august


    I was looking at like 500-600 a month!

    They want someone to start next week, their last landscaper sucked and she was so choked!


    :confused: :confused:

    63 units at $15 to $30 per unit = $945 to $1890, depending on the amount of work. I think that you are kind of low.

    Hmmmm... the grass is approx only uhmmm

    8000 sq feet.. all flat..
    front (6000 sq feet)
    back (2000 sq feet)
    edging can be done on 1 side only.

    Hard to say, maybe I was looking @ 700 - 900 a month..

    Is this an apartment? Because that would seriously change the bid. Much less work in general with apartments vs. condos/townhouses
