    I recently was asked to place a bid on a local business in my town. I've been in the mowing business for 5 years now, but it has all been residential. I've already been on the site, talked with the person overseeing this whole deal, and walked around the site to write down info for giving a bid. My question is this: how would I go about getting a contract signed? Do I create the contract myself, with an in-depth description of what I will be maintaining? Or is there already a "form" that most lawn services abide by? If anyone can send me a sample of what to include on the contract, how to go about making it official so there are no questions in the future months while under contract, or if I'm going about this all wrong, I would appreciate it. Someone, please point me in the right direction!
