I've seen some great advice given out on this site, so i thought i would give this a shot. I'm a new, small operation geared towards residential, suburban type contracts. I got a call from this apartment complex, and if anything, this is a great excersize in learning to make competitive commercial proposals of this caliber. Oh, and while i don't currently have the staff to cover this, i do have help i can hire. Here's the breakdown: Total area including bldgs, parking lots and walkways is 849,232 ft sq. Grass needing weekly mow is 117,964 sq ft, spread all over the complex, as you can see. Roughly 350 trees under 10ft, 800 or so odd bushes, ground cover, shrubs. So, weekly mow, trim, edge, fertilize 3x, pruning of trees and shrubs... I've used a variety of formulas, calculators, and other tools i could find online. I'm very curious as to the wealth of advice and direction to be found here. I admit, i have zero experience bidding on properties this big, so i don't assume to know anything as related to this type of commercial property. Im open to any and all thoughts in regards to turning in a competitive, comprehensive proposal. Thanks in advance.
