Please check out my handwritten bid and tell me how you think a homeowner would react to the lay out and accuracy. If you have any input good or bad please let me know. Its a work in progress. And I think far better than using the handwrittin estimate book I got at Staples. I also have a basic package bid im working on. Thanks!

Don't underline everything. It looks "amateurish" like that.

You can underline the headings if you must, but they are already bold, so it's not necessary.

I'm a graphic designer, so I can give input on that part. I don't know enough about "contracts" to comment on the wording. (Although it reads pretty well for the most part)

Looking at it from your point of view it does look amateurish underlined. Thanks for the constructive criticism.

Have you checked out any of the free lawn care contracts (http://www.gopherforum.com/showthread.php?t=7210) here?

Did you see any that might be helpful?

Your contract gets the basic idea across and will probably be fine but if you want to see what others have done, their examples may inspire your wording and design.

Keep us posted.
