    I dont know why the GIS pic wont upload. But lets try this. http://maps.nwpcog.org/Freeance/Clie...YadkinGISSite2

    On the left side it says search this map. Click owner search and type in Oakwood. Then click go. It will pull up two. Click on either on of the nc pin numbers. Both are the same property. One is the front half and the other is the rear half. Im bidding for all as one. Sorry for all the trouble!

            What other figures would you feel would have to be added for the other services?

                2hr mow. 1hr trim, 1.5 blow, 2hr edge, 1hr shrubs, 30min trash. that 8 hr a week. 35hr =280 a week. Last time I figured 7hr not 8.

                I also think it would take longer to line trim most places than to edge it. If your spraying round up it will need it more like monthly and that would need factoring in

                  I guess you mean for the part where the bid says to: "Beds, natural areas, sidewalks, parking lots and street maintained free of grass and or weeds."

                  How many hours per month do you think this would take?

                  Why so?
