Default First Commercial Proposal & Contract

This is my first commercial property proposal. I really need help with a template for a proposal right now. Then, I will need help with a contract template. I also would like help pricing this property. I will be doing all lawn maintenance (mowing, edging, weed eating, blowing, trimming shrubbery, trimming trees extra, irrigation, pond cleaning-not chemicals)

Can someone please help? Thanks!

Welcome to our forum!

First off, have you talked to this property owner yet? Did they tell you what they wanted you to bid on? Have they given you a list of services they wanted?

Give us a little background. Is this your first commercial property? Do you perform lawn care for residential customers too?

Have you looked through the collection of lawn care proposals and contracts here?

I need help with a bid - in nj. How about a small strip plaza. Probably 1 hr weekly for 2 guys for the cutting and trimming.

How would you price it?

Welcome to our forum!

First off, what do you normally charge per hour for your services? Can you go off that and bid the property on that figure or is there a problem with that?
