Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Check out the "customer letters" section up top...I'm almost certain there's a template in there you could use. For the fertilizer, it really depends on your cost. I tend to charge in the same ballpark as mowing, since the extra time from mowing about balances with the extra cost for the fertilizer (I do all my mowing with a push mower...so that factors in)

John,

I hope you found the letter helpful.

If you could share with us some insight on what you were bidding on it could help a lot of other readers too figure out how to bid.

Thanks!

Did you get a web hosting site yet? Can you download the template you want, unzip it and then upload it to your server?
